The Guyana Amazon Warriors predictably maintained their unbeaten streak, notching their 11th win on the trot in a comfortable 30-run victory over the Barbados Tridents on Sunday to book their place in the final of the Hero Caribbean Premier League.
Led by an outstanding unbeaten century from opener Brandon Knight, the Warriors posted a formidable 218 for three off their 20 overs at the National Stadium in Providence.
Despite an encouraging start, the Tridents frequently lost wickets which helped to derail their chase and they eventually ended on 188 for eight in their allotted 20 overs.
The 24-year-old King lit up the afternoon sky with a breathtaking shot selection during his knock of 132, the highest individual score in CPL history.
Firstly, he shared an opening stand of 73 in nine overs with Chandrapaul Hemraj which served as a launchpad for the rest of the innings.
King showed his intentions early on, smashing 18 runs off Jason Holder’s second over after a relatively slow start for the Warriors.
