Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) vs Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) in CPL

After the long delay due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Caribbean Premier League 2020 will finally start on August 18, 2020. Starting the proceedings are the franchises representing the island nations of Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana. The Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors tie will put two heavyweights of the tournament head to head. While TKR has won the tournament thrice, GAW is yet to win their maiden title, even after playing 5 finals. One could not have asked for a better start to the eighth edition of the cricket carnival in West Indies.

In a way, it is a match between multiple-time champions and probably the unluckiest team in the league. Even though it might seem that TKR is the better side in crossing the final hurdles that win you match, GAW proved otherwise by defeating the former on both occasions during last season. Out of the 19 times, both teams have faced each other, TKR has taken home the accolades 10 times while GAW has won 9 times. Last season, Trinbago Knight Riders lost in the semi-finals and Guyana Amazon Warriors finished as the runners-up, which means both teams were the in-form teams in CPL 2019. In fact, GAW remained unbeaten during the group stage of last season, making it their best season. The franchise would be hoping to go all the way this time, while TKR would be chasing their fourth title.

While the TKR side has opted for experience, GAW has backed young talent this time around, making it a spicy contest where experience meets exuberance. Players like Keiron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, and Colin Munro from TKR will face young players like Sherfane Rutherford, Shimron Hetmeyer, Keemo Paul and others from the GAW squad. The young side has two senior statesmen in the shape of Ross Taylor and Imran Tahir as well. Overall, it will be a match that will force players to bring out their best to win the match.
