    Barbados Tridents [171/6] down Guyana Amazon Warriors [144/9] to win Caribbean Premier League 2019

    The Hero Caribbean Premier League’s player’s draft will take place on Wednesday 22 May 2019 at the Gfinity eSports Arena in London. The state-of-the-art production facility will allow CPL fans from around the globe to follow the action which will be hosted by a world-class panel of pundits.

    Full details of where the draft will be broadcast will be confirmed nearer the date of the event.

    Each of the teams will have the option to retain a maximum of six players. The players that they can potentially retain is as follows, although there is no obligation to retain any players from the 2018 squads.

    Three (3) West Indian players
    One (1) Overseas player
    The team’s Marquee Player from 2018
    The team’s ICC Americas Player from 2018

    As well as the maximum of six retentions teams are also allowed one “Right to Match” option in rounds 7-17. This means that if a team selects a player who is a national from another team’s franchise territory that team can match the offer and draft the player ahead of the team who selected them originally.

    The Marquee Players may be signed before the draft and will sit in the second spot on the draft list. In the past, players who were selected in this spot included the likes of Chris Lynn, Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik, Evin Lewis, AB de Villiers and Steve Smith.

    Each team can draft a maximum of five overseas players but only four of these players will be allowed in each starting XI. The ICC Americas player does not count in this overseas category.

    Speaking about the upcoming draft, Michael Hall, the CPL’s Tournament Operations Director said: “This year’s player draft promises to be even better than previous editions. We made the decision to stage the draft 2 months later than usual to ensure that all of our franchises have a clearer picture about the international commitments of the overseas players they may be eyeing up. We want to make sure that we provide teams and the fans with the best possible playing talent.”

    The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) have agreed to move the tournament window for the 2019 tournament to avoid a clash with the West Indies’ Test, ODI and T20 International series against India. These international matches have been moved back at the request of the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) which meant that the West Indies international players would otherwise no longer be available for the tournament.

    Hero CPL will now take place from 4 September to 12 October. The full schedule of matches will be released in due course with matches already confirmed for Barbados, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia and Trinidad & Tobago.

    Moving the tournament gives the best possible chance for all players to take part in the Caribbean Premier League and the series against India. Both Cricket West Indies and Hero CPL are firmly committed to making sure that players can take full part in both the CPL and international cricket and have been working very closely together to find this solution.

    The Jamaica Tallawahs have signed Chris Gayle as their Marquee Player for the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League season. The leading T20 batsman of all time, Gayle is the only player with more that 10,000 runs in the format. He is the leading CPL run scorer with 2111 runs and has scored three CPL hundreds, all of those for the Tallawahs.

    Gayle was with the Tallawahs from 2013 to 2016, winning the title with them twice in that time. Since then he has been with the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots where he has captained them to the playoffs in successive years, making the final in 2017.

    The Tallawahs will be playing five home games in Jamaica during the 2019 season giving the fans at Sabina Park the chance to see Gayle in action on his home ground. This year’s Hero CPL will take place between 4 September to 12 October.

    The rest of the Tallawahs squad will be decided at the Hero CPL Players Draft which takes place on 22 May.

    Jefferson Miller, COO of the Jamaica Tallawahs, said: “We are delighted to have Chris playing for his home team for the 2019 season. There is no bigger name in Twenty20 cricket, and we can’t wait for him to arrive and make the Jamaican fans proud. We are looking forward to Chris being a big part of our push for a third CPL title.”

    Trinbago Knight Riders announced today that they have signed Kieron Pollard as their Marquee Player for the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) which will be played from 4 September 4 to 12 October 2019. The Trinidadian all-rounder, who played for the Barbados Tridents from 2013 to 2017 and for St Lucia Stars in 2018, will be playing for his home franchise for the first time in his Hero CPL career in 2019.

    Making the announcement, Venky Mysore, Director of TKR said, “We are delighted to welcome Pollard back home and its great to continue our efforts to bring as many Trini boys home as possible. I can’t wait for the reaction of the fans when Pollard takes the field at our opening game on 4 September.”

    Pollard will be hoping to help TKR add to the three championships they have won in the last four tournaments in 2015, 2017 & 2018. Pollard has played in 474 T20 matches so brings a vast amount of experience to the Knight Riders squad, from CPL and from tournaments around the world.

    The rest of the Trinbago Knight Riders squad will be decided at the Hero CPL Players Draft, which takes place on 22 May 2019.

    RECORD NUMBER OF PLAYERS ENTER CPL 2019 DRAFT

    The final list of players who have made themselves available for the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League has been sent to teams ahead of the draft which will take place in London on 22 May 2019.

    The number of players that have put their names forward for the draft has increased yet again in 2019, as has the number of countries from which the overseas players are from. A record 536 players from 20 overseas countries and the West Indies are available to be picked by the six Hero CPL teams. Included in the list are some of the best T20 players in the world with the likes of Alex Hales, Rashid Khan, Shakib al Hasan, Jofra Archer and JP Duminy putting their names forward along with Caribbean stars such as Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope.

    Prior to the draft, each franchise will have the option to retain and/or acquire a maximum of six players, although there is no obligation to do so. The players they can potentially retain are as follows:

    Minimum of three (3) West Indian players, a maximum of four (4)
    Maximum of one (1) overseas player, reduced to none if four (4) West Indians retained
    A Marquee Player whether retained or acquired
    An ICC Americas Player, whether retained or acquired

    All retentions will be announced during the live broadcast of the player draft which will be broadcast on the Hero CPL social media channels from 2pm GMT on 22 May.

    Speaking about the player response to this year’s draft, Michael Hall, Hero CPL Tournament Operations Director, said: “The fact that so many players have registered for our draft is a testament to the stature of our league. Playing cricket in the Caribbean is something that all players look forward to, and the CPL combines that allure with a high standard of cricket. We expect that this year’s tournament will be no different.”

    The Barbados Tridents have a new ownership team in place who have taken over the running of the franchise with immediate effect.They have also announced that West Indies Test and ODI captain, Jason Holder, will be their Marquee Player for the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League season.

    The USA-based CMG Companies (CMG) leads a team of local and international investors in the acquisition of the cricket franchise in Barbados. CMG, through its affiliates, primarily owns and operates franchise restaurants, hotels, and real estate across America and is one of the largest owners of a major fast-food franchise. CMG is also no stranger to sports, with sponsorship deals with NBA teams including the Dallas Mavericks, several similar initiatives at the collegiate and grassroots level, investment in MASL’s Dallas Sidekicks, along with past ownership of CPL’s very own Jamaica Tallawahs.

    Manish Patel, Principal of CMG, says “Selling our ownership rights of the winning Jamaica Tallawahs held from 2014-2016 was the right move for us as a business, but we missed being involved in the Region and in CPL. When the chance to purchase the Tridents came along we were delighted, especially with the opportunity to bring good strong local partners onboard. We can’t wait to get started at enhancing the profile of this team on and off the field and to bringing a comprehensive sports entertainment package to Barbados. We will work very hard to make Barbadians proud of their team.”

    New co-owners and local entrepreneurs Kailash Pardasani of Promotech, and Terrol Cummins and Arvind Gopwani of Silver Technetium Capital Inc. (STCI) are excited about the opportunity for Barbadians to venture into sports entertainment in an era where the new format of cricket has generated renewed excitement in investment opportunities worldwide including India, Australia and the UK among others. Tridents Co-CEO Kailash Pardasani reveals that the investment by local partners is “an investment in Barbados and a vote of confidence in the resilience of its people and the resurgence of the country as a whole. Cricket has been an integral part of the fabric of our society and has uplifted and united families and entire communities. We are investing in that. We couldn’t ask for better investment partners and for a better time to place our money and efforts while continuing to be huge fans.”

    Pete Russell, COO of Hero CPL, said: “The issues that the Tridents have faced in recent months have been well documented and are being fully addressed as a priority. We have been working tirelessly to find a solution and we believe that this international-local investor collaboration is the ideal solution. This is a group of passionate cricket fans and astute business minds who have experience of successfully running a CPL franchise. The Tridents are in safe hands and the issues the franchise has faced are a thing of the past.”

    The arrival of an experienced and successful ownership team means that the Tridents will now enter the 2019 tournament on a solid financial footing and with a clear plan both on and off the field. Local investors in the Tridents are focused on renewing the connection between the franchise and the local community, through partnerships with the Barbadian business community and a lineup of fan-centric events and content.

    Alex Hales was a happy man after being picked up by the Barbados Tridents as first pick during the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League draft at the Gfinity eSports Arena in London.

    The Tridents wasted little time in using the very first pick of the draft to snare the big-hitting England batsman, who, speaking later during the draft, said he was thrilled to be heading back to an island he described as one of his favourite places to play cricket for what will be his first taste of the biggest party in sport.

    The St Lucia Stars are looking to make an impact after a couple of tough years and look to have done some good business Last year’s leading CPL wicket-taker Fawad Ahmed arrives from Trinbago Knight Riders as St Lucia Stars’ marquee player

    There will also be a real Sri Lankan flavour to the Stars’ 2019 line-up. Lasith Malinga, match-winning hero for Mumbai Indians at the recent IPL final, was snapped up in round one of the and will be joined at St Lucia by two of his countrymen in power-packed all-rounder Thisara Perera and the livewire keeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella.

    The Stars also secured John Campbell, who has been making a real name for himself for the West Indies in 2019, and Rahkeem Cornwall for their 17-man squad.

    Two-time defending champions TKR understandably saw little reason to make wholesale changes. They were the only franchise to take full advantage of the option to retain or acquire six players ahead of the draft, with the high-profile return of Kieron Pollard already confirmed before the news came that his old mate Dwayne Bravo would again be leading the Trinbago charge.

    The leading run-scorer in the 2018 Hero CPL Colin Munro was also retained, along with the versatile and dangerous Sunil Narine and one of the breakout stars of last year’s tournament, USA quick Ali Khan.

