HAVING BEEN denied the Hero Caribbean Premier League title by the Jamaica Tallawahs on two occasions, the Guyana Amazon Warriors finally got their revenge by knocking out the 2016 champions in this year’s eliminator at Brian Lara Academy in Tarouba on Wednesday night.
Leg-spinner Rashid Khan was one of architects of the five-wicket win, grabbing the tournament’s first hat-trick to finish with three for 32 to keep the Tallawahs to 168 for eight after they had been sent in to bat first.
The Warriors replied with 169 for five, with Luke Ronchi hitting five fours and five sixes in his 33-ball 70. Assad Fudadin also got in on the act with two sixes and two fours to finish off the game in 17.5 overs, while Chadwick Walton’s good form at the top of the innings continued with the right hander hitting 39 off 23 balls, with two sixes and five fours.
Walton and Ronchi added 67 for the second wicket to set the platform for what turned out to be an easy chase for the Warriors.
