In response, Guyana Warriors suffered an early setback after Chadwick Walton (4), Luke Ronchi (0), Shimron Hetmyer (11) failed to trouble the scores, reducing Warriors to 21/3 in the fourth over. The Warriors failed to build meaningful partnerships and succumbed to the mounting run-rate (103/10) in the 18th over. All-rounder Roshon Primus top-scored with an unbeaten 36 off 30 balls.
The dominant win saw Trinbago Knight Riders top the points table with 12 points (+1.310). Knight Riders have won six and lost two out of their eight matches and are favourites to finish on the top with two league-stage matches remaining in their fixture. The Guyana Amazon Warriors sit on the third position behind Trinbago and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots (11 points).
