Don’t worry Cricket fans, I have not forgotten you.  I just feel a little left out since matches do not come to Jamaica until August 25th!

Florida got quite a few matches this year. My Kingston 21 Suga Bears should check out the Schedule! I know some went last weekend already.

The Teams

Jamaica Tallawahs

Chris Gayle has left the Tallawahs for the St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots! What a tragedy.

We still have Wicket Keeper and Batsman, Kumar Sangakkara though.

We acquired one of the best bowlers in CPL T20, Krishmar Santoki.

We also have a good batsman, Lendl Simmons.

The Coach is former English Cricketer, Paul Nixon.

Barbados Tridents

The Tridents have a decent team with all-rounder, Kieron Pollard, Bowler Ravi Rampaul, Wicket keeper out of Pakistan, Shoaib Malik and New Zealand Batsman, Kane Williamson.

Guyana Amazon Warriors

The Amazon Warriors have a lot of new faces like the Tallawahs.

Familiar names are the Kiwi Batsman, Martin Guptill, Batsman and Wicket Keeper, Chadwick Walton, Batsman and Bowler, Jason Mohammed and Bowler, Veerasammy Permaul.

St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots

The Patriots are coached by former West Indian Cricketer and Coach, Phil Simmons.

Joining Chris Gayle, they have well known, Samuel Badree, Carlos Brathwaite and Pakistani Bowler, Hasan Ali.

They are expected to do well.

St. Lucia Stars

The St. Lucia Stars have Aussie Batsman and Bowler, Shane Warson, Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor and a Bowler from New Zealand, Mitchell McClenaghan.

Trinbago Knight Riders

The Trinbago Knight Riders are stacked! They have the Bravo Brothers, Dwayne and Darren, Kiwi Batsman, Brendon McCullum, Sunil Narine, Denesh Ramdin and popular South Africam Batsman, Hashim Amla.

How is it going so far?

Chris Gayle has the highest individual score of 66 for the Patriots.

Despite all the new faces, the Tallawahs have had a good start. They have the highest Team score of 154/5 and Mohammad Sami has the best Bowling figures of 12/4. Lendl Simmons is batting well too.

Kevon Kooper of the Knight Riders is the highest wicket taker with 6.
