Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St Lucia Zouks, Caribbean Premier League, 2nd Semifinal, Match Prediction

Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks face each other in the 2nd semifinal of the Caribbean Premier League 2020

Match Timing: September 09, 3 AM IST 

Team Preview 

Tournament’s number two and number three team square off to enter into the Caribbean Premier League final. Guyana Amazon Warriors is the only team who had played 5 finals in the tournament history and St Lucia haven’t appeared in the final before. Guyana made a drastic change in the second half of the regular season, winning their previous four matches comprehensively and in all four matches, they chased down the targets which were a tough task for other teams. They claimed 2nd spot in the table with winning six games out of ten. Ahead of the semifinal, Brandon King also got runs and their middle-order issue has also been solved. The bowling trio Keemo Paul, Green, and Tahir are enough to snatch the game from any side. 

Meanwhile, St Lucia had a positive campaign far and they have been clinically good with their top bowling efforts. St Lucia were amongst the favourites to book the semifinal births and Sammy led the side in a smart way. In the previous encounter, they overcame Jamaica and defended 145 to bag the 3rd spot in the table. Roston Chase and Nabi both are the key assets for St Lucia and Kuggeleijn is also making an impact with the new ball. The middle-order might trouble St Lucia in the crunch game but they can have an upper hand if toss goes in their favor. 

Pitch Report 

Brian Lara Stadium is a pretty decent track for the T20 match and if offers a good amount of runs. Being the second game of the day, the surface can help spinners and it might be a low-scoring affair. In the knockout game, batting first would be an ideal call after winning the toss.
