After a long pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Caribbean Premier League is the first T20 format tournament to be played in cricket. The league has officially begun from 18th August 2020 and has started on a high note. Cricket fans from all over the world are closely following all the matches, giving their predictions, and placing their bet to win some money while watching the games. To help you out for match 16th of the tournament that is going to be played between Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders, here is what our analysis and predictions for the match are:
Match 16th: Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Trinbago Knight Riders
Guyana Amazon Warriors are known to be an unlucky team since they have ended up being runners up five times in the tournament history. This year the team is looking forward to changing that and win the title. They have a good mixture of experienced and young players. Their key players include Imran Tahir and Ross Taylor with a lot of experience and young stars like Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, and Sherfane Rutherford. Since their experienced players are quite old, they lack the T20 speed required to win matches, and hence the team is heavily dependent on its young key players. Most of these players are untested and have not played in high-pressure matches like this. Lack of experience and ability to handle the pressure in games like this is the reason this team has ended up as runners up on multiple occasions.
Former IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders have a stake in this Trinidad based CPL team. Trinbago Knight Riders is a very successful CPL team and are three times champions winning the title in 2013, 2017, and 2018. They have not missed a single qualifiers stage in the previous editions of the league. The strength of the team is experienced and high-impact players like Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, etc. These are all well-experienced and accomplished T20 players which is a major benefit for the team. When a team is such well-rounded and has such powerful T20 players, it is really hard to beat them. They have also added veteran player Pravin Tambe to their rosters this year to add a new variety to their attacking line-up. However, one of the major things this team lacks is- bowlers. Narine is the only good bowler the team has and this is their weakness, from which the opposition can get benefited.
However, both the teams are strong contenders of the league and have high chances of winning the tournament this year. Talking about this particular match between Trinbago and Guyana, when you take a look at their previous performances and overall players’ impact, Trinbago has more chances of winning the match against Guyana. Now the experience of the key players and the fresh talent of the young combined together is the only way for Guyana to win this match.
We hope our predictions for the above match will be proved right and help you win your bet. Just stay tuned!
