JAMAICA OBSERVER – Another dismal batting performance saw Jamaica Tallawahs slumping to a disappointing 84-run defeat to Guyana Amazon Warriors in their final home Hero Caribbean Premier League game here at Sabina Park, on Sunday.
The Tallawahs once again lost captain Christopher Gayle cheaply for 11 runs, and a collapse followed soon after as they were bowled out for 95 from 15.5 overs.
The middle and lower order with the exception of Andre Russell (28), Narsingh Deonarine (18), and Chris Lynn (16), continued to struggle, as no other batsman made a useful contribution.
Lanky seamer Ransford Beaton ripped through the Tallawahs lower order, taking 4-9 from 2.5 overs, with strong support from Sunil Narine (2-9) and Marchant De Lange (2-17).
Earlier, Guyana Amazon Warriors led by a crucial unbeaten 65 off 30 balls by Australian Brad Hodge posted a daunting 179-3 off their 20 overs. Hodge’s knock included three boundaries and six sixes.
Assad Fudadin was the next top scorer with 54 from 43 balls, including four boundaries and two sixes.
Left-arm swing bowler Krishamar Santokie (1-16), Jerome Taylor (1-46) and Andre Russell (1-39) took the wickets for the Tallawahs.
