Guyana Amazon Warriors finally had their revenge by thrashing Trinbago Knight Riders by six wickets in their last match. TKR had made a few changes to their side. Apart from changing personnel at the top of the order, the opening pair of Colin Munro and Brendon McCullum who has replaced Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn did not fire this time around.
It were the innings from Denesh Ramdin, Darren Bravo and Kevin Cooper that took the team beyond 150. However, it was a sub par total as Cameron Delport, Shimron Hetmyer and Sherfane Rutherford chased the target easily with almost six overs remaining.
This victory would have certainly given Guyana Amazon Warriors a lot of confidence after their consecutive defeats. They have now climbed to the second spot. That being said, TKR still have a better record overall as they have won six of their last seven matches and have also beaten the Warriors five times in the last six fixtures between the two teams. Hence, TKR would be expected to clinch this rubber.
Sunil Narine and Ali Khan are expected to be back in the team. All rounder Kevin Cooper will retain his place after the new personnel provided them with a convincing victory. Roshan Primus, Keemo Paul and Veerasammy Permaul may not find a place in the final XI.
