Calm Williams takes Tallawahs up to second in thrilling finish
Kesrick Williams defeated eight runs off the final over to help Jamaica Tallawahs streach their winning streak to four games with a two run victory over Guyana Amazon Warriors in a low scoring thriller at Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday. Tallawaha bat first and managed only 128 out of given overs, but somehow Williams managed to snatch victory from them in the last closing minutes of the game.
Azam who was the first one to depart, ending the third wicket stand on 49, and Primus, facing the final ball with three to win. Steven Jacobs took out the in-form Andre McCarthy and skipper Kumar Sangakkara in his successive overs to reduce the Tallawahs to 63 for 3 at the end of 12 overs. Phillips took on Rayad Emrit in the 15th over, slamming the pacer for a six and boundary but partner Rovman Powell, wasn’t as lucky.
Phillips fell in the penultimate ovet the team score on 120. They could only manage eight more, in as many deliveries left, to set up a 129 run target for the hosts that eventually proved just enough.
