Why is this a good bet?
Guyana Warriors, after off to a slow start, have picked up the slack beautifully. Having won their last four matches in the CPL, the boys are now looking to reach their first-ever final in the history of the tournament.
Meanwhile, Zouks have lost their touch in recent matches. Plus, the wounds from their recent defeat to the Amazon Warriors are still fresh.
That said, they are a formidable opponent who have a lot of fight left in them. In either case, the two sides are ripe with talented batsmen who bound to find many boundaries during the game. However, it is unlikely that we will see it rain fours and sixes, hence our wager to back under 18.5 fours.
Amazon Guyana Warriors’ recent form
Just a couple of weeks ago, it seemed quite unlikely that the Guyana Warriors will make it to the top four, let alone the playoffs.
However, all of that changed in no time, starting with a 7-wicket win over St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots. In a result that was largely unexpected, Nicholas Pooran, assisting the Warriors to chase a target of 151 runs, scored 100 off 45 balls to give his side a fighting chance.
It was as if they were reborn following that superb win. In the next game, they defeated Barbados Tridents by 8 wickets, chasing a meagre total of 93 runs. Navin-ul-Haq and Kevin Sinclair were the key bowlers who restricted the Tridents batsmen.
They then moved on to defeat the Zouks by 7 wickets, this time chasing 110 runs. Ul-Haq, Imran Tahir, and Keemo Paul had a superb time as bowlers while Shimron Hetmyer’s half-century all but sealed the win.
Lastly, they faced the Tridents once again and defeated them by 6 wickets. Interestingly, this time they were chasing a target of only 90 runs, courtesy of Tahir and Romario Shephard’s 3 wicket haul.
Clearly, the Warriors are at their best when they are chasing targets. This also explains the fact that 3 of the 4 losses they have incurred in this year’s CPL came when they were made to bat first.
The Warriors are chasing history and by all means, they have the right squad to achieve this feat. With a pretty strong bowling line-up and a decent variation in the batting order, they are all but roaring to get this game going. Tahir will be playing a key role in this game.
St. Lucia Zouks recent form
Zouks made it to the semifinal on the back of 6 wins and just 4 losses, similar to the Warriors.
However, they sealed their berth in the semis a while ago, courtesy of a decent start and massive blunders by other teams like Jamaica Tallawahs and the Tridents.
Their last fixture before the playoffs was against the Tallawahs, which they won by a close 11 runs. Before that, they lost to the Guyana Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders.
In fact, Zouks’ last win can be traced to August 30, when they defeated the Barbados Tridents by 3 runs. In a match where they set a target of 93 runs, it is fair to say that they got lucky in many ways.
Nonetheless, it isn’t to say that the Zouks are not a strong team. Javelle Glen and Kesrick Williams have been leading the way among the bowlers, with Mohammad Nabi pitching in on his best days. However, in terms of batting, Andre Fletcher can do with some assistance from the likes of Rahkeem Cornwall and Mark Deyal.
