Southern Vipers crowned first Super League champions

Southern Vipers were crowned the first Kia Super League champions after beating Western Storm in a tense Final in Chelmsford.

The Vipers, a consortium of several southern cricketing organisations led by Hampshire - and one of three new teams formed for the KSL - had secured the first place in the Final by finishing top of the qualifying table, while the Storm had to earn the right to play them by coming through a semi final against Loughborough Lightning.


Vipers one win away from being crowned Super League champions

Charlotte Edwards and her Southern Vipers are one win away from being crowned the first champions of the Kia Super League. The Vipers beat Loughborough Lightning by 59 runs in front of another four-figure crowd at the Ageas Bowl today to secure top spot in the final table, fired by a fine all-round performance by New Zealand captain Suzie Bates.

That means they go straight through to the title-deciding match at Finals Day in Chelmsford next Sunday (August 21). 


Sangakkara praises Tallawahs spirit after CPL victory

The Jamaica Tallawahs have won the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) for a second time and speaking after their brilliant all round display at Warner Park Kumar Sangakkara explained what a second CPL title meant to him.

“It is absolutely fantastic. I think it is just a vindication of how the team has played, unbelievably well led by the captain Chris Gayle. A lot of people look at Chris from the outside and think that he is all casual and happy go lucky but he is a man with a lot of determination to win and when you are close and playing in the same side you see that passion.”


Brilliant Jamaica Tallawahs win second Caribbean Premier League title, crush Guyana in Final

A brilliant bowling performance from the Jamaica Tallawahs saw them dismiss the Amazon Warriors for 93 in the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) final to secure their second title, the first team to do so. The Amazon Warriors lost their wickets with alarming regularity as they fluffed their lines on the tournament’s biggest night.

The Tallawahs finished behind the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the group stage and lost to them in the first play-off game, but in the final the Tallawahs did not give them a sniff in a fantastic all-round display that saw them win by nine wickets with 43 balls to spare. They did so thanks to a career best bowling performance from Imad Wasim and yet another Chris Gayle half century – his 78th score of fifty or more in T20 cricket.

The fastest ever Caribbean Premier League (CPL) century by Andre Russell helped the Jamaica Tallawahs defeat the Trinbago Knight Riders in Warner Park to secure a place in Sunday’s final.

Russell came to the crease with his team in real trouble with four wickets down with just 67 runs on the board. His 42-ball hundred meant that his side recovered to 195-7, a total that was always going to be too much for the Knight Riders to chase even after it was reduced by rain.
