SLK vs GUY Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report CPL 2023 Match 4 | SLK vs GAW Dream11 Prediction Today | St Lucia Pitch Report

Saint Lucia Kings (SLK) will take on Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) in the fourth game of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2023. The home side SLK have played two games, winning and losing one apiece. They won their previous encounter by 54 runs against Barbados Royals.

Faf du Plessis showed good signs after a run of low scores earlier, while Sean Williams and Johnson Charles also batted well. Matthew Forde snared three wickets, and every other bowler dismissed a batter each.

Guyana Amazon Warriors will be playing their first match of the season. They ended up in the second position in the points table in CPL 2022. They lost in Qualifier 2 and will hope to improve further in a bid to clinch the title for the first time after a number of near misses.

SLK vs GUY Dream11 Prediction – Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Saint Lucia Kings:

  • Johnson Charles has rode his luck at times, but did look in better nick in the second game. He has scores of 24 & 30 in the two games so far. His record at this venue has also been solid.
  • Faf du Plessis seemed to be returning in form, as he made 46 runs in the last game. He is among the best batters in the team and will have the responsibility of providing a brisk start.
  • Sean Williams made 47 runs in the previous game. He is a good batter and can again do damage with the willow. Williams can also chip in with the ball if required.
  • Sikandar Raza is a proper all-rounder who contributes with both bat and ball. His recent form has also been decent. In the previous rubber, Raza made 23 and also picked up a wicket.
  • Roston Chase has been among the consistent performers in the league. In the two games this season, Chase has scored 67 runs at a strike rate of 163.41 and also picked up four wickets with the ball.
  • Alzarri Joseph has three wickets in two games this season. He is a skilled pacer who can trouble the batters with his pace and accuracy.

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

  • Shai Hope is a quality batter who can bat long and fetch match-winning points in the fantasy team. In the recently-concluded T20I series against India, Hope made 67 runs in two innings.
  • Shimron Hetmyer played a good knock of 61 in his last T20 game against India. The southpaw has been a regular player in the league and will look to start the campaign on a high note.
  • Romario Shepherd was the highest wicket-taker in the T20I series against India. In the five games, Shepherd scalped nine wickets at an excellent strike rate of 11.33. Shepherd is also a capable batter who can hit the ball long with the willow.
  • Odean Smith is a hard-hitting all-rounder who can provide fantasy points in all the departments. Odean can hit the deck hard and trouble the batters with his pace. With the willow, Smith is a more than handy batter.
  • Gudakesh Motie is a skilful spinner. In the ODI series against India, Motie was the highest wicket-taker for the West Indies, with six wickets at an average of 16.67. Another good outing can not be ruled out.
