JAM vs GUY: Shoaib Malik-led Guyana Amazon Warriors have been unstoppable in this season of the Caribbean Premier League. They have had a 100% win record in this edition, by winning all 4 matches played. Sitting handsomely on the top of the table, they will face the under-confident Jamaica Tallawahs in the 15th match of the CPL 2019. The match is set to happen is Jamaica’s fortress, the Sabina Park stadium.
The Guyana Amazon Warriors have everything that they’d be seeking for. The team is in a dream run at the moment and they look incredibly strong. While there have been some great batting performances on display from their end, it is their bowling which had actually remained sublime. While everything seems to be going their way, they should ensure that they keep replicating such performances, by leaving no margin for error. Coming after a handsome win against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by seven wickets, the team will be hoping to get add another victory to their name.
JAMAICA AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TABLE
While the Warriors are on an absolute rampage, it is the Tallawahs who look completely out-of-order. While below-par performances were haunting the team, it has also been marred with a lot of injuries. However, after losing the initial 4 matches in a row, they finally managed to register a victory to their name. They won their maiden game of this edition against the Barbados Tridents, back at their home. While it is going to be a daunting task for the Jamaican team, they will seek some motivation from their comeback game.
With that being said, the Warriors have a clear advantage against the Tallawahs, as even the head-to-head stats give a similar picture. The Warriors lead the Tallawahs 9-7 in overall matches played, after also managing to take a lead in the away games, with 3 wins out of 5 games.

Sabina Park has been the home for high-scoring games. It has been a batting paradise and batsmen love playing on this ground. However, the pitch did give a surprise in the previous match, which saw a low-scoring game. However, since it was a day-match, the pitch aided the spinners. But under the floodlights, the chances of that happening are not high. Also, with the dew-factor, the spinners will not get assistance like how they got the previous time.
The weather looks clear and there is no threat of rain. The temperature is expected to be around 27-degrees Celsius, with humidity to be around 80s.
After Andre Russel was ruled out of the team from the previous match, after injuring himself, Jermaine Blackwood has come-in to replace him. Jade Dernbach joined the playing XI in the previous, match after Kennar Lewis missed the previous match, citing personal reasons. Well, Jade made the most of the opportunity, as he was brilliant with his bowling with figures like 1/16 in 3 overs. Zahir Khan was exceptional after taking 3 crucial wickets. There were decent contributions from Lewis, Worker as well, who bowled well and contributed for their victory. Senior batsman, Dwayne Smith replaced Rovman Powell, who was ruled out of the tournament. Smith is yet to open his account in the tournament, as he got out in the first ball he played in his previous match.
The onus is going to be on the Universe Boss Chris Gayle and his partner Glenn Phillips to give a powerful start to the team. The duo are perhaps the only batsmen in the playing XI, who can fire, while the middle-order lacks the power. Chadwick Walton will be very crucial to the team, and he should handle the pressure rightly.

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS
The team has everything right going their way. With batsmen rising upto the occasion when needed to the bowlers who have consistently shown a brilliant performance all-through. Even with the departure of Shadab Khan, it hasn’t really impacted the team. With the likes of Imran Tahrir and Qais Ahmed, the spin-attack looks formidable for them. And by no means can we leave out Chris Green, who took 5-wickets with an exceptional economy rate of 7.46.
Well, the list of good performances just keeps coming for the Guyana Warriors. Romario Shepherd has been stand-out with an amazing economy of 5.60, after taking 7 wickets to his name. He delivers at crucial times for the team, both with the new ball and in the final overs, which makes it even more incredible. The batting is handled by Chandrapaul Hemraj, who has most-often given them the start they need. He has scored 138 runs with an average of 34.50. They possess a great threat in batting with the likes of Hetmyer, Pooran and Rutherford in the line-up, and with captain Shoaib Malik, adding the further depth in batting.
