Stars season on brink of disaster
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC):
St Lucia Stars' already dreadful season lurched towards complete disaster when they crashed to their seventh defeat of the Caribbean Premier League, going down by seven wickets to Guyana Amazon Warriors here on Tuesday night.
In perhaps their worst display of a wretched campaign, they were restricted to a paltry 100 for seven off their 20 overs, with Jesse Ryder top-scoring with 29.
Exciting Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan claimed two for 19, while seamer Rayad Emrit finished with two for 26.
In reply, Amazon Warriors lost a wicket off their first ball of the innings but recovered to easily stroll to their target in the 15th over.
Jason Mohammed sustained his decent form with an unbeaten 42, while Pakistan's Sohail Tanvir hit 38 to secure Amazon Warriors an all-important third win of the season, allowing them to leapfrog Barbados Tridents into fourth place on six points.
Stars, meanwhile, continued bottom of the standings with a single point - from a no-result - in their eight outings.
