The Caribbean Premier League CPL is gradually gearing up for the semifinals as teams are looking to consolidate their positions with consecutive wins. It is an exciting matchup tomorrow with the second-placed St Lucia Zouks crossing swords against the third-placed Guyana Amazon Warriors. It will be a very crucial match for both the sides in the context of the tournament as the stakes are very high.
St Lucia Zouks
The Zouks are coming to this game with a win against the Tridents. However, after a shambolic batting performance where they could only post a total of 92 the bowlers did a fantastic job to bail them out with a win. If the Zouks want to continue their good form they have to put up a lot better batting-performance. Players like Andre Fletcher, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran have to step up with the willow.
If they manage to post a decent total they can fancy themselves against any team in the league with their excellent bowling contingent.

Guyana Amazon Warriors
The Warriors are high on confidence as well as they are also coming to this game with a victory as they chased down a tricky total of 150 runs. It was Nicholas Pooran who scored a blazing century to bring the three points home for the Warriors.
Despite the victory, the Warriors have a lot to improve, captain Chirs Green and his men are still depending on individual performances to bail them out on a certain day. The team game is missing and experienced players like Green, Imran Tahir and Ross Taylor will have to step up to the occasion from hereon.
Head to head
Both the sides have met each other several times in the CPLT20 and the Warriors being multiple champions of this tournament have dominated this fixture. A total of 14 matches have been played between these two sides and the Warriors reign supreme with 9 wins. However, the interesting factor is that both the sides faced each other this season and the Zouks emerged winners in the tussle.
GAW – 1.75
St Lucia – 1.95
