GUY are currently in fourth position on the points table with two wins and three defeats in the five matches that they have played so far. A win would propel them to six points and can help them enter the top four.
BR, on the other hand, are languishing at the bottom of the table with just a lone victory to go with their four losses. They still have a slim chance of climbing up the standings but need to start producing top performances soon to make that happen.
GUY vs BR Dream11 prediction
GUY appears stronger in this contest on account of a better win percentage as well as their combination of core players. BR, meanwhile, have resorted to a lot of chopping and changing and are yet to figure out their winning combination. GUY in all probability should win this match with ease.
GUY vs BR Dream11 tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
GUY middle-order batsman Shimron Hetmyer is the one to bank on from the batting perspective in this contest. He scored a splendid 52 against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and a 54 against Trinbago Knight Riders. With two half-centuries in the competition already, Hetmyer commandingly walks into any fantasy side.
Top tip: Best bowler
Romario Shepherd has taken the tournament by storm with his bowling exploits. The GUY bowler joined the team recently and has produced three successive three-wicket hauls to become the biggest threat from the Warriors’ bowling attack, which should make him a sure-shot entry into any fantasy team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
BR all-rounder Jason Holder can play a key role in this contest. Though he has not got going with the bat yet, Holder is used to delivering fine performances under pressure and a big knock could be just around the corner. As for his bowling, the tall all-rounder has three wickets to his name in the ongoing tournament and he will be eager to add to that tally.
Nicholas Pooran serves as the best wicket-keeping pick for this match. He is a solid wicket-keeper and has been in decent touch with the bat for GUY. He scored a 26-ball 41 against St. Lucia Kings in the Warriors’ last outing and can be a threat at any stage of the game.
GUY vs BR probable playing XI
GUY playing XI (probable): Mohammad Hafeez, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (captain), Brandon King, Odean Smith, Shoaib Malik, Anthony Bramble (wicket-keeper), Nial Smith, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir
BR playing XI (probable): Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Smit Patel, Glenn Phillips, Azam Khan (wicket-keeper), Jason Holder (captain), Raymon Reifer, Nyeem Young, Ashley Nurse, Jake Lintott, Oshane Thomas
