SLZ vs GUY Dream 11 Team CPL 2020 – St Lucia Zouks vs Guyana Amazon Warriors

Updated on: Sep 2, 2020 3:22 pm IST

  • St Lucia Zouks have performed exceptionally well this season defying all the odds and are just a win away from sealing the semi-final spot. In their last match against Barbados Tridents, they defended the lowest total in CPL history with an exceptional bowling display reducing them to 89/7 from 20 overs and winning by a mere 3 runs. They have Kuggeleijn, Nabi and Kesrick Williams among the top 10 in the wicket-taking charts. With the evening games assisting spinners in Tarouba expect another bowling masterclass from the Zouks.

    Guyana Amazon Warriors seem to be peaking at the right time registering consecutive wins against the Patriots and the Tridents. They won their last game with the help of a 4W-haul from Naveen-ul-Haq and C Green equalling the record for the most economical spell by an Australian bowler in T20’s reducing Tridents to a score of 92. B King returning to form with a fifty will be a good sign for the Warriors. With 8 points from 8 matches they are getting closer to the semis spot.

    The last time these two teams faced each other, Zouks won by 10 runs with Chase and Pooran scoring 60s for their respective franchises. Regarding the team selection, Warriors will replace K Magram with the left-arm spinner A Nedd to trouble the right-handers in the Zouks line-up and Zouks will bring in M Deyal, the left-handed batsman to add variety to their batting and C Holder might replace Zakir Khan to attack the Warriors with his raw pace.

    Pitch report

    The first two matches in the final leg at Tarouba witnessed contrasting fortunes in terms of run-making with a high-scoring game in the first match and a below 100 score in the 2nd game. Expect the par score to be around 140 with some assistance to the spinners. The weather is clear with no chances of rain.

    SLZ vs GUY Dream11 Prediction

    Possible SLZ Playing 11 – R Cornwall, A Fletcher(WK), M Deyal, R Chase, N Zadran, M Nabi, D Sammy(C), J Glenn, S Kuggeleijn, K Williams, C Holder

    M Nabi – Nabi has provided all-round brilliance for Zouks this season with 122 runs and 10 wickets from seven matches.

    R Chase – He’s been performing at par with Nabi scoring 170 runs with two fifties and contributing with 6 wickets from 7 matches. The shift to Tarouba would certainly help him add to his already impressive batting numbers.

    S Kuggeleijn – The leading wicket-taker for Zouks this season with 11 wickets from 7 matches and he is one of those bowlers who will get an advantage with the change of venue.

    N Zadran – Zadran has been accumulating some important runs for Zouks this season. The match-ups are in his favour with Tahir and Nedd bowling at the middle phase providing him an opportunity to end up with a big score this match.

    Possible GUY Playing 11 – B King, K Sinclair, S Hetmyer, N Pooran(WK), R Taylor, K Paul, C Green(C), R Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, I Tahir, A Nedd

    R Taylor – Taylor’s batting will be crucial against the off-spin army of Zouks. 138 runs from 8 matches doesn’t inspire much confidence but his accumulating skills will come handy for Warriors in this match.

    N Pooran – Being the 2nd highest run-scorer despite not performing up to his standards tell us what a talent he is. He scored 68 against Zouks in their previous encounter and we can hope for a repeat this match.

    A Nedd – Nedd has been economical with the ball so far going at 4.86 but has only 3 wickets to show for from 4 matches. With a right-hand batting dominant Zouks side, expect him to bag some wickets this match.

    I Tahir – Despite going wicketless in the last two matches, Tahir remains the highest wicket-taker for Warriors this season with 11 wickets from 8 matches.

    GUY vs BAR Dream11 Team Captain, Differential Picks

    Loading the team with a mixture of batsman and spinners should work fine. Picking both Pooran and Hetmyer might be a risk considering the off-spin and short ball match-ups with the Zouks bowlers. Give preference to players who can provide value with both bat and ball.

    Captaincy Picks – Considering Pooran’s recent form he’s a top pick as a captain. Chase and Nabi are good options too considering their all-round value. I Tahir is an option too with him not picking wickets in his last two games.

    Differential Picks

    R Cornwall – An attacking approach with the bat in the PowerPlay along with providing additional value with the ball makes him an exciting player if he fires.

    C Holder – He has been impressive so far with raw pace and is expected to play against Warriors. At his best he can end up with a load of wickets.