    The Knight Riders then moved to bring back more familiar faces in rounds five and eight of the draft in Denesh Ramdin and Khary Pierre. New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham continues a fine tradition of Kiwi talent at the Knight Riders, while the exciting Muhammad Hasnain adds further bowling depth to a squad that will have eyes firmly fixed on a third straight Hero CPL title and fourth overall.

    Last year’s runners-up, Guyana Amazon Warriors, have also kept faith with plenty of last year’s heroes. Keeper-batsman Nicholas Pooran was acquired ahead of the draft as a marquee player, while young hometown heroes Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul and Sherfane Rutherford were all retained along with veteran Pakistan batsman Shoaib Malik.

    Australia spinner Chris Green, who ended last season captaining the Amazon Warriors, was redrafted in round six. The exciting Brandon King and Romario Shepherd are also on board as Guyana, so often the Hero CPL bridesmaids, look to make that last step to glory.

    Having bagged Hales early and announced Jason Holder as their marquee player, the Tridents continued to make waves with some high-quality additions. Pakistan left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz was retained and is joined in Barbados by two international team-mates.

    Hard-hitting all-rounder Asif Ali, whose impressive ODI form against England recently has earned him a World Cup spot, was a round-three pick while canny left-arm spinner Imad Wasim could prove an inspired choice down in round nine of the draft.

    West Indies pair Ashley Nurse and Shai Hope were retained, while Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane is another exciting addition for the Barbados franchise.

    The headline news for Jamaica Tallawahs was the return of the Universe Boss himself, Chris Gayle, and the prospect of him lining up with Andre Russell – arguably the world’s biggest T20 star right now and an easy choice for retention – is a mouth-watering one.

    Glenn Phillips’ impressive form last season saw him retained, as too were fast bowler Oshane Thomas and all-rounder Rovman Powell.

    Chadwick Walton – leading run-scorer back in 2017 – was a round-three pick, while the latest Afghanistan spin sensation Zahir Khan arrived in round five.

    The Patriots retained Evin Lewis, Carlos Brathwaite and the soldier himself Sheldon Cottrell, while South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen also returns. Fabian Allen also stays with the Patriots after being drafted as a marquee player in round two.

    Sri Lanka’s left-arm fast-bowling all-rounder Isuru Udana was the Patriots’ first-round pick, while Englishman Laurie Evans was picked up in round six. Former Guyana Amazon Warrior Rayad Emrit brings plenty of experience to the bowling attack, while Devon Thomas is also no stranger to Hero CPL crowds.

    Each completed squad is made up of 17 players, including a minimum of nine senior West Indian players, two emerging West Indies players, a maximum of five overseas stars, and an ICC Americas player.

    Rightly said, Chadwick Walton might have referred. Though he is a pretty solid pick, Pak should have groomed him along side Faheem as bowling all rounder but unfortunately they didnt. Pretty good bowler who is also a handy lower order hitter.

    Good to see, so many upcoming Pakistani players picked. Surprisingly Usama Mir and Amad Butt might get more games in CPL than they get in PSL which is pretty unfortunate as both pretty talented players:

    Hopefully Hasnain will also work on his game for longer formats as well and not just get confined to T20 leagues. Though really good exposure for him.

    George Worker & Niroshan Dickwella are surprise picks for me. Haven't seen a lot of Worker. Dickwella averages 22 in 60 T20s although has a SR of 140.

    Afif Hossain ahead of the Bangladesh biggies Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiqur or even the young Miraz is surprising. Are they available ? Afif had a T20 debut 5 for including the wicket of Chris Gayle. He is more of a batsman these days I believe but can bowl handy spin.

    Definitely CPL has seen something in Usama Mir & Amad Butt which PSL hasn't seen much as they haven't featured that much in PSL.

    Afghanistan players may not be available. Otherwise players like Rashid, Nabi, Qais, Shahzad, Hazratullah etc would have been in with a chance.

    Jofra Archer would have definitely been picked had he not been in frame for Ashes.

    Why no Imran Tahir ?

    I would have loved to see Fakhar Zaman in CPL. Surprisingly not picked.

    Also Sohail Tanvir not picked has to be the biggest surprise.

    5 overseas players in the squad is too less for me, at least there should be 8 overseas players in the squad like most of the other T20 leagues.

    It's quite something that Usama Mir gets selected by a foreign league but doesn't get in the playing eleven in its local league.

    Says something about the team managements of these PSL franchises.

    Or it could say something about the quality of players available for the CPL. Don't forget the Euro t20 slam or whatever it is called will be played at the same time, lots of stars have signed up for that one instead.

    A lot of the usual suspects have signed up for the EURO T20 league instead which clashes with the CPL. assuming players like Tanvir will be playing there too, he is a GOAT in the CPL.

    The Hero Caribbean Premier League fixtures for the 2019 season have been announced as the best cricketing talent from across the Caribbean and from around the world are set to be part of the Biggest Party in Sport.

    The 34-match season starts later this year, with the opening match happening on 4 September and the final on 12 October 2019. So far, games are confirmed in Barbados, Jamaica, St Lucia, St Kitts & Nevis and Trinidad & Tobago.

    The first match will see last year’s winners, Trinbago Knight Riders, take on St Kitts & Nevis Patriots while the Guyana Amazon Warriors will get underway against St Lucia Stars. Fans will have to wait until game 27 for a repeat of last year’s final with the Knight Riders taking on the Amazon Warriors.

    To coincide with the release of the schedule, CPL have made selected tickets available for sale online for this year’s tournament.

    Damien O’Donohoe, the Hero CPL’s CEO, is excited about the upcoming season. “We are delighted with how Hero CPL continues to grow. Last season we saw more than 200 million viewers watch the tournament and Hero CPL also made a huge impact on the economies of the countries we visited. We are certain that this year we will see those numbers grow once again.”

    Speaking about the announcement of the tournament fixtures Hero CPL’s COO, Pete Russell said: “It is very pleasing to get the fixture list agreed for this year. It is always a challenge and we would like to thank everyone involved in helping to pull this all together.”

    Mohammad Hafeez will be joining the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots for the 2019 tournament which runs from 4 September to 12 October.

    Hafeez will be replacing Rassie van der Dussen who is now unavailable due to international commitments.

    Hafeez has played for the Patriots before, representing them during the 2017 tournament, a year where the franchise finished as runners-up, losing in the final to the Trinbago Knight Riders. That season Hafeez finished with 120 runs and seven wickets for the Patriots.

    Hafeez brings a huge amount of experience to the Patriots squad having played 55 Tests, 218 ODIs and 89 T20 internationals for Pakistan. With more than 5000 runs and 162 wickets he will be an important part of the Patriots squad when they get their campaign underway against the Trinbago Knight Riders in the opening match of the tournament on 4 September.

    Robin Singh, the Patriots’ Director of Cricket said: “We are delighted to have someone with so much experience in T20 cricket joining our squad for the 2019 season. Hafeez is a fantastic player who has had experience of cricket all over the world. We are certain that he will be a huge success at this year’s event, and we are really looking forward to him joining us at our training camp ahead of the competition.”

    Mohammad Hafeez said: “I really enjoyed my time with the Patriots in 2017 and was very pleased to be asked to join them for the 2019 season. The CPL is a competition which has got better every single year and it is great to be involved again after a season off. The Patriots have a really strong squad this year and I am really looking forward to joining up with the rest of the boys.”

    STATEMENT FROM CPL LIMITED WITH REGARD TO ST LUCIA STARS

    On 7 August 2019, CPL Limited terminated the participation agreement between it and Royal Sports Club, LLC, the entity that operated the St Lucia Stars franchise. As a result of that termination, Royal Sports Club, LLC no longer has the right to operate a team to compete in the Caribbean Premier League tournament, and the St Lucia Stars will not be participating in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League, which begins on 4 September 2019.

    CPL Limited is in the process of establishing and operating a new franchise to be based in St Lucia that will participate in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League. More information about that new franchise will follow in due course.

    CPL Limited will be making no further public comment at this time.

    The St Lucia Zouks will replace the St Lucia Stars for the 2019 CPL season following the recent termination of the participation agreement with the company operating the Stars franchise. The Zouks will be playing matches in St Lucia and across the Caribbean in this year’s CPL which takes place from 4 September to 12 October.

    The Zouks was the name of the St Lucia franchise when it was founded in 2013 and it still resonates with cricket fans around the world. St Lucia is one of four islands in the Caribbean known for its zouk music, making it the perfect name for the St Lucian team. The logo is a colourful mixture of blues and yellows with a flame symbol that is derived from the national coat of arms, representing a desire to win.

    The Zouks will be playing 10 group games during the tournament, starting with a match against Guyana Amazon Warriors in Guyana on 5 September. They will visit Trinidad for a game against Trinbago Knight Riders (8 September), Jamaica for the game against the Tallawahs (12 September) and St Kitts to play the Patriots (17 September). They will then play five matches at home between 20 September and 27 September. Their final group game will see them take on Barbados Tridents on 29 September.

    The St Lucia Zouks have announced a number changes to their playing roster for the upcoming season.

    Lasith Malinga will be replaced by Krishmar Santokie for the first 2 games and by Colin de Grandhomme for the remaining matches. Santokie has significant CPL experience, having played for the Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in previous seasons. Santokie has 80 CPL wickets, the second highest by any bowler.

    De Grandhomme was a member of the New Zealand squad that made it to the final of the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup in England. Having scored 2873 runs and taken 65 wickets in his 178 T20 appearances he brings a huge amount of experience to the Zouks squad.

    Thisara Perera and Niroshan Dickwella have international commitments. Perera will miss the first two games and will be replaced by Afghanistan international Najibullah Zadran for those matches.

    Dickwella will miss the whole tournament. He will be replaced by Cameron Delport for the first two games and Hardus Viljoen for the rest of the tournament.

    South African bowler Beuran Hendricks has international commitments and is no longer available. He will be replaced by Dominican all-rounder Kavem Hodge.

    The St Kitts & Nevis Patriots have replaced Isuru Udana, who is now no longer available for the Hero CPL due to international commitments.

