What's the match?

Guyana Amazon Warriors take on Trinbago Knight Riders in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League.

When is it taking place?

The match is scheduled to take place at 7pm local time (BST-5) on Saturday, September 24.

Where is the match being played?

The game is due to be staged at the Providence Stadium, Guyana.

Who's got the form?

The two bottom teams in the table go head-to-head, with both sides needing to win to retain their hopes of a playoff berth. Guyana still have two games remaining, but this is Trinbago's last match and they will be out if they are beaten for a sixth time this season. Whoever wins will ensure they finish above St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, who won the tournament in 2021 but have endured a difficult campaign.

Guyana have found form late on, winning on consecutive days against St Lucia Kings and Jamaica Tallawahs, with Shai Hope - who struggled for rhythm at the start of the competition - rediscovering his power game in the last week.

Trinbago have been pegged back in their last two outings, giving Patriots their third win of the season in their most recent encounter, having lost by one run against St Lucia Kings on Monday.

What's the match-up to watch?

Hope's revival has given Guyana a major boost, whose leading run-scorer remains Shimron Hetmyer, though Amazon Warriors' captain remains without a half century this season.

Tim Seifert is Trinbago's leading run-scorer; he has scored runs consistently for Knight Riders, albeit at a far slower rate than is typical for him. Ravi Rampaul, the veteran seamer, is their leading wicket-taker. 

What's the news from the camps?

It's hard to see Guyana moving away from the side that has won twice in quick succession, though Shakib al  Hasan has made consecutive ducks since joining up with the franchise.
