Guyana Amazon Warriors made it to the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) final by defeating Shakib's Barbados Tridents in the first qualifier by 30 runs on Sunday at Providence Stadium in Guyana.
Brandon King was the star performer for the Warriors as he played a blistering 132-run knock from 72 balls, with 10 boundaries and 11 maximums as Guyana Amazon Warriors posted a massive total of 218-3 in their 20 overs. The Tridents managed 188-8 on the board in chase of the 219-run target.
Shakib Al Hasan was bit expensive this time as he finished with figures of 0/46 in four overs. Alex Hales and Shakib Al Hasan took the side past 50. However, both batsmen fell in quick succession as Hales scored 19-ball 36, while Shakib contributed just five runs to the side which was reduced to 59-3 in 7.5 overs.
Jason Holder and Jonathan Carter put on a 44-run partnership with the latter being the aggressive of the two as he scored 49 from 26 deliveries with five boundaries and three sixes to his name.
Holder departed for his gutsy 29 while Raymon Reifer was dismissed on the very next delivery. Ashley Nurse was batting at 13 runs before the innings came to a close. Tridents will now play Trinbago Knight Riders in the second qualifier on Oct 10.