    He will be replaced by West Indian fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph, who has played for the Patriots since 2016. Joseph has played nine Tests and 16 ODIs for the West Indies but missed the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup through injury.


    As a Leeward Islands cricketer there is a strong local connection for the Antiguan, Joseph. The Patriots are very proud to be representing the Leeward Islands at CPL so having a local player of such quality join the squad for the 2019 tournament is a huge boost for the franchise.


    The Patriots Director of Cricket, Robin Singh, said: “It is always frustrating to lose players so close to the start of a tournament but in Alzarri we have a local player who is world-class and has a track record of success. As a very promising young fast bowler it is exciting to have Alzarri with us. We feel that the Patriots have a very strong squad this year and we are confident of making the knockout stages and pushing for our first title.”


    Arsenal all the way!! (and Pakistan, of course!)

    The St Lucia Zouks have confirmed that Thisara Perera is now available for the duration of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL). The tournament gets underway on 4 September 2019 with the Zouks playing their first match on 5 September when they travel to face Guyana Amazon Warriors at Providence Stadium.

    It had been previously announced that Perera would be unavailable for the first two matches of the Zouks’ season and a temporary replacement was to be found. With him now available for all 10 group games, and the playoffs should the Zouks reach the knockout stages, that temporary replacement is no longer required.

    Perera was part of the Sri Lanka squad during the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup and has a huge amount of experience of playing T20 cricket around the world. Perera has appeared in 79 international T20 matches and has played 260 T20 games in total, including in domestic leagues in India, England and Pakistan, as well as his native Sri Lanka. He has previously played at the CPL, representing the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.

    WINDOW FOR THE 2020 HERO CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE CONFIRMED

    The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) have agreed a tournament window for the 2020 tournament. Next year’s tournament will take place between 19 August and 26 September 2020.

    This window means that for the third successive year all West Indies contracted players will be available for the duration of the event. With high calibre international stars also set to take part fans across the Caribbean will be able to see the best talent the cricket world has to offer. This window also means that there will be no overlap with the England and Wales Cricket Board’s new event, The Hundred, meaning both tournaments will benefit from having the best possible players available.

    Speaking about the window for the tournament, Pete Russell, COO of Hero CPL, said: “We are very pleased to be playing our tournament in August and September, a time or year that is perfect for us and our fans. Having the best Caribbean cricketers and the world’s best overseas players is the foundation of our tournament and this period gives us that. We may be just days away from the 2019 tournament, but we are already making plans for next year to ensure that we continue to see the phenomenal growth and economic impact that CPL has seen over the years.’

    Johnny Grave, CEO of CWI, said: “The Hero CPL has developed into one of the best and most exciting T20 competitions in the world and we look forward to hosting another successful tournament next month. We are pleased that we have once again found a window in our international calendar for the 2020 season to ensure that all the best West Indian cricketers can take part, as the tournament plays a crucial role in our preparations and planning for the ICC T20 World Cup in 2020."

    Trinbago Knight Riders announced that Dwayne Bravo injured his finger during practice and could miss a significant part of Hero CPL 2019. Consequently, Kieron Pollard has been named the captain of TKR.

    Pollard was picked in the 2019 Player Draft as TKR's Marquee Player and the Trinidadian is set to represent his home franchise for the first time in the CPL.

    Venky Mysore, Director of TKR said, “it’s a very unfortunate injury and Dwayne Bravo will be greatly missed. However, we are fortunate to have someone of the calibre of Kieron Pollard to take over the reins from Bravo. His leadership abilities are well proven and, like Bravo, will bring a very aggressive style as captain in TKR’s quest for a third championship in a row”.

    On assuming the leadership role, Pollard said, "I am standing in the shoes of the entertainer, Dwayne Bravo. I have been waiting for a long time to be made a part of this special team and I am happy to finally be here. This year, a couple of new guys like me have been given the opportunity to be a part of this great franchise. We are looking forward to putting in our best and lifting the title once again in 2019."

    The Trinbago Knight Riders will start their campaign with a home game vs. St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots on Wednesday 4 September.

    Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has put on hold the NOCs' to the few players, who have sought permission to play in the Caribbean Premier League T-20 (CPLT-20), it is learnt here.

    According to the highly placed sources in SLC, the players-Lasith Malinga, Niroshan Dickwella, Thisara Perera are/were part of the St. Lucia Zouks team in the 7th edition of the League in West Indies. Isuru Udana was to play for St Kitts Nevis Patriots team.

    However, many of these players have been replaced due to their international commitments.

    The CPLT-20 tournament will be played from September 4 to October 12.

    On Friday, Cricket South Africa (CSA) named big-hitting all-rounder Isuru Udana as replacement international marquee player for England's David Willey in the Paarl Rocks squad for the second edition of the Mzansi Super League (MSL 2.0).

    SLC has also invited 30-odd players on September 9 at the head quarter, where they will be briefed by the president Shammi Silva and Roshan Goonathilake and they will also be shown the security plan put in place by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the forthcoming tour by Sri Lankan team.

    Few senior players have expressed concern over touring Pakistan due to security fear. Lasith Malinga, Anjelo Mathews, Dimuth Karunarthane, Kusal Perera, Kushal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella and Lahiru Thirimane are reported to be "not too enthusiast" for this tour.

    The briefing will also be attended by the chief selector Ashantha De Mel, who will check the availability of the players for the Pakistan tour.

    At present the Hon. sports minister Harin Fernando is not likely to attend the meeting with the players but his interaction with the players before the tour is not ruled out either. The minister may also be with the team in Pakistan for a short period.

    A power-packed 47 from new skipper Kieron Pollard and all-round heroics from New Zealand star Jimmy Neesham helped two-time defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders start the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with a thrilling 11-run win over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.



    Pollard, leading the side after the finger injury suffered by Dwayne Bravo, powered his side to 152/7 after Neesham and Denesh Ramdin’s 60-run partnership had begun the champions’ recovery from an early slump to 24/3.



    After his vital 33 with the bat, Neesham then made the crucial first breakthrough with the ball to end a 47-run opening partnership, having Kjorn Ottley caught and bowled off a slower ball for 25, before catching Evin Lewis for 36 off the impressive Khary Pierre to trigger a decisive collapse of four wickets for six runs.



    Neesham later returned to nervelessly defend 13 from the final over of the match, taking the last two wickets with a pair of low full-tosses zeroing in on the stumps to seal victory.



    The Patriots’ pursuit of 153 - no more than a par score with dew making life tricky for the bowlers - appeared to be well in hand at 70/1. Three overs later, the scoreboard read 76/5 after Pierre and spin twin Seekkuge Prasanna ripped the heart out of the middle-order.



    Jason Mohammed fell for a duck and Devon Thomas just 1, while a horrible mix-up saw Carlos Brathwaite run out for only 2.



    That appeared to be that, but Fabian Allen rekindled the visitors hopes by blasting four sixes off Prasanna’s third over - an assault made all the more astonishing by the fact just three runs, a wicket and that run out had come from the Sri Lankan’s first two.



    Allen, though, was superbly caught at third-man by Prasanna himself off Mohammad Hasnain in the next over for 30 from just 14 balls. Usama Mir bravely took up the charge with an enterprising 24 from just 10 balls, including one astonishing ramped six over fine-leg off Hasnain, but ultimately he had just too much to do.



    He was bowled by Neesham in the final over and was swiftly followed by last man Sheldon Cottrell, who had been the early star of proceedings at the Queen’s Park Oval with superb figures of 3/13 from his four overs.



    His trademark salute celebration got its first outing of the 2019 Hero CPL in his - and the tournament’s - very first over as Sunil Narine was clean bowled, with Tion Webster following soon after. Cottrell then returned at the back end of the innings to remove the well-set Ramdin.



    Ramdin’s partnership with Neesham had dug the Knight Riders out of that hole before Pollard’s fireworks lifted them to a total that proved beyond the Patriots. Ramdin picked up two sixes and hit the experienced Mohammad Hafeez out of the attack after just one over as the defending champions began to fight back.



    Neesham hit three fours in his first nine balls to provide some much-needed momentum and brought up the 50 partnership with his first six, picked up off his pads over midwicket off Brathwaite.



    But Brathwaite gained swift revenge in the field as the New Zealand star fell soon after to a fine low diving catch from the Patriots skipper running in from long-off to hand veteran seamer Rayad Emrit the first of his three wickets.



    Pakistani leg-spinner Usama conceded just seven in his first two overs while Pollard got his eye in. Once he did, though, his brutal power was on full display in Usama’s third. A short ball was hit high and handsome into the stands before an over-corrected full ball was smashed ferociously straight back past the bowler and was cannoning back off the boundary boards an instant later.



    That over got the impetus back into the innings, and three more boundaries - one for Ramdin, two for Pollard - followed in the next from Brathwaite.



    Pollard was very much in the mood now, and when an Emrit no-ball offered a free hit it was all the encouragement he needed. The ball duly disappeared straight back over the bowler’s head to bring up another 50-run stand.



    With things starting to go awry for the Patriots, Brathwaite turned to his main man Cottrell for the 18th over of the innings and got an instant result as a beautifully disguised slower ball deceived Ramdin into skying to deep square-leg, where Allen held the simple chance.



    Brathwaite himself followed up with a fine penultimate over, giving up just four singles to frustrate his opposite number Pollard.



    There was to be no half-century for Pollard, who fell for 47 as one of two Emrit victims caught on the fence in the final over of the innings, but he had done enough to set his team up for a winning start to their title defence.



    Upcoming Fixtures: Thursday 5 September - Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Zouks (6pm), Providence Stadium; Friday 6 September – Trinbago Knight Riders v Jamaica Tallawahs (8pm), Queen’s Park Oval.

