The two teams, Barbados Tridents and Guyana Amazon Warriors played against each other recently on 1st September 2020 in the Fun88 sponsored Caribbean Premier League. The match which was predicted to be won by Guyana Amazon Warriors by many fans saw the team take on the Barbados Tridents team as they restricted them to a score of 92 runs in the first innings of the game and easily achieved the targeted score to win that match. After this one-sided match, the two teams are set to face each other again on CPL 2020 match 26 scheduled to be played on 3rd September.
Heading into the next match, let’s take a look at the teams’ preview and match predictions with Cricdaddy CPL 2020:
- Barbados Tridents Team Preview– The defending Champions of the last year’s CPL tournament are having a tough time to survive in the CPL 2020 edition. The team’s star batting line-up with Captain Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Corey Anderson, and Johnson Charles have been in unbelievably poor form throughout this tournament. On Tuesday night, in the game against the Guyana Amazon Warriors, the batting crew of the team hit rock bottom when they were reduced to 27 for 8 in just 12 overs, with zero boundaries till that stage.
Mitchell Santner was the only player who saved the team from embarrassment after scoring 36 runs off 27 balls, including a 48-run partnership with Rashid Khan. Even the bowling unit was not able to defend such a low score of 92 against the Warriors.
- Guyana Amazon Warriors Team Preview– Currently standing at no. 3 position on the CPL 2020 points table, the Guyana Amazon Warriors with 8 points, crushed their next match opponents Barbados Tridents in their last match against each other. The Warrior’s bowling unit performed beyond expectation when their two key bowlers Naveen-ul-Haq finished with amazing figures of 4 for 14 and Chris Green completed with an excellent figure of 4-2-3-1.
Key batsmen Nicholas Pooran did not have a great day at the crease as he only scored 18 runs off 33 balls and without hitting a boundary. However, star batsman Brandon King who has struggled throughout the start of this CPL 2020, scored a top-notch first half-century of this tournament surviving all of Rashid Khan’s spells and also ended up at 51 not-out. He and Pooran together ended the match with a 58-run partnership with 20 more balls to spare.
Match predictions- Even though the Guyana Amazon Warriors did not seem to be inconsistent form in CPL 2020, they seem to have gained their power and winning streak back in the game. However, after following all the games and news about the Barbados Tridents, we do not think the team is going to get back in form this year. The Tridents have failed to give their best performance throughout the tournament even after having experienced and star players in their team. As per the Cricdaddy CPL 2020 predictions,we are confident that Guyana Amazon Warriors are going to win this match against the Barbados Tridents on Thursday.
