The Guyana Amazon Warriors picked up their sixth straight victory in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after they beat the Barbados Tridents by 12 runs using the Duckworth-Lewis Stern (DLS) method on Sunday.
Chris Green took wickets and finished with astounding figures of 4-14 which reduced the side to a modest total of 138 all out.
The Warriors exerted their dominance throughout the game and made sure that the Tridents weren’t able to stage a comeback with the bat thanks to some brilliant bowling by Keemo Paul, Shoaib Malik and Imran Tahir.
JP Duminy played a crucial knock of 38 from 32 balls but it wasn’t enough for the side to post a competitive total.
In the chase of the 139-run target, Brandon King provided the fireworks for the Warriors and smashed an unbeaten 34-ball 51.
Rain affected play twice during Guyana’s run chase when the Amazon were 77/2 in 10 overs and 81/2 after a space of six balls. This proved to be enough for the side to win the game.