    2019 HERO CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE - MATCH REPORT 2

    Guyana Amazon Warriors 155/9 (Paul 38, Malik 28, Green 28, Hetmyer 24, McCoy 4/41, Fawad 2/25) beat St Lucia Zouks 142/9 (Cornwall 36, Zadran 23, Shadab 3/16, Shepherd 2/18, Green 2/28) by 13 runs

    A seventh-wicket partnership of 48 from 21 balls between Keemo Paul and Chris Green proved decisive as 2018 runners-up, Guyana Amazon Warriors, made a winning start to their 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) campaign against St Lucia Zouks.

    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 wickets – including the crucial one of Rahkeem Cornwall – to complete a fine all-round display, while gun leg-spinner Shadab Khan took 3/16 from his four overs and Romario Shepherd 2/18 as the Warriors ran out 13-run winners.

    Cornwall, who made his West Indies Test debut last week, had threatened to render all Paul and Green’s good work moot in a brutal assault on the new ball. The all-rounder had plundered 36 from just 13 balls, including a huge six over long-leg sandwiched between a pair of fours to greet Ben Laughlin to the attack, before being pinned by a quicker full delivery from Green that thumped into the batsman’s boot on the full.

    Green had by then already accounted for Andre McCarthy, Paul taking the catch at mid-off as Guyana’s batting heroes combined in the field, and Shadab had dismissed the dangerous Andre Fletcher in his first over.

    Cornwall’s quick-fire start had got the Zouks well ahead of the rate but they just kept losing wickets every time they looked poised to take control of the chase. Najibullah Zadran unfurled some eye-catching boundaries in his 23 before holing out to Sherfane Rutherford at deep square-leg off Shepherd, and Shadab had his second wicket when Christopher Barnwell lunged forward only to be beaten and stumped.

    That left vastly experienced all-rounders Thisara Perera and Daren Sammy together for the Zouks knowing they had a lengthy tail to protect and still more than 70 runs needed.

    The early signs were promising, with Sammy taking a four and a six from Green’s final over to dent his figures, but the boundaries dried up after that and the run-rate started to climb.

    When Sammy and Perera fell in successive overs, both caught in the deep by Shimron Hetmyer off Shadab and Shepherd respectively, the game was up for the Zouks. Krishmar Santokie briefly flickered the chase back into life by taking Laughlin for ten runs in his first two balls, but the wickets continued to fall regularly as the Zouks came up short.

    In a Guyana innings that had bobbed along at around a run a ball for the most part, Paul launched three huge Hero Maximums and three fours in his 22-ball stay, with Green sending an Obed McCoy free-hit all the way over midwicket and adding two fours in the final over to lift the Warriors beyond 150 before sacrificing himself to a run out looking for an impossible second run from the final ball of the innings to depart with 28 from 15 to his name.

    Until that partnership it had been a frustratingly stop-start innings. Brandon King slapped the first ball of the night from Perera for four but added just three more from another eight balls before edging an attempted legside heave through to Fletcher off Kesrick Williams.

    Setting the tone for much of what was to follow, Chandrapaul Hemraj looked to be finding his range when he smashed Santokie magnificently over cover for the first six of the night only to fall later that same over, deceived by a clever slower ball and holing out to Perera at long-off.

    Hetmyer and captain Shoaib Malik opted for patient rebuilding after the loss of both openers, but neither man was able to kick on.

    Hetmyer picked out deep cover off McCoy, and when Nicholas Pooran was bowled off the inside edge next ball McCoy was on a hat-trick and the Warriors right back in trouble.

    Sherfane Rutherford survived the hat-trick ball and got a couple of eye-catching boundaries away before he too succumbed, beaten by a big-spinning googly from Fawad Ahmed and overbalancing to give Fletcher the briefest of windows to complete the stumping. The keeper was up to the task with a sharp piece of glovework.

    Malik went the same way, albeit with Fletcher having a far easier task this time as the Warriors skipper ran past one and never had any hope of getting back.

    Paul and Shadab were dismissed in successive balls in the final over of the innings as McCoy found himself on a hat-trick for the second time in the night, but by then the Warriors had enough.

    Not sure about the first two matches, but the overrate in today's match is shambolic. A T20 match shouldn't go on for 4 hours.

    Too much for Russell to do. Even with lives couldn't do. Part of the reason can be attributed to that 'no stroke' wonder Worker from New zealand. Absolute dud.

    Trinbago Knight Riders secured their second win of the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with a 22-win over Jamaica Tallawahs despite Andre Russell threatening to pull off another unlikely heist.

    Last year, Russell had won a game against the Knight Riders almost single-handedly from a seemingly impossible position with a century for the ages, and for a while here he threatened something similar in a game TKR had otherwise dominated.

    The Tallawahs needed 99 from 42 when Russell came to the crease, but he smoked the third ball he faced high and handsome over wide long-on for six. When he muscled the next one down the ground and was dropped by Neesham – the ball rolling into the rope for good measure – a repeat of 2018 looked all too feasible

    Ultimately, though, he had been left just too much to do on this occasion. Despite three more monster maximums and the able assistance of George Worker, who finished with 46 and more than played his part in a thrilling 67-run stand it was instead a maiden Hero CPL half-century for Tion Webster and Sunil Narine’s all-round efforts for the Knight Riders that proved decisive.

    Webster batted through the TKR innings for his unbeaten 66, with the Knight Riders given early impetus by Narine’s quick-fire 46 at number three. Kieron Pollard made 33 not out at the back end of the innings to lift the total to 191/4 before Narine added figures of 2/23 from four overs to his night’s work.

    Narine got the first Tallawahs wicket to fall, following his batting exploits with the crucial dismissal of Glenn Phillips. The Kiwi keeper-batsman was the second-highest run-scorer in last season’s tournament but made just 6 in his first outing of the 2019 Hero CPL before being bowled by one that spun through the gate.

    Chris Gayle hit back-to-back sixes off Mohammad Hosnain and a huge six down the ground off Ali Khan on his return to Tallawahs colours but fell to the American’s very next ball for 28 as sub fielder Akeal Hosein held a juggling catch at deep midwicket.

    Rovman Powell picked out Khary Pierre in the deep to hand Seekkuge Prasanna a wicket in his first over to leave the Tallawahs three down and falling well below the required rate.

    The squeeze was on. Narine, Pierre and Prasanna at one stage had combined figures of 2/32 from seven overs to leave the Tallawahs limping along below a run a ball at the halfway stage of the innings.

    Something had to give, and it did in a loose opening over from Jimmy Neesham. Chadwick Walton smeared a high full-toss over way over the third-man boundary for six and added two further boundaries in an over that brought 17 to the total but still left the target at a daunting 109 from 48 balls.

    The return of Narine brought the end of Walton, Neesham taking the catch, but that brought Russell to the crease.

    Narine was slog-swept miles over midwicket for Russell’s second six and even though the target had by this point reached 71 from 24 nobody was ready to call this one for the Knight Riders while Dre Russ remained.

    Russell smacked two more fours off Ali Khan before a no-ball was paddled for four by Worker. The next ball clattered the off stump, with Khan and his team-mates briefly forgetting it was a free hit.

    Remarkably, Russell was handed another life as a miscue was put down at deep cover and the Knight Riders’ nerves were there for all to see. Worker flashed an edge down to third-man for four and the Knight Riders feared the worst.

    In truth, though, there was no margin for error and too many dot balls in between the sixes did for the Tallawahs, with the target spiraling to 50 from two overs and eventually 32 from five balls when Russell finally fell, caught on the fence off Neesham.

    Earlier in the night, the Knight Riders innings had got off to a breathless start and rarely let up. Lendl Simmons set the tone, slashing the very first ball of the night from Oshane Thomas over point for four and adding a Hero Maximum before the over was out.

    He fell in the second over, though, deceived by the spin of Christopher Lamont and bowled. That brought Narine to the middle for a whirlwind innings. In the space of his first four balls he had bludgeoned two fours, smashed a six over long-on and sent a steepler down to long-leg that was dropped by Gayle.

    TKR had 27/1 on the board from just 12 balls as everyone tried to catch their breath. Jerome Taylor wasn’t able to calm things down, bowling three wides in his first over before Narine took three more boundaries – two fours and another Hero Maximum – from Thomas’ second.

    Two wickets in two overs seemed set to check the Knight Riders’ progress as Narine holed out to Walton at long-on off Shamar Springer for a thrilling shot-a-ball 46 from 22 and Neesham, man of the match two nights ago in the tournament opener, chipped a return catch to Steven Jacobs for just 6.

    Instead, Webster simply took up the challenge. Having been content to be the silent partner during Narine’s fun, he smashed 14 in three balls off Springer to start the 11th over and send TKR screeching past 100.

    Another costly dropped catch for the Tallawahs saw Jacobs put down Denesh Ramdin after he top-edged hooking a Thomas bouncer. It should have been taken.

    The Knight Riders keeper had just 5 to his name at the time, but cashed in on his let-off with two fours and a six in the next over from Lamont before Webster went through to his maiden Hero CPL half-century from 37 balls.

    Ramdin was cleaned up by a low Russell full-toss for 21, but that only brought Pollard to the crease. Perhaps surprisingly, his arrival led to just about the only pause to catch breath in the innings as he gave himself a few balls to get his eye in.

    The respite was brief. Pollard smashed two fours in the 18th over, Pollard and Webster one apiece in the 19th before a stunning save from Rovman Powell – catching the ball and throwing it back into play as he flew over the boundary rope turned a six into a single.

    Thomas’ produced a fine closing over, but Pollard still clubbed the final ball of the innings to the fence. In the end it was Pollard who came out on top in the battle of the big all-rounders. But it got mighty tense for a while.

    The Barbados Tridents have announced two replacements to their squad for the 2019 season, with JP Duminy and Josh Lalor now set to play at this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League. They will replace Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim who are now no longer available due to international commitments.

    Batting all-rounder, JP Duminy, has played for South Africa more than 300 times across Tests, ODIs and T20s, scoring over 9000 runs in international cricket as well as claiming well over 100 international wickets. Having played in T20 leagues in India, Pakistan, England and his native South Africa, Duminy has a huge amount of experience to bring to the Tridents.

