The Caribbean Premier League is moving on to Florida in the coming days and the Jamaica Tallawahs have arrived in the USA sitting at the top of the league table and with a place in the knockout stages already assured. Tallawahs’ Coach Paul Nixon has been delighted with his Hero CPL so far and is full of praise for the improvements the tournament has made since his last stint with the Jamaican franchise in 2013.
“I was here in the inaugural season of the Hero CPL and seeing the difference now, with the world class professionals that are here is wonderful. It is incredible how much the competition has grown in standards and professionalism.
The St Lucia Zouks have made it two Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) wins in two at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium thanks to the bowling of Sammy himself and runs from Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher. The win takes them to six points and makes qualification for the knockout stages for the first time in their history a real possibility for the St Lucian side.
Chasing just 138 to win Charles and Fletcher got the home side off to the best possible start. In the first 10 overs the openers managed 80 runs without losing a wicket. It was actually a quiet start until the ninth over that was delivered by Imran Khan. That one cost 17 runs as Johnson Charles smashed two sixes.
Sussex Sharks have suffered a heavy six-wicket defeat at the hands of Surrey in the NatWest T20 Blast cricket tournament with Bangladesh medium pacer Mustafizur Rahman remaining wicketless. The 20-year-old seamer gave away an uncharacteristic 31 runs from 3.2 overs as Surrey chased down the total of 153/6 posted by Sussex at Kennington Oval, reported bdnews24.com on Saturday.
At least 500 Bangladeshis turned up among a capacity crowd of about 24,500 to cheer youngster Mustafizur but they left disappointed.
After left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman served up a superb bowling spell to steer Sussex Sharks to victory over Essex Eagle on his county cricket debut, captain Luke Wright said the Bangladesh youngster was worth the wait.
The 20-year-old put his guile on display to return with 4/23 as Sussex, who had been languishing in the bottom half of the South Group, earned a 24-run win at Chelmsford in the NatWest T20 Blast on Thursday.
Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman announced his English county debut in style, helping Sussex Sharks earn a 24-run win over Essex Eagles in a NatWest T20 Blast game here. The wily 20-year-old seamer grabbed four wickets giving away 23 runs from four overs at Chelmsford, reported bdnews24.com on Friday.
Asked to bat first, Sussex batsmen rallied to post an imposing 200/6 at the country ground on Thursday.
With just one week to go until the start of the Kia Super League, twelve of the competition’s star players were in Manchester last night to celebrate the launch of the inaugural tournament.
A mixture of the six team captains – Amy Satterthwaite (Lancashire Thunder), Georgia Elwiss (Loughborough Lightning), Charlotte Edwards (Southern Vipers), Natalie Sciver (Surrey Stars), Heather Knight (Western Storm) and Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire Diamonds) – and overseas signings, including Suzie Bates, Marizanne Kapp, Rachel Priest and Sophie Devine, mingled with guests as the cricketing world came together to look forward to the start of the historic competition next weekend.
On the night that the Beauséjour Stadium was renamed in honour of Daren Sammy, the Zouks captain celebrated with a match winning half-century against the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Sammy recorded his highest CPL score as the Zouks secured a victory that keeps them in the tournament.
The same is not the case for the Patriots who can no longer advance to the knockout stages having recorded just one win in the eight matches they have played so far. They ended up 35 runs short of their victory target meaning they are now playing for pride in their remaining fixtures.
The Jamaica Tallawahs have secured a place in the knockout stages of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with a win over the Barbados Tridents at Sabina Park. The Tallawahs have won all four of their home games as they became the first team to gain a place at finals week in St Kitts & Nevis.
A brilliant innings from Chadwick Walton and runs from Kumar Sangakkara and Rovman Powell allowed the Tallawahs to post their highest total of Hero CPL 2016 in a game that was shorted as a result of a rain storm.
