Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction for CPL 2018 Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs
Having already qualified for the playoffs, Jamaica Tallawahs and Guyana Amazon Warriors would like to blood in some youngsters and see how they react in match scenarios.
Trinbago Knight Riders have been the favourites in the tournament till now and sit comfortably at the top of the table with seven wins from nine matches. The other three teams which have qualified for the playoffs are tied at five points each.
In their last match, Amazon Warriors were totally outplayed by Trinbago Knight Riders as Colin Munro's explosive 90-run knock did not allow the team come back. As a result, they lost by a huge margin of 67 runs.
Jamaica Tallawahs' last match brought a touch of misfortune for them as rain played spoilsport. Chasing a target of 207, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots were 118 for three midway when rain arrived. The match could not be played any further and it was awarded to the Patriots.
Glenn Phillips has been the star batsman for Jamaica Tallawahs. Ross Taylor and David Miller have also won them a couple of matches. Andre Russell has done what Andre Russell does.
Adam Zampa has been replaced by Ish Sodhi and he may come in handy for the Tallawahs. Imad Wasim has also bowled with great control.
The opening pair of Chadwick Walton and Luke Ronchi has found some form in the recent times but the responsibility will again lie on the young shoulders of Shimron Hetmyer.
Keemo Paul, Imran Tahir and Rayad Emrit would be expected to pick up a few wickets with ball in hand.
