From Warriors side Tanvir and Zampa was pick off the bowler, Tanvir took 3 wickets and Zampa also took 3 wickets and Tanvir prooved that why Warriors picked him first in the Auction.

Chase target of 165, DR Smith are on fire and it looks like he wants to finish match early he scored quick fire 62 runs in just 36 balls by hittng 5 sixes and 3 fours and Guptil also played 22 runs inning.

But it was the medium pace of Krishmar Santokie that did for Smith who tried to drive him over the covers only to hit it straight to a fielder. It was Santokie’s 50th Hero CPL wicket, the most by any bowler.

After that, Chris Lynn was run out for six by du Plessis. At this point, the squeeze was on and it took a long time for Anthony Bramble and Mohammad to get themselves set, but eventually they began to score freely and they reached the victory target but the Amazon Warriors were made to work for it.

Mohammad was there at the end and he was well supported by Tanvir.
