Georgetown: Aug 1, 2013:

Debutant teenager Nicolas Pooran stunned the Guyanese Amazon Warriors but Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel fell short by 19 runs in their Caribbean Premier League (CPL) encounter at the Providence Stadium Wednesday.

The 17-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman blasted six sixes and one four on his way to a 24-ball 54 that earned him the fastest innings award. Pooran’s effort provided some optimism for the Red Steel who were chasing 156 for victory but only managed 136 for nine off their 20 overs.

Darren Bravo (23) and Justin Guillen (22) were the only other batsmen that coped with the Warrior spinners Veerasammy Permaul, Sunil Narine and man of the match Krishma Santokie. The crafty Jamaican got the crucial wicket of Darren Bravo, caught by wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin and bowled Kevin O’Brien with a disguised slower delivery for eight in the crucial dying stages of the match. He also spectacularly run out Kevon Cooper before the batsman had faced a ball.

Permaul finished with three for 32, Santokie two for 20 and Narine two for 29.

Brief scores:

Guyana Amazon Warriors 155 for 5 in 20 overs (Lendl Simmons 42, Martin Guptill 32, James Franklin 26*, Ramnaresh Sarwan 21*. Dwayne Bravo 2 for 41) beat Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel 136 for 9 in 20 overs (Nicolas Pooran 54, Darren Bravo 23, Justin Guillen 22; Veerasammy Permaul 3 for 32, Krishma Santokie 2 for 20, Sunil Narine 2 for 29) by 19 runs.