    Josh Lalor is a left-arm seam bowler who has succeeded in the Big Bash League for the Brisbane Heat. He was one of the standout players in the 2019 tournament where he claimed a hat-trick against the Perth Scorchers and a five wicket haul against the Sydney Sixers. His left arm seamers will add valuable variation to the Tridents already strong bowling attack.

    Guyana Amazon Warriors 159/2 (Hetmyer 70*, Hemraj 33, King 27, Malik 23*, Brathwaite 1/28) beat St Kitts & Nevis Patriots 153/8 (Thomas 62, Allen 33, Shadab 2/20, Laughlin 2/43) by 8 wickets

    Last year’s runners-up Guyana Amazon Warriors joined 2018 champions Trinbago Knight Riders on two wins from two in the early stages of the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with a comfortable eight-wicket victory over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at Providence Stadium.

    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 Shimron Hetmyer showed his class to steer his side to victory with a superb unbeaten 70 from 47, including a six to seal the win.

    After a watchful couple of overs to begin the chase, the innings burst into life with three boundaries from Sheldon Cottrell’s second over, and two Hero Maximums from Hemraj off Usama Mir took the score to 55/0 and the target down to double-figures by the end of the Power Play.

    Hemraj departed for a lively 39 from 24 to a fine diving catch from Fabian Allen at point off Carlos Brathwaite, but that just brought Hetmyer to the middle.

    Initially looking to put pressure on the fielders with hard running between the wickets, Hetmyer was soon finding the boundary regularly as the Warriors stalked their target.

    Back-to-back fours off Brathwaite really got him going before a glorious shot played inside-out and on the up over extra-cover off Rayad Emrit brought four more.

    He lost King for a well-compiled 27, smartly caught low down by Usama Mir at short third-man off Cottrell but Hetmyer was unfazed. He immediately pulled Cottrell away behind square-leg for a one-bounce four and went four, four, six off Alzarri Joseph in the 14th over to bring the target down to a run a ball.

    From there it was a simple task for Hetmyer and the vastly experienced Shoaib Malik, the winning runs coming with eight wickets and seven balls to spare thanks to Hetmyer’s third Hero Maximum.

    Unlike the Warriors, the Patriots were just never really got going in their innings - until Allen joined Devon Thomas late in the piece - despite a gift from Keemo Paul in his first over, the second of the innings.

    He appeared to have reduced the Patriots to 9/1 with the final ball of the over when he rearranged Kjorn Ottley’s stumps, but replays showed he had overstepped. Not only did Ottley get a reprieve, but also a free hit to go after. That was smashed over midwicket for four with Paul having overstepped again. Another free hit and another boundary, this time flashed down to third-man off a thick outside edge.

    From an apparent 9/1 off two overs, the Patriots instead found themselves 19/0. But they couldn’t capitalize. Ottley fell in the very next over, a disastrous mix-up leaving him stranded mid-pitch as Green gathered Nicholas Pooran’s throw and removed the bails.

    Evin Lewis launched a Hero Maximum down the ground but was caught at square-leg off the impressive Shadab soon after.

    Thomas was initially watchful but was the one Patriot able to find the boundary with some regularity. Third-man was a particularly profitable area via a combination of expertly played glides and a couple of slightly more fortunate thick edges off the luckless Paul.

    Thomas dominated a 54-run stand for the third wicket with Mohammad Hafeez, whose patience eventually ran out when he sliced Shadab to long-off for 14 from 18 balls. Patriots skipper Brathwaite was caught at midwicket second ball pulling Paul, who this time did have something behind the front line – just.

    Allen provided Thomas with decent support, though. The Patriots keeper went through to a fine half-century in spectacular style with back-to-back sixes down the ground and over midwicket off the previously unhittable Shadab – his other 22 deliveries brought just eight runs in total.

    Shadab wasn’t finished, though, producing an excellent sprawling catch in the deep to end Thomas’ innings at 62 from 49 and hand Green his only wicket in a typically miserly spell – only 18 runs came from his four overs.

    Allen took on the senior role, driving Romario Shepherd imperiously over extra-cover for a Hero Maximum but lost Jason Mohammed for just 4.

    The final over was a good one for the Patriots despite the loss of both Allen for 33 and Mir without scoring with 17 runs coming from it. Ten of those came in the last two balls as Joseph lifted the total beyond 150 with a six over midwicket and a four belted down the ground but it never looked likely to be enough.

    Defending Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) champions Trinbago Knight Riders made it three wins from three in their season-opening home stint after cruising past St Lucia Zouks’ 167/5 with seven wickets and 13 balls to spare.

    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 Narine adding another Hero Maximum as 14 came from the opening over.

    With the boundaries coming so regularly, even the loss of Narine and Tion Webster in the space of nine balls – the latter caught at point from Fawad Ahmed’s first ball of the day – did nothing to staunch the flow. Simmons ended that Fawad over with another huge six over long-on and on to the roof before smoking back-to-back Hero Maximums in the champion leg-spinner’s next over. His half-century came up with his fourth four to go with four sixes in just 32 balls, by which time the Knight Riders’ overall target was already down to double-figures.

    Ramdin had been understandably content to play second fiddle to Simmons for the most part but he too cut loose once the partnership reached 50, taking Fawad for 10 in two balls as 17 runs came from the 11th over of the innings.

    Simmons continued the boundary spree with his fifth Hero Maximum, powered down the ground off Kavem Hodge, but the bowler had instant revenge as Simmons ran past a wide to be comprehensively stumped by Andre Fletcher.

    The target was by now down to 62 from 52, though, and with Kieron Pollard striding to the middle to join Ramdin there was little reason for optimism from the Zouks.

    Pollard’s first six, smeared high and handsome over long-on, and a four slapped through cover by Ramdin off Perera’s second over – the 15th of the innings – brought the required rate down to a run a ball and made the result a formality.

    All that remained to be determined was whether Ramdin could complete his 50 before Pollard finished the game, and back-to-back fours through midwicket and point took him to 47 and the victory target down to seven at the start of the 18th over.

    He duly got to the landmark with a clip for two that brought the scores level, and the Zouks’ day to forget ended with a wide outside off to hand TKR the winning run.

    The Zouks innings, just as in their opening match against Guyana Amazon Warriors, was given a stunning start by Rahkeem Cornwall. He followed up a 14-ball 36 in that game with 33 from 12 here.

    His departure, trapped plumb in front on the sweep by Narine, brought an inevitable slowing of the rate.

    Fletcher struggled to cut loose in a frustrating 32-ball stay that brought him 26 runs while Najibullah Zadran’s promising cameo was ended at 26 from 17 balls when he picked out Javon Searles on the long-off boundary from a Mohammad Hasnain slower ball.

    Daren Sammy smashed back-to-back sixes in his 16 from 13, while John Campbell did start to find the boundary towards the back end of the innings but once again it felt like the Zouks had failed to take full advantage of the early momentum the innings had been given by their big opener.

    An extraordinary unbroken fifth-wicket partnership of 78 from just 29 balls between Nicholas Pooran and Sherfane Rutherford set Guyana Amazon Warriors on their way to a third straight Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory at the expense of Barbados Tridents.

    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 looked far from certain. Chandrapaul Hemraj was the only one of the top four to get to grips with tricky batting conditions, dominating the early scoring to such an extent that when the Warriors had 31/1 on the board after the PowerPlay Hemraj had accounted for 27 of them.

    When he fell for a well-compiled 63 from 55 balls, blending watchful defence and accumulation with six fours and three Hero Maximums, the innings looked in danger of falling away at 102/4 one ball into the 16th over.

    Brandon King had top-edged a pull shot to give Leniko Boucher an easy catch behind the wicket for just 1. Saturday night’s hero Shimron Hetmyer had gone cheaply too, superbly caught goalkeeper style by sub-fielder Hayden Walsh Jr at point for 9 off the bowling of Roshon Primus, who also accounted for Warriors captain Shoaib Malik for 4 when an attempt to run the ball down to third-man succeeded only in steering the ball in to Boucher’s gloves.

    But almost from the moment Rutherford and Pooran got together after Hemraj’s departure the game changed. Rutherford was the first to cut loose, smashing the fifth ball he faced clean out of Providence Stadium off Aussie paceman Josh Lalor. Back-to-back Hero Maximums followed for the 20-year-old off Holder in the next over before his best shot of the night off Primus. It was a low full-toss that Rutherford somehow managed to hit hard and flat over the fence at point with astonishing wristwork.

    It was truly special stuff, taking Rutherford at that stage to 30 from 11 balls, but remarkably former Trident Pooran was about to upstage his partner. Having made 25 from the first 22 balls he faced, Pooran plundered a scarcely believable 36 from the last eight. Five of those deliveries disappeared into the stands, including two enormous hits over midwicket back-to-back off Primus. Raymon Reifer’s final over was marmalised, with three sixes in four balls over long-on, long-off and extra-cover. The middle of those three brought up Pooran’s 50, and what an innings it was.

    In all, 72 runs came from the last four overs of the innings – 45 of them from the last two.

    As can happen, the momentum from the end of the Warriors’ batting effort carried into their bowling effort. Having impressed when opening the batting, Hemraj was also handed the new ball with instant results as the Tridents’ star signing Alex Hales was bowled first ball playing back when he ought to have been forward.

    The ever-impressive Shadab Khan took care of Johnson Charles and Boucher before Malik brought himself into the attack and promptly enticed Jonathan Carter to drag on.

    Worse was to come for the Tridents in the next over as an attempted second run to Keemo Paul’s bullet arm in the deep saw skipper Jason Holder caught inches short of his ground for just 4

    JP Duminy scrapped his way to 20 before dragging an awkward-looking pull shot into his stumps to hand Paul a first wicket of the night to leave the Tridents in tatters at 75/6.

    Ashley Nurse restored some respectability with some lusty blows of his own, launching his very first ball straight back over Chris Green’s head for a Hero Maximum and adding a further two sixes and three fours in his 40 from 25 balls, but it was little more than damage limitation.

