Barbados Tridents vs Guyana Amazon Warriors CPL 22nd Match Prediction

Brian Lara Stadium (Tarouba)
It’s hard to write anything hopeful about Barbados after what they pulled in their last match. Something so pathetic, especially when they are attempting to defend their own title, can either be a cacophonous swan song or a jarring wake up call. Which one it was will become apparent when they face Guyana not once, but twice in three days. For the first encounter, Guyana will definitely be the happier of the two. Even with only 3 wins, they are in third place thanks to the bottom 4 teams churning up performances ranging from subpar to downright awful. Moreover, in their last match, they got their first victory after 3 successive losses, while the Tridents’ morale is absolutely miserable. After last season’s final, every CPL fan has been waiting for this matchup, but no one could have predicted the circumstances in which it is taking place. Before the two groups clash, let’s eye their respective arsenals.

Barbados Tridents Preview & Form

When they played the Zouks on Tuesday, Barbados did the seemingly impossible, and definitely inexplicable. Chasing a miserable 92, they slumped down to 87/7. With only 3 games in hand and 2 of those being against Guyana, this is essentially Barbados’ last chance at a journey to the playoffs. Their lineup has a lot of talent, and now is the time to make the best of that. Whatever their results might be in the playoffs, bowing out before the second stage while defending your crown is inarguably one of the worst things that a team can do - especially when they won that crown against a team that was, until that point last season, completely invincible.

Of all the people who were looking forward to these two teams playing each other this season, no one could have been more impatient than Ghana. Barbados essentially took from them what was almost unquestionably theirs - and that too, after 6 years of waiting and 4 heartbreaks. Guyana will be more pumped than ever - especially after stomping over the Patriots on their way to this match. Should they win the next match, Barbados will most likely be too broken to put up a fight for the one after, and Guyana might even stand a chance to jump up to the top two births should the Zouks falter. 

Match Prediction

Given Barbados’ situation, the players will literally be playing for the sake of their reputations. Expect Johnson Charles and Corey Anderson to bat it up, while Rashid Khan and Ashley Nurse get the wickets. 

Guyana are all set for their grudge match, and they aren’t going to go easy on a weakened Barbados. Expect Nicholas Pooran to reprise his amazing performance last game with help from Shimron Hetmyer, while Naveen-ul-Haq and Imran Tahir pick up wickets.
