Recent Match Report - Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs

Guyana Amazon Warriors 118 (King 29, Brathwaite 3-14, Lamichhane 3-18) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 104 for 7 (Russell 52*, Green 2-10) by 14 runs

A valiant effort from Andre Russell with the bat fell just short in the Jamaica Tallawahs’ chase after a sterling spin-bowling display by Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane in the first innings was neutralised by Chris Green as the Guyana Amazon Warriors battled back after being bowled out for 118 to record a dramatic 14-run win at the Brian Lara Academy.

What seemed a simple target at the innings break turned into a steep uphill climb moments after the start of the reply as Green shocked the Tallawahs top order to leave them reeling at 4 for 3 in the fourth over. The middle order soon went into their shell, culminating in 80 dot balls out of the 120 legal deliveries as the Warriors set a new mark for the lowest total successfully defended in CPL history.

Mujeeb mixes his speeds

The Afghanistan mystery spinner was too much to handle for the Warriors, dismantling a red-hot start in the powerplay from Brandon King and Chandrapaul Hemraj. After darting in his stock ball close to 100kph, Mujeeb gave it more air and teased King into a slog on a fuller length but the missed swipe resulted in the leg bail being dislodged. Mujeeb then went back to a quicker, skiddier delivery to greet Shimron Hetmyer, who played for the turn when there was none and dragged a cut onto his leg stump to put Mujeeb on a hat trick.

Two overs later, Mujeeb was at it again against Nicholas Pooran. To a similar line and length ball with which Hetmyer was dismissed, Pooran played for no turn. But on a delivery that was given more air, it produced more turn and clipped the outside edge of an attempted cut for a catch to be snatched by Glenn Phillips. From 56 for no loss, Mujeeb’s intervention had reduced the Warriors to 67 for 4.

Lamichhane brings the Sand-storm

The inability of the Warriors batsmen to handle Lamichhane’s turn resulted in a marvellous display of both economy and wickets, as the Nepal legspinner ended with 2 for 8 from his four overs. The first wicket came with a bit of fortune as Sherfane Rutherford’s attempted cut to a googly that spun far enough out of reach resulted in a thick edge flying to Mujeeb at short third man.

Lamichhane then fooled Green with a legbreak for his second wicket as the Warriors captain went too far across his stumps and was bowled around his pads to leave the Warriors at 92 for 7. Carlos Brathwaite helped clean up the tail to end with three wickets as the Warriors were bowled out with five balls left unused.

Russell left to clean up top-order mess

Green has been a galvanising leader in his short time as the Warriors captain and proved it on this occasion with an inspiring opening spell. He struck with the first ball of the Tallawahs’ reply, trapping Chadwick Walton lbw with an arm ball. In the third over, he was aided by an extremely favourable decision from umpire Gregory Brathwaite when Nkrumah Bonner missed a pull to a half-tracker that struck Bonner near the waistline. Debutant left-arm spinner Ashmead Nedd followed up in the next over, gaining extra bounce off his first ball to induce a false cut to point by Phillips, leaving the Tallawahs shell-shocked.

By the time Russell arrived in the 13th over it was 48 for 5, soon to be 50 for 6 when Rovman Powell flat-batted a slower bouncer from Naveen-ul-Haq to long-on. Accompanied by Lamichhane and then Fidel Edwards for the rest of the innings, Russell regularly turned down singles as he decided on boundaries or nothing as the way to an increasingly unlikely victory. The strategy almost paid off.

With 60 needed from four overs, Russell bashed a pair of boundaries over midwicket and third man off Keemo Paul in an 11-run over. He then began the 18th over tonking Imran Tahir for back-to-back sixes over the leg side before a cut was misfielded at point to provide another boundary. With 32 needed off 12 balls, he creamed a slower ball from Naveen over midwicket again for six before edging an attempted yorker through third man for four.

Suddenly, 22 from ten looked very gettable. But Naveen held his nerve, mixing up his pace through the final four balls to hold Russell scoreless, an effort which helped earn him Player-of-the-Match award. Edwards took a single off Paul to begin the final over, but Russell scuffed the next two balls to boundary riders, leaving a Tallawahs victory mathematically impossible barring any extras.

