Captain Rovman Powell no-nonsense play helps his Jamaica Tallawahs secure their second win in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League with a four-wicket triumph over the Guyana Amazon Warriors at Warner Park in St. Kitts on Saturday.
The Tallawahs won the toss and decided to bowl first, restricting the Amazon Warriors to 142-6 from their 20 overs.
On a difficult pitch for batting, the Warriors could not get their innings up and running, accumulating a mere 71-3 by the time the 15th over was ready to be bowled.
They overcame that slow start thanks to crucial middle-order knocks from Shai Hope (25), captain Shimron Hetmyer (39), Romario Shepherd (36), and Heinrich Klaasen (22).
Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir took 3-22 from his four overs, while South African Migael Pretorious took 2-35 from his four for the Tallawahs.
Captain Rovman Powell then played a masterful knock to help the Tallawahs achieve their target and get their second win of the season.
At one point, Powell had faced 12 balls for just three runs but ended up scoring 44, not out off 38, including just one four and four sixes, three of which came within the last two overs.
Brandon King also contributed 32 as the Tallawahs finished 143-6 off 19.2 overs.
