Gayle leads Jamaica Tallawahs to first CPL title

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Another exhibition of power hitting by captain Chris Gayle and the consistent Andre Russell guided the Jamaica Tallawahs to a commanding seven wicket win over the Guyana Amazon Warriors that gave them the first hold of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League Saturday night.

The pair smashed an unbeaten 62 from 34 balls as the Tallawahs rattled up 129 for three in 17.3 overs in reply to the Warriors' 128 for five off 20 overs. Gayle finished unbeaten on 47 off 48 balls with six boundaries, while the belligerent Russell stroked 33 off 18 balls including five fours and one six.

Earlier Chadwick Walton hit a six and one boundary in nine balls before going leg before wicket to Tillakaratne Dilshan for 13 and Kumar Sangakkara lofted Christopher Barnwell for James Franklin to run in and take a catch low down when the Sri Lankan was on 13.

The only other Tallawah wicket to fall was that of Jermaine Blackwood for three. He was deceived by a slower delivery from Lasith Malinga whom he offered a tame return catch.

Sent in to bat, the Guyana Amazon Warriors were choked in the front end of their innings languishing on 46 for two after 10 overs. They lost William Perkins caught at mid off by Danza Hyatt from a David Bernard Jnrd elivery for 14 and the prize wicket of Dilshan who played on to a sharp in swinger from Bernard Jnr without scoring.

Lendl Simmons who started uncharacteristically slow top-scored with 40 off 44 balls with three fours and two sixes before holding out to Kumar Sangakkara trying to launch Nikita Miller over long off.  Simmons featured in a 50 run partnership with Denesh Ramdin who contributed 29 from 34 balls including two fours and one six.

The Amazon Warriors innings got a much needed boost as James Franklin and Christopher Barnwell realized 20 runs in the final over bowled by Chris Gayle. Franklin was undefeated on 17. He faced nine balls and struck two sixes in the final over. David Bernard Jnr., was the most successful bowler for the Tallawahs with two for 18 off four overs.

Chris Gayle (Jamaica Tallawahs) was named man-of-the-match, Krishmar Santokie, (Guyana Amazon Warriors) man-of-the-series and Sheldon Cotterell (Antigua Hawksbills) — future star.

Wellington-Based Company Invests in Caribbean Cricket

Wellington-based Oceanic Holding International Limited (OHIL) is set to become a big hit in the Caribbean after making a significant investment in the Jamaica Tallawahs Twenty20 cricket team, a leading side in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Continuing their successful partnership with Facey Telecom, one of the largest distributors of mobile handsets in the Caribbean and Central America, OHIL is about to launch a new international mobile brand, XOX Mobile, which is a founding sponsor of the Tallawahs.

Wellington businessmen Locky Mulholland, Tonis Focas and Craig Beedell directors of OHIL, are delighted to have joined forces with such a high-profile, elite sports team. “We are really excited to be investing in the Jamaica Tallawahs, which is XOX’s first sponsorship involvement anywhere in the world,” Locky explained. “The two brands are so similar it makes perfect sense: they are both new, fun, exciting, bold and very, very cool.

“Jamaicans live for cricket and it’s no surprise that the Tallawahs have become an instant hit, particularly as they are captained by the world’s most exciting batsman, Chris Gayle. Jamaica has also always been a forerunner in the Caribbean cellular phone market, which is why it’s the ideal venue for the initial launch of the XOX brand. The international rollout will happen over time and the brand will become very involved in communities and sports in each country.”

The Caribbean Premier League has got off to a spectacular start in its inaugural season, with many of the world’s biggest international stars joining local heroes and coaches to turn it into a thrilling tournament. Big businesses and celebrities are queuing up to get involved with the CPL, such as Hollywood heavyweight Gerard Butler, who announced earlier this week that he is also investing in the Jamaica Tallawahs. While XOX products won’t hit the shelves until the first quarter of 2014, taking a stake in such an exciting venture ensures that the brand will be in excellent company right from day one.

