The tournament's second and third-ranked team in the league round, the Guyana Amazon Warriors and the St Lucia Zouks will play the second semi-final on Tuesday. During the league stages, both teams were in good form and were placed evenly in terms of ability and consistency.
The St Lucia Zouks, going into the semis, romped past the Jamaica Tallawahs in the last league stage match. The Zouks won the game by 11 runs and gave a big jolt to the Tallawahs, ahead of their semi-final match. The Guyana Amazon Warriors defeated the Barbados Tridents by a wide 6-wicket margin in their last game, which was played on Thursday. But, with both teams competing equally, it'll be fun to see which one can win a spot in the all-important Final for themselves.
Tuesday's weather is forecast to be gloomy with a 20% chance of rainfall and a temperature of between 27 and 29 degrees Celsius.
The pitch is supposed to be bowler-friendly at the Brian Lara Stadium, so the batsmen will find it a little hard to work their way around to scoring runs. And, among the bowlers, the spinners will receive the most generous amount of surface support.
Probable Playing XIs:
Guyana Amazon Warriors:
Chris Green (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Ross Taylor, Kevin Sinclair, Sherfane Rutherford/Keemo Paul, Brandon King, Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

Both of these sides will be difficult to distinguish, particularly considering how close they ended up in the CPL points table. Both sides have a bowling attack with a deadly spin and some competent pacers. But the Warriors have superior firepower in their batting, at least on paper. It is predicted the Guyana Amazon Warriors will proceed to the final. Don't hesitate to bet on baji.live now!
