There were a lot of people asking their questions at the toss when Shimron Hetmyer decided to field first.

It means Amazon Warriors don’t even get to the final this year. Instead, it will be the Tallawahs and Royals going for the title for two nights.

“The only thing is probably taking our chances. Taking your chances contribute to winning. That really summed it up for me today. If we had to do it all over again, I would have done the same thing (bowl first) really. The guys did well upfront. They put the ball in the correct areas and we got two early wickets as well. It’s all about taking the chances when we had them,” Hetmyer said after the second Qualifier.

Guyana Amazon Warriors have made it to the knockouts of all ten editions of the CPL so far but have never won the title.
