Guyana Amazon Warriors Preview
There is no let-off from poor form for Shimron Hetmyer’s team. The side played poorly in the last game against the Barbados Royals, going down by 29 runs under the DLS method. They are out of contention for a place in the next round and must play for their pride. It would be a tough challenge against the Jamaica Tallawahs, and Hetmyer would like to see a strong show from his team.
Paul Stirling and Chandrapaul Hemraj have struggled with their form, and the pair must deliver the goods in this game. Hetmyer must lead from the front in the middle order and make runs along with Keemo Paul and Heinrich Klaasen. The lower middle order has also not looked in great shape, and runs would be expected from the bats of Mohammad Nabi, Jermaine Blackwood, and Romario Shepherd in this game.
They would need good spells in the game from Shepherd and Keemo Paul with the new ball, as their opponents have a strong batting line-up. Imran Tahir hasn’t had the best year, and he must do well along with Nabi whose entry into the side strengthens the bowling attack. Junior Sinclair and Hemraj must bowl tight lines for the side to do well here.
Guyana Amazon Warriors Predicted Playing XI:
Shimron Hetmyer (c), Paul Stirling, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Jermaine Blackwood, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Junior Sinclair, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi
Jamaica Tallawahs Preview
Rovman Powell’s side is struggling with its form. They have lost thrice in the last four games after a brilliant start to the season. They batted poorly in the previous game against the Trinbago Knight Riders to go down by 4 wickets. The side would like to get back into form in this game and move closer to a berth in the Eliminator round.
Brandon King and Amir Jangoo failed to score runs in the last game, and a good start can put the side in a commanding position. The middle order has performed poorly in the last few games, and the likes of Shamarah Brooks, Powell, and Raymon Reifer must do well here. Imad Wasim and Fabian Allen are good hitters of the ball, and they must do well down the order.
Mohammad Amir and Chris Green have done well as a new ball pair and would look to strike early in this game. Imad Wasim would enjoy these conditions and must do well in the middle overs along with Fabian Allen. The side would need a good show in the supporting role from Migael Pretorius and Nicholson Gordon.
Jamaica Tallawahs Predicted Playing XI:
Rovman Powell (c), Brandon King, Amir Jangoo (wk), Shamarh Brooks, Raymon Reifer, Fabian Allen, Imad Wasim, Chris Green, Migael Pretorius, Mohammad Amir, Nicholson Gordon
There might be some cloud cover in Guyana on September 21, but the pitch would be a good one to bat on as we have seen in the past. The ball shall come onto the bat nicely, and batsmen can easily hit through the line. A run feast seems to be on the cards in the game.
Providence Stadium, Guyana, is one of the best T20 wickets in the Caribbean. The pitch has true bounce and pace, and it is easy to hit through the line of the ball. The shorter boundaries also make run-scoring easy. The spinners get some assistance as the game progresses.
Toss: To Bat
In most of the games played at this venue, the side batting first has had an advantage. The pitch is best to bat on in the first innings as it starts to get slower as the game progresses and assists the spinners. The side winning the toss won’t have any hesitation in opting to bat first in this game.
GAW vs JT
Guyana Amazon Warriors have not found their form this season. Most of their key players fail to deliver the goods, which adds to the site’s woes. They must bat well and have a good score on the board to put a challenge on their opponents. Jamaica Tallawahs is a far stronger side and has a powerful batting line-up. It would make them favorites in this game.
Jamaica Tallawahs to win.
