Guyana Amazon Warriors Team News & Playing 11

Guyana Team News

Guyana Amazon Warriors had Chandrapaul Hemraj back up the order last time out, but Kevin Sinclair’s impressive bowling means he has forced his way into this team and move into the lower order with the bat.

Guyana Key Players

  • Imran Tahir: Took 3-22 and 1-10 in the two games against the Zouks and claimed 3-12 last time out, on his way to 15 league-phase wickets
  • Naveen-ul-Haq: Hit an excellent patch of form with the ball, after taking 4-14, 2-24 and 0-15 in his last three matches. The middle of those was against the Zouks.
  • Shimron Hetmyer: After his third half-century of the tournament, against the Zouks, he hit 32* last time out and now has 270 runs in this season’s tournament.

Guyana Team Form

Guyana Amazon Warriors finished the season in excellent form, with four straight wins. That includes two dominant victories against Barbados Tridents. Last time out, Imran Tahir took 3-12 to post the pick of some excellent bowling figures when they restricted the Tridents to 89/9. Shimron Hetmyer then led them to a six-wicket win.

St Lucia Zouks Team News & Playing 11

St Lucia Zouks Team News

Rahkeem Cornwall and Mark Deyal opened the batting together last time out and could be at the top of the order again this time. Roston Chase was back up the order and could stay there for this game too. Scott Kuggeleijn will return after being rested.

St Lucia Zouks Key Players

  • Roston Chase: Scored a half-century when these teams first met this season and has generally made his mark with bat or ball so far.
  • Mohammad Nabi: Unusually made little impact last time out but his all-round form has generally been good.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn: Rested last time out but he has been in excellent wicket-taking form and he will return as a key opening bowler this time too.

St Lucia Zouks Team Form

St Lucia Zouks got back to winning ways with an excellent comeback with the ball last time out. They posted 145/6 from their 20 overs, which looked below par when Jamaica stormed to 84 without loss in the 12th over. The Zouks hit back though, with Zahir Khan and Javelle Glen each taking three wickets to choke the chase. St Lucia won by 11 runs.

Final Verdict

Guyana Amazon Warriors to beat St Lucia Zouks at 1.61 with 1xbet, Betway and Bet365.

GAW vs STZ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Andre Fletcher is nine credits but has slipped to number three in the Zouks’ batting order and perhaps lacks the big stand-out score in this innings. Nicholas Pooran is ten credits and has an unbeaten century to his name this season.

  • Batsmen

    Shimron Hetmyer is 9.5 credits and Brandon King can be backed at 8.5 credits. Hetmyer is in excellent form while it is so hard to write King off at that price after what he produced last season. Javelle Glen was key with the ball for Guyana last time out and is top value at eight credits.

  • All-rounders

    Glen’s value means Mohammad Nabi and Roston Chase can both be picked up despite their prices. That can be further balanced given new Guyana star Kevin Sinclair is just eight credits.

  • Bowlers

    Scott Kuggeleijn and Imran Tahir both cost 9.5 credits but, if you have saved credits previously, you can afford both. Romario Shepherd is just eight credits and was man of the match in Guyana’s last match, while Naveen-ul-Haq has hit some good form of late too. 

  • Captain/Vice-captain 

    Consistency is so key for Dream 11 and Scott Kuggeleijn and Imran Tahir have both been consistent wicket takers. Both are key with the ball, both are in good form and Tahir followed by Kuggeleijn could be good captain/vice-captain picks.

GAW vs STZ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Javelle Glen

  • All Rounder:Mohammad Nabi, Roston Chase, Kevin Sinclair

  • Wicket Keeper:Nicholas Pooran

  • Bowler:Scott Kuggeleijn (vc), Imran Tahir (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq
