Guyana Amazon Warriors will lock horns with St Lucia Zouks in the second semi-final of the CPL 2020. Guyana Amazon Warriors is the second-best team from the league stage. Also, they are one of the most successful CPL franchise as they have made it to semis in all the earlier season of CPL. Out of 7 semifinals earlier, Warriors won five times and lost in 2015 and 2017 CPL edition. Moreover, they are coming into this game on the back of 4 wins in a row. Their key batsman N Pooran and S Hetmyer are in good touch and playing sensibly. On the other hand, Imran Tahir has bowled remarkably well and he is currently second-highest leading wicket-taker.

On the other hand, St Lucia Zouks are having their best season of CPL as it will be their first-ever appearance in CPL semi-final, courtesy the outstanding performance from bowling unit. Unlike Warriors, Zouks haven’t got plenty of T20 Stalwarts in their ranks, but Zouks unit collectively did the stupendous job to be a third-best team in the league stage. All-rounder, Rostan Chase and Mohammed Nabi were the key architects for Zouks success so far this season. Duo has contributed consistently with both bat and bowl.

Guyana Amazon Warriors

2019 runner-up team, Guyana Amazon Warriors will be very positive when they take on Zouks following their success in most recent games. Warriors are one of the most successful CPL team in the history of CPL. After losing a crucial game early in the league stage, they came back strongly and registered 4 consecutive wins to make it semis. In the batting department, Warriors got two of the best Windies youngsters in their ranks, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran. Both batsmen made their mark in international and T20 leagues by their power-hitting and match-winning ability.

Ones again the onus will be on this batting duo to do the bulk of the scoring. In batting, Warriors also have the Kiwi great Ross Taylor. He is a very senior player in the team and his experience will be very vital to guide the team in such a pressure game.

St Lucia Zouks

St Lucia Zouks has played some outstanding cricket so far this season. They have won four games while defending the below-par scores and in two achieved a target.

The all-rounder duo will be aiming to carry on the good form and help Zouks to register maiden semifinal win.

In the top-order batting, Andre Fletcher has played few decent knocks. However, he is the player of great caliber and hence team would be hoping for big knocks from him. Afghanistan left-handed batsman, Najibullah Zadran has been doing a wonderful job for his team in the middle order.  Zadran smashed 200 runs so far form earlier 10 games. In the bowling department, SC Kuggeleijn and Kesrick Williams bowled remarkably in the previous games.

The weather will be partly cloudy with a 70% chance for rain. The seamers will get assitance on this pitch. As it is the surface has been overused in the tournament so far and might play a little slow. Hope the rain stays away so that we get a cracker of a game.

Venue Details

The match will be played at Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad. The ground was constructed in 2017 and has capacity to hold 15,000 people. It has a history of hosting 3 CPL finals in 2017, 2018, and 2019 season of the tournament.

Toss Prediction

From the earlier five games played at this venue, two games were won by batting first team and three games by a chasing team. Spinners are likely to get some assistance from the pitch. Hence, considering the weather conditions and latest record, the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.

Winning Prediction

We expect it to be a cracking game as both the teams have played some good quality cricket in the league stage. Warriors have plenty of batting firepower and good quality spinners. Statistically, warriors hold the upper hand playing versus Zouks, as they won 10 out of 15 games between them. Also, Warriors are coming to this game on the back of success in the last four games and hence the momentum is with them.

We predict Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this game.
