CPL 2021: JAM vs GUY Preview

Jamaica Tallawahs (JAM) and Guyana Amazon Warriors (GUY) face off in match 26 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. Convincing wins over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Saint Lucia Kings have boosted Jamaica Tallawahs’ semi-final hopes. The two-time winners have four wins from eight matches, and two points could seal a top-four finish.

A 17-run win over Saint Lucia Kings in their last game helped Guyana Amazon Warriors pick up their fourth win in the tournament. They have eight points from as many games but are fifth in the points table owing to a negative net run rate. Two points against Jamaica Tallawahs would give them the advantage in the playoffs race.