    Pooran was again to the fore in Nurse’s downfall, flying to his left to take a superb leg-side catch as Nurse lap-swept Romario Shepherd, who then bowled Raymon Reifer round his legs first ball. Josh Lalor survived the hat-trick ball – just about, having decided to run down the wicket and try to blast it – but the game was long gone.

    Shepherd finished things off with minimal fuss in his next over, having Primus well held low down by Hetmyer at long-on and then rearranging Sandeep Lamichhane’s stumps to finish with exceptional figures of 4/13 from just 2.4 overs.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    9 September 2019, Georgetown, Guyana

    IMRAN TAHIR AND QAIS AHMAD TO JOIN GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

    The Guyana Amazon Warriors have announced that Shadab Khan, the Pakistan international leg-spinner, will only be available for the first three games of their Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season due to domestic commitments. He will be replaced by South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir.



    Tahir played for the Amazon Warriors in 2018 where he claimed 16 wickets at 17.75 as the team made it to the final where they were beaten by the Trinbago Knight Riders. Tahir was part of the South African squad at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup where he claimed 11 wickets in his nine matches in the tournament.



    The Amazon Warriors have also announced a replacement for USA player Saurabh Netravalkar who will be unavailable due to international commitments. Netravalkar was drafted as the Amazon Warriors ICC Americas player, but draft rules allow for him to be replaced by a Caribbean or overseas player.



    Netravalkar will be replaced by Afghan leg-spinner Qais Ahmad who played for the St Lucia franchise in the 2018 Hero CPL. Qais has 35 wickets in T20 cricket at the very impressive average of 18 from his 27 matches in the format.

    St Kitts & Nevis Patriots produced the most astonishing Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory as they chased down Jamaica Tallawahs’ 241/4 on a night when sixes flew and records tumbled at Warner Park.

    The Tallawahs appeared home and hosed at the halfway stage after Chris Gayle had returned to torment the side he had led for the previous two seasons. The Universe Boss smashed 116 from 62 balls with 10 sixes to register his 22nd T20 century, sharing a Hero CPL record partnership of 162 with Chadwick Walton – who kept pace with Gayle in his own 36-ball innings of 73 – to propel the Tallawahs to the highest total in the history of the tournament.

    It was a record that would stand for only two hours as the Patriots reached 242/6 with seven balls to spare. The sixes just kept flying, the records just kept tumbling. Evin Lewis hit six Hero Maximums and three fours as he blitzed his way to 50 in just 17 balls – another Hero CPL record – and took the Patriots to 85/0 inside the Power Play before he was surprised by extra bounce and caught behind by Glenn Phillips off Andre Russell.

    But he had shown the way, and his team-mates followed his lead.

    Devon Thomas made his way to 50 off 30 balls and new arrival Laurie Evans from England gave an immediate display of his class as spin and seam alike disappeared to all parts of Warner Park.

    Evans’ third Hero Maximum meant that, remarkably, the Patriots were well on course for victory at halfway with 133/1 on the board and only another 108 required.

    But Evans fell in the 12th over, caught by Russell at deep point off Oshane Thomas for 41. When Phillips flung himself to his right to take a stunning one-handed catch to dismiss Devon Thomas at the start of Oshane Thomas’ next over things appeared to be unravelling and it looked like the Patriots’ brave and brilliant bid for victory would come up short. Carlos Brathwaite and Jason Mohammed fell in the same over without scoring.

    Still the Patriots kept coming, though. Shamarh Brooks joined Fabian Allen and immediately smashed his first Hero Maximum and the game’s 35th – yes, that’s another record. The next ball was slammed over mid-off and the Patriots found themselves needing just 43 from 24 balls.

    Allen brought up the 200 with the biggest six of all, waiting on a Jerome Taylor slower ball and sending it miles over long-on and out of the stadium. A four down the ground for Brooks took the required rate down to below 10 an over from the last 18 balls.

    Shamar Springer started the crucial 18th over with a nervous-looking wide and was hit through midwicket for four by Brooks before a couple of scampered twos and a single kept things on track. Allen then steered the final ball of the over past short third-man. Suddenly, the Patriots needed just 15 from 12.

    Another twist in this extraordinary spectacle seemed possible when Russell cleaned up Brooks for 27 at the start of the 19th over, but Allen was having absolutely none of it. A scampered leg-bye got him back on strike, and he smashed the last 14 runs required from the next three balls to complete a thrilling win.

    The Patriots had not just chased down the highest total ever made in the Hero CPL, but had done so with more than an over to spare.

    It had all looked so very unlikely when Gayle was dominating the first half of the night.

    He made his intentions clear from the very first over when he dispatched Allen’s left-arm spin for four through square-leg and then huge Hero Maximums over long-on and midwicket in successive balls.

    Alzarri Joseph dismissed the dangerous Phillips – who made a century against the Patriots last season – for just 8 but Gayle was not about to be stopped.

    Back-to-back boundaries off Rayad Emrit propelled Gayle into the 30s and he found a willing ally in Walton.

    Having not scored from the first six balls he faced, Walton then took just a further nine deliveries to reach 30 and got to 50 off 25 in all. A Gordon Greenidge-style pull shot off Dominic Drakes getting him off the mark with a Hero Maximum; the next ball was pumped down the ground for a one-bounce four.

    Usama Mir’s first over was pulverized. A sweep shot brought Walton four before back-to-back big hits down the ground for six, the first of them landing on the roof of Warner Park.

    The 50 partnership came up in 39 balls before another big over off Usama. First Walton and then Gayle cleared long-on to take the Tallawahs to three figures and leave the leg-spinner nursing figures of 0/33 from two overs.

    Walton won the race to 50 despite giving Gayle a three-over headstart and failing to score from his first six balls faced. Inevitably, he got there with a Hero Maximum, carved over third-man. Gayle was not far behind, pumping Joseph down the ground to reach a double landmark. Not only did it take him to 53 from 37 balls, it was also the 150th Hero Maximum of the Universe Boss’ Hero CPL career. No other player has yet reached 100.

    Walton was for now winning the six-hitting race here, though, adding his seventh of the innings in the same Brathwaite over to dent the Patriots skipper’s figures.

    And still the sixes kept coming. Gayle smashed three more from Emrit’s third over, and Walton added his eighth with a scoop over fine-leg off Drakes.

    Gayle brought up the 150 partnership with three sixes in a row to start Brathwaite’s fourth and final over. Thoughts of six sixes in an over ended with a single from the fourth ball but Brathwaite, having conceded just six runs in his first two overs, still ended with the bruising figures of 0/42.

    Gayle got through to his hundred after a nervous wait while the third umpire checked Walton had completed the second run needed to get Gayle from 98 to 100. The not out verdict confirmed Gayle’s 22nd T20 century, almost three times as many as any other player.

    Walton’s reprieve was short-lived, though, well caught by Brathwaite after skying one off Joseph. Relief for the Patriots – until they saw Russell walk to the crease.

    Gayle was still the main man, though. He picked up three successive fours off Joseph, the third of which had Russell taking desperate evasive action as the ball whistled past him at the non-striker’s end.

    Russell himself launched a couple of sixes of his own before he, like Gayle, departed in the final over – both caught by Brathwaite, who caught all four Tallawahs batsman to fall – as Allen got a measure of revenge.

    There was time for one last big hit in the innings as Springer walked in to face the final ball and sent it sailing over the ropes to take the score beyond 240. Remarkably, it would not be nearly enough.

    Upcoming Fixtures: Wednesday 11 September – St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v Barbados Tridents (6pm), Warner Park; Thursday 12 September – Jamaica Tallawahs v St Lucia Zouks (7pm),

    Having chased a Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) record of 242 on Tuesday night, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots were brought back down to earth by Barbados Tridents on Wednesday.

    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 removed Devon Thomas with the first ball he bowled – a beauty that nipped away just enough to find the outside edge – and then had another of last night’s key performers Evin Lewis skying a catch to cover in the same over.

    Laurie Evans made a classy 64 from 41 with boundaries all round the ground, but nobody else was able to stay with him and score at the required rate.

    Jason Mohammed was strangled down the legside by Roshon Primus for 12 before the Tridents’ leg-spinners made a decisive move with four wickets in three overs before rain held up the victory charge. Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane bagged two wickets in his third over. First Shamarh Brooks was smartly caught by Ashley Nurse running back from cover for 13 before the key wicket of Evans, caught by Josh Lalor at short fine-leg from a top-edged sweep.

    A pair of googlies brought two more crucial breakthroughs in the next two overs, Fabian Allen bowled by Hayden Walsh Jr and Carlos Brathwaite lbw to Lamichhane for just a single run between them to leave the Patriots deep in trouble at 107/7 needing 80 runs with just 31 balls left when a sudden downpour sent the players scurrying for cover.

    The rain, which came down hard, held up the Tridents by 45 minutes. When play resumed, Walsh Jr promptly bowled Usama Mir, who got nowhere near an attempted slog and lost his off stump.

    Rayad Emrit fell looking for his second six of the night but instead picking out Jason Holder at long-on off Lalor.

    Dominic Drakes had some fun despite the hopelessness of the situation, hitting Holder for three huge sixes in the 18th over and in all slapping 34 not out off 13 balls in an unbroken 10th-wicket partnership of 49 with Alzarri Joseph to end the night as the Patriots second top-scorer and make the final margin of defeat far closer than it might have been. There may not have been as many records as the previous day’s game, but here was one: Drakes’ 34 not out is the highest ever T20 score by a number 11.

    The Tridents were indebted to an explosive late injection from Duminy to get a competitive total on the board after being tied down themselves for much of their innings.


    Alex Hales got things off to a lively start with four fours through the offside inside the first three overs of the innings, but after he was dismissed caught behind trying to run Emrit down to third-man, the scoring rate dropped dramatically.

    On a ground where a record-breaking 37 sixes were struck the night before, the Tridents didn’t clear the ropes until Johnson Charles picked a length ball up off his pads over the legside off Brathwaite.

