Amazons make light work of Tallawahs in CPL

Georgetown (Guyana), Aug 3 (IANS/CMC) Lendl Simmons stroked a belligerent half century as Guyana Amazon Warriors sealed a convincing eight-wicket victory over Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League here.

Georgetown (Guyana), Aug 3 (IANS/CMC) Lendl Simmons stroked a belligerent half century as Guyana Amazon Warriors sealed a convincing eight-wicket victory over Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League here.

Needing 118 for victory, the Amazon Warriors romped home thanks to an unbroken third wicket stand of 60 between Simmons and Amazon captain Ramnaresh Sarwan Friday night, reports CMC.

Simmons was quick to pounce on anything loose, spanking five fours and four sixes in a knock of 67 not out off 44 balls. He was aided in his onslaught by Sarwan, whose 24 not out came off 19 deliveries.

Muttiah Muralitharan picked up the only wickets to fall, Martin Guptill bowled for 17 and Mohammad Hafeed caught by Jacques Rudolph for 6. He suffered the indignity of being smashed for three consecutive sixes in the 14th over by Simmons and final figures of two for 33.

Amazons won the toss and decided to give the Tallawahs first strike. The decision proved crucial as the Jamaican-based franchise were dismissed for 117 in 19.1 overs. Carlton Baugh Jnr top scored with 32 and was the last man out. David Bernard Jnr hit 24 and the other batsman to reach double figures was Danza Hyatt who contributed 18.

There were three run outs in the innings, including the crucial scalp of Captain Chris Gayle for six.

Krishma Santokie bowled with great precision and control to claim three for 20 and Veerasammy Permaul held a consistent line bagging two for 24.

The victory for the Amazon Warriors was their second straight of the series.
