Predicted Playing XIs
Trinbago Knight Riders
Trinbago Knight Riders top-order have struggled to score runs in this year’s CPL. Lendl Simmons and Sunil Narine will need to ensure they get their side off to a good start. Pollard & Tim Seifert will look to carry forward the momentum in today’s match.
TKR’s bowling attack helped them to win the clash against St Lucia Kings. Ravi Rampaul picked up three wickets while Isuru Udana grabbed two. The two spinners, Akeal Hosein and Sunil Narine did a good job with the ball, picking wickets and keeping things tight.
Predicted XI: Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Tion Webster, Kieron Pollard (c), Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Akeal Hosein, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ravi Rampaul, Isuru Udana, Jayden Seales.
Guyana Amazon Warriors
Mohammad Hafeez’s 70 along with Hetmyer’s 52 helped them to register a total of 166 against ST Kitts & Nevis Patriots. It was Hetmyer’s second fifty of the tournament and he has had a good run so far. However, the likes of skipper Nicholas Pooran, Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, and Shoaib Malik need to step up their game with the bat in this upcoming CPL fixture.
Apart from spinners, Warriors bowling attack looked average. Imran Tahir stood out with figures of 2/26, while Hafeez and Malik were economical. The pacer’s performance was below the mark and need to better their performance.
Predicted XI: Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Odean Smith, Shoaib Malik, Nicholas Pooran (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Mohammad Hafeez, Anthony Bramble, Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.
Though Guyana Amazon Warriors have some big guns in their line-up, they still lack consistency so far. Trinbago had their issues with the bat but they appear to be stronger than Warriors by registering two wins in CPL 2021. Thus Pollard & Co will look forward to extending their winning run by sealing today’s match.
Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders to win.
