Match 16, Guyana Amazon Warriors v Trinbago Knight Riders – Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XIs, Weather and Pitch

Fantasy tips for the 16th Match of CPL 2020

Trinbago Knight Riders will take on Guyana Amazon Warriors

Guyana Amazon Warriors will be playing their sixth game whereas the Trinbago Knight Riders will be playing their fifth game when these two teams take on each other on 28th August.

Trinbago Knight Riders are currently unstoppable as they have won four out of their four games. They won their last game without their key player – Sunil Narine.

On the other hand, Amazon Warriors has won only two out of their first five games. They need to pick up a few wins if they want to stay in the competition for the top four. Their batting isn’t clicking together which is a huge concern for them.

They will be up against a great bowling line-up and it wouldn’t be easy for the likes of Hetmyer and Pooran to get back in form against the Knight Riders bowlers.

Team News

Guyana Amazon Warriors

The likes of Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran need to step up and play some match-winning knocks for their team. Hetmyer started well but now has tapered off in the last 2-3 games.

Their bowlers are doing a decent job as Imran Tahir is leading from the front. Even though Chris Green hasn’t picked up many wickets he has been economical.

The likes of Ross Taylor and Sherfane Rutherford need to score more with the bat. Imran Tahir and Shimron Hetmyer could be the players to watch out for.

Trinbago Knight Riders

Trinbago Knight Riders have won four out of their four games and there don’t seem to be any worries for this team. Dwayne Bravo who was out of form in the first couple of games, came back in form as he picked up two important wickets in their last game.

Fawad Ahmed and Ali Khan have been performing well with the ball. The only concern for them will be Sunil Narine’s fitness. But the good thing for them is that they won their last game even in his absence.

Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard could be the two players to watch out for.

Shimron Hetmyer, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Darren Bravo, Tim Siefert, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Keemo Paul, Imran Tahir, Ali Khan, Fawad Ahmed
