CPL 2020, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs: Match Prediction
Both the teams have won once and lost once in this tournament. While Guyana Amazon Warriors started this tournament with a defeat, they claimed a victory in the next match. Meanwhile, Jamaica Tallawahs began this tournament with a victory but suffered a defeat in the next game.
Though the last year’s runners-up Warriors won their last match, their batting wasn’t convincing enough. Shimron Hetmyer played the most vital role in the batting line-up in both those matches, otherwise, they would have faced more embarrassment. Other batsmen will have to take more responsibilities. Their bowlers are performing well.
Jamaica Tallawahs have good all-rounders but their top-order batsmen are not providing positive starts, except Glenn Phillips.
Both these teams require better team performances to improve their game.
CPL 2020, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs: Dream 11, Fantasy Tips
Guyana Amazon Warriors
Both the openers Brandon King and Chanderpaul Hemraj haven’t impressed yet in this season. However, Shimron Hetmyer is in a dream form with the bat. Ross Taylor and Nicholas Pooran can also play vital roles in the batting line-up with the time progress.
While the leg-spinner Imran Tahir is the crucial bowler in this side, right-arm pacer Keemo Paul destroyed the opponent batting line-up in the last game.
Opener Glenn Phillips and middle-order batsman Asif Ali are in very good forms. They also have the useful T20 all-rounders like Andre Russell and Carlos Brathwaite.
Among the bowlers, spinners Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman etc. are very crucial.
