After thirty games of the round-robin stage, the Caribbean Premier League (2020) has finally reached the business end of the tournament.


Clearly, the four best teams in the competition have reached the semi-finals of CPL 2020. The second match of the knockouts will see Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) clash against St Lucia Zouks (SLZ) at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad.

The last time the two teams met, GAW won the match by seven wickets. Previously, the Zouks won the reverse fixture by a narrow margin of 10 runs.


GAW vs SLZ, Probable XI:

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

The Warriors have won their last four matches played in the competition. Needless to say, the team is expected to field their best XI from the squad.

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Kevin Sinclair, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

St Lucia Zouks:


Zouks have been the most improved side in the history of CPL. They have tended to clinch close games due to their never-say-die attitude in this tournament.

The likes of Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi and Scott Kuggeleijn hold the key for the Zouks in the game.
