CPL 2021: GUY vs JAM Preview

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.

Jamaica Tallawahs’ semi-final hopes suffered a setback after the 46-run defeat at the hands of Guyana Amazon Warriors. They need to pick up two points in the penultimate league game to qualify for the knockout stage. A win will help Jamaica Tallawahs finish level on points with third-placed Guyana Amazon Warriors, but the two-time winners have a better net run rate than the Guyana-based side.
