The Guyana Amazon Warriors haven’t had the best of starts in the CPL campaign in 2020. Their batting has been all over the place and their bowling army, characterised by spinners haven’t choked teams as well as their batting has floundered. All of that took a U-turn in the last game with Nicholas Pooran single-handedly winning the game for them.
Against Barbados Tridents, who have appeared all over the place, Guyana will once again need their batsmen to fire, possibly in unison this time. The Tridents coped terrible losses against Knight Riders, where they failed to defend a high total and Zouks, where they failed to chase down 93. They will desperately want to make a comeback here.
The Trinbago Knight Riders continued their winning run even without Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine. Kieron Pollard has been exemplary as leader and batsman for then. The Tallawahs will have the services of Andre Russell again after a knee flare up and will be watched out this time around. They have the batting strength to silence the Knight Riders.
Guyana have won against Tridents twice the number of times they have lost.
The overall head-to-head record Tridents and Guyana is interesting with Guyana having won 10 matches compared to Tridents’ five. They haven’t met yet in 2020, but in the last two years, Guyana boast of a 4-2 win-loss record. They, however, went on to lose the finals of the 2019 CPL to the Tridents.
RECOMMENDED BET: Trinbago Knight Riders to win the title at 2.50
The Tallawahs have gotten the better of Trinbago Knight Riders in the overall records with them having nine wins compared to Knight Riders’ eight. However, since 2019, including the game this season, the Tallawahs have lost all three matches against the Knight Riders.
Keep an eye on…
Nicholas Pooran and Tridents bowling: The Guyana batsman loves batting in the death and is up against the poorest bowling attack in the death overs, the Tridents. It’ll be a tough ask for the Tridents to contain Pooran who is coming off the back of a belligerent century against the Patriots. Tridents, though, have made it a habit to attack early with the ball to get the opposition’s best batters in before the death. Cam Guyana work a way around that?
Kieron Pollard: The Trinbago Knight Riders skipper has walked in at the right time in each of the games for his team. His death overs hitting has been outrageous and the Tallawahs will be scared for sure. Their bowling has come a cropper this CPL and Pollard has the brute power and raw thinking to hurt them big time.
Featured Bet: Trinbago Knight Riders are priced at 1.64 to beat Jamaica Tallawahs
Guyana Amazon Warriors are priced at 1.86 to beat Barbados Tridents
