Warriors Defeat Tallawahs

Shimron Hetmyer became the youngest centurion in CPL history and the first to do it on American soil, as Guyana Amazon Warriors rallied to victory by 71 runs to hand Jamaica Tallawahs their first loss of CPL 2018.

On paper, the game was listed as a home match for the Tallawahs, but Lauderhill has provided anything but a home-field advantage for Andre Russell’s team, who had just one win in four matches coming into the venue on Saturday night.

A heavily partisan Amazon Warriors crowd of about 4,000 provided a hostile reception to the Tallawahs and fueled the visitors to 209 for 7, the highest CPL total made at the venue, eclipsing the 206 made by St Lucia Zouks against the Tallawahs in the very first CPL match played in Lauderhill in 2016.
