THE Guyana Amazon Warriors’ preparation for the August 8 to September 16 Hero Caribbean Premier League 2018 continued last evening with the first of two practice matches at Providence.
The Amazon Warriors squad and several of Guyana’s leading First-Class players were a part of the game, which provided the much-needed turf practice for the Warriors unit before their first game of the season on Thursday.
The match was played in overcast conditions and on a pitch which provided inconsistent bounce and pace. The match eventually ended prematurely.
Batting first, Malik X1 reached 187-6 in their 20 overs with attacking Test batsman, Shimron Hetmyer, stroking a composed 66, including four fours and three sixes.
He received support from skipper Shoab Malik (47) and Sherfane Rutherford (40). Left-arm pacer, Pakistan’s Sohail Tanvir claimed 3-23, while Guyanese Raun Johnson, one of the First-class player, took two wickets.
In reply, Jason Mohammed X1 reached 58-6 in 11.1 overs when rain brought an end to the game.
The final practice game will commence this afternoon from 18:00hrs.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
