The Guyana Amazon Warriors are now the only team in the CPL this season that is unbeaten as they beat the Jamaica Tallawahs by 7 wickets with 2 overs to spare at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. The Guyana Amazon Warriors won the toss and elected to bowl first.
This decision paid dividends for them as they bowled out the Jamaica Tallawahs for 100. This is the Jamaica Tallawahs 4th lowest score in CPL History as their lowest is 80 which was done in 2015 against the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Centurian against Trinidad Chris Gayle was out for a duck in this match as he was given out via the LBW route from the bowling of Sohail Tanvir. The top scorer for the Tallawahs was Rovman Powell who scored 38 runs from 42 balls.
For Guyana there chase did not go off to the best start as they lost their opening 2 wickets with only 11 runs on the board. However a disciplined knock from former Tallawahs player Chris Lynn with 39 runs and Anthony Bramble with 27 led Guyana to their win.
The Tallawahs will play the Barbados Tridents before they come back to Jamaica for their home games.
