Guyana Amazon Warriors go up against Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League 2022 (CPL) on Saturday, September 3, 2022, at Warner Park in Basseterre from 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
The Warriors had a disappointing campaign in the recently concluded The 6ixty (men’s), losing two of the three matches in the group stage. However, in the CPL last season, the Warriors finished second in the group stage with 12 points in 10 matches and made it to the semi-final where they were defeated by St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Guyana Amazon Warriors will be led by Shimron Hetmyer in this edition of the tournament after Nicholas Pooran’s move to Trinbago Knight Riders.
The Tallawahs were brilliant in the CPL 2022 season opener against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, winning by 47 runs. Brandon King’s 57-ball 89 and Rovman Powell’s cameo set up a sizeable score for the Tallawahs before an excellent bowling performance stifled the Patriots. Jamaica Tallawahs had a poor campaign in 2021 as they finished fifth on the points table with only four wins in 10 matches.
