Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Caribbean Premier League 2019 - Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Zouks
The second match of the Caribbean Premier League 2019 will be played between Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
Guyana Amazon Warriors have been the most consistent team in CPL but the rub of the green has not gone in their favour. The Warriors have reached the finals in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018 but are yet to win the title.
Nicholas Pooran has been named the marquee player for the Warriors and will partner Shimron Hetmyer as the two add firepower in the team's batting order. Sherfane Rutherford will further add to the team's explosiveness.
Shoaib Malik, after his decently successful Global T20 campaign, will bring a calm head in the side. The other notable names are Shadab Khan, Keemo Paul, Ben Laughlin and Chris Green.
The contract of St Lucia Stars has been terminated and St Lucia Zouks will now replace them. Essentially, it is the same set of players and the coaching staff, playing with the name that they originally began with and kept until 2017.
Darren Sammy has been retained by the franchise and will be one of the most senior players in the team, along with Sri Lankan veteran pacer Lasith Malinga. Andre Fletcher, Niroshan Dickwella and John Campbell will be their leading batsmen while Kesrick Williams, Obed McCoy, Fawad Ahmed and Malinga will be their main bowlers.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Guyana Amazon Warriors- Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Keegan Simmons, Shoaib Malik, Sherfane Rutherford, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shadab Khan, Chris Green, Keemo Paul, Nicholas Pooran, Anthony Bramble, Ben Laughlin, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Veerasammy Permaul, Clinton Pestano, Saurabh Netravalkar
St Lucia Zouks- Andre Fletcher, Ronald Cato, Andre McCarthy, Keddy Lesporis, Nitish Kumar, Darren Sammy, Kesrick Williams, John Campbell, Christopher Barnwell, Thisara Perera, Rahkeem Cornwall, Jeavor Royal, Niroshan Dickwella, Lasith Malinga, Fawad Ahmed, Obed McCoy, Beuran Hendricks
