Guyana Amazon Warriors will take on the upbeat Jamaica Tallawahs in match no. 9 of Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2016 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday.
Tallawahs have won both their matches so far in CPL 2016. Co-incidentally, Warriors too have won their first two matches in CPL 2016.
The top two teams of CPL 2016 will engage themselves in a fierce battle at the Providence Stadium. On the one hand, there is Chris Gayle (skipper of the Tallawahs), who has been in incredible form as he smashed his 18th T20 hundred in the last match. And on the other, the Martin Guptill-led Warriors will be looking for their third victory in the tournament as well.
Warriors have come up with good all-round performances in the first two games. Their batsmen Chris Lynn, Jason Mohammad, Dwayne Smith have all been amongst runs and their form will be crucial in Thursday's fixture against the Tallawahs. Pressure will be on their skipper Gutpill, who is yet to show his calibre in this format of the game. If he clicks, one can expect a lot of fireworks at the Providence Stadium on Thursday evening.
Expected playing XI:
Guyana Amazon Warriors: Dwayne Smith, Martin Guptill (C), Chris Lynn, Jason Mohammad, Chris Barnwell, Anthony Bramble (wk), Sohail Tanvir, Rayad Emrit, Veerasammy Permaul, Adam Zampa, Paul Wintz.
Jamaica Tallawahs: Chris Gayle (C), Chadwick Walton, Kumar Sangakkara (wk),Rovman Powell, Shakib Al Hasan, Andre Russell, Imad Wasim, Andre McCarthy, Dale Steyn, Kesrick Williams, Jon-Russ Jaggesar.
