Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) vs Guyana Amazon Warriors (GUY)

Guyana and Trinbago set to kick start CPL 2020

It’s time for the first of the mega T20 leagues to kick start cricket after a long forced break due to the pandemic. The CPL is all set for the action-packed schedule in Trinidad. In the opener of the tournament, two of the League’s most successful franchises Trinidad Knight Riders take on last year’s runners-up Guyana Amazon Warriors on Tuesday at Brian Lara Stadium. Both sides have made it to the knockout stages in every edition of the league. The Knight Riders have been crowned as Champions twice but the Warriors are yet to cross the last hurdle even after coming into the finals thrice. Both sides are loaded with power-packed batsmen and all-rounders who are world-class players that are also going to be hot picks for this contest.

Pitch Report


The surface at Brian Lara Stadium has produced good sporting games with an average score of around 130 in the last few seasons. The short dimensions of the ground will pose a challenge for spinners. The forecast for the game doesn’t seem promising with a 60% chance of rain prediction throughout the match.


Must have players


Sunil Narine

He is one of the hottest picks all around the world across various T20 leagues. In CPL it’s no different, where he has a PPM of 41 and an MDTA of 1.57 from 44 matches. The ground may be small but for his ability, and it’s not a factor. His fireworks at the top order may be an advantage at this venue.


Kieron Pollard

The veteran all-rounder and the Knight Rider’s captain is an irresistible pick to leave out from any fantasy team. His PPM.of 52 and MDTA of 1.39 is an indication of his consistency in the league. He is a great option to try at captaincy in GL, but in SL team the same does not apply as he bats below his potential.


Imran Tahir

He is just getting better with age. His wealth of experience and caliber makes him a must-have in the fantasy team. He has an impressive PPM of 45 and an MDTA of 1.31 in 21 matches.


X factor players / Big bets


Lendl Simmons

The opening batsman is known for producing big knocks whenever he gets going. Given the conditions on offer and personnel in the opposition bowling line-up we expect him to have a good day in the office.
