The Guyana Amazon Warriors survived a middle-order batting collapse to earn a narrow three-wicket over the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in Game 4 of the 2020 Caribbean Premier League T20.

Shimron Hetmyer's 71 off 44 balls put the Amazon Warriors in control before Rayad Emrit (3/31) triggered the collapse.

However, Romario Shepherd (4 not out) and captain Chris Green (1 not out) saw the 2019 finalists across the line.

Earlier, Keemo Paul took 4/19 to reduce the Patriots to 127/8 in their 20 overs, with only Evin Lewis (30) and Ben Dunk (29) offering resistance.

Summarized scores:  ST Kitts and Nevis Patriots 127/8 in 20 overs (Lewis 30, Dunk 29, Emrit 17;  Paul 4/19, Tahir 2/18) vs Guyana Amazon Warriors 131/7 Hetmyer 71, Hemraj 19; Emrit 3/31, Cottrell 1/24). Amazon Warriors win by three wickets
