The Saint Lucia Kings are off the bottom of the table in the Caribbean Premier League, earning their second win today at Warner Park in St Kitts and Nevis.
Roston Chase played a lone hand with the bat for the Kings on a challenging surface, before their bowlers combined to bully Guyana Amazon Warriors’ top order and take the chase beyond them even before the powerplay had ended.
Eventually, it was a massive fifty one-run win for Kings to move into fifth place on net run-rate.
Chase’s career-best 85 – the next highest scorer made 20 off 29 – at a strike rate of 170 was a blatant outlier in the game after Amazon Warriors had put Kings in at the toss.
St Lucia Kings 149 for 7 (Chase 85, Shepherd 3-21, Smith 3-22) beating Guyana Amazon Warriors all out for 98 (Pooran 41, Smith 31*, Royal 3-19, Williams 2-7, McCoy 2-19) by 51 runs.
