St Lucia Zouks and Guyana Amazon Warriors will meet in the second fixture of the day to take 2nd spot in the table. Both sides had stunned the defending champions in the low-scoring games. St Lucia had a solid campaign in Caribbean T20 League this season and before playing their all matches, they qualified into the semifinals. In their entire tournament history, they are going to finish in the top two for the first time. Darren-Sammy led side has lost only two games this season. In the previous encounter, Captain Sammy proved that why he is 2-times T20 WC winning captain. After a batting debacle against Barbados Tridents, St Lucia pulled off a great comeback by defending a mere total of 92. At one stage, Tridents required 30 runs from the last 7 overs with 7 wickets in hand but St Lucia took the game with 3 runs to create a record of defending the lowest total in T20s.
Meanwhile, Guyana also put a remarkable show against defending champions following the Pooran-show against St Kitts. In the previous encounter, Guyana humiliated Barbados and picked 8 wickets on just 29 runs. Santner showed a steady approach to take Barbados to 92 and Guyana chased it down, riding on Brendon King’s half-century. Guyana have two more games left and they are strong enough to make into the top four. Both sides are in top form and it might be a cracking game of T20.
Brian Lara Stadium is a decent T20 ground and it requires sensible batting against the spinners. Being the 2nd game of the day, scoring might be lower but it will be a good scoring game. A score of around 150 is safe with a strong bowling unit.