Report

Matt Quinn claimed the third Glamorgan wicket to fall but only 6.2 overs were possible

Glamorgan 64 for 3 trail Kent 307 by 243 runs

Glamorgan moved to 64 for 3 against Kent on day three of their LV= Insurance County Championship match at Canterbury, trailing by 243 at stumps after just 6.2 overs were possible due to a waterlogged outfield and then bad light.

Matt Quinn took the only wicket to fall, removing Joe Cooke for 10, leaving him with figures of 2 for 10. Billy Root and Kiran Carlson were the not out batsmen, on 26 and nought respectively.

Play was delayed until 5.19 pm after heavy overnight rain left several areas of the outfield unplayable, with umpire James Middlebrook’s shoes making an audible squelch as he strolled towards the pavilion to deliver the bad news following one of six pitch inspections.

When the action did finally get underway, with around 50 diehard fans still in the ground, Glamorgan resumed on 55 for 2 in reply to Kent’s 307 all out. Just five runs had been added when Quinn knocked back Cooke’s off stump in the 25th over, the batsman failing add to his overnight score.

Root initially looked more comfortable, driving Stevens for four through long-off but then surviving an appeal for caught behind off next delivery.

With the light deteriorating the players went off after just 24 minutes and with increasingly heavy rain falling, play was abandoned for the day. A bleak forecast for Sunday means the Group C game is almost certain to end in a draw.

Only 11 overs possible at wet Wantage Road, with Keaton Jennings the batter to fall

Lancashire 75 for 1 vs Northamptonshire

Gareth Berg made the only breakthrough for Northamptonshire as just 11 overs were possible on another rain-affected day of this LV= County Championship tie with Lancashire at Wantage Road.

The evergreen seamer found plenty of bounce and movement and claimed his 20th wicket of the season when he enticed Keaton Jennings to drive loosely at a ball outside off stump and edge through to wicketkeeper Adam Rossington, who took a comfortable catch.

With Jennings departing for 27, Alex Davies was joined by Luke Wells and the pair faced a testing spell from Berg and Ben Sanderson, fresh from their 19-wicket demolition of Sussex two weeks ago. They maintained pressure, beating the bat regularly and making it difficult to score.

Davies did manage to break the shackles briefly by cutting a rare wide one from Sanderson for four and later driving him through midwicket for another boundary. By the time play was called off Lancashire had advanced to 75 for 1 after 28.1 overs.

The start of play was delayed until 2.30pm due to a wet outfield after the whole of the second day was lost to heavy rain. Jennings and Davies were resuming on 59 without loss, their fourth 50 opening stand of the season.

After further interruptions due to showers, the umpires called stumps shortly after 4pm following further rain and hail which turned the outfield white as the players left the field.

WATCH: Chris Cooke comically bumps into stumps during a County Championship match against Kent

In the ongoing Group 3 match between Kent and Glamorgan of County Championship 2021 at St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury, a funny incident involving Glamorgan wicketkeeper captain Chris Cooke captured everyone’s attention.

It all happened in the 28th over of Kent’s first innings bowled by Australian pacer Michael Neser. The fast-bowler bowled a short of a good length delivery around the middle and leg stump which was tapped by Sam Billings down to fine leg for a single.

The fielder collected the ball and threw it towards the strikers’ end. Cooke, who was standing behind the wickets, quickly came near the stumps to collect the red leather. The throw was a bit off target and while catching the ball, the wicketkeeper ended up crashing over the stumps before falling onto the ground. As soon as Cooke fell, his teammates couldn’t control their emotions and burst out in laughter.

Here is the video:

Darren Stevens rescues Kent with a sensational ton

After winning the toss, Glamorgan asked Kent to bat first and bundled them out for 307 runs. 45-year-old Darren Stevens was the main highlight in Kent’s innings. The senior lad went on to score 190 from 145 deliveries rescuing his team, which was struggling for 128/8 at one stage.

Stevens formed a 166-run partnership for the 9th wicket with tailender Miguel Cummins, who contributed with just 1 run. It became the highest first-class partnerships in which one player scored more than 90% of the runs.

Stevens smashed 15 fours and as many sixes to score 150 runs by just boundaries out of his total 190 runs knock.

In reply, Glamorgan have made 55/2 in 19.4 overs before the wet outfield stopped play. Stevens, who shined with the bat, proved his mettle in the bowling as well. The all-rounder dismissed Australian batting sensation Marnus Labuschagne for just 11 runs.
