What's the match?

Jamaica Tallawahs take on Guyana Amazon Warriors in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League.

When is it taking place?

The match is scheduled to take place at 7pm local time (GMT-4) on Wednesday, September 21.

Where is the match being played?

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

Who's got the form?

Both sides come into this fixture off the back of a loss and will be looking to get back into winning ways. The Tallawahs are still in need of points to ensure qualification for the playoffs while the struggling Amazon Warriors have little chance of progressing to the next stage of the tournament.

The Amazon Warriors will be a changed team, now without South African internationals Tabraiz Shamsi and Heinrich Klaasen, although they hold onto Imran Tahir.

Both internationals were standout performers in their only victory so far this season against the St Lucia Kings: Klaasen with 61 not out and Shamsi with figures of 2 for 14 from his four overs.

What's the match-up to watch?

The Amazon Warriors will need to make good use of the powerplay, in particular against the left-arm pace of Mohammed Amir who dismissed both Guyana openers cheaply when these two sides last met.

In theory, the Guyana middle order should cope without Klaasen, if West Indies internationals Shai Hope, captain Shimron Hetmyer and hard-hitting Romario Shepherd perform to their capabilities. Shepherd's battle with the usually economical Tallawah spinner Imad Wasim should also be entertaining, as the Guyanan got the better of the Pakistan international earlier in the tournament in St Kitts.

The Tallawahs will also have confidence in their batting, captain Rovman Powell being their standout player so far in the tournament, with 219 runs at an average of 43.8 including 44 not out off 38 balls against the Amazon Warriors in their last meeting.

What's the news from the camps?

The Tallawahs should be at full strength for this clash in front of the Amazon Warriors' home crowd. By contrast, the home side will have to rely on the depth of their squad to replace Klaasen and Shamsi.
