Pooran guides Amazon Warriors to the perfect ten

Chandrapaul Hemraj's three wickets helped set the ball rolling and the chase of 144 was comfortable

Scorecard summary
Trinbago Knight Riders143/5(20 overs)
Guyana Amazon Warriors144/3(18.4 overs)
Ali Khan1/27(3.4)

That was the chase of a very in-form team. It could have got tight around the rain break, but Malik and Pooran have finished it off expertly, with Pooran playing a superb innings.

And it all means this is the line-up for the next two matches:

Guyana v Barbados Tridents in the first Qualifier

Patriots v TKR in first eliminator

Will this be the year that Guyana break their CPL duck? They are certainly played some excellent cricket at the moment, but how will they handle the pressure of the final stages?

We'll be back to bring you all the action from the qualifiers but, for now, from Gnasher and Peter it's goodbye and thanks for joining us

Ali Khan to Pooran, FOUR runs

and there's the win! Short of a length outside off, flayed over backward point and Guyana have gone 10/10 in the group stage

18.3

Ali Khan to Pooran, FOUR runs

what a shot! It wasn't far off the yorker, but Pooran has drilled a lofted drive straight down the ground to reach a brilliant fifty

full at off stump, driven to long-off

full at leg stump, Pooran misses his swing and it takes the pad, rebounding to short third man...Pooran would have been out with a hit

Jordan to Pooran, 1 run

gets the yorker in but it's driven down the ground to long-off

17.4
6
Jordan to Pooran, SIX runs

just has enough to clear the rope! A length ball, Pooran flicks it high into the air and it carries over deep midwicket. He's some player

17.3
Jordan to Pooran, no run

a yorker outside off, Pooran plays over the top of it

17.2
1
Jordan to Malik, 1 run

short again, straighter this time, pulled to deep square leg

17.1
4
Jordan to Malik, FOUR runs

finds the gap! It's a short-of-a-length slower ball, Malik picks it up cleanly and swings it between deep midwicket and deep square

Just 23 needed off three now to complete 10 out of 10. Can Chris Jordan pull it out of the bag?

James Neesham4-0-35-1

And that feels like the over that has decided the match

16.6
4
Neesham to Pooran, FOUR runs

hammered! That's a cracker of a shot, short of a length outside off, he stands tall and drives it through the covers wide of long-off. That was very classy

16.6
1w
Neesham to Pooran, 1 wide

a slower-ball bouncer which is far too short, loops over Pooran's head so that's another extra ball in the over

16.5
1
Neesham to Malik, 1 run

moves outside leg and Neesham follows him, shoveled off the pads to deep midwicket

16.4
1
Neesham to Pooran, 1 run

another slower ball, length outside off, driven into point

16.3
Neesham to Pooran, no run

a slower ball, wide outside off, left alone hoping for the wide call but gets away with it

16.2
4
Neesham to Pooran, FOUR runs

a low full toss this time, outside off, and it's square driven behind point...more problems with the ball for Neesham

That eases the pressure. Might need a new ball

16.1
6
Neesham to Pooran, SIX runs

makes the most of it by heaving a length delivery into the stands over deep midwicket

Free hit

Neesham to Malik, (no ball) 1 run

oops, that's a big full toss, angled down to third man and called no ball for height