Second Hollywood actor buys into CPL franchise

KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) -A second Hollywood actor, Gerard Butler, has taken an equity interest in a Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise, Jamaica Tallawahs, as the tournament heads for a climax this weekend.

Butler, who stars in a number of top movies such as Law Abiding Citizen and The Ugly Truth, is also planning to be in Trinidad on Friday to support the Tallawahs when they play Barbados Tridents in the second semi-final.

Gerard Butler and Paul Ryan

“It is obvious that this tournament is the home of the greatest party in sport so I wanted to get in on the fun,” said Butler. 

“Having said that, as a Scotsman I definitely have an appreciation for cricket and I also recognise that the LCPL is a great combination of sports and entertainment.  I’m excited about joining the Jamaica Tallawahs franchise, and hopefully being a part of the team that wins the inaugural tournament.”

Tallawahs squeezed out a last ball, three wickets in over Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel in the final preliminary game at Sabina Park Sunday night.

They ended the League with 10 points, equal with top ranked Guyana Amazon Warriors who had a better net run rate.

“We are thrilled that Gerard has seen the enormous potential of the Limacol CPL and has taken an equity interest in the Jamaica Tallawahs,” said Limacol CPL Chief Executive Officer Damien O’Donohoe. 

“I think more people are realising its global appeal, and how it is an experience like no other”.

Last month organizers announced that Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg, known for his starring roles in films such as ‘Boogie Nights’ and ‘Planet of the Apes’, had taken an equity interest in the Barbados Tridents team.

Butler’s next movie‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’, comes out in 2014. 

 “Celebrities owning sports teams is nothing new but to have two Hollywood actors taking a vested interest in cricket teams is quite novel,” said Ajmal Khan, Chairman of Verus International and Founder of the Limacol CPL.

“I think it’s a testament to the quality of the tournament, the carnival party atmosphere, the music, the entertainment, the fans, and the experience that only the Caribbean can deliver”.

The inaugural Limacol Caribbean Premier League began on 30 July in Barbados, and concludes on Saturday in Trinidad.

'We Will Get Better' - Philander Says Jamaica Tallawahs Moving From Strength To Strength

Jamaica Tallawahs' fast-bowling all-rounder, Vernon Philander, says even though the team has won its last three matches in the Limacol Caribbean Premier League, there is still room for improvement.

Philander, who has played lead roles in the team, recording three wins in four matches, said this is evident in the batting and bowling figures of the team, which while good enough to win, need to be worked on.

"Though we are winning, I still believe there is still a lot of room for improvement," said Philander.

"If you look at our bowlers, we can definitely bowl more balls in the right areas, and looking at our batsmen, we can still rotate the strike better and try to get more runs, especially at the start of our innings.

"However, having said that, I think all in all, we are getting there and heading into our home matches. I think we will get better."

Jamaica Tallawahs, who will play their first home match tomorrow - a return-leg fixture against the Guyana Amazon Warriors at Sabina Park - have been showing steady improvement since losing their first match to the Warriors at Providence Stadium in Guyana.

WINNING PERFORMANCE

Led by a Man-of-the-Match performance from Philander, who claimed three for 16, they were able to get the better of the Antigua Hawksbills by seven wickets, also at Providence.

The Tallawahs then went to Queen's Park Oval where, on the back of a Man-of-the-Match performance from Danza Hyatt, they were able to eke out a five-run win over the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel.

Gaining momentum, they then ventured to Beauséjour Stadium, where backed by a Man-of-the-Match performance of 47 not out from André Russell, they were able to beat the St Lucia Zouks by six wickets last Saturday night.

Philander, who entered the tournament with 16 Tests, eight one-day internationals and seven Twenty20 internationals under his belt, said he enjoys the chemistry within the team.

"I think it is a good unit to fit in," he said. "The guys are really gelling well together and when you are in a team where the guys are gelling, you are going to do well.

"In fact, it is one of reasons why I believe we are performing so well."

