Guyana Amazon Warriors

Guyana Amazon Warriors are up against defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders in the inaugural match of Caribbean Premier League 2021. Guyana side is going into this tournament as one of the favorites as they have many big match-winners like Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, and a solid bowling lineup led by veteran Imran Tahir.

Guyana Amazon Warriors squad looks very solid with a strong batting core but their weakness might be in the bowling lineup as only Imran Tahir is an experienced player. Young Afghani pacer Naveen-ul-Haq, who was a T20 Blast top wicket-taker will lead the Guyanese seam bowling lineup along with young prospects like Romario Shepherd.

  • Guyana Amazon Warriors finished 2nd last year in the points table.
  • Guyanese side lost both matches against TKR last season.

Top Batsmen 

  • Shoaib Malik- 10741 runs at 126.66 strike rate 
  • Nicholas Pooran- 3415 runs at 142.41 strike rate
  • Shimron Hetmyer– 1836 runs at 140.95 strike rate

Trinbago Knight Riders 

Trinbago Knight Riders are reigning defending champions and were Invincibles last year. This year again Trinbago Knight Riders are the biggest contenders for the tournament under the leadership of Kieron Pollard. Although this year, they will be missing the services of Dwayne Bravo who has now joined another side but still their squad looks very solid and strong.

TKR has many big match-winners especially their captain Kieron Pollard who was in outrageous form last year. This year they have added Dinesh Ramdin to their squad for more balance and Colin Munro has again returned to don the red and gold jersey. Trinbago’s side is a balanced side and their bowling is equally strong as batting with many stars like Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul, and Akeal Hosein in their ranks.

  • Trinbago Knight Riders were unbeaten last year.
  • Lendl Simmons was last year’s CPL top scorer.

Top Batsmen 

  • Kieron Pollard- 10898 runs at 152.84 strike rate

Weather Report

The Weather will be perfect to play. There is no significant chance of rain. In the last series of the West Indies and Pakistan, 3 matches out of 4 were washed out but this time around Weather is clean with no significant chance of any interruption. Although strong will be a strong factor and assist seamers early on.

  • Rain: 4%
  • Humidity 66%
  • Wind speed: 23 km/h.
  • Temperature- 30 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

Warner Park is traditionally a batting-friendly track and the average total here is 166 runs. But the last T20 game was held here back in January 2020. There will be good bounce and carry and the ball will come on the bat. We can expect an even contest between bat and bowl but strong wind in initial overs will give bowlers a big edge.

GUY vs TKR– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Trinbago Knight Riders is expected to win the match against Guyana Amazon Warriors

KhelTalk experts feel that Trinbago Knight Riders will win against Guyana Amazon Warriors in this encounter. Trinbago Knight Riders is a solid unit and they have almost the same squad as last year. TKR was unbeaten last year and this year also they will be hoping to continue their incredible run.

On the other hand, Guyana Amazon Warriors is also a strong side with many explosive hitters like Pooran and Hetmyer but they have a very weak bowling department with only Tahir as a proven performer. We expect Trinbago Knight Riders to be the better side on this track and beat Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Top Batsman from Guyana Amazon Warriors – Nicholas Pooran (5.00 odds) 

Nicholas Pooran had not a good 2021 so far but he would be hoping to turn things around in this tournament. Pooran is very destructive and has the ability to win matches on his own. His bat swing is his biggest strength and on the batting-friendly track of Warner Park, he can be the most destructive batsman. He is our pick for best batsman from Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Top Batsman from Trinbago Knight Riders  – Lendl Simmons (3.75 odds)

Lendl Simmons was last year’s CPL highest run-scorer with 356 runs and hopes are again high on him to continue his blistering form. Lendl Simmons is now a regular in the West Indies T20 side and this CPL season is really crucial for him to seal his birth for WT20 as there are many competitors looking at the opening slot in the West Indies team. Simmons is an experienced campaigner and knows how to handle pressure and can give you good returns.

Top Bowler from Trinbago Knight Riders – Sunil Narine (3.75 odds)

Sunil Narine will be crucial for TKR in defending their championship. Narine missed last season but is set to return this season but with extra responsibility as Bravo has left Trinbago side and Narine is the leader of the attack. Narine has had a decent 2021 so far.

He was dropped from the KKR side in this year’s IPL and in recent The Hundred also he was decent. Sunil Narine is a match-winner and he would be raring to go and prove his haters wrong. He is our pick for best bowler from Trinbago Knight Riders.

Top Bowler from Guyana Amazon Warriors– Imran Tahir (3.60 odds) 

Imran Tahir is a legend of the game and is coming off an excellent Hundred tournament. He notched up a Hattrick there and was instrumental in Birmingham Phoenix’s run to the final in the tournament. Imran Tahir will be leading this Guyana Amazon Warriors young bowling lineup. Last year also, he was with them and played a crucial role in middle overs for them. Imran Tahir is a proven match-winner and can destroy any lineup with his googlies. He can give you good returns.
