The 2018 Caribbean Premier League cricket season is coming to what promises to be a dramatic conclusion, as the Guyana Amazon Warriors scored a dramatic, next-to-last-ball victory over the Trinbago Knight Riders in the first playoff qualifier, as CricInfo reported. The win moves the Amazon Warriors into the championship final set for Sunday. But first, the Knight Riders get a second chance when they face the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the second qualifier match, a T20 showdown that will live stream from Trinidad and Tobago.
Pakistan international Sohail Tanvir slugged a six on the fifth ball of the final over, lifting Guyana over Trinbago by two wickets, and chasing down a most total of 122, per CricInfo. The win put the second-place Amazon Warriors automatically into Sunday’s final, where they await the winner of Friday’s clash between the Knight Riders, who topped the 2018 CPL table with seven wins and 14 points, and the Patriots.
Led by West Indies legend Chris Gayle, St. Kitts and Nevis were rescued by an even half-century out of the number four slot by New Zealand’s Anton Devchich, as the ICC reported. The team overcame a 63-ball 103 by Devcich’s fellow Kiwi, Glenn Phillips, that played the lead role in posting 191 for the Jamaica Tallawahs. But the efficient century was not enough for Jamaica to advance.

“We weren’t happy with our bowling, and we would have liked to have conceded less than 190-plus,” Gayle told the ICC site. “But we knew it was a good wicket to bat on. We didn’t get the start that we wanted. We knew the conditions will favor the batting side.”
In the rematch between the 2018 CPL’s top two teams, the Patriots will need a big outing from Gayle, who managed only 26 in the first playoff match against Trinbago, as CricInfo recorded.
