Warriors dominated the game throughout and registered their first win! We have another double header coming our way tomorrow. That's all from me, Pradeep Somashekar and Prashanth Satish then. Do tune into Sportskeeda tomorrow for the rest of the matches. Ciao!
Guyana Amazon Warriors beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by 3 wickets!

Keemo Paul has been adjudged the man of the match for his excellent bowling picking up 4 wickets to dent the Patriots innings!

A commanding win for Guyana Amazon Warriors! What a great show put up by Hetmyer in this game, he's in prime form and made full use of that, gave no chance to Patriots bowlers to make a come back into the game. It was a one-sided contest ever since Lynn and Lewis didn't make huge impact and it was all Shimron Hetmyer 71(44) (3 SIX'es and 8 boundaries) show during the run chase. Brandon King looked promising hitting 2 boundaries to show the intent with the chase but he's gone too soon, Chandrapaul Hemraj and Shimron Hetmyer stitched a partnership that meant there was no turning back for the Warriors! Hemraj soon perished for some dreadful running between the wickets. Ross Taylor didn't stay long at the crease and he perished for a total mix-up. Warriors lost a flurry of wickets at the end, Patriots captain Rayad Emrit 3/31 made sure it's going to be an easy walk in the park and he picked up 3 wickets as he sent Nicholas Pooran and Keemo Paul for golden duck and was on a hat trick if the match had lasted another over, who knows! 

As for Patriots they desperately need Lynn and Lewis to fire to make any impact in the upcoming matches as their batting heavily depends on them and the middle order will just tag along!

In the end a rather comfortable victory for Warriors and they register their first win of the tournament and have made a statement that they are not the team to take lightly! 
16.6 Dominic Drakes to Romario Shepherd, FOUR! Full and in the slot and Romario drives that back past the bowler to complete the GAW win. A pretty convincing one at the end and they will be happy to notch up their first points in the league!
16.6 Dominic Drakes to Romario Shepherd, WIDE! Above head height again from Drakes, SCORES LEVEL!
16.6 Dominic Drakes to Romario Shepherd, WIDE! Above the batsman's head and down leg side as well. Two to get now!
16.5 Dominic Drakes to Romario Shepherd, full-length delivery on the stumps and defended out by Romario this time.
16.4 Dominic Drakes to Chris Green, back of a length delivery played to point and they set off for a quick single. Three to win now and three wickets in hand!
16.3 Dominic Drakes to Chris Green, BOUNCER! Short delivery and a very good one that as it strikes Green on the body.
It's Hetmyer now, what is going on? He's hold out at long off fielder! In walks Romario Shepherd!
16.2 Dominic Drakes to Shimron Hetmyer, OUT! Looking to finish the game but Hetmyer holes out to long-on in the attempt. End of an outstanding innings from him!
16.1 Dominic Drakes to Shimron Hetmyer, FOUR! No problems on this end though as Hetmyer continues his good work as he lofts this full toss over the bowler's head for yet another boundary.
Emrit picks up couple of wickets in that over and has created a scare in the Warriors dug out! He'll be on a hat-trick when he comes back to bowl the next over! Another first ball duck, Keemo Paul goes! Is there a twist in the tale? or Is it too late? In walks Chris Green! GAW are 120/6 after 16 overs!
15.6 Rayad Emrit to Keemo Paul, OUT! Back of a length delivery wraps Paul on the pads and he is adjudged LBW. Is there a twist in this one now? Emrit sparking the lightest of hopes for the Patriots! 
Emrit credits himself with another wicket for some excellent discipline with the ball sends Rutherford back to the dug out! In walks Keemo Paul!
15.5 Rayad Emrit to Sherfane Rutherford, OUT! Length ball hurried Rutherford who was caught on his crease and the timber is shattered! Too little too late for STKNP!
15.4 Rayad Emrit to Sherfane Rutherford, FOUR! Short delivery and Rutherford this time pulls it over mid-on for collecting his first boundary.
15.3 Rayad Emrit to Shimron Hetmyer, back of a length delivery worked away off his hips for a single.
15.2 Rayad Emrit to Shimron Hetmyer, FOUR! Short and Hetmyer gets into terrific positions and pulls that one towards mid-wicket for another boundary.
15.1 Rayad Emrit to Sherfane Rutherford, back of a length delivery outside the off-stump guided to third man for a single.
Absolutely no problem for Hetmyer on the other end, he clubbed one to hammer Cottrell for a SIX in that over, he's marching on! GAW are 110/4 after 15 overs! They just need 18 runs in 30 balls!
