Nicholas Pooran returned to haunt the team which let him go, slamming a stroke-filled unbeaten half-century as Guyana Amazon Warriors strolled to their third straight win with a dominant 47-run victory over Barbados Tridents on Sunday night.
Sent in at the Guyana National Stadium, Amazon Warriors recovered from a shaky start to post a challenging 180 for four, with the left-handed Pooran stroking 61 off just 30 balls.
Left-handed opener Chandrapaul Hemraj had earlier punished the Tridents bowlers with a top score of 63 from 55 deliveries while all-rounder Sherfane Rutherford arrived late on to unleash a savage 14-ball unbeaten 32.
In reply, Tridents extended their woeful run in the CPL dating back to last season, dismissed for 133 in the 17th over with only Ashley Nurse, batting at number seven, showing any enterprise with a top score of 40 of 25 balls. South African left-hander JP Duminy, a late inclusion in the Tridents squad, was the only other player to reach 20.
