Despite being a dominant squad in the league, Guyana Amazon Warriors have never won the title. In the 13th match of the CPL 2021 schedule, St Lucia Kings beat the Warriors by 51 runs.
Guyana Amazon Warriors chose to bowl after the toss. With the first chance to bat, the Kings set a target of 149, losing seven wickets. But when the Warriors’ turn to bat, they were bullied by the Lucia Kings bowlers and couldn’t hit anywhere close to the target. The game ended with the Warriors short of 52 runs to win the match.
The St Lucia Kings batsman, Roston Chase, earned the ‘Player of the Match’ for his impressive batting in the St Lucia Zouks v Guyana Amazon Warriors match. He single-handedly played for the Kings scoring 85 runs in total.
For the St Lucia Kings, Faf du Plessis opened with Andre Fletcher. This pair up was weird and looked like an experiment to play judiciously. This play was opposite to Cornwall’s hard-hitting gameplay. The duo fell in the second over, with Romario Shepherd taking both the wickets. Romario took three consecutive wickets in each match thrice in CPL 2021 until now.
Roston Chase started gaining scores with two consecutive sixes off Chanrapaul Hemraj’s bowling. Chase dominated the game with Mark Deyal alongside him. Deyal struggled to gain 20 runs in a 74-run stand. Overall, Roston hit six fours and seven sixes before going out in the penultimate over of St Lucia Zouks v Guyana Amazon Warriors. The Kings ended their batting with 149 runs.
As for the outstanding defence, Alzarri Joseph took out Hemraj. Shoaib Malik, the third in the batting lineup, went out like Obed McCoy too. In the end, the Guyana Amazon Warriors were at 16 runs with four wickets. The match was not long after the powerplay went out. Hetmyer struggled for a bit before going out at 21 runs. Pooran’s brief but positive gameplay brought the scores up a bit. But after Pooran holed out on the long-on, they continued to play for the sake of formality.
