Guyana Amazon Warriors will lock horns with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the second semi-final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. The knock-out encounter takes place at the Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts on Wednesday (September 15). Both sides have had a similar campaign this season and it would be interesting to who emerges victoriously here.
Having won six of their 10 league stage games, the Warriors and Patriots finished second and third in the team standings respectively. Notably, these two sides locked horns twice in the group stages and the Patriots won both games. While the Dwayne Bravo-led side would like to extend their dominance, the Warriors will fight for a turnaround.
