After a delayed start, the Knight Riders were put into bat but struggled to form significant partnerships and could only post 105 from their 20 overs thanks to a late unbeaten 25 off 25 from Hayley Jensen.

Cherry-Ann Fraser was the pick of the Warriors’ bowlers taking 3/21 from her four overs while Shamilia Connell was economical taking 1/10 from hers.

The Warriors were frustrated by the rain as Rashada Williams and Chamari Athapathtu came out to chase and, after two overs, the rain set in and the match was abandoned with the Warriors 13/0.

This result means the points are shared between the two teams so the Trinbago Knight Riders, who defeated the Barbados Royals yesterday, now sit on three points and the Warriors, who have a game against the Royals in hand, have just one.

The final group game between the Barbados Royals and The Guyana Amazon Warriors will take place on Saturday as the teams seek to qualify for Sunday’s final. (CPL)
