The 12th CPL 2020 game on an action-packed Tuesday sees the Guyana Amazon Warriors taking on the Jamaica Tallawahs at Queen’s park oval , port of Spain , Trinidad. After a poor CPL 2019 campaign and some radical changes in the roster, the Jamaica Tallawahs have one win in two matches so far with Glenn Phillips and Mujeeb ur Rehman looking in great touch. Despite boasting of perhaps the best T20 player in the world, aka Andre Russell, the Tallawahs are in for a stern test against a well-oiled unit in the form of the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Despite losing their first game to the Knight Riders, Guyana Amazon Warriors got the better of the patriots courtesy a Shimron Hetmyer special. They will be looking to sustain their newly found momentum against a solid Jamaica Tallawahs side that hasn’t hit their strides yet. With two of the best teams in the Caribbean Premier League facing off against one another, entertainment is a certainty in what promises to a thrilling encounter.

CPL20 : Match 12 : Team Player’s Information :
Jamaica Tallawahs will depend on their middle order to fire this CPL.
Kiwi Wicket-keeper batsman Glenn Philipps is set to open with Chadwick Walton this CPL season for Jamaica. One among Nicholas Kirton, Nkrumah Bonner and Jermaine Blackwood will be slotted in at 3, none of whom have been great in T20 cricket so far.
The middle order, comprising Andre Russell, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite and Asif Ali, has enough firepower to chase down any total. Though they are vulnerable against quality spin, the fact cannot be denied that Jamaica will be the most difficult teams to defend against.
The spin attack is led by Sandeep Lamicchane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Veerasammy Permaul, with Ramaal Lewis coming in as an all-rounder who bowls off-spin.
With a scary pace attack comprising Fidel Edwards, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas and Carlos Brathwaite, Jamaica have the potential to bounce out CPL oppositions. Because of the fact that they can get a minimum of 8 overs from the top 7, they have the luxury of playing a batting all-rounder in the form of Ramaal Lewis at 8 instead of a pure bowler.
Probable Playing XI: Glenn Philipps, Chadwick Walton, Nicholas Kirton, Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Brathwaite, Ramaal Lewis, Fidel Edwards, Sandeep Lamicchane, Oshane Thomas.
Guyana Amazon Warriors
The Guyana Amazon Warriors will fancy their chances this CPL.
The Warriors have one of the most formidable lineups this CPL season. Chanderpaul Hemraj and Brandon King form a terrific opening pair. At 3, they can slot in the explosive Shimron Hetmyer. Ross Taylor will most likely be playing the role of an anchor at 4. He can also be used as a floater, having the experience of finishing games.
Nicholas Pooran, one of the best batsmen in middle overs in the CPL, slots in at 5. Sherfane Rutherford and Keemo Paul at 6 and 7 will be tasked with finishing duties. With the overseas spinner Chris Green coming in at 8 the batting depth can be considered good enough.
Imran Tahir, Chris Green and U-19 spinner Ashmead Nedd constitute the spin department. Pace bowling is an area which Guyana might be little concerned about this CPL. There are not many big names in the pace department with Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd and Naveen-ul-Haq having to do the bulk of the task.
Probable Playing XI: Brandon King, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Ross Taylor, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green, Romario Shepherd, Imran Tahir, Naveen-ul-Haq.
Who will win GAW Vs JT cricket match predictions ?
It will be a game between two of the best sides in the Caribbean Premier League 2020. In the 12th game of the season, Guyana Amazon Warriors would be taking on the Jamaica Tallawahs in what promises to be an engaging contest. Both sides have so far played two games so far in the tournament and have won a game each. It is still early days in the season and they would be eager to go up on the points table. There are good hitters on both sides and we expect to see plenty of big-hitting during the course of the game.
It’s very close at the moment but Guyana Amazon Warriors look a better side with the ball and this would put them nose ahead of Jamaica Tallawahs in this contest.
