PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Guyana Amazon Warriors won the toss in each of their final two group matches, most recently fielding first. Barbados Tridents could choose that same tactic.
Expecting some thunderstorms earlier in the day in Guyana, but they are forecast to clear by the time this game takes place. The chance of rain drops considerably through the afternoon and with high temperatures.
GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS
- Qais Ahmad and Romario Shepherd were replaced by Odean Smith and Ben Laughlin in the final group match.
- Even Shepherd had not bowled in the final group game either. Ahmad could be recalled on a turning wicket.
- Guyana Amazon Warriors won all ten matches in the league and became the first team in the Caribbean Premier League history to finish the group stage with a perfect record.
- Shoaib Malik’s 73 helped them recover from 8/4 to post 156/6 against Jamaica Tallawahs before Imran Tahir took 3-12 as they skittled the visitors for 79.
- Chandrapaul Hemraj led the bowling, taking 3-15 as they restricted Trinbago Knight Riders to 143/5 before Nicholas Pooran’s unbeaten 54 helped them to a seven-wicket win.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS
Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shoaib Malik (c), Sherfane Rutherford, Chris Green, Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd, Imran Tahir, Qais Ahmad
- Harry Gurney and Shakib Al Hasan made Barbados Tridents finish the group stage of CPL 2019 strongly, and they were expecting to have Shai Hope fit for the play-offs too after he missed every game so far.
- Jonathan Carter and Justin Greaves look more likely to make way.
- Barbados Tridents won three of their last four games to climb up the table and into the play-offs.
- It is no coincidence that their upturn in form followed the arrival of the likes of Harry Gurney and Shakib Al Hasan.
- The former took 3-17 as they bowled St Lucia Zouks out for 117 in reply to 141/6 – though Hayden Walsh did outshine him with 4-26.
- Then, Gurney and Shakib took two wickets apiece last time out as they restricted Trinbago Knight Riders to 134/8 before Johnson Charles’ half-century earned a seven-wicket win.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF BARBADOS TRIDENTS
Johnson Charles, Alex Hales, Shakib Al Hasan, JP Duminy, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Jonathan Carter, Raymon Reifer, Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh Jr, Harry Gurney
