Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Super50 Cup 2021- Jamaica Scorpions vs Guyana Jaguars – Match 7
The 7th match of the Super50 Cup 2021 will be played between Jamaica Scorpions and Guyana Jaguars at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, Antigua.
Current Form Guyana Jaguars
Guyana Jaguars have won both their first two fixtures and remain seated at the top position on points table.
During the last encounter against Leeward Islands, Guyana Jaguars won the toss and invited Leeward Islands to have a bat first. Kieran Powell and Ross Powell gave a tremendous start to Leeward Islands. They accumulated 152 runs for the first wicket partnership. Kieran Powell made 94 off 97 deliveries while Ross Powell scored 61 off 99 balls. Leeward Islands were looking very strong at this juncture but then fall of wickets began and in no time, Leeward Islands went from 152 for 0 to 203 for 5. None of the middle order batsmen took attack to the opposition and lost their wicket to loose deliveries, something that isn’t expected on this level of cricket. In the end, Leeward Islands finished with 244 for 9 in 50 overs. Gudakesh Motie was the top wicket taker for Guyana Jaguars and dismissed 4 batsmen.
Chasing 244, Chandrapaul Hemraj provided a good start by smacking 24 runs off 22 deliveries. However, his dismissal followed by the run out of Shimron Hetmyer put Guyana Jaguars in a tight spot. Ashmead Nedd bowled beautifully and removed Assad Fudadin in the 19th over to make matters worse for Guyana. However, a timely partnership between Leon Johnson and Chris Barnwell steadied the ship for Guyana. They collected 102 runs for the 4th wicket and here onwards, the target looked clearly in sight. Leon Johnson played a match winning knock of 102 runs and remained unbeaten to take his team home with 5 wickets in hand and 13 balls to spare.
Current Form Jamaica Scorpions:
Jamaica Scorpions have lost their first game of the tournament against a strong side of Trinidad and Tobago Red Force.
Batting first, Jamaica Scorpions lost two of their openers Aldane Thomas and Romaine Morrison within the 11th over. They were down and out at 39 for 2 when Brandon King and Andre McCarthy joined hands and collected 116 runs for the 3rd wicket. Brandon King made a contribution of 97 runs off 115 deliveries, who McCarthy scored 40. After the partnership was broken, Rovman Powell carried on the momentum gained in the innings and smacked 43 runs off 44 balls. Significant contribution from Paul Palmer towards the end of the innings meant that Jamaica reached 258 runs in their allotted 50 overs of play.
Chasing 258, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force lost their key batsman Lendl Simmons for a duck. He was removed by Sheldon Cottrell who bowled a beautiful in-swinging delivery to get the better off Simmons. Evin Lewis was in a different mood though. He carried on the kind of form he was in during the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament and scored 107 off 92 deliveries. Darren Bravo at number 4 played a sensible knock of a run a ball 59 and remained unbeaten to take Trinidad and Tobago home by 5 wickets with 9 overs to spare.
