Motie defends 6 runs in last-over thriller against Royals – News Room Guyana
A magical last over from spinner Gudakesh Motie helped Guyana Amazon Warriors clinch a three-run win against Barbados Royals in match 23 of the 2023 Republic Bank Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
A 60-run partnership between Laurie Evans and Alick Athanaze was eventually bought to a close when Odean Smith got Evans to commit to a shot too early and Athanaze himself was to follow 12 balls later.
Hope joined Ayub and the duo took Warriors to 41-1 after six overs. Hope was dropped on 15 by Obed McCoy off the bowling of Kyle Mayers, who bowled four overs on the trot for 24 runs.
One over later, Khan was caught for a four-ball duck, as Warriors were reduced to 109-3 in 12.5 overs. Hope and Shimron Hetmyer then took Qais Ahmad for 20 runs in one over, and the Barbadian Hope reached his fifty, his second in as many matches, in 39 balls.
