Caribbean T20 League

Match 4- SLK vs GUY

 

Preview

The high-voltage action is set to continue in the Caribbean T20 League 2023 as the Saint Lucia Kings clash against the Guyana Amazon Warriors on Sunday, August 20. The Match 4 of the tournament will be played at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia. 

After being crushed by Jamaica Talhawas in the event's opener, Saint Lucia Kings rebounded right away in the tournament's following encounter, defeating Barbados Royals by a large margin of 54 runs. With a win in this ongoing clash, they will try to build on their momentum for the remainder of the tournament.

Guyana Amazon Warriors, the reigning champions of the Caribbean T20 League, will play the opening game of the tournament and will be looking to get off to a good start. On paper, GAW appears to be the clear favourite for the match, but their players will need to play strong cricket to beat a club that has defeated the Barbados Royals handily.
