The Guyana Amazon Warriors played out of their skin to thrash St. Lucia Zouks by nine wickets in the seventh game of the Caribbean Premier League on Saturday.

Opting to bowl first, Warriors bundled the visitors out for a paltry 117 off 19.2 overs, with left-arm seamer Krishmar Santokie ripping through the innings to finish with four for 11 and off-spinner Sunil Narine taking two for 21, reports CMC.

In reply, New Zealander Martin Guptil stroked a measured unbeaten 50 off 47 balls and opening partner Lendl Simmons 36 from 27 deliveries, as Amazon Warriors marched to their target off 16 overs at the national stadium.

The victory was the third straight one for last year’s runners-up and it put them on top the table with six points. The only other unbeaten team is defending champions Jamaica Tallawahs with four points from two games.

The Zouks meanwhile, slipped to their second straight loss following their seven-wicket defeat to Tallawahs a week ago. They lost quick wickets straightaway, plunging to 34 for four in the seventh over, and never recovered. The batsmen were never up to the task and only tail-enders Sohail Tanvir with 32 off 25 balls and Mervin Matthew, 21 off 10 deliveries, passed 20-run mark.

Sohail thumped three fours and a six in a robust innings to push Zouks close to the 100-run mark, before Matthew arrived to strike a four and two sixes in a cameo, to see the visitors reach 117. Guptill struck two fours and three sixes while Simmons counted three fours and two sixes, in a 76-run opening stand off 55 balls.

Simmons perished in the 10th over, playing on attempting to steer medium-pacer Darren Sammy to third man, but Mohammed Hafeez (17 not out) joined Guptill to add 52 for the second wicket and see Amazon Warriors over the line.

Brief scores:

St Lucia Zouks 117 off 19.2 overs (Sohail Tanvir 32, Mervin Matthew 21; Krishmar Santokie 4/11, Sunil Narine 2/21) lost to Guyana Aamazon Warriors 118 for one off 16 overs (Lendl Simmons 36, Martin Guptill 50 not out,) by nine wickets.