    Charles had started slowly but began to find his range and struck back-to-back Hero Maximums off Usama Mir to reach his half-century in 41 balls. He fell two balls later, though, picking out Brooks – who also dropped a couple of simple catches – at deep midwicket looking for a third six of the innings.

    Keeper-batsman Leniko Boucher made his first Hero CPL half-century in an innings of increasing authority. Having taken 22 balls over his first 22 runs he added 40 more from the next 25 he faced to finish unbeaten on 62 with four fours and three sixes to his name.

    It was Duminy, though, who was most responsible for lifting the Tridents to what would prove a match-winning total, smashing an unbeaten 43 from just 18 and striking the ball noticeably cleaner than his team-mates. He sent four balls sailing way over the ropes with 73 runs coming from the final six overs when the South African veteran was at the crease.

    St Lucia Zouks secured an impressive first victory of their 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) campaign on a night marred by a nasty-looking injury for Jamaica Tallawahs’ star all-rounder Andre Russell.

    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 the back of the head by a Hardus Viljoen bouncer was one nobody wanted to see. Russell was taken to hospital and given the all-clear after a scan. On the doctors’ advice, he returned to the team hotel to rest. The Tallawahs are hopeful he will return to action after a few days off.

    Back on the field, the Zouks’ run-chase was a formality after the flying start provided by their opening pair, who put on 111 in just 52 balls, despite a late wobble as Oshane Thomas took three wickets in his final nine balls.

    Nine sixes came in the six-over Power Play as loose bowling and dropped catches cost the Tallawahs dear.

    Cornwall raced to his 50 in just 19 balls, six of which he sent over the ropes. Three sixes came in the third over of the innings, bowled by Jerome Taylor. First Fletcher picked him up over the legside before Cornwall went down the ground for the full count off successive deliveries.

    Another pair of successive sixes off George Worker’s part-time spin took Cornwall within one run of the half-century, which he duly reached next ball with a single.

    The end of the fielding restrictions did nothing to change Cornwall and Fletcher’s intent. The big man blasted a four and two more sixes from the first four balls of the seventh over, and when Fletcher hit the first ball of the eighth over to the cover boundary the hundred was up and the required rate down below a run a ball.

    Cornwall’s fun was eventually ended by an inside edge into his stumps off Shamar Springer for a remarkable 75. He faced just 30 balls, eight of them dispatched into the stands.

    John Campbell followed soon after, plumb lbw to Ramaal Lewis, but the Zouks were so far ahead of the rate that they could afford to take stock. Colin de Grandhomme joined Fletcher and, after giving himself a few sighters, plundered two fours and a huge slog-swept six over deep midwicket from Lewis’ second over.

    The Zouks were far enough ahead of the game that a superb two-over spell from Thomas, picking up the wickets of de Grandhomme, Daren Sammy and Roland Cato while conceding just four runs, came too late to affect the final result.

    Thisara Perera smashed a six and a four off Jerome Taylor in the 17th over with Fletcher remaining unbeaten on 47 to get the job done with plenty of time to spare.

    The first Sabina Park fixture of the 2019 Hero CPL had got off to the most dramatic of starts. A scruffy beginning to the over from Obed McCoy was soon forgotten when extra bounce had Chris Gayle nicking behind for a golden duck.

    And things got better still for McCoy in his second over when Chadwick Walton – on the back of a Hero CPL record stand with Gayle in the Tallawahs’ last game – also fell cheaply. He made just 8 before picking out Campbell at deep square-leg.

    That brought Phillips and Powell together, though, and they set about the Zouks bowling. Nobody was spared. Powell struck the first Hero Maximum of the night, straight and true into the sightscreen off Fawad Ahmed, while Phillips was finding the boundary with regularity.

    16 runs came from the final over of the Power Play, with Phillips smacking Kesrick Williams way back over midwicket for his first Hero Maximum.

    Phillips reached his half-century from just 26 balls and at the halfway stage the Tallawahs had raced to 108/2 with the Phillips-Powell partnership worth 81 from just 42 balls.

    It was going to take something special to break the partnership, and de Grandhomme produced it. Powell was millimetres away from reaching his half-century but instead had to depart for 44 as de Grandhomme caught the ball just inside the rope and flicked it in the air before going over the boundary and then stepping back inside to complete the catch and give Fawad Ahmed his first wicket of the night.

    He removed Phillips as well in his next over – a far simpler catch for de Grandhomme this time – before Russell’s injury cast something of a pall over the night’s action.

    Perhaps understandably, the Tallawahs’ innings never really got going again after Russell left the field on a stretcher, with just 38 coming from the final six overs.

    Trinbago Knight Riders blasted the highest ever Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) total – the third time that record has been broken already this season – as they thrashed Jamaica Tallawahs by 41 runs at Sabina Park to return to the top of the table.

    Colin Munro, one of the heroes of TKR’s success last season, celebrated his return to the side with an unbeaten 96, Lendl Simmons smashed 86 and Kieron Pollard 45 not out as fours and sixes flew all around the ground and the Tallawahs paid a heavy price for an error-strewn display.

    The Tallawahs made a brave stab of the chase, with big-hitting pair Chris Gayle and Glenn Phillips exploding from the blocks. There was no other way for the Tallawahs to go, but their progress was checked in the eighth over by a double strike from Mohammad Hasnain, who bowled Gayle for 39 from 24 and then had Chadwick Walton caught behind from a top-edged pull.

    Things got tougher still when Rovman Powell had to retire hurt with what appeared to be an abdominal injury after smashing his second ball over midwicket for six. He had been in discomfort when bowling and didn’t return to the middle. With Andre Russell also sidelined after being hit on the head against St Lucia Zouks, the sight of Powell in such obvious pain will be a worry for the Tallawahs with three more home games to come over the next week.

    Phillips went through to his 50 from just 22 balls having been dropped twice when on 37 but his luck ran out on 62 as he miscued Pollard to deep midwicket where Munro made no mistake.

    Even with the Tallawahs scoring as freely as they were, the required rate had skyrocketed to 17 an over and while the boundaries continued to come for the likes of Ramaal Lewis (37* off 15) and Javelle Glen (34* off 24) so too did wickets as the chase fell away – if indeed a T20 innings can fall away to a total of 226/5.

    It will not be the batting that disappoints the Tallawahs when they come to analyse this defeat, though.

    No-balls and dropped catches cost the Tallawahs dear, with the tone set in the Power Play when Simmons was caught at mid-on off a no-ball. The Knight Riders racked up 65/1 in those six overs and only accelerated from there

    Simmons pulled the second ball of the night behind square-leg for a boundary, before a high wide beat everyone to add five more to the total.

    It would get worse for the home side. Jerome Taylor took 17 balls to complete his first two overs, with three wides and two no-balls in there. Both no-balls proved costly; the free hit after the first was heaved for four by Simmons, but even more importantly he would have been dismissed had Taylor not overstepped a second time, chipping the ball to mid-on and starting to walk off before the umpire’s call saved him.

    In between those two overs, Sunil Narine smacked Green for four and six in successive balls. Three fours – two of them admittedly off thick outside edges – in Oshane Thomas’ first over sent the score racing past 50 without loss.

    Zahir Khan finally made the breakthrough, spinning one back to Narine and beating his attempted sweep. Any thoughts the Tallawahs entertained of regaining some control after that wicket were soon forgotten as the 2018 Hero CPL leading run-scorer Munro strode to the middle for his first bat of the season. His first ball was cut hard for four and his third reverse-swept all the way for a Hero Maximum.

    Simmons was dropped in the deep twice in the 10th over while also picking up his second Hero Maximum of the night as TKR took advantage of their hosts’ generosity to reach 96/1 at halfway.

    A cut for two took Simmons through to 50 from 32 balls in the 12th over, and it was after that the Knight Riders innings truly went stratospheric as 154 runs came from the last eight overs.

    The 13th over, Powell’s last, produced 23 runs. Munro smoked two sixes over the legside, with Simmons adding another with a wristy whip of a shot that screeched hard, low and flat back over the bowler’s head to clear the rope.

    It was the same story in the next as three more sixes rained down on Sabina Park. Munro reverse-swept Zahir for successive sixes as he cruised past 50 before Simmons almost took out a cameraman with the third Hero Maximum of the over.

    The Tallawahs finally saw the back of Simmons in the 15th, but not before another 20 runs were added to the increasingly daunting total. There was an element of farce to the wicket when it came, with Simmons caught in the deep off a free hit after yet another no-ball, Derval Green celebrating the catch before realizing it was a free hit and arrowing a throw in to the bowler’s end to run Simmons out as he attempted a third. He made 86 from 42 in all, with eight fours and five Hero Maximums.

    Again, the wicket did nothing to change the momentum of the innings as Pollard walked in and picked up where Simmons had left off.

    Munro hit Green for back-to-back sixes as a hundred started to look a real possibility, but it was Taylor’s final over – the 18th of the innings – that ensured the record books would be rewritten again. Two more no-balls didn’t help the bowler’s cause one bit as 30 runs came in all. Remarkably, it would have been even worse had Lewis not produced a heroic piece of fielding in the deep to leap high and flick a ball that seemed certain to go for six back into play.

    There was still time for four more four and another six as the partnership finished on an unbeaten 88 in just 5.2 overs. The only slight disappointment for the Knight Riders was Munro selflessly giving up the strike in the final over and finishing just four runs short of a century.

    Upcoming Fixtures: Saturday 14 September – St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v Guyana Amazon Warriors (8pm), Warner Park; Sunday 15 September – Jamaica Tallawahs v Barbados Tridents (12pm), Sabina Park, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v St Lucia Zouks (6pm), Warner Park

    Guyana Amazon Warriors continued to match Trinbago Knight Riders win for win at the top of the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) table after subjecting St Kitts & Nevis Patriots to a trial by spin at Warner Park.

    The Warriors and Knight Riders have both now won four from four after this all-too-easy seven-wicket victory for the Guyanese side.