CPL 2013: Jamaica Tallawahs beat St Lucia Zouks by 6 wickets

Beausejour (St Lucia): Aug 11, 2013

Andre Russell smashed an unbeaten 47 from 19 balls with three fours and four sixes to pilot Jamaica Tallawahs to a six-wicket win over St Lucia Zouks in the Twsenty20 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) played at the Beausejour Cricket Ground.

Needing 143 for victory the Tallawahs achieved their target off 17.3 overs on Saturday, reports CMC. Vernon Philander was not out on 18 off five balls with one four and two sixes. His fifth wicket partnership with Russell yielded 41 runs off 11 balls. Captain Chris Gayle, who was the fourth wicket to fall in the second ball of the 16th over hit 40 from 31 balls including two fours and three sixes.

Tallawahs lost Ahmed Shehzad caught behind by Andre Fletcher off Garey Mathurin for 11, Nkrumah Bonner was caught by Darren Sammy attempting to pull Nelon Pascal when he was on five and Danza Hyatt was caught by Fletcher driving at Sammy when 13.

Gayle held out to Liam Sebastien at deep mid-wicket off Shane Shillingford as the Tallawahs started their final onslaught.

Zouks, desperate for a victory at home, decided to bat first. Fletcher, their leading scorer of the competition attempted to cut a ball that was too close to him and Carlton Baught Jnr pulled off an easy catch behind the stumps. Fletcher made two runs and the Zouks lost their first wicket with just 10 runs on the board.

Misbah-ul-Haq, promoted at number three, pushed outside the off stump to Philander and was caught at first slip by Gayle for one.

Herschelle Gibbs and Tamim Iqbal brought some stability with a partnership of 48 for the third wicket. Their stand ended when Gibbs went run out for 22. Iqbal then added 52 for the fourth wicket with Sammy, before he was eventually stumped by Baugh Jnr for 75 in the 18th over. Iqbal faced 62 balls and struck six fours and three sixes.

No other Zouks batsman got into double figures. Philander was the most successful bowler for Tallawahs with two for 31, while Dave Bernard Jnr, Russell and Muttiah Muralitharan got a wicket each.

The result left the Tallawahs in a strong position to qualify for the play-offs with three wins from four matches, while the Zouks are in danger of elimination being at the bottom of the table with two points from five matches losing all their home fixtures in the process.

Brief scores:

St Lucia Zouks 142 for 7 in 20 overs (Tamim Iqbal 75, Herschelle Gibbs 22, Darren Sammy 26; Vernon Philander 2 for 31) lost to Jamaica Tallawahs 146 for 4 in 17.3 overs (Chris Gayle 40, Andre Russell 47*) by 6 wickets.

Man of the Match: Andre Russell

Video: Jamaica Tallawahs beat St Lucia Zouks in CPL

Andre Russell smashed four sixes in a 19-ball 47 to take Jamaica Tallawahs home by six wickets with 15 deliveries to spare against the St Lucia Zouks on Saturday (August 10).

The win lifted Jamaica to second position in the Caribbean Premier League behind the Barbados Tridents while St Lucia stayed bottom after their fourth loss in five matches.

St Lucia Zouks cricket team were looking for their second win in the Carribean Premier League, made a stuttering start in front of their home fans.

The opposition were Jamaica Tallawahs and they bowled well, as Andre Fletcher and Misbah-ul-Haq were both back in the pavilion within the opening five overs.

Tamim Iqbal and Herschelle Gibbs started to build and Tamin scored 75 off 62 balls, including three sixes, to see St Lucia finishing their innings on 142 for 7 in their 20 overs.

Evidently, this was not an easy wicket to score quick runs on.

For Jamaica there was the occasional flash from Chris Gayle on the crease, but he was largely subdued by his high standards.

Wickets soon fell, including that of Gayle and the visitors were 105-4.

But Andre Russell smashed 47 off just 19 balls with four sixes and the Tallawahs picked up the victory by six wickets with 14 balls left.

