210 total views, 59 views today Jamaica Tallawahs recorded their first 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory at the fifth attempt after restricting Barbados Tridents to 140/9 and surviving a mid-innings wobble to get home with four wickets in hand thanks to Chadwick Walton’s unbeaten 51. In conditions very different to those that saw almost 500 runs in the record breaker last time out at Sabina Park, a pitch offering turn and, most importantly, bounce kept batsmen honest and spinners interested throughout. Tridents openers Alex Hales and Johnson Charles both fell…

Rahkeem Cornwall continued his fine start to the season as he and Andre Fletcher did the bulk of the work to send the Zouks powering past the Tallawahs’ 170/5 with five wickets and 20 balls to spare. But the sight of Russell being taken from the field on a stretcher having been struck on…

While Jamaica Tallawahs had been unable to defend 241/4 here 24 hours earlier, 186/2 proved enough for the Tridents to run out 18-run winners. After the previous day’s heroics, the Patriots would have been confident of another victory but they were immediately placed on the back foot in their run-chase by Tridents skipper Jason Holder. He…

This thumping 47-run victory means that last year’s runners-up have, like the team that beat them to the 2018 title Trinbago Knight Riders, gone three from three during the first home stint of their season. For much of the Warriors innings, though, such a result…

Very different yet equally impressive half-centuries from the explosive Lendl Simmons and ice-cool Denesh Ramdin ensured a mid-range target never really posed much of a threat. Simmons set the tone with a six straight back over Thisara Perera’s head from just the second ball of the innings, with Sunil…

The Tallawahs needed 99 from 42 when Russell came to the crease, but…

Having restricted the Patriots to 153/8, thanks largely to the efforts of spin twins Shadab Khan (2/20) and Chris Green (1/18), the Warriors made light work of the chase after getting the perfect platform from openers Brandon King and Chandrapaul Hemraj before…

The Warriors had struggled to 98/6 in the 16th over, their momentum seemingly checked by an untimely wicket every time they looked to be getting back on track before the two all-rounders got to work and changed the whole mood of the innings. Green then added two…
