The Guyana Amazon Warriors went down to St Lucia Kings by 51 runs in match 13 of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL), and GAW captain Nicholas Pooran has described the Warriors’ performance as inconsistent.
Warriors are in fourth position on the points table, with three defeats and two wins in the five matches they played in the 2021 season thus far.
After the match against Kings, Pooran said he was happy with the bowling effort that restricted the Kings to 149, but the bowling performance was not up to par.
“I was happy about restricting them, but the bowling performance was not up to the mark after two wickets in the first over, and we gave too many free hits. In and after the powerplay, the Kings bowled really well, and credit to them. We have been inconsistent in ticking boxes, and we need to get it all together at the same time,” Pooran explained.
The Warriors will play on Saturday, September 4, against the Barbados Royals at 14:30h at Warner Park St Kitts. Meanwhile, player of the match, Roston Chase, described the surface as a difficult one, but said he was thrilled with his performance, scoring 85 from 50 balls.
“I was happy with my performance. I felt like I was hitting the ball well on a difficult surface and we didn’t even talk during the break, but the guys really came out all guns blazing, so credit must go to the bowlers for the effort, and the spinners came in to finish it off. I was just seeing the ball, hitting the ball, and it paid off. (Favourite shot) Cover drive, I am always known for playing the cover drive, played one in T20 cricket, a classical shot like that,” Chase said at the post match interview. (By: Brandon Corlette)
