Match Details:

The Match 29 of the Caribbean Premier League 2019 between Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs will be hosted by Providence Ground, Guyana.

The match starts at 6:00 PM local time (Oct 3); 10:00 PM GMT (Oct 3); 3:30 AM IST (Oct 4). This tournament will be live on Star Sports 2 and Star Sports 2 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Hotstar.



Table-toppers, Guyana Amazon Warriors resume their home leg at the Providence Stadium as they host Jamaica Tallawahs in Match 29 of CPL 2019. Both teams find themselves at opposite ends of the points table with the home side boasting of eight wins out of eight games so far. They are already assured of a top-two finish which gives them two attempts at making it to the final. Jamaica Tallawahs will love to end a disappointing season on a high with ample firepower in their side as well. The result of this game doesn’t have any bearing on the points table with their fates sealed last week.

The previous encounter between the two sides saw Guyana hammer the Tallawahs by 81 runs. The top performers in the game were Shoaib Malik and Imran Tahir, who picked up the all-important wickets of Tahir and Walton within the powerplay itself. Both sides are expected to make a few changes with the nature of the match. Nevertheless, an entertaining game of cricket beckons with the likes of Shimron Hetmyer and Chris Gayle taking it to the field for this game.

Weather Condition/Report:

Clear weather is on the cards for this game with a no chance of rain interrupting the game. According to AccuWeather, humid conditions are expected with a humidity percentage around the 70-run mark. The temperatures should hover between 28 and 30 degrees Celsius during the course of the match.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch favours the spinners with turn found in abundance at the Providence Ground. Inspite that, it is traditionally a high-scoring pitch with scores of over 150 being a common sight. The relatively shorter boundaries also favour the batsmen which bodes well for a competitive game of cricket.

Average first innings score: 163 (3 CPL 2019 Matches at Providence Ground)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 4 (Matches since the start of CPL 2018)

Injury and Availability News:

(Will be added when there is an update)

Probable Playing XIs:

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Keegan Simmons,  Brandon King,  Shimron Hetmyer,  Shoaib Malik (C),  Nicolas Pooran (WK),  Sherfane Rutherford,  Chris Green,  Keemo Paul,  Romario Shepherd,  Qais Ahmed  and  Ben Laughlin

Bench:  Imran Tahir,  Chanderpaul Hemraj,  Odean Smith,  Anthony Bramble,  Veerasammy Permaul,  Clinton Pestano

Jamaica Tallawahs:

Chris Gayle,  Glenn Phillips (WK),  Dwayne Smith,  Liton Das,  Chadwick Walton (C),  Trevor Griffith,  Imran Khan,  Shamar Springer,  Ramaal Lewis,  Zahir Khan,  Jade Dernbach.

Bench:  Daniel Christian,  Josh Lalor,  Leniko Boucher,  Josh Bishop,  Chemar Holder,  Roshon Primus

Top Picks:

In spite of Jamaica Tallawahs’ troubles on the pitch, one shining light for them has been Glenn Phillips. With 353 runs to his name, Phillips has held one end up for the Tallawahs without much support from the other in CPL 2019. Shimron Hetmyer managed to score some runs against TKR earlier in the week and will relish a return to his home ground. Another Guyana player who made an impact against TKR is Chris Green. The Aussie picked two wickets and would certainly be a threat at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Captain – Shimron Hetmyer,  Chris Green,  Glenn Phillips

Vice-Captain – Sherfane Rutherford,  Chris Gayle,  Shoaib Malik

Shimron Hetmyer’s ability to go big against the spinners makes him the preferred choice over Glenn Phillips as the top pick.

Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:

Keeper – Glenn Phillips (VC),  Liton Das

Batsmen – Sherfane Rutherford,  Shimron Hetmyer (C),  Chris Gayle

All-Rounders – Shoaib  Malik,  Keemo Paul,  Imran Khan

Bowlers – Zahir Khan,  Ben Laughlin  and  Chris Green

Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:

Keeper – Glenn Phillips

Batsmen – Dwayne Smith,  Shimron Hetmyer (C),  Chris Gayle,  Brandon King

All-Rounders – Shoaib Malik,  Keemo Paul

Bowlers – Chris Green (VC),  Ben Laughlin,  Ramaal Lewis,  Shamar Springer

Expert Advice:

Spinners are key on this surface with the likes of Chris Green and Zahir Khan available for a reasonable price of 8.5 credits each. Sherfane Rutherford hasn’t had much to do this CPL 2019 owing to Guyana’s top order. Expect him to be promoted up the order in order to get some time in the middle before the start of the playoffs.

Probable Winners:

A ninth win in CPL 2019 beckons for the home side against a hapless Jamaica Tallawahs outfit.
