Brian Lara Stadium – Venue Notes

  • Average First Innings Score in the CPL since 2018: 150
  • Bat First vs Bowl First since 2018: Win batting first – 13; Win chasing – 14
  • BAR-GUY Players in the top 10 leading run-scorers list since 2018: Shimron Hetmyer(4), Jason Holder(10)
  • BAR-GUY Players in the top 10 leading wicket-takers list since 2018: Imran Tahir(3), Keemo Paul(6), Mujeeb Ur Rahman(7)

As it is a day game under the heat, the pitch will likely favour the spinners and pacers with good slower-ball variations. This pitch has also generally been on the slower side and any above-par score should be defended as this pitch can also get trickier to bat on as the match progresses.

Barbados Royals – Fantasy Notes

  • Kyle Mayers struggled in the 1st innings in the last match with a painful inning of 1(17) and that struggle is only likely to worsen against two of the best wrist-spinners in the Guyana spin-attack. Keep him in your team but give him the armband only if he bats in the 2nd innings.
  • Rahkeem Cornwall is one of the most attacking batters in the CPL but he is also a hit-or-miss fantasy asset. What makes him an appealing differential option in this match is the possibility of him bowling more overs of his off-spin against the LHBs of Guyana.
  • If Corbin Bosch bats in the 1st innings, he could be worth leaving out of your teams if the pitch remains slow and dry. He is inexperienced
  • David Miller is very likely to get an opportunity to bat in this match against a strong bowling unit. He is also a good player of spin, which makes him an attractive option especially if Barbados bats first.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman remains the key bowler for the Royals against a Guyana team with 3 left-handers in their top 5. An excellent option when bowling first in particular, when the pitch is drier and that makes it trickier for the batters against quality spin early on in the innings.
  • It must be clear at this point that both McCoy and Holder automatically become top fantasy options when they bowl in the 1st innings.
  • Azam Khan has good records against both the spin bowling-types of Guyana. If you pick him, drop at least 2 of the top order batters.

Guyana Amazon Warriors – Fantasy Notes

  • Shimron Hetmyer struggles to get going against off-spin but it would not be wise to drop a quality batter like him for this reason alone. He has had good starts this season and one big innings is expected in one of the matches.
  • Heinrich Klaassen could be key in countering the off-spin threat of Mujeeb-Cornwall and also in guiding the team through the middle overs using his experience of batting in the Proteas middle order.
  • Junior Sinclair is likely to continue playing in this match to make use of his off-spin against a Royals top 6 with 3 left-handers, who are also their most important players – de Kock, Mayers and Miller.
  • Another part-time off-spin option who can bowl in this match is Paul Stirling as Sinclair is still very inexperienced at this stage.
  • The Wrist-spin South African duo of Shamsi and Tahir must be in your team on this kind of pitches. Both are good picks in both innings but if you had to make a choice between the two in the 1st innings – pick Shamsi. On the other hand, picking both of them in the 2nd innings is ideal in these conditions.
