CPL 2021 Match 26: JAM vs GUY Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible Playing 11 Pitch Report | JAM vs GUY Dream11 Prediction Today | Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs Key Players | St Kitts Pitch Report

Win and sit in the top four ahead of the final day of the group stage. Lose and move into fifth spot and risk missing out on the semi finals.

A lot rests on this crucial match, the first in two days between Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs. Like other teams in CPL 2021, both have been inconsistent, hence why they sit in such a position instead of further up the table.

In fact, Guyana have not won two consecutive matches this season. They are coming off a strong win against St Lucia earlier in the week, and will be aiming to put together a good display here to replace their opponents in the top four. The Tallawahs, after three straight losses, have won their last two, with their latest outing being a very fruitful one also against St Lucia.

Who will hold their nerve in such a crucial match?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

  • Shimron Hetmyer has a century against Jamaica, which shows he is capable of producing a big innings (197 runs overall, avg. 32.83, SR 158.87).
  • Hetmyer has had an under-par season (7 inns, 150 runs, avg. 22.14, SR 107.14). The time is now for the talented left-hander to deliver the goods.
  • Shoaib Malik loves playing against Jamaica. The experienced batsman has struggled badly in CPL 2021 (7 inns, 38 runs, avg. 6.14), but fans can hope this is his day as he scored 190 runs in three innings for Guyana against Jamaica at an average of 190 and strike rate of 165.22.
  • Brandon King found some form in his last game with a 57-ball 77 vs St Lucia. He does have a half-century vs Jamaica (four innings), so Guyana will be hoping he can produce another here today.
  • Gudakesh Motie has been impressive with his terrific energy at the bowling crease. He is coming off a player of the match performance, where he took 2/12 in four overs against St Lucia.
  • Imran Tahir has taken 11 wickets in six matches against Jamaica. Also, Tahir has taken the second-most wickets for Guyana this season, with 11 in eight matches (avg. 18.63, econ. 6.40).
  • Romario Shepherd has taken the most wickets for Guyana in CPL 2021 (14 wickets in just six matches). His last game was his only wicketless outing so far (0/38), so will be looking to bounce back here. He is yet to bowl against Jamaica in CPL.

Jamaica Tallawahs:

  • Andre Russell is in some good touch, coming off a 31 (15) against St Lucia that included four sixes. Dre Russ has a fine record against Guyana, with 322 runs in 13 innings at an average/strike rate of 35.78/163.45. Will he go big today?
  • Kennar Lewis produced a player of the match display last match against St Lucia. The opener smashed 56 off 24 balls and initiated dismissals with the gloves. Key player.
  • Carlos Brathwaite is back at the bowling crease, and with impact, too. The all-rounder took 2/13 in his last game, and he will be key with his variations. He has 12 wickets in 14 games vs the Warriors, and will be looking to improve on his batting average of just 12.33 (111 runs).
  • Migael Pretorius has the second-most wickets of any bowler in CPL 2021 (15 in eight games).

Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 20, Guyana 12, Jamaica 8.
  • This will be the first meeting between the sides in CPL 2021.
  • Both teams won a game against each other last season.

Warner Park Basseterre St Kitts Pitch Report and Weather

This will be the second match on this ground today, so there may be some turn on offer for the spinners. Variations will be key as has been the case all tournament, and teams batting first have won five of the past six games in CPL 2021.

The forecast is for warm and clear conditions.
