9.25pm Guyana started poorly, but Hetmyer came out and made batting look ridiculously easy. His counter-attack ensured St Kitts bowlers couldn't settle into any kind of rhythm. It didn't help that their fielding was lackluster as well. Their best bowler on the night: Sandeep Lamichhane, who struck with his first ball on CPL debut. But they lacked the consistency and bite on a surface where the ball skidded on in the second innings largely because of dew.

That's that for tonight from the CPL. Hope to have your company tomorrow when Jamaica Tallawahs open their campaign against Trinbago Knight Riders, the defending champs. That game will come to you from Queen's Park Oval. Do stick around for Peter Della Penna's match bulletin that should be up shortly.

Shimron Hetmyer is the Player of the Match for his 45-ball 79 not out.

Joseph to Hetmyer, FOUR runs

full toss, he backs away and belts this back past the bowler to the straight boundary. What an emphatic way to finish. This has been a sparkling knock from Shimron Hetmyer. You will hear a lot of this guy for many years to come. Class batsman, class strokes and a temperament to die for. The consistency is slowly coming into his game and he's set to finally emerge from the shadows of his glorious Under-19 past. This has been a comprehensive victory for Guyana Amazon Warriors under new captain Shoaib Malik.

Joseph to Hetmyer, (no ball)

looks to hoick over midwicket, squeezes it off a thick inside edge to midwicket. It's a frontfoot no-ball, so a free-hit to boot. Big no-ball, replays confirm.

Cutting to Hetmyer, FOUR runs

slapped to the cover boundary. All class, this guy. Unstoppable. Too much width, firm base was the key as he made room and belted that away

15.4
Cutting to Hetmyer, no run

dabs to point and scampers a run nearly, sent his partner back in the end. A direct hit at the bowler's end and Green was gone

Cutting to Hetmyer, SIX runs

muscles this pull, how flat has he hit this? Flat, hard and over the ropes at deep midwicket. This is a slower length ball and he was ready to pull. Stunning

Cutting to Hetmyer, FOUR runs

too much width, he uses the pace to steer this beautifully to the point boundary. Deep cover went around and put in a dive, but couldn't beat the timing or placement. Simply magnificent
