It won’t be hard to say that the ongoing edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), so far, has been the season of the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Playing 7 games of the tournament, the exciting franchise is yet to lose a single contest. Moreover, they were also the first team to qualify for the play-offs of the competition.
In their recent encounter against St Lucia Zouks at Gros Islet, hosts won the toss and decided to bat first – a decision which didn’t prove useful.
While Colin de Grandhomme registered a stunning batting outing, Guyana’s bowlers were able to control most of Zouks’ batters to keep them to 161. Ben Laughlin and Imran Tahir lead the bowling department and chipped in with 3 and 2 wickets respectively.
Chasing 161, Guyana looked at ease right from the word go. Particularly, the opening batsman Brandon King was found in elite batting form.
Continuing his good run in the West Indian T20 carnival, the 24-year old cricketer scored his 4th T20 half-century to ace the chase. Brandon amassed unbeaten 81 runs consuming only 59 balls. Doing so, he smashed 2 fours and half-dozen sixes to fly away with the player of the match award.
