CPL 2019 action returns to Trinidad and Tobago as the defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders face a stern test in the form of Guyana Amazon Warriors on Tuesday. Although both teams started off with four wins out of four, they have experienced contrasting fortunes since then. Guyana are unbeaten in CPL 2019 with Brandon King and Imran Tahir starring for them consistently. The same cannot be said for Trinbago, although a win against Guyana would confirm their playoff spot.
Here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team.

Trinbago Knight Riders
Kieron Pollard (C), Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Denesh Ramdin, Mohd Hasnain, Khary Pierre, James Neesham, Seekuge Prasanna, Amir Jangoo, Anderson Phillip, Mark Deyal, Tion Webster, Javon Searles, Akeal Hossain and Ali Khan

TKR vs GUY Playing XI Updates
Trinbago Knight Riders
Kieron Pollard will expect his players to step up to the fore in what is a crucial match for them. Chris Jordan should come into the side at the expense of Ali Khan while the rest of the side should remain the same. Colin Munro and Lendl Simmons are key to the batting unit with the likes of Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard's cameos also bound to have a say. Their bowling unit depends on Sunil Narine and Khary Pierre, who have done well in the powerplay overs in CPL 2019.
Possible XI: Munro, Simmons, Narine, Pollard (C), Ramdin(WK), Neesham, Prasanna, Jordan, Pierre, Phillip and Bravo.
Guyana Amazon Warriors
No changes are expected from Guyana unless Keemo Paul returns for the game. Chris Green and Imran Tahir have been the standouts with the ball in hand while Brandon King's explosive knocks at the top of the order have also served him well. Shimron Hetmyer and Nicolas Pooran are due for a big knock although they don't have much pressure upon them with qualification already confirmed.
Possible XI: King, Hemraj, Hetmyer, Malik(C), Pooran(WK), Rutherford, Green, Tahir, Odean, Laughlin and Shepherd/Paul.

TKR vs GUY Pitch Report
A flat pitch awaits both sides with some turn also adding spice into the equation. 170 should be par on this surface considering the firepower on either side.
TKR vs GUY Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: With Denesh Ramdin batting too deep down the order, the only viable option is Nicolas Pooran. Although he hasn't reached triple digits in terms of runs scored, he is well and truly capable of scoring big and quick runs towards the end of the innings.
Batsmen: Colin Munro and Shimron Hetmyer were among the top run-scorers in CPL 2018. They haven't reached the heights of the previous season but should take full advantage of the great pitch that is on offer. Along with them, the likes of Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard and Chanderpaul Hemraj are good options as well.
All-rounders: Sunil Narine is a must-have in the team with his all-round abilities bound to bring in a good number of points. Jimmy Neesham's form at the Queen's Park Oval during the first week of the CPL 2019 is taken into consideration and picked in the side as well. Shoaib Malik is also a dependable candidate if the credits suffice.
Bowlers: While one or both of Imran Tahir or Chris Green would be a great addition in the fantasy team, TKR's new recruit Chris Jordan is also one to watch out for. While Khary Pierre has done well along with Narine, Ben Laughlin's death bowling skills make him a valuable asset to any team.
Captain: Shimron Hetmyer and Colin Munro should be backed to score some runs in the top order given the nature of the pitch. If one were to prefer a bowling option for captaincy, the likes of Imran Tahir and Sunil Narine fit the bill nicely.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Sunil Narine, Nicolas Pooran, Colin Munro, Shimron Hetmyer, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Jimmy Neesham, Lendl Simmons, Imran Tahir, Chris Green, Chris Jordan and Khary Pierre. Captain: Colin Munro, Vice-Captain: Shimron Hetmyer
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Nicolas Pooran, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine, Shoaib Malik, Imran Tahir, Chris Green, Khary Pierre and Chris Jordan. Captain: Shimron Hetmyer, Vice-Captain: Sunil Narine
