Malik’s special keeps Guyana unscathed in CPL 2019

There’s no stopping Guyana Amazon Warriors in the ongoing edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2019. After registering victories in all of their 8 contests, the unit returned with strong spirit against Jamaica Tallawahs to register their 9th consecutive victory in the tournament.

Batting first, Guyana was reduced to 8-4 and the dwellers of the points table looked good to upset the table toppers. Nevertheless, skipper Shoaib Malik had no plan to see his team conceding their first loss of CPL 2019. The 37-year old cricketer played a captain’s knock to rescue Guyana from a precarious position.

Registering his 53rd half-century of T20 cricket, the Pakistani veteran smashed 5 fours and 2 sixes to amass unbeaten 73 runs. 

The support from Sherfane Rutherford meant that Warriors were able to post a competitive total. Building on the stunning batting comeback, Guyana delivered a strong bowling show to get Jamaica dismissed for 79 runs.

Malik once again chipped in with a wicket as his all-round show aided him in winning another player of the match award in the shortest format of the game.
