9.07pm Celebrations all around! Hetmyer is chuffed, and why wouldn't he be? This was stunning. A scorching assault that came out of nowhere and KO'd TKR. Did we just happen to see the most destructive and breathtaking chase in CPL history? It was scorching hitting, and perhaps more crucially, came out of nowhere, stunning TKR. Two twenty-year olds, under pressure, playing the innings of their lives. It all began in the tenth over of the chase, and thereafter, they plundered 79 runs in four overs. Wow, just wow. Hard to top that effort. Guyana finish second and earn themselves two shots at making the final.
"It was a fantastic knock for me," says Shimron Hetmyer, one of the heroes. "He knew exactly what to do and he came to rescue us. At that time, I said to myself, for us to get second place, we'll have to push on from here, so we saw who could take it as deep as possible. It's a fantastic feeling. This is my first full season with Warriors, look forward to bring the trophy home. It was a fantastic crowd, thanks for the support."
Rutherford is the Man of the Match for his breathtaking six-hitting. "It's a good feeling. Coming into the game, I was under a bit of pressure. I was watching the ball and choosing my bowlers. I got some confidence after hitting a six and told myself, 'tonight is my night'. (Shimron) told me to back myself."
Johnathan Bovel: "Best match of the CPL 2018 edition so far!"
Aj : "2 local boys under 22 going crazy against the best team in the league, amazing "
Alex97: "The warrior spirit is alive and on fire!"
Anon06: "I find that this CPL has had some of the most remarkable blitzes in all T20 cricket. Lil B's 94, DJ Bravo's two innings of 5 sixes, Pollard on multiple occasions, Ricky's 41, Cornwall, this innings by Rutherford, David Miller, Russell's and Hetmyer's tons, and more..."
That's all we have tonight. We will be back on September 11 with a repeat of tonight's encounter. Can these two top tonight's breathtaking finish when they meet in Qualifier 1? Definitely something to look forward to. Tune in then. For now, it's goodbye!
PDP: "TKR paying for Bravo's miscalculation of overs in light of Guyana's NRR calculation to overtake Tallawahs. No way you can leave three overs between Pierre and Fawad left unbowled. Had to bowl out Pierre in the 7th and use Fawad's overs by the 11th as well. Especially when Fawad is the CPL's leading wicket-taker."
Twenty-two off that over. Just nine needed now.
Fifty-run stand off 15 deliveries
Seventeen off that one; 57 off the last three.
