This match will be a great contest between the two teams. Trinbago Knight Riders has better balance and depth in their batting department. Guyana Amazon Warriors lack depth in their pace attack and will rely heavily on their spinners. It should be noted that both the teams have equal competency in the spin department. Since Trinbago Knight Riders have upper hand, we expect them to win the match.
