GUY vs SKN Dream11 Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots – 20 August 2020 (Trinidad)
St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots will take on Guyana Amazon Warriors in the league Match of CPL 2020 aka Caribbean Premier League which will be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium in the Trinidad. The T20 cricket is finally back on the T20 land of the Caribbean after the COVID-19 heartbreak.
Guyana Amazon Warriors lost their first game to the Knight Rider and would like to get a victory here in this game. They have some really good players in their ranks and they can certainly be a dominating team on their day. Shimron Hetmyer batted well in the last game and the young gun would like to continue his form.
St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots, on the other hand, have the most explosive batting line-up of CPL but still, they couldn’t manage to chase a fairly small total in their first game. The fiery batting line-up needs to adjust to the slow conditions here in this game. The bowling of this side is absolutely top-notch.
Pitch Report – This pitch has not been great for batting and staying low. We can expect a low-scoring encounter.

GUY vs SKN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Nicholas Pooran (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Pooran is a genuine T20 match-winner and played a brilliant cameo in the last game. He is certainly a better T20 player than Ramdin and will be picked for this game.
GUY vs SKN Dream11 Batsmen
Shimron Hetmyer (Price 9.5) and Ross Taylor (Price 9.5) will be our batsmen from the Warriors. Hetmyer underperformed in the CPL 2019 but started the CPL 2020 on a very good note by scoring a half-century in the first game. He would like to continue his form whereas Taylor will be a perfect player on this slow kind of pitch, he played an explosive knock in the last game as well. Both of them will be vital for our team.
Even Lewis (Price 10) and Ben Dunk (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Patriots. Ben Dunk was in a brilliant form in the PSL 2020 and he started the CPL on a very good note too. He would like to continue his form whereas Lewis also knows the surfaces of the Caribbean well and he is a genuine T20 match-winner. Both of them will be our picks.
[Chris Lynn has been dropped from the side because he can struggle on these wickets and credits are to be managed too]
GUY vs SKN Dream11 All-Rounders
Chris Green (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounder from the Warriors. Green flopped in the first game but he is the captain of the warriors and a genuine match-winner. He will also be picked.
Sohail Tanvir (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Patriots, he is a very big asset to the side. Tanvir is an experienced T20 campaigner and a genuine wicket-taker. He picked a couple of wickets in the last game as well and showed his batting powers too.
GUY vs SKN Dream11 Bowlers
Imran Tahir (Price 9.5) and Naveen ul Haq (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Warriors side. Tahir was the highest wicket-taker of the Guyana side in CPL 2019 and picked a couple of wickets in the first game of CPL 2020 as well whereas Naveen is an Afghan prodigy and he also bowled superbly in the first game. Both of them would be picked.
Alzarri Joseph (Price 8.5) and Sheldon Cottrell (Price 9) will be our bowlers from the Patriots side. Cottrell picked 12 wickets in 8 games last season whereas Joseph picked 9 wickets in 9 games. Both of them started the CPL 2020 on a very good note too.
