Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to the last four once again as they have never failed to reach the playoffs.
However, Guyana Amazon Warriors have never won the tournament. But after last year’s spectacular performance, this could finally be their year.
Talking of Barbados Tridents, although they hold a strong squad, one cannot ignore the big stars they are missing this season due to travel restrictions.
Jamaica Tallawahs have improved enough to deserve to be considered for the CPL playoffs, but they still have to work to match the top teams after their dismal showing last season. Consistency may be their problem.
St Lucia Zouks, meanwhile, have only reached the playoffs once. St Kitts & Nevis Patriots having a squad depth issue could be the team to drop out.
“The tournament underwent a lot of challenges while trying to make the event happen. Considering the squad, Barbados Tridents still make a strong team. However, considering last season’s performance of Guyana Amazon Warriors, the team stands a chance to win its first title,” says Saloni Tapadiya, Founder – FSL11
She further added, “The game of Cricket still remains unpredictable and cannot be decided solemnly on the basis of squad and team’s performance in the last season. To make an accurate bet and win a fantasy cricket game online one must refer to the pitch report, weather forecast and other small factors like players’ recent performance in matches or change in form. One must not forget that fantasy games offer you to create your dream team. So, analyze the budget and point system properly before selecting players in your team.”
