Guyana Amazon Warriors (GUY) pit their wits against Jamaica Tallawahs (JAM) in match 29 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. The five-time runners-up are on the brink of a semi-final spot after the thumping win over Jamaica Tallawahs in their last game. Nicholas Pooran hit an unbeaten 75, while Odean Smith and Gudakesh Motie shone with the ball. Two points in their final league fixture will seal a ninth successive top-four finish in CPL.
