Date and time: Sept. 09, 2020, at 3.00 AM IST
Preview: The second semi-final of the Caribbean T20 League will be the more exciting of the two semi-finals scheduled for tonight. Both Guyana and St. Lucia recorded 6 wins in the 10 matches they played in this year’s tournament. The two teams won one match each in the two encounters they had, and it will be really hard to pick between the two. Guyana are known to choke under pressure. Can St. Lucia take advantage of that and book their place in the final?
Pitch and Weather Conditions: A temperature of 28 degrees with overcast conditions is predicted. The chances of rain disrupting the match are low. As for the pitch, spinners will once again have the upper hand. Pacers will have to keep altering their pace to make the most of the wicket. The batsmen will have to play carefully and settle down well before trying to hit big shots.
