Munro powers TKR back to top as Amazon Warriors fizzle

Munro, already with four half-centuries in the tournament, hammered 10 fours and four sixes.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Opener, Colin Munro, played superbly but fell just short of a hundred as Trinbago Knight Riders crushed Guyana Amazon Warriors by 67 runs, to return to the top of the Caribbean Premier League standings here Wednesday night.

Sent in at Queen’s Park Oval, the hosts rallied to 170 for seven off their 20 overs with the left-handed Munro stroking 90 off 56 balls and Denesh Ramdin getting a measured 39.

Though seemingly short of a competitive total, TKR then made light work of Amazon Warriors, bundling them out for a paltry 103 in the 18th over, to post their sixth win in eight outings this season.

Roshon Primus top-scored with 36 not out batting at number eight while Jason Mohammed gathered 26 but Amazon Warriors never recovered from the damage of being 48 for six in the 10th over.

TKR now have 12 points with two games left and will be heavy favourites for automatic qualification for the September 16 final at home.

The defeat was the third in eight games for Amazon Warriors who lie third on 10 points with two games remaining.
