Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors CPl Match Prediction
- Last year’s runners-up once again, Guyana Amazon Warriors take on the unexpected hosts, Trinbago Knight Riders, in the first match of the 2020 Caribbean Premier League.
- Trinbago Knight Riders beat Guyana Amazon Warriors in the final in 2018, but the Amazon Warriors won both league matches last season.
- The two teams go into the Caribbean Premier League as joint-favourites and, if both teams live up to expectations, this could be a preview for the final.
Date-Aug 18, 2020
Time- 19:30:00, GMT +5:30
Venue-Brian Lara Stadium – Tarouba, Trinidad And Tobago
Winner -Trinbago Knight Riders
The two Tarouba matches last year saw the team batting first win. Both of these teams fielded first in their matches, and may well prefer batting first this time.
The early morning weather forecast in Tarouba is not ideal – scattered thunderstorms are forecast throughout with a 50 per cent chance of rain.
The Brian Lara Cricket Academy wicket is generally used for the finals, and last year’s finals continued the trend of well-balanced pitches between bat and ball.