    Imran Tahir (2/17) and Qais Ahmad (3/28) led a four-man spin attack for the Warriors that reduced the Patriots to 53/5 and, although Shamarh Brooks engineered a recovery of sorts with a well-made 34 from 25, the innings fell away after he departed, seam finally making an impression as Keemo Paul took the last two wickets in the space of three balls. A final total of 121 was never going to be enough and was immediately put firmly in perspective by a 24-ball 49 from Brandon King at the top of the Warriors chase.

    He smashed three fours and a huge Hero Maximum over midwicket from Sheldon Cottrell’s second over to make it clear the Warriors were not about to linger over chasing down their target.

    And when the Patriots tried some spin it didn’t work quite as well as it had for the visitors, with Fabian Allen’s first over taken for 16 – including two more big sixes for King.

    He was run out one short of a half-century from the final ball of the Power Play, but it mattered little. By then the Warriors were already 64/1 and over halfway to their target.

    Shimron Hetmyer toe-ended Mohammad Hafeez to long-off for just a single looking to keep the attack going, prompting Chandrapaul Hemraj and Warriors skipper Shoaib Malik to throttle back and make sure nothing went wrong.

    Hemraj edged behind off Rayad Emrit for a watchful 22, leaving Nicholas Pooran (19*) to apply the finishing touches alongside Malik (24*) as the Warriors got home with 25 balls to spare.

    The start of the game was delayed by a brief rain shower and when play did begin the Warriors had got through four overs and three different spinners before a seamer was seen.

    The tactic paid off, with Devon Thomas bowled by Chris Green’s first ball and just 19 runs on the board after the first four overs from Hemraj, Green and Tahir.

    And even when the quicker bowlers did come on, it was still the spinners making the difference. Evans had stroked four fours in reaching 26 and was looking dangerous when he was superbly run out by a direct hit from Tahir at short fine-leg.

    With the seam bowling of Romario Shepherd and Paul proving relatively expensive, Malik turned to the fourth spinner in his ranks with instant reward as Qais Ahmad had Hafeez caught for 14 by Hetmyer at long-off in his first over. Tahir then trapped Jason Mohammed plumb lbw for just 4 to reduce the Patriots to 51/4 in the 9th over.

    The Patriots took the bold decision to promote left-hander Dominic Drakes to number six in a bid to counter the leg-spin threat on the back of his record-breaking 34 not out – the highest ever T20 score by a number 11 – against Barbados Tridents last time out

    It didn’t work. He was dropped by Hetmyer on nought but caught by Ahmed two balls later to give Tahir a second wicket of an eventful over and sum up a night to forget for the Patriots.

    Upcoming Fixtures: Sunday 15 September – Jamaica Tallawahs v Barbados Tridents (12pm), Sabina Park, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v St Lucia Zouks (6pm), Warner Park

    The Jamaica Tallawahs have announced that Jade Dernbach and Dwayne Smith will be joining them for the remainder of the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

    Dernbach will replace Kennar Lewis who has become unavailable due to personal reasons. Smith will come into the team for Rovman Powell who has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to injury sustained during the Tallawahs match against Trinbago Knight Riders

    Dernbach has played in 24 ODIs and 34 T20 Internationals for England, claiming 70 international wickets in those matches. In the recently concluded T20 Blast he claimed 11 wickets for Surrey at an average of 31.09 and an economy rate of 8.88.

    Smith has some serious CPL pedigree, having scored four hundreds at the tournament, the joint highest by any player. He is the fifth highest run scorer in CPL, having scored 1,584 runs in his 58 CPL matches.

    They have also added Jermaine Blackwood to the team as temporary cover for Andre Russell while he recovers from the blow he received while playing against the Trinbago Knight Riders. Blackwood has played for the Tallawahs in the past and has appeared in 28 Tests and two ODIs for the West Indies.

    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 in identical fashion, failing to get over the extra bounce George Worker was able to extract and slicing catches to point.

    And bounce continued to trouble the Tridents. Leniko Boucher had looked decent for 15 before chipping a return catch to Ramaal Lewis, while Jason Holder got a beauty first up from Zahir Khan that found the shoulder of the bat to give Gayle a straightforward catch at slip.

    JP Duminy was trying to hold things together but when Jonathan Carter holed out to long-off to hand Lewis a second wicket, the Tridents were 70/5 and running out of time and men.

    Enter Ashley Nurse, who shifted the momentum in fine style. He plundered 14 in three balls from Christopher Lamont and two more Hero Maximums off Zahir Khan – accounting for over half of the total runs he conceded in his four overs and made 37 from 17 balls in a 49-run partnership with Duminy.

    They fell in successive deliveries, though, to plunge the Tridents right back into trouble. Duminy slapped Derval Green straight to Lewis at deep cover before Nurse was completely deceived by a slower ball to give former England international Jade Dernbach his first Hero CPL wicket, Gayle holding on to the skied chance.

    Zahir Khan struck twice in his final over with two more googlies, the first trapping Hayden Walsh Jr. plumb lbw and the second even better to beat the edge of the overbalancing Roshon Primus before Phillips whipped the bails off for a smart stumping.

    That left Sandeep Lamichhane and Josh Lalor to scramble the final total up to something approaching respectability in the final 12 balls.

    Gayle and Phillips got the Tallawahs chase off to a quick start, both men finding and clearing the boundary on a regular basis to put 48 on the board in the first five overs. Both fell to Tridents skipper Holder, though, caught in the deep looking to exploit the final over of Power Play fielding restrictions.

    Walsh Jr. then removed Worker and Dwayne Smith lbw in successive balls to give Tridents real hope at 68/4 with 73 still needed.

    That hope was fleeting. Javelle Glen hit Lamichhane for two Hero Maximums in the next over, Walton added another in the next and the momentum was firmly back with the Tallawahs.

    They added 45 together in just four overs before Glen holed out to Hales to give Lamichhane something to show for a difficult day.

    Lewis fell cheaply but the Tallawahs were always in control of things while Walton was at the crease. He finished the match with a six to reach his half-century, which got the Tallawahs home with nine balls to spare and their season up and running at last.

    St Kitts & Nevis Patriots 143/4 (Lewis 65, Hafeez 26, Fawad Ahmed 1/11) beat St Lucia Zouks 138/9 (de Grandhomme 30, Viljoen 28, Jordan 4/33, Usama Mir 2/13, Emrit 2/29) by 6 wickets

    Akeem Jordan took 4/33 on his Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) debut to set St Kitts & Nevis Patriots on their way to a six-wicket victory over St Lucia Zouks.

    Jordan’s are the second-best figures ever for a Hero CPL debutant, and the best since the very first year of the tournament.

    He took a wicket in each of his four overs as the Zouks were restricted to 138/9 from their 20 overs, a total the Patriots chased down with minimal fuss thanks largely to Evin Lewis’ ferocious 65 from 30 balls.

    The Patriots recovered quickly from the early loss of Devon Thomas for just a single, with Lewis and Laurie Evans adding 45 for the second wicket either side of a short rain delay.

    Evans was bowled by a beauty from Fawad Ahmed that spun past the edge into off stump, but Lewis was on a mission.

    Having set the record for the fastest ever Hero CPL half-century earlier in the tournament he became just the second man to score 100 career Hero CPL sixes with the first of his six sixes here. Chris Gayle has 160.

    Lewis dominated a 62-run stand with Mohammad Hafeez that finished the game as a contest, reaching his 50 in just 26 balls with his fifth six, hit high and handsome off Kavem Hodge.

    That started a run of 20 runs in four balls before Hodge exacted a measure of revenge, Lewis finally miscuing one to be caught by Roland Cato on the boundary.

    The Patriots were just 14 short of their target when another flurry of rain forced another short stoppage, but the home side’s celebrations were not delayed for long.

    Mohammad Hafeez fell for a measured 26 with the finishing line in sight, but Carlos Brathwaite finished the job with a huge six - and with a whopping 31 balls to spare – to seal a victory that had looked on the cards ever since that dramatic first Hero CPL spell from Jordan reduced the Zouks to 33/3.

    Jordan struck a key blow in the very first over of the night as Andre Fletcher slapped a short ball straight to Fabian Allen at point. In his next over he picked up an even bigger wicket as the in-form Rahkeem Cornwall sliced one down to third-man where Sheldon Cottrell took a smart catch.

    Hodge got a couple of boundaries away in Jordan’s third over inside the Power Play but then picked out deep midwicket looking for a third.

    Usama Mir got to work in the middle of the innings, dismissing Cato and Colin de Grandhomme while giving up just 13 runs in four expert overs of leg-spin.

    De Grandhomme made 30, while Daren Sammy unleashed a couple of huge Hero Maximums in his 18.

    But Sammy and Kesrick Williams fell to stunning diving catches in successive balls from keeper Thomas – Williams the fourth victim for Jordan – to leave the Zouks 100/8.

    Hardus Viljoen and Obed McCoy added an enterprising 35 for the ninth wicket, but the damage had been done.

    Victory for the Patriots lifts them to third in the Hero CPL table, behind only the unbeaten heavyweight pair of Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders.

    Upcoming Fixtures: Tuesday 17 September – St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v Trinbago Knight Riders (6pm), Warner Park; Wednesday 18 September – Jamaica Tallawahs v Guyana Amazon Warriors (7pm), Sabina Park.

    The Jamaica Tallawahs were charged with a breach of Article 2.5 of the Hero CPL Code of Conduct – Minimum Over Rate Offences – at the end of Match 10 between themselves and the Trinbago Knight Riders on Friday 13th September at the Sabina Park.

    The charge of being one (1) over down was laid by the Match Officials Team against the captain of the Tallawahs, Chris Gayle.

    This was the Tallawahs’ second Minimum Overs Breach of the tournament, following the same charge being laid at the conclusion of Match 3 against the same opponents in Trinidad. As provided for at Appendix 2, Section 4.2 of the Code of Conduct, the applicable monetary fine was imposed on the captain, and the Jamaica Tallawahs team was penalized with a 0.05 reduction in their Net Run Rate.
