Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors get the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) underway at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba on Tuesday. Guyana Amazon Warriors dominated the competition last year but lost in the final. Will they go one step further in 2020?

Trinbago Knight Riders Form


The Trinbago Knight Riders sneaked their way into the knockout round of the 2019 Caribbean Premier League, winning just 4 matches in the league phase.

They finished the competition in 3rd place after losing to the Barbados Tridents in the semi-final. The Knight Riders lost by 12 runs with 3 balls to spare after the Tridents posted 160/6 in their 20 overs.

Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard were the star men with the bat over the course of the campaign, but they were let down by a rather average bowling performance.

Trinbago Knight Riders News


Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, and Lendl Simmons are all available for the Knight Riders in 2020. Their bowling attack looks a little light once again - something which could bite them as it did in 2019.

Guyana Amazon Warriors Form


Guyana Amazon Warriors will still be aggrieved with the way the 2019 Caribbean Premier League ended. After winning 11 matches on the trot to reach the final, they were beaten by Barbados Tridents in the final.

The Barbados Tridents batted first in the final, posting 171 runs. The Guyana Amazon Warriors couldn't get going with the bat and limped their way to 144 runs in their 20 overs.

Brandon King was the tournament's top batsman with 496 runs at an average of 55.11. He will again line up for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in 2020.
