Scintillating Shakib proves his might again

Popular News

Bangladesh T20 skipper Shakib Al Hasan bagged his successive man of the match awards in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League after demonstrating another brilliant all-round performance for his side Guyana Amazon Warriors against table-toppers Barbados Royals in Guyana on Monday.

Shakib claimed 1-12 in 2.3 overs while Romario Shepherd (3-14), Keemo Paul (2-9) and Odean Smith (2-42) also bowled superbly as Guyana dismissed Barbados for 125 runs in 17.3 overs after they opted to bowl first.

The left-handed batsman then struck 53 off 30 balls (his first fifty in the ongoing tournament) that also included five fours and three sixes which helped his side reach 126-6 in 14.3 overs to complete a five-wicket win in their last league match.

The win also confirmed Guyana’s play-off berth as they finished second in the points table with 11 points. Despite the defeat, Barbados finished the league stage at the top with 16 points while Saint Lucia Kings and Jamaica Tallawahs are the other two qualifying teams.

Guyana will face the same opponent Barbados in the Qualifier 1 match today at the same venue.
