Courtesy of remaining undefeated so far in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League, Jamaica Tallawahs are at the top of the points table. Guyana Amazon Warriors, on the other hand, are undefeated as well. Their opening match of the season against St Lucia Kings was called off due to rain, and in the last match, the Imran Tahir-led side decimated St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Hence, a blockbuster clash is expected when these two teams face each other on August 27 in St Kitts.
Notably, in the last match, Saim Ayub gave an excellent start to Guyana, while Shai Hope’s half-century helped the team post 197 runs on board. With the ball, Gudakesh Motie wreaked havoc, picking up four wickets in the process. Skipper Tahir, too was impressive as he picked up two. When it comes to Jamaica, their batters have done a commendable job so far. Brandon King and Sharmah Brooks will be key for the team, while Salman Irshad, who picked up four wickets in the last match, will be a force to reckon with.
