Warriors vs Knight Riders Betting Tips 26/08/2021

Teams Status

Trinbago Knight Riders

The 2021 CPL kicks off with the competition’s most powerful side in action. The Shahrukh Khan-owned franchise had a flawless campaign last year, winning every single one of their dozen games – most by bulldozing through their opponents.

Their roster once again is crazy good, with the likes of captain Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine, Jayden Seales and Tim Seifert all on their books.

They have also lost a few – most notably Dwayne Bravo and Sandeep Lamichhane but they have also gained Colin Munro and Yasir Shah.

Guyana Amazon Warriors

Guyana Amazon Warriors are arguably the unluckiest team in CPL history, as they have no titles to show despite making the five finals.

They can be lauded for their consistency though as they almost always make the final four.

Guyana’s main men will be their overseas allrounders Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez, both of whom have a vast amount of experience under their belt and if they click, their side can finally get off the mark as far as titles are concerned.

Apart from the Pakistani duo, Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmeyer are also a part of Guyana’s squad, which puts them almost as talented a team as KKR.

The Knight Riders are the favourites and it’s totally understandable given their scary form last year. 22Bet has Knight Riders priced at 1.76 and Guyana at 2.064. MelBet has Knight Riders available for 1.762 and Guyana for 2.072. Lastly, Betway has Knight Riders priced at 1.66 and Guyana at 2.15.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Knight Riders to win @ 1.762

Guyana look a very good batting side – almost as strong as the Knight Riders. However, their bowling unit looks a bit incomplete. Granted that they have South Africa’s Imran Tahir and Afghanistan’s Naveen-ul-Haq, they do not have much else, which could spell trouble against the likes of Pollard and others. The play here is for the Knight Riders to start their CPL 2021 campaign with a win over Guyana at odds of 1.762 (MelBet).

Tip: Top batsman for Guyana – Mohammad Hafeez @ 4.98

After a euphoric one year with the bat following World Cup 2019, Mohammad Hafeez has struggled for runs. That said, this is a T20 World Cup year, and Hafeez is one of those who do just enough and at the most perfect time when something big is up for grabs. We fully expect him to be exceptional between now and the big tournament later this year. Therefore, we believe he could start his CPL 2021 campaign with a bang and score the most runs for his side in the opener. The play can be found at 22Bet.


As the tournament progresses, Guyana may eventually prove our apprehensions about their bowling incorrect. But as of right now, their seam unit is light and so we believe they will be at a disadvantage against the Knight Riders.
