The ‘biggest party of the summer’- CPL T20 2020- is just about heating up and the 16th game will see Guyana Amazon Warriors square off against Trinbago Knight Riders at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad.
Trinbago Knight Riders are THE team to beat in the tournament. The Kieron Pollard-led unit is yet to be beaten in the 2020 CPL. Riding on a three-match winning streak, TKR is currently locking horns with St Lucia Zouks and going by the current situation- STZ- 6-111 after 17.1 overs- they might make it four in four ahead of their encounter against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
This will be the second meeting between these two sides in this edition. The last time they met, Guyana Amazon Warriors was undone by the all-round display of Sunil Narine, who scored a half-century besides claiming two wickets.
Shimron Hetmyer will be hoping to emulate his exploits of the first meeting. The southpaw, after scoring back-to-back half-centuries has registered a string of low scores and the Warriors will be hoping that he, along with Pooran and Ross Taylor lead the way in the batting department; something that has not been the case in the last two games.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Trinbago Knight Riders, 2020, 16th Match- Dream 11, Fantasy Tips
- Colin Munro [116 runs at 58], Darren Bravo [98 runs at 49], and skipper Kieron Pollard, who scored a brilliant 41 against Barbados Tridents will be the key with the bat for TKR.
- Lendl Simmons [38 runs in 4 games] had endured a poor campaign thus far. But he is too good a player to keep missing out.
- Sunil Narine was rested by TKR in their last game against St Lucia Zouks. The all-rounder has claimed 4 wickets at 13.75 besides scoring 111 runs at 37.00.
- India’s Pravin Tambe played his first game of the tournament against the Zouks and he once again impressed with his guile. He is another prudent pick apart from Dwayne Bravo, Ali Khan and Fawad Ahmed.
- As far as Guyana Amazon Warriors are concerned, Shimron Hetmyer [143 runs at 35.75] hasn’t fired in the past three games. He, along with Ross Taylor [87 runs at 17.5] and Nicholas Pooran [105 runs at 21] will hold the key.
- Imran Tahir [9 wickets at 14.3], Naveen Ul Haq [5 wickets at 21.6], Keemo Paul [7 wickets at 17] will spearhead the bowling department.
