A magical career best spell of 4-29 from Gudakesh Motie helped Guyana Amazon Warriors to their first win of the 2023 CPL with a 65-run win against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

They will be in action again tomorrow, Sunday, August 27 against Jamaica Tallawahs from 10:00h Eastern Caribbean time, at Warner Park, St Kitts.

According to Imran Tahir, playing positive cricket and going hard with the bat will be way to success this season for the Warriors.

“Look, I said it from the start, that I play very positive cricket. We have the team, everyone is able to do that, we have four all-rounders, they can come in any time once we have a good start. If we have a good start, we want to go as hard as we can, that’s the plan going forward,” Tahir said after the Warriors win over Patriots.

The 44-year-old Tahir added: “There will be a day where we will lose wickets, but we got Hetmyer and Hope. They know their roles, and the way they batted good (against Patriots) and that was really good to see.”

Tahir was really proud of his first win as full-time captain of the Warriors, and he was delighted with Gudakesh Motie’s Player of the Match effort of 4-29.

“Feel really proud, first game as Captain, and I think the boys did fantastic job. Our batters and whatever the plan we had and how we have been practising, they executed really well today, so I am really happy for my boys.

“Our (Motie and myself) overs are very crucial in the middle. We have four all-rounders, and we can always bring them in whenever we can, so we have that luxury. He (Motie) bowled really well, and that is why we pick him, he has been with us for a few years, so yea I hope he carry on, he bowled really well in these conditions,” Tahir said.

Meanwhile, Motie was happy to bowl alongside the veteran Tahir.

“Hitting the right areas. It was a good pitch, and once you hit the right areas, you will get success. I enjoy bowling alongside him. He has a lot of experience, and I enjoy it,” Motie said after his career-best figures in CPL.

He also thanked the Guyanese fans for their continued support. “Shout out to the fans them, thank you for the support.”
