Kingston, Jamaica: Aug 4, 2014

Chris Gayle’s Jamaica Tallawahs beat Barbados Tridents by 19 runs to maintain their second position at the point’s table of this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel are currently leading the table with 12 points. Tallawahs also have 12 points but a better net run rate kept the Red Steel’s ahead.

In front of a noisy home crowd, Tallawahs faced Kieron Pollard’s Barbados Tridents on sunday. It was a crucial match for the away team and their captain Pollard won the toss and decided to chase.  Tallawahs’s openers Gayle (39) and Chadwick Walton (25) gave the team a steady start. In the sixth over, when the home team lost the wicket of Walton, overseas player Owais Shah (42) came to the middle.

Gayle and Shah batted sensibly. They reached 100 in just 14.2 overs. But afterwards Tallawahs lost the plot the managed to score only 47 runs in the remaining 38 balls. Apart from the first three batsmen, no one reached in the double figures. For Tridents, veteran Ravi Rampaul was the most successful bowler. He took four crucial wickets and bowled excellently in the depth overs. Apart from him, Rayad Emrit took three wickets.

Chasing 148 the Tridents had the worst possible start. They lost their in-form opener Dwayne Smith in the first over. But before getting out Smith achieved an unique record. His boundary off David Bernard made him the first player to hit 100 fours in T20 cricket this year.  The other opener Shane Dowrich and Sri Lankan all-rounder Jeevan Mendis who was sent at number three, also got out cheaply. Suddenly the Tridents were 27 for three in the seventh over. From there Shoaib Malik fought a lone battle.

Malik played an excellent unbeaten innings of 81 of just 42 balls but unable to win the match for his side. For the Barbodos side, he was the only batsman who reached double figures. Jerome Taylor of Tallawahs was declared as the man of the match for his economical figures of two for 11 in four overs.

Though the Tridents are certain of being involved in the knockout stages of this year’s CPL, but it is looking increasingly likely that they will have to win both knock out games to make the final as this defeat left them in fourth place. For the Tallawahs, automatic qualification for the final remains a realistic target.

Brief scores:

Jamaica Tallawahs 147 for eight in 20 overs (Chris Gayle 39, Chadwick Walton 25, Owais Shah 42 ; Ravi Rampaul four for 18, Rayad Emrit three for 39) beat Barbados Tridents 119 in 14.5 overs (Shoaib Malik 81 ; Jerome Taylor two for 11, David barnerd two for 20) by 19 runs.
