Cricket Match Information:
Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) vs Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) will be the last group game of cricket this season for both teams in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2019. GAW have so far played nine cricket games and won all of them, whereas TKR have played nine games as well and won just four games.
Both these cricket teams have qualified for the playoffs, but the journey has been completely different. Both teams began quite similarly. In fact, after first four games, both teams were unbeaten but while GAW continued the same pattern, TKR have failed to add a single win since then. Our expert prediction is of another struggling game of cricket for TKR, whereas GAW should make history by winning ten group games.

Guyana Amazon Warriors
GAW stretched their unbeaten streak to nine wins now after their latest win over Jamaica Tallawahs. GAW now has a chance to make it ten wins out of ten if they win the last group game against TKR.
Skipper Shoaib Malik emerged as their saviour on this occasion as they were 8 for 4 at one stage. His performance, along with Sherfane Rutherford’s, helped GAW post 156 runs on the board. During the defence, Imran Tahir and Chris Green once again wreaked havoc and did not allow Tallawahs any freedom.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that won them the ninth game.
Here is our prediction of Guyana Amazon Warriors’ playing XI:
- Shoaib Malik
- Qais Ahmad
- Chris Green
- Shimron Hetmyer
- Keemo Paul
- C Hemraj
- Nicholas Pooran
- Sherfane Rutherford
- Imran Tahir
- Brandon King
- Romario Shephard
Trinbago Knight Riders
TKR are going to be led by Keiron Pollard once again in this cricket game. Out of nowhere, his team has gone from an unbeaten run to a downward slide. They had won their first four games without any concern but since then, they have not managed to add anything on the win column. Our prediction guru thinks that TKR might struggle in this cricket game as well.
TKR have been plagued by injuries this season as well. Their prime spinner, Sunil Narine, has not played all the games. Their regular skipper, Dwayne Bravo, was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury as well. But more importantly, they have completely lost the momentum by losing one game after another. Their in-form batsmen seem to have lost their form and their all-rounders are not being impactful enough.
Our prediction guru is going with the same playing eleven for this game of cricket despite the loss in the previous cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Trinbago Knight Riders’ playing XI:
- Lendl Simmons
- M Deyal
- Keiron Pollard
- Jimmy Neesham
- Colin Munro
- JPR Searles
- Dinesh Ramdin
- A Philip
- Khary Pierre
- Ali Khan
- Darren Bravo
Expert Prediction: GAW vs TKR
These two sides have been the two most successful sides in the history of CPL. While TKR have won the tournament on three occasions, GAW have been the runners-up on three occasions. However, it has been all GAW this season. Even in the last encounter between the two sides, GAW beat TKR easily by 19 runs and there was a gulf of class between the sides.
Our expert prediction is of another fine win for GAW. They are currently oozing with confidence, whereas their opponents are completely bereft of it right now. It is going to take something special from TKR to get out of this rut because it is not just about this game, but also about the impending playoffs. From being certain of a top-two finish, TKR are in danger of finishing on the fourth position, which will mean they will not get another chance if they lose the eliminator.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will look to bowl first. T20 format is a chase-friendly format and with teams preferring to know what they need to chase, bowling first is a no-brainer.
