Team news, key match-ups, TV and streaming information, weather forecast, odds, form rundown, start times, venue, squad lists and more


What's the match?

Barbados Royals take on Guyana Amazon Warriors in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League.

When is it taking place?

The match is scheduled to take place at 10am local time (GMT-5) on Sunday, September 18.

Where is the match being played?

This game is due to be staged at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy on Trinidad.

Who's got the form?

Barbados Royals are at the top of the CPL table, four points clear of second-placed Jamaica Tallawahs. The Royals won their opening six matches but suffered a surprise six-run DLS loss against the Tallawahs last time out.

Guyana Amazon Warriors, meanwhile, are at the foot of the table, with one win from five matches - a six-wicket win over St Lucia Kings. They are by no means out of contention for the knockout stages, sitting just two points behind fourth place, but suffered a disappointing 26-run defeat against fellow strugglers TKR in their most recent outing.

The two sides are yet to meet in the 2022 CPL.

What's the match-up to watch?

Barbados Royals captain David Miller will be the player every Guyana Amazon Warriors bowler will be hoping to capture the wicket of. The South African is flying with the bat in the middle order, scoring 166 runs at a strike rate of 155.14 and always seems to be around to anchor his side's innings after a shaky start or play a finisher's knock as the situation demands.

He's only been dismissed twice so far in the 2022 CPL, both times by pace bowling - perhaps it's time for Odean Smith or Romario Shepherd to step up with the ball.

What's the news from the camps?

Neither side has any new injury concerns. Guyana Amazon Warriors have favoured consistency in selection, using eight players in all four completed matches. Barbados Royals, by contrast, have already used 16 different players.
