Preview:

USA and Guyana play each other on the final day of the Super50 Cup league phase on Monday. Guyana is third in the Group A table with a win required to keep them in the hunt for a knockout spot. They trail the West Indies Emerging Team by two points going into the final day. Their opponents, USA, are at the bottom of the table with only one win to show for their efforts this season. Their previous clash saw Guyana sneak past the USA by 13 runs. The Guyanese will look for another such result although the USA isn’t one to be taken lightly.

No rain is expected during the course of the game. The humidity of 79% is expected at the start of the game, according to AccuWeather while the temperature will range from 26 to 30 degrees Celsius during the course of the game. Dew should also come into play in the second half of the game.

Pitch Condition/Report:

A decent batting track is on offer with teams opting to bat first here. With the pitch slowing down during the course of the game, spinners will have a say in the outcome of the match. The previous game saw the team batting first enjoy the conditions upfront and should be no different on Monday as well
