The 4th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba in Trinidad.
Guyana Team News
Chris Green led the Warriors in their first game with Shoaib Malik unavailable for this tournament. Otherwise, there were few selection surprises for the Warriors, who have retained the core of last season’s successful team.
Guyana Key Players
- Brandon King: In excellent form last season on his way to 496 runs, he was out for a three-ball duck last time out and will be keen to bounce straight back.
- Imran Tahir: Picked up where he left off in last season’s tournament, with some wicket-taking form. He took 2-40 to move to 367 career wickets in T20 cricket.
- Shimron Hetmyer: Fresh from West Indies’ tour of England, the rising batting star hammered 63* from 44 balls in the opening game of this tournament.
St Kitts & Nevis Team News
Joshua da Silva made his T20 debut batting at number three last time out, while new signing Chris Lynn slotted into to open the batting as expected. Despite the defeat, there could be few – if any – changes this time around, as it looks the strongest side on paper.
St Kitts & Nevis Key Players
- Chris Lynn: By his big-hitting standards, it was a slow start to his Patriots’ stint but the Australian opener is capable of fireworks up the order.
- Sohail Tanvir: The veteran paceman took 2-25 opening the bowling last time out and then hit 16* from ten balls with the bat, but his big-hitting came too late to impact the game.
- Sheldon Cottrell: Got the Patriots off to an outstanding start with two wickets in his first over last time out, on his way to figures of 2-16.
