Tanvir five-wicket haul wrecks Barbados
Guyana Amazon Warriors 158-8 (Mohammed 42) beat
Barbados Tridents 59 (Tanvir 5-3) by 99 runs
25th match, Caribbean Premier League, Kensington Oval
Sohail Tanvir registered terrific figures of three for five as Guyana Amazon Warriors trounced Barbados Tridents by 99 runs in the 25th match at Kensington Oval to keep their hopes alive in the Caribbean Premier League.
Barbados Tridents won the toss and opted to bowl first. Chadwick Walton (20) was handed a reprieve in the first over when he was dropped by Eoin Morgan and he punished Barbados with two boundaries in the next two overs.
Tanvir (7) could not quite succeed in the opening role as he was removed by Wayne Parnell (1-23) in the third over and soon Walton followed him when he was caught at third man off Ravi Rampaul (2-33).
Luke Ronchi (24) and Jason Mohammed (42) tried to keep Guyana upbeat with a brief 29 run stand that came off just 17 deliveries but Barbados fought back well to reduce Guyana to 65 for four before knocks from Assad Fudadin (27) and Roshon Primus (21) ensured they finished their innings at 158 for eight in the 20 overs.
In the chase, Barbados got off to a dreadful start as they lost five wickets in a span of 19 runs. Tanvir (5-3) picked four out of the five.
Only Akeal Hosein (17), Nicholas Pooran (11) and Shamar Springer (14) managed to cross double figures as Barbados were bowled out for just 59 runs in 13.4 overs.
Tanvir was easily the pick of the bowlers as he registered one of the finest figures in the history of the tournament while Rashid Khan (3-15) contributed with a three wicket haul.
