Guyana Amazon Warriors ended Jamaica Tallawahs’ campaign in this CPL 2021 after beating them by 14 runs (DLS Method) in a rain-curtailed match. 

Batting first, the Warriors didn’t have a great start to the innings as they lost wickets at regular intervals and were soon left tottering at 75/7 when Romario Shepherd and Motie joined hands and steadied the ship for the side. 

Shepherd chipped in with an unbeaten 31-ball 72 which included six sixes to anchor the side to a total of 142/7 in 18 overs. 

Imad Wasim was the pick of the bowlers for Jamaica after he returned with figures of 3/15 in his allotted 4 overs while Chris Green and Andre Russell picked up a couple of wickets apiece. 

Later, the Tallawahs never really got into the groove and witnessed a batting collapse to get bowled out for 128 in 17.1 overs. The Jamaican side were reduced to 89/9 before Green struck a quick-fire 31 off 20 but his efforts weren’t enough to take the team over the line. 

Shepherd and Odean Smith picked up three wickets each for Guyana while Imran Tahir had two scalps to his name. 

Jamaica skipper Powell admitted that the batting collapse and the failure of the middle-order was a major reason for their defeat in this clash. 

“I think we got a good start with the ball, we talk about getting right in the first 5-6 overs and I think we did that and at the back-end we kind of strayed a little from our plans. Just a little bit of hope there (last wicket partnership), but the middle-order didn't stand up and if the middle-order don't do well it's always gonna be difficult. Lots of positives for us,” he said after the match.
