St. Lucia's win over Barbados Tridents has rendered the tournament open with competition growing fiercer with every passing day. Having already played three matches, Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs are set to meet each other on 19th August at Lauderhill. The Tallawahs have been the best team of the tournament so far with three wins in as many matches. Guyana Amazon Warriors, too, have done well with just one loss in the same number of matches as Jamaica Tallawahs. They have a chance to register a win and join the Tallawahs at the top of the table. JT, however, will be looking for yet another win and run away with the lead. With both teams in fine form, it promises to be a cracker of an encounter.
The Tallawahs started their campaign in fine style by defeating Trinbago Knight Riders by four wickets in a high-scoring contest. Andre Russell was the chief-contributor with the bat as he scored 121 in just 49 deliveries. K Lewis, too, did well to hang around with him when the wickets were tumbling at the other end. The duo brought the chase back on track after they looked down and out at 41 for 5 making it one of the best turnaround stories in the history of T20 Cricket.
Although Russell could not contribute much with the bat in the following couple of games, good batting by their experienced players at the top of the order saw them home. Against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, it was their bowlers who restricted Patriots to just 131 while defending 172. Kris Santokie, Adam Zampa, and Imad Wasim were impressive as the duo picked up a couple of wickets each.
While their bowlers could not produce similar kind of result in their third match, they did enough for their batsmen to overpower the total set by St Lucia Stars. Chasing a total of 175, their batting order appeared at its fluent best with Glen Phillips scoring 58 to become top-scorer for them. Powell, Charles, and McCarthy all contributed with valuable cameos as the Tallawahs chased down 176 runs with four wickets in hand.

The Amazon Warriors will be looking for a repeat result of last year's eliminator where they ran past the Tallawah's target by five wickets. Barring their last match, their recent form hasn't been too bad in this edition of the tournament. They won their first two games against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and St Lucia Stars respectively in a comfortable manner.
They, however, failed to repeat the same feat in their last match where they went on to face a heavy defeat at the hands of Barbados Tridents. The Warriors who were playing at home were favorites to win the match before it began, but some excellent batting by Shai Hope and Reifer batted extremely well to end Warriors' home dominance.
They were in an excellent position at the end of the powerplay as Tridents' opening combo of Dwayne Smith and Martin Guptill was dismissed in the opening couple of overs. However, defensive strategy in the middle overs which was coupled with inaccurate death bowling allowed Barbados to get in the game. Warriors then failed to chase the total of 185 as they eventually fell short of the target by 30 runs.

Given the fact that these two have been one of the best two teams in the tournament so far, this game will be of massive importance for both the sides. Both teams will be looking to take advantage, both psychological as well as the points table, with a win here. Considering the strong batting lineup they have with almost each of their batsmen in a fine form combined with the strong spin-heavy bowling, the Tallawahs are better placed to win the upcoming encounter.