Jamaica Tallawahs ready for LCPL

SRI Lanka spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan is ready to set the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (LCPL) T/20 Tournament alight as he and his Jamaica Tallawahs teammates had their final preparation yesterday.

The team is expected to leave the island today en route to Guyana, for their first match against the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the inaugural LCPL tournament in the Caribbean.

"We have a mix of young and senior players and we have a good chance because T/20 as we all know is about expressing yourself on the day," said Muralitharan, at a press conference at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel yesterday.
Muralitharan, one of four international franchise players on the Jamaican team, believes the slow wicket in Guyana will be to his liking.

"Spin will play a big part in this series. We have a good spin attack with Nikita Miller and Chris Gayle, unless the wickets will be flat. But other teams have good spin bowlers as well," noted Muralitharan, who has over 800 Test wickets and 534 One-Day International wickets.

The Tallawahs team also has two South Africans in Jacques Rudolph and the exciting all-rounder Vernon Philander alongside Ahmad Shahzad of Pakistan.

The Jamaican team will be captained by Chris Gayle and includes Andre Russell, Andrew Richardson, Danza Hyatt, Carlton Baugh, Nikita Miller, Chadrick Walton, Jermaine Blackwood, Dave Bernard Jnr, Akeem Dewar and Nkrumah Bonner.

Englishman Paul Nixon will coach the Tallawahs with Junior Bennett his assistant.

Some of the biggest stars in international cricket, including Australian Ricky Ponting (Antigua Hawksbill), Bangladeshi Shakib al Hasan (Barbados Trident), New Zealand's Ross Taylor, Shaoib Malik, Umar Akmal (Barbados Trident) and Mohammed Hafeez of Pakistan are among 90 players contracted to play in the league, with each franchise team comprising 15 players.

The other competing teams are Antigua Hawksbills, Barbados Tridents, Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel and St Lucia Zouks.

The Tallawahs were treated to brunch yesterday by sponsors Pegasus Hotel, Facey Commodity (XOX), Wray and Nephew, and Chase Ramson through its brand Foska Oats before departing for a practice match at Sabina Park against a select team.

Kathryn Silvera, Foska Oats' advertising and marketing manager, said her organisation was excited to be involved with the Jamaican team.

"This is a perfect partnership as Foska Oats, manufactured here in Jamaica by Caribbean Foods Limited since 1966, has been supporting the development of sports in Jamaica for close to 50 years," said Silvera.

"It can be argued that T/20 cricket has raised the bar in terms of fitness level. Strength, speed, agility and reaction time are now necessary from all players on the team. In this Foska Oats is a natural fit, with our carbohydrate content, vitamins and minerals, Foska Oats has what it takes to fuel the high energy needs of the Jamaica Tallawahs," she noted.

Meanwhile, Nicola Madden-Greig, Jamaica Pegasus' Group director of marketing and sales, said the promotion of the city of Kingston as a premiere destination for sports, culture and entertainment is the main mandate of the hotel association, and the Jamaica Pegasus fully stands behind this premise.

"Jamaica Pegasus Hotel is a Jamaican icon and has long been synonymous with cricket. It has been the cricket home for the West Indies team for numerous years and has hosted many other local, regional and international teams and cricket-related events," she noted.

"It was no effort therefore on our path to get involved with this pioneering effort to bring to fruition the Caribbean Premier League. It is a bold step in cementing the continued growth and development of the sport and coming on as an official sponsor for the Jamaica Tallawahs was an easy decision," Madden-Greig added.

Erick Barclay, Facey Telecom, development director said XOX is a new international mobile brand, that will bring modern, high tech and affordable mobile service to the local market with the emphasis on smartphones and tablets.

"The Caribbean Premier League promises to provide a thrilling spectacle of cricket throughout the region. This sponsorship provides an excellent opportunity for XOX to promote its arrival in the market and we look forward to a successful tournament over the coming weeks," said Barclay.
