Trinbago Knight Riders v Guyana Amazon Warriors

TV: Live on BT Sports
Trinbago moved Nic Pooran up to replace Sunil Narine as opener against Royals. It worked insofar as Pooran notched a fifty. But Narine batting ahead of Andre Russell? No thanks. It was another deserved defeat.
Possible XI: Webster, Pooran, Munro, Seifert, Narine, Russell, Pollard, Rampaul, Dupavillon, Theekshana, Lewis
We're not happy with Shai Hope's continual go-slow. Guyana would be better off picking an extra pace option and moving up one of Odean Smith, Romario Shepherd or Keemo Paul as a punch-hitter.
Possible XI: Hope, Hemraj, Ingram, Klaasen, Hetmyer, Paul, Shepherd, Smith, Motie, Shamsi, Tahir
Nine of the last 10 CPL matches at Queen's park Oval have seen first-innings scores of under 150. Eight of those have been won by the chaser. This is an unders play with cheap lays at 10 and 150 on first-dig.

How to play
Trinbago are 1.664/6. That's a crazy price considering they were almost as short versus the Royals and were thrashed by eight wickets. We have to side with Guyana who may be finding form after beating Kings. They are 2.466/4. Bet the match odds here.
Keemo Paul batted at No 6 last time for Guyana so we have to bet him for top bat at 50/1 with Sportsbook. Pooran has been boosted to 10/3. Bet the Sportsbook markets here.
Barbados Royals v Jamaica Tallawahs
Thursday 15 September, 15:00
TV: Live on BT Sports
Royals made it six wins out of six with a success over Trinbago. Kyle Mayers once again starred with the bat in an easy chase. It was interesting that Quinton de Kock batted at No 4.
Possible XI: Cornwall, Mayers, Bosch, De Kock, Miller, Azam, Walsh, O Thomas, Mujeeb, Simmonds
Tallawahs have a game on Wednesday against the Patriots. But we are expecting them to retain faith with the XI which suffered their loss of the season to Royals last time.
Possible XI: King, K Lewis, Jangoo, Powell, Reifer, Allen, Imad, Green, Pretorius, James, Amir
It's an under plays but only if Royals bat first. Tallawahs are a much tighter bowling unit with an economy rate of 7.2 (versus 7.9) so we keep that on side. Remember the toss bias from above, too. We're looking for under 150. Bet the first-innings runs market here.
That mean bowling unit and a bowler-friendly pitch should mean that Tallawahs can get their starting price of around 2.407/5 down into favourite position bowling first. That should be a useful trade strategy to set you up for all green. Bet the match odds here.
