St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Guyana Amazon Warriors Match Preview
The second semi-final of the CPL 2021 will have ST. Kitts and Nevis Patriots take on Guyana Amazon Warriors on Tuesday. St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots wouldn’t be too happy with their result at the end of league stage matches, given how well they started their campaign. They remained unbeaten in the first five games but then went on to lose four out of their next five matches. They finished the league stage at number three in the standings with 6 wins in 10 games. St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots played their last game against Trinbago Knight Riders and lost that by 4 wickets.
St. Kitts couldn’t find someone who could anchor the innings for them as they were restricted to 147 in the first innings. Joshua Da Silva scored a vital half-century but there wasn’t much contribution from other batsmen. Chris Gayle (5 off 4) continued his poor run of form, while J Carter (16 off 16) and Sherfane Rutherford (25 off 28) too had little to contribute. Dwayne Bravo’s 13-ball 25-run cameo later in the innings helped the side reach a reasonable total in the end.
The bowlers, however, made a strong start in the second innings. They sent back both Simmons and Munro into the hunt early as Trinbago Knight Riders managed less than 6 an over in the first 10 overs and also lost three wickets. However, Pollard’s blistering 51-run knock in 22 balls in the second half of the innings took the game away from St. Kitts. Trinbago Knight Riders chased down the total in 19 overs. St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots would want to forget the last game and make a strong performance in a must-win game on Tuesday.
On the other hand, Guyana Amazon Warriors are coming into the contest on the back of three consecutive wins. They are in scintillating form, of late. Every time they have been in trouble, someone has stood to the occasion and helped the team cross the line. In the last game against Jamaica Tallawahs, it was Romario Shepherd. After the team had lost 7 wickets for just 75 runs, Shepherd went all guns blazing and played a sensational 72-run knock off 31 deliveries, including 7 fours and 6 sixes. His knock propelled the total to 142 in 20 overs.
Shepherd was equally brilliant with the ball as he picked three wickets. Odean Smith too picked three wickets, while Imran Tahir picked two. Jamaica Tallawahs, as a result, were bundled out for just 128 runs.
