Guyana Amazon Warriors continued to stamp their authority in the ongoing season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Playing 5 games of the tournament, the franchise registered a victory in all of them to consolidate their top position on the points table.
It was Jamaica Tallawahs who had to face Warriors’ wrath in the recent game of the West Indian T20 frenzy. After winning the toss, Jamaica invited Guyana to bat first, which later proved to be a horrible decision. The away team, loaded with a powerful batting line-up, smashed 218 runs to score their highest total in the history of the competition.
The most welcoming sign was the batting performance of the skipper Shoaib Malik who failed to produce an impactful performance in the first four contests of the championship. Batting with a lot of authority, the Pakistani veteran registered his 52nd T20 half-century. In his innings of substance, Malik scored 6 fours and 3 sixes to muster 67 runs while consuming only 37 balls.
However, the 37-year old failed to receive the man of the match award as South Africa’s Imran Tahir flew away with this honor for a stunning bowling performance. Malik expressed pleasure on his scintillating batting outing as he aims to continue doing well for his side.
