Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Kings team news

Saim Ayub's 85 from 53 and a man of the match display against Jamaica answered whether Rahmanullah Gurbaz is coming back into the Guyana XI any time soon. Matthew Nandu was tried as his opening partner instead of Chandrapaul Hemraj. Ayub has won the last three man of the match awards.

Possible XI: Ayub, Nandu, Hope, Azam, Hetmyer, Paul, Shepherd, Smith, Pretorius, Motie, Tahir

Kings have lost their last two on the more sluggish surfaces on Tarouba. They juggled their batting order in an effort to counteract that promoting Roston Chase and Sikandar Raza without success against Trinbago last time.

Possible XI: Munro, Charles, Chase, Raza, Williams, Descarte, Primus, Joseph, Forde, Pierre, Hatzoglou

Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Kings pitch report

The unbeaten Guyana busted two burgeoning trends at Providence in the first match. They prevented Jamiaca from going over 170 (five from the previous ten) and the toss bias (seven from ten) mean nothing. Eleven overs of spin were bowled by Guyana and they were mean ones, too. This could be an unders play on the par line if it's pitched mid 160s.

Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Kings match odds

We might keep faith with that toss bias and hope that St Lucia have learnt from their efforts in Tarouba. The 2.3811/8 about Kings could look chunky if they were to bat first.

Of course we respect Guyana's run of six straight wins but in this format it would hardly be a surprise if they were not due an off day.

Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Kings player bets

Considering Chase batted at No 3 last time the 5/16.00 with Sportsbook that he top scores for Kings is chunky. Raza is priced at 9/25.50, a tougher ask if you've been betting him at 10s previously. Ayub gets a quote of 13/53.60 for a fourth-straight top-bat for GAW. He is 8/19.00 for another match gong.

Back Roston Chase top GAW bat @ 5/16.00
