Trinbago Knight Riders 131-3 (McCullum 65no) beat
Guyana Amazon Warriors 130-5 (Mohammed 66) by seven wickets
17th match, Caribbean Premier League, Guyana

Brendon McCullum scored an unbeaten 65 as Trinbago Knight Riders registered their sixth win of the tournament after beating Guyana Amazon Warriors by seven wickets in the 17th match of Caribbean Premier League at the Providence Stadium.

Chasing 131, Sunil Narine (1) and Colin Murno (11) fell early in the innings. As McCullum (65 not out) was settling at the other end, Darren Bravo (27) played a handy knock as the duo added 55 runs for the second wicket to set a platform.

By the end of the powerplay, Knight Riders were positioned 40 for two. Even though, Bravo fell in the 10th over, McCullum, who was going with a strike-rate just above 100, teed off with back to back sixes in the 15th over that completed his half-century.

He added an unbeaten 58 run stand with Denesh Ramdin (20 not out) and ensured the visitors crossed the line in the 16th over comfortably with seven wickets in hand.

Earlier, Guyana started their innings with a lot of struggle as they lost Chadwick Walton (10), Martin Guptill (4) and Assad Fudadin (13) but Jason Mohammed (66) and Gajanand Singh (27) played valiant knocks to help them recover and post 130 for five in the 20 overs.

McCullum was awarded the man of the match for his matured innings.
