Match 1, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Trinbago Knight Riders – Preview, predicted XIs, match prediction, live streaming, weather forecast, and pitch report – CPL 2021

The biggest carnival of sports will start on 26 August. The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) kicks off with defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders taking on Guyana Amazon Warriors in the first game of the 2021 edition. All matches will be held at Warner Park in Basseterre, St. Kitts.

The Trinbago Knight Riders are the defending champions and they will chase the fifth title. The Guyana Amazon Warriors, on the other hand, have not won a single title and will be looking to win their first.

One of the most consistent franchises of all time in the Trinbago Knight Riders League. Kieron Pollard won the title for him last year and he will be looking forward to repeating it this year.

The team has a few T20 superstars and has started as a favorite in the league. They will be without Dwayne Bravo this season as he has been traded to St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

Nicolas Puran will lead the Guyana Amazon Warriors. They are a batting-heavy team that includes players who can hit long balls. Pooran has been in great form in recent times and his experience will come in handy for Guyana Warriors. Imran Tahir led the team in the spin attack and will play a key role in the team’s progress in the competition.
