Saturday, August 5th – Florida: Jamaica Tallawahs vs. Barbados Tridents (Photo credit: Brandt Williams)

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.

No Andre Russell for CPL T20 this Year!

One of the most favoured and popular Cricketers for CPL season will not be playing this year.

A missed drug test is considered a failed drug test by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Andre Russell failed to file his whereabouts for missed tests in 2015 for 3 occasions. As a result, he is now banned for a year from playing All Cricket by the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission.

Remembering Basil ‘Shotgun’ Williams

Basil ‘Shotgun’ Williams played 7 tests for the West Indies between 1978 and 1979, that included two entertaining centuries. He had an impressive test average of 39.08 and an average of 36.02 in the regional first class game.

He continued with his career in local cricket, including his Captaincy of the Jamaica Cricket team.

HOME AND HAPPY: Jamaica’s victorious cricket team returned home on March 12, 1984 after their thrilling win over the Leeward Island in the Geddes Grant/ Harrison Line Limited over competition in Antigua last Saturday. Photo shows captain Basil Williams with the prized trophy (centre) and manager Bill Bennett (second left).

Shotgun retired from the Jamaica team in 1986 on a high note and remained involved in the sport as a Selector, Board member, Team manager and of course had a few knocks in Club Cricket before he migrated to the US.

Basil ‘Shotgun’ Williams died of a heart attack in Atlanta, Georgia on this day last year, October 2015.

Remembering you always, CAP.

Toni-Ann Williams up for Gymnastics now and CPL Final today!

RIO 2016

Gymnastics

Toni-Ann Williams has started off with a good vault just making a step outside the lines with her landing, scoring 14.1 but made a few mistakes on the uneven bars and another step on her landing, making her score a low 11.533. Hang in there Toni-Ann, more events to come and the top 24 Gymnasts make it to the All-Around. She is currently in 18th place.

Tennis

Venus Williams lost in the 1st round vs. Belgium’s Flipkens in a 3-set tie break yesterday. Venus allowed Flipkens to come back from 4-1 down in the 3rd.


Who won the 1st Gold Medal?

The USA, in shooting. Go figure.

Swimming

Russell made the fastest 100 in CPL history off of 41 balls to help the Tallawahs beat the Knight Riders into the final. They will face the Warriors who beat them the other day to claim their Finals berth.

Will the Warriors lose their 3rd final or will the Tallawahs make history and be the only team to win 2 CPL T20 titles?

The finals will be in St. Kitts today at 6pm Ja time and 7pm St. Kitts time.

Tallawahs Sweep Home Games!

Congrats to the Jamaica Tallawahs for winning 4/4 at home! Last night they beat the Barbados Tridents who opted to field first, by 36 runs.

Thank goodness Chris Gayle has a stronger team this time around, especially since he is injured. He was dismissed early again but Chadwick Walton was the one last night who stepped up and scored 97 with the support of Sangakkara and he won Man of the Match.

The Tallawahs had an all around performance throughout the 4 games here. Well deserved victories.

It was a pleasure to see so many Jamaicans come out and support the Cricket, drinking or not drinking. Well done CPL. For those who actually follow the CPL, the Tallawahs leave home at the top of the table.

There are more matches to be played in St. Lucia followed by Florida who does not have a team and then the Playoffs and Final will be played St. Kitts. The Final will be played on Sunday, August 7. Continue to support the Tallawahs by tuning in to TVJSN, Sportsmax, ESPN Caribbean or any other Sports Channel that may be showing the matches.

You can also follow CPLT20 (@CPL) on twitter to keep up and tweet your support.

The Tallawahs will play St. Lucia next on Saturday, July 30 in Lauderhill, Florida.
