SLK vs GAW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Sep 25, 2019
The fight for the final two places in the CPL 2019 Payoffs is heating up and the table is expected to change with every result. The St. Lucia Zouks won an important game against the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots to jump up to fourth in the table. They are now going to face the Guyana Amazon Warriors, less than 24 hours after that victory.
The Guyana Amazon Warriors have already qualified for the CPL 2019 payoffs and will now be focused on keeping the top spot. Six wins from six matches show the kind of dominance the Warriors have enjoyed so far.
They are not going to be easy to beat in this match either.
St. Lucia Zouks vs Guyana Amazon Warriors CPL 2019 is going to be played at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St. Lucia on the 25th of September 2019.
SLK vs GAW Team Previews
St Lucia Kings
There is never any shortage of fireworks when the St. Lucia Zouks play and this was once again on display in their previous match. Andre Fletcher and Rakheem Cornwall helped their side get off to a blazing start before Colin Ingram joined the party.
Over 70 runs in the first powerplay with just one wicket down was the perfect start for the St. Lucia Zouks. They did lose some quick wickets after that but for once, the lower middle-order stood up and performed.
Darren Sammy hit 30 from just 19 balls while Christopher Barnwell scored 27 not out from 23 balls to help the St. Lucia Zouks get to a respectable total.
Some extremely tight bowling from Hardus Viljoen, Fawad Ahmed, and Colin de Grandhomme ensured that the Zouks were able to defend their total with ease. We have always rated the St. Lucia Zouks bowling pretty highly thanks to the presence of Hardus Viljoen and Fawad Ahmed but felt like the side was let down by some poor tactics in the past.
If Darren Sammy can continue to utilize his bowling resources efficiently and the batsmen can be a bit more consistent then the St. Lucia Zouks can pull off some big upsets in the future.

Guyana Amazon Warriors
The Guyana Amazon Warriors have remained unbeaten in CPL 2019 thanks to a number of its players playing match-winning performances. The foundation of the team is strong with a very good spin-bowling attack, power hitters across the batting lineup, and some experienced players to lead the side.
This has allowed the side to be able to adapt to any conditions it has come across and emerged victoriously.
We think the surface in St. Lucia is going to be helpful for the Guyana Amazon Warriors spinners. Chris green, Imran Tahir, and the option to play a third quality spinner gives the Warriors a big advantage. Shoaib Malik also bowled his full quota of overs very economically in the previous match and adds another option to the bowling attack.
With Keemo Paul also in the lineup, the Guyana Amazon Warriors bowling lineup is going to be tough for the St. Lucia Zouks to negotiate.
The batting for the Warriors is built around Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran but a number of other good players have emerged this season. Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Sherfane Rutherford, and Shoaib Malik have all played some very good innings this season already.
This is a batting lineup that is full of confidence and is not going to worry about chasing down a big target if it comes to that.

SLK vs GAW Betting Tips
We think that the Guyana Amazon Warriors hold all the aces going into this match. Their batting is far stronger and the bowling is very good as well. The St. Lucia Zouks have won their previous match and showed that they are very dangerous at their best but we just don’t trust their batting to be consistent enough for too long.
Bet on the Guyana Amazon Warriors to win.
