Clear weather is on the cards for this game with a no chance of rain interrupting the game. According to AccuWeather, humid conditions are expected with a humidity percentage around the 70-run mark. The temperatures should hover between 28 and 30 degrees Celsius during the course of the match.
Although the pitch at the Providence Ground is a good one to bat on, spin should have the final say in the outcome of the game. Pacers will revert to change of pace more often than not with the pitch being a touch slow. With the shorter boundaries coming into play, an even contest between bat and ball awaits.

Colin Munro was the player of the tournament last time around as he starred for TKR. The last time these two sides faced off, Kieron Pollard scored a swashbuckling fifty and looks good for more against the Guyanese bowlers. Similar to Munro, Shimron Hetmyer also had a stunning year with 440 runs to his name. With only 203 runs this year, he is due for more.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Colin Munro, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard
Vice-Captain – Chris Green, Nicolas Pooran, Jimmy Neesham
Colin Munro’s record in the T20 format makes him a bankable option with the Kiwi due for a big knock in CPL 2019.
