Tallawahs dent Red Steel’s chances
Port of Spain, Trinidad – 8th August-2013– The Jamaica Tallawahs overcame a late onslaught from the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel to win their second game of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League.
The win also heaped more pressure on the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel, who remains winless after three games. On Wednesday night though, Dwayne Bravo would have felt he had only himself to blame as the Red Steel edged closer to crashing out of the tournament.
The highlight of the match came in the 19th over of the Jamaica Tallawahs innings when Bravo opted to bowl himself. Danza Hyatt struck the first six, followed by three from Vernon Philander in an over that cost 26 runs.
Before the over, the Tallawahs were 107/6. After the over, they were 133/6. It was little consolation in the end that Bravo struck a quick 29 runs from 24 balls to give the Red Steel some hope
Jamaica Tallawahs – 146/6 – (Danza Hyatt 42 not out, Vernon Philander 21 not out, Chris Gayle 28, Ahmed Shehzad 20).
TT Red Steel – 141/5 (Adrian Barath 32, Ross Taylor 31, Dwayne Bravo 29, Nicholas Pooran 20 not out; A. Russell 2/27)
