Match 28- GUY vs. TKR
Guyana Amazon Warriors will cross swords with Trinbago Knight Riders for the 28th match of the ongoing Caribbean T20 League. The game will be hosted by Providence Stadium in Guyana on Sunday, September 17.
GUY has already qualified for the Playoffs stage being in the first position in the Group stage with 6 wins in 8 matches collecting 13 points so far. TKR has also qualified for the next stage and is just sitting below the Warriors in the Caribbean T20 League points table with 6 wins in 9 games with just a lower Net Run Rate.
The home side lost their last match against Saint Lucia Kings by seven wickets. GUY batting in the first place registered 167 runs at the loss of 5 wickets. Azam Khan has been the best run-scorer for the side with 40 runs. Alzarri Joseph picked 2 wickets from the other side to restrict the flow of runs. The score seemed quite easy for the Lucia Kings, Colin Munro and Bhanuka Rajapaksha scored 55 and 86 runs respectively to boost the run-chase and finish it within 18 overs. Romario Shepherd, Keemo Paul and skipper Imran Tahir picked a wicket each but that wasn’t enough to stop the SLK batters.
The Knights, on the other hand, won their last game against SLK by seven wickets. Their bowling wasn’t very impressive as Sunil Narine, Jayden Seales and Waqar Salamkheil were the only bowlers from the team who shared one wicket apiece in the first half of the game. The Lucia Kings drafted a total of 167 runs riding on the back of Colin Munro who smashed 72 runs off just 51 balls. Sean Williams also played a thunderous cameo scoring 34 off just 17 balls to provide a perfect finish to their side. The Knight Riders with the likes of Mark Deyal (57), and Locan Tucker (38) recovered most of the runs before the big man ‘Russell’ came in to finish off the game hitting 29 runs in just 13 balls with 2 fours and 3 sixes to win the match with 7 balls to spare.
