Great performance from Guyana Amazon Warriors. Chasing an above-par score, Jamaica Tallawahs never got going.
Tallawahs looked in a very good position at 63 for 1 in the ninth over before Smith disrupted the chase with his medium pace.
Haider Ali tried to heave Smith over the leg side but could only top edge a swirler taken by Shoaib Malik tracking back from short third man. Chandrapaul Hemraj then took a tremendous low catch at short extra cover off a scorching drive from Kirk McKenzie next ball to remove both set batters following a 41-run stand.
After losing Lewis in the powerplay, McKenzie and Haider Ali stitched a 41-run stand for the second wicket. But they hardly threatened to up the ante. Odean Smith accounted for both the set batsmen off successive deliveries. Gudakesh Motie too troubled the JT batsmen with spin and bounce.
Smith delivered the killer blow with a wicket-maiden (15th over) which included the prized scalp of the Andre Russell. Smith and Motie picked three wickets apiece and Naveen-ul-Haq applied the finishing touches with two wickets towards the end.
Earlier, on the back of Pooran's explosive half-ton, GAW posted 169 on the board. Guyana improve their NRR significantly and move to the second spot. Four teams are tied on ten points.
Guyana Amazon Warriors 169 for 6 (Pooran 75, Russell 2-35) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 123 all out (Snith 3-21, Motie 3-25) by 46 runs.
