Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St Lucia Zouks CPL Semi-final Match Prediction

At the start of the season, few would have predicted that the St Lucia Zouks would be one of the teams going through to the second round. Yet, here we are with the underdogs facing last year’s favourites Guyana Amazon Warriors in the second semi final of this year’s altered playoffs. The Zouks have been terrific at times, and not so impressive at others, but one thing’s for sure: they’ve been exciting. Guyana on the other hand had a pretty average start, but picked up pace midway through to show the world what they’re capable of. The playoffs, however, have historically been Guyana’s kryptonite, with the team playing either 2nd or 3rd in every edition of the CPL. Before the match gets under way, let’s take a look at how the two teams are doing.

Guyana Amazon Warriors Preview & Form

With a slew of back-to-back wins, the team didn’t just qualify, but jumped right up to second place, taking the spot from the Zouks. Not only have Guyana won four matches on the trot, but they have done so in dominating fashion by dismissing their opponents under 110 on 3 of those occasions and chasing their targets down with several overs to spare. With both bowlers and batsmen finding solid form - including some dangerous international stalwarts, Ghana are definitely the favourites going into this. Additionally, their last match was way back on the 3rd, which means they got a full four days of rest as opposed to the Zouks’ 1 full day.

St Lucia Zouks Preview & Form

As the surprise package of the tournament so far, the Zouks have definitely won plenty of hearts on their way to the playoffs. What everyone wants to see is if they can win more than just that. With a morale-boosting comeback victory against Jamaica Tallawahs in their final match, the Zouks will have their confidence restored after two discouraging losses against the top 2 teams. With their bowlers more or less consistent, the onus will be on the batsmen to set up a good target or chase whatever’s on the board with skill, conviction, and restraint. Even then, they will have to reach deep into their bag of tricks to hold this Guyana lineup back.

GAW vs SLZ Prediction

Match Prediction

Unless you are Virat Kohli himself, you can’t be more frustrated than Guyana are at their domestic T20 league results. Second 5 times and third twice, they will stop at nothing to reach that summit this time. Expect hard hitters Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran to carry them with the bat, while Imran Tahir works with Chris Green to curtail the flow of runs.

The Zouks have already proven themselves this year, but would undoubtedly give anything to go further. Expect Najibullah Zadran and Roston Chase to take the aforementioned onus, while Mohammad Nabi and the trusty Scott Kuggeleijn strike with the ball.
