After having suffered a four-wicket defeat in their opening encounter against Trinbago Knight Riders, Guyana Amazon Warriors got themselves back on the winning track when they defeated St Kitts & Nevis Patriots by three wickets.
Jamaica Tallawahs, on the other hand, got off to a brilliant start to their 2020 CPL campaign by defeating St Lucia Zouks by five wickets. But just like Guyana, they also went down to TKR in their last fixture after they failed their total of 8-135.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs, 2020, 8th Match-Dream 11, Fantasy Tips
- Shimron Hetmyer has been in whirlwind form in this season thus far. The southpaw has racked up back-to-back half-centuries and his 44-ball 71 was instrumental in Guyana chasing down 130 in the last game.
- Keemo Paul [4-19] and Imran Tahir [2-18] were brilliant in the last game and with the pitch expected to be slow down, considering the amount of games being played on the same venue, their variations should once again prove to be handy.
- Glenn Phillips [44 & 58] and Asif Ali [47 & 22] have been absolutely brilliant with the bat thus far for Jamaica Tallawahs.
- Mujeeb Ur Rahman [3 wickets in 2 games] and Sandeep Lamichhane [2 wickets in 2 game] will once again be the key.
- Andre Russell hasn’t got going in the tournament thus far. Expect him to come out all guns blazing in the next game.
