CPL 2023: Match 4, SLK vs GAW, Probable XIs; Amazon Warriors looks to start Tournament on positive note with a better performance

Saint Lucia Kings and Guyana Amazon Warriors will lock horns in Match 4 of the Caribbean Premier League 2023 on Saturday, August 19.

The Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia will play host to this match.

The Kings, led by Faf du Plessis, started their campaign with an 11-run defeat at the hands of Jamaica Tallawahs. However, they made amends after beating Barbados Royals by 54 runs in their previous match of the tournament.

Matthew Forde earned the award for the Player of the Match after he finished with figures of 3-1-12-3, picking up the wickets of Justin Greaves, Kevin Wickham and Rovman Powell. On the back of his spell, the Kings bowled the Royals out for 147.

The Warriors, led by Shimron Hetmyer, have a power-packed squad at their disposal. They have two of the most powerful strikers, Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz. Saim Ayub and Mohammad Haria are two promising cricketers.

Along with Hetmyer, the middle order has the likes of Shai Hope, Azam Khan and Dwaine Pretorius. Their batting has enough depth with the likes of Romario Shepherd and Odean Smith likely to bat at No.9 and 10. Imran Tahir brings in loads of experience.
