St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v Guyana Amazon Warriors
Monday 5 August, 00:00
TV: Live on BT Sports
Patriots are sweating on the fitness of Evin Lewis. Josh da Silva could open again if he misses out.
Possible XI: Fletcher, Da Silva, Darren Bravo, Rutherford, Brevis, D Pretorius, Dwayne Bravo, D Jansen, Cottrell, Carmichael, A Dananjaya
There was a lot to dislike about Guyana's XI in defeat against Jamaica, chiefly the go-slow Shai Hope at No 3. A strike rate of 83 is inexcusable with the hitters in their line-up.
Possible XI: Stirling, Hemraj, Hope, Hetmyer, Shepherd, Klaasen, Smith, Paul, Motie, Shamsi, Beaton
The rain should have cleared to get a full match in. It is not unreasonable to expect it might have affected the surface. This could be an unders game with runs not flowing as expected before the wet stuff. There has been one score of more than 149 so far. Bet the par line here.
How to play
Guyana are 1.784/5 with Patriots 2.206/5. The former might be fair if they adjust their XI to include an extra pace option in Ronsford Beaton. Three spinners on a moisture-heavy surface might not be great idea. Patriots are looking a little lost without a road to get to work on. Bet the match odds here.
Da Silva is 4/1 for top Patriots bat in that potential opening berth. Romario Shepherd at No 5 has interest at 20/1 for Guyana. On a potentially slow wicket 30-odd might win it. The 5/4 that no fifty is score is of note. Bet the Sportsbook markets here.
