The 3rd season of the Caribbean Premier League has reached the end of 10 matches and has given us some great matches already. The number of start participating in the tournament also adds a lot of glamour to it. This is the main reason why the Caribbean Premier League has gathered a lot of following in the last few years.
The Guyana Amazon Warriors and the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots franchises will face each other in the 11th game of the 3rd edition of the Caribbean Premier League. We here have bought you a preview of the match along with the predictions and expected lineups of both teams.
The 11th game between the Amazon Warriors and the Nevis Patriots will be played on the 3rd of July at the Basseterre. It will start at 4:00 pm local time and will be the first of the double headers at Basseterre.
The pitch here has already taken some games in the competition and will start to get slower as the tournament progresses. This means that we can expect a low scoring affair when the two teams meet on Friday.
The Amazon Guyana Warriors had a very close outing against the St Lucia Zouks in their last game. They lost by a mere 2 runs (D/L) after the game was shortened due to rain. But they will take confidence from their performance and will believe that they can eventually end up on the other side of the line more often.
They are at the bottom of the table without a victory and will have to start winning matches if they are to have any chance to get to the top end of the table.
The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are in the middle of the table with just one victory out of 3. Their one run victory against the champions was followed by a poor outing against the Tallawahs. They will have to improve on their last performance and will have to be wary of the fact that the team at the bottom of the table has nothing to lose.
