HEADLINE: Guyana end TKR streak 2018-09-10 05:15:30 

GUYANA Amazon Warriors ended a six-match winning streak by the Trinbago Knight Riders last night to squeak into the top two as the preliminary round of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) ended at Providence Stadium in Guyana.

Guyana, facing a TKR team resting a couple of their top bowlers such as pacer Ali Khan and off-spinner Sunil Narine, comfortably won by six wickets after restricting their rivals to a modest 154 for seven in their 20 overs.

The victory saw Guyana (12 points) leapfrog the Jamaica Tallawahs (12 points) into second spot with a better net run rate. TKR, on 14 points, had already sealed top spot in the group. The result sets up an intriguing qualifier tomorrow at the same venue between the same teams but with Guyana suddenly with bubbling with self-belief and boasting the backing of a cricket-crazed nation in their backyard.

The Knight Riders, with a full strength team, easily took down the Amazon Warriors, last Friday, at the Queen’s Park Oval, but they just needed to look around to realise they were far away from home. Away games had been no problem for Dwayne Bravo’s team the entire season except for last night. The defeat was their first loss away from home for the campaign and Guyana suddenly look extremely dangerous on home soil.

Shimron Hetmyer, the youngest player to score a CPL century earlier this season, blazed a half-century and the 21-year-old dynamite looks unstoppable once his fuse is lit. Hetmyer lashed a scintillating 59 with three boundaries and five maximums.

Match fixing?

What do you think? I would like to hear you view.

Let me ask a question too....was it match fixing when the Tallawahs beat up Warriors the night before? Didn't Powell and Taylor murder the bowling chasing the same way Hety and Rutherford did...Isn't it a known that dew affect the bowlers later in the evening?

We just rested two players Natty, it's not collusion.

The game meant nutting to us.

We were in first place and didn't want to injure our
best two bowlers.

In reply to sgtdjones… the only player that was not aware there was a fix, was Ramdin.

In reply to sgtdjones…. Ramdin was not in on the fix, not the way he batted, would a roll over like the rest.

lol lol lol

In reply to sgtdjonesTrinidad have all the umpires playing for them. The only time Trinidad batsmen get out is when they are bowled or clearly caught. Yes the fix is in.

rhatid 2018-09-12 09:58:20 

In reply to natty_foreverTrust me, Ramdin was also in with the fix. But you have to make the game look authentic. So Ramdin, being one of the most experienced on the team, played his role. But they will regret it.

In reply to rhatid

WE go still win the trophy

No collusion
