After Chris Gayle’s expeditious performance scoring a century against the Trinbago Knight Riders, he will be looking to carry on his impressive performances with a win over Guyana.
If Jamaica Tallawahs are to win this game, it would be the first time the Tallawahs would win 3 matches in a row since CPL 2014.
For the Guyana Amazon Warriors they are the only other unbeaten team this season in the CPL and they will be looking to extend that. One key player to keep an eye on for them is former Tallawahs player Chris Lynn. Lynn is a hard hitting Australian batsman who finds the gaps brilliant and one who always has an eye on rotating the strike.
For the Jamaica Tallawahs to win, they must bat first to make use of the pitch as it gets dry later in the evening.
