This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for Match 29 of the CPL 2021 between Jamaica Tallawahs and Guyana Amazon Warriors that is scheduled to take place on the 13th of September 2021.
The Nicholas Pooran-led side has won four games and lost four games as they are standing at fifth in the points table. On the other hand, Jamaica Tallawahs also won the same number of games but having a good run rate so they are at third position in the points table.
Guyana Amazon Warriors won their last complete game against Saint Lucia Kings by 17 runs. While batting first, Brandon King scored a magnificent 77 runs at the top and Pooran assisted him with 25 runs. In the bowling department, Odean Smith picked 2/12 and Gudakesh Motie also picked 2/12 in their spells.
While batting first, Jamaica Tallawahs smashed 211 runs in 20 overs against Saint Lucia Kings. Kennar Lewis scored an outstanding 56 and Russell played a decent cameo of 33 runs. While defending this huge total, Imad Wasim picked three wickets in his spell. Andrew Russell (2/34) and Braithwaite (2/13) also took wickets as Jamaica won the game by 55 runs.
Venue: Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts
Pitch and Weather: Likely to be a typical Caribbean pitch that will offer more to the bowlers so far and the batters have been able to score after getting an eye in. Several games were in the range of 140-160 and we can see the same in this game as well. Sunny weather is expected on the match-day and the temperature will be around 28C.
Date & Time: September 13, 12.00 AM IST
Probable Playing XIs
Jamaica Tallawahs have won two back-to-back games so they are unlikely to make any changes in the playing XIs. Kennar Lewis is the consistent performer at the top along with Shamarh Brooks. Andrew Russell and Rovman Powell will hold the middle order. Carlos Brathwaite is assisting with both bat and ball. The bowling attack defended targets in consecutive games so they will be unchanged.
Shoaib Malik and Shimron Hetmyer will be under the scanner but likely to retain their places in this match. Odean Smith became one of the top performers for Guyana in recent matches. Brandon King and Hemraj will open for the Warriors in this game. Mohammad Hafeez and Nicholas Pooran will be the main middle-order batsmen. In the bowling department, Odean Smith and Gudakesh Motie performed well in the last game.

Jamaica Tallawahs have a more balanced batting order compared to Warriors. However, Guyana has won a couple of matches with brilliant game-play but Jamaica Tallawahs will start as favorites to win this game.
Batsmen: Shamarh Brooks played a couple of match-winning knocks so he can be selected. Rovman Powell is consistently scoring important runs and bowling a couple of overs for Jamaica. Chandrapaul Hemraj has already scored one big knock so he can’t be ignored from the batting section.
Wicket-Keepers: Kennar Lewis scored 243 runs with an average of 30 in this season. He will also give fantasy points with his glove-work so he will be the best wicket-keeping option in this match.
All-rounders: Andrew Russell played an aggressive knock of 33 in 15 balls and also picked two wickets in the last game. Imad Wasim also picked three wickets in the last game so he can be selected. Odean Smith is undoubtedly the most improved player in this second half of CPL 2021. Mohammad Hafeez can be picked as the fourth all-rounder in this game.
Bowlers: Migael Pretorius is the second-highest wicket-taker in this CPL 2021 with 15 wickets to his name. Romario Shepherd is just right behind him with 14 wickets. Imran Tahir picked 11 wickets in this tournament so he can be picked as the third bowler in today’s game.
Fantasy Team: Kennar Lewis, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shamarh Brooks, Rovman Powell, Mohammad Hafeez, Andrew Russell(VC), Odean Smith(C), Imad Wasim, Imran Tahir, Migael Pretorius, Romario Shepherd
Captain – Odean Smith
Odean Smith picked 10 wickets this season for Warriors with an average of just 18. He can also play cameo at a higher strike rate in the lower order so Odean Smith will be the best pick to captain in this match.
Vice-Captain – Andrew Russell
Andrew Russell is the automatic pick for any T20 side in the world. The power-hitter showed glimpses of his form in the last match so he can be picked as vice-captain.
