Russell steals victory from Amazon Warriors
Story Created: Aug 2, 2014 at 9:31 PM ECT

 Andre Russell blasted a huge six off the last ball of the game to crown an amazing half-century, as Jamaica Tallawahs snatched an exciting six-wicket victory over Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League yesterday.

In a rematch of last season’s final, the defending champions, Tallawahs, chased down 138 to pull off a win that seemed unlikely when they slipped to 62 for four in the 14th over, with the required run rate climbing to nearly 14 an over.
Russell, however, changed the course of the game with an amazing unbeaten 58 from just 24 balls, with three fours and six towering sixes.

His most important blows came from the last two balls of the Sabina Park contest, with Tallawahs needing ten to wins after seamer Jimmy Nee­sham had conceded just three runs from the first four deliveries of the final over.
Russell creamed the fifth ball, a full toss, over cover for four, and with six needed from the final delivery, smote a length ball several rows back over long-on to ignite frenzied celebrations among the packed house.
The right-hander put an invaluable 76 for the fifth wicket with Owais Shah, who struggled for his unbeaten 21 from 28 deliveries, including a six.
Pakistani off-spinner Mohammed Hafeez bowled brilliantly, taking two for 13 from his four overs to strangle the Tallawahs top order and account for captain Chris Gayle for 22 from 23 balls and Jermaine Blackwood for six.

Opener Chadwick Walton had earlier skied a return catch to left-arm seamer Krishmar Santokie to fall for five in the third over with the score on 15, and when Australian Adam Voges holed out in the deep off off-spinner Steven Jacobs for 12 in the 14th over, Amazon Warriors were fancying their chances.

Entered Russell to transform the game. He cleared the ropes at mid-wick­­et with left-arm spinner Veera­sammy Permaul for his first scoring shot and Shah joined him two balls later, whipping the bowler over long on for another six, as the over leaked 16 runs.
Russell then ripped apart fast bowler Ronsford Beaton in the 17th over that went for 19 runs, smashing sixes from the first two balls before clipping a stray one backward of square for four.
With 27 needed from the last two overs, Russell drove Santokie straight for four and then lifted his countryman over long-on for a massive six before staging his heroics in the final over.
Earlier, Amazon Warriors stuttered to 137 for nine off their 20 overs after they were sent in, with Neesham top-scoring with 35 and opener Lendl Simmons getting 34.

Fast bowler Jerome Taylor was once again superb, taking three for 14 from his four overs while seamer Rusty Theron finished with two for 38.
Amazon Warriors failed to find part­nerships, with a 40-run, sixth wicket stand between Neesham and Chris Barnwell (23), being their best.

Tanvir delivers first win for Zouks
Story Created: Aug 4, 2014 at 8:35 PM ECT
 \\\\\  GROS-ISLET

A handy all-round performance from Sohail Tanvir and a crucial innings from Henry Davids were the main ingredients that propelled St. Lucia Zouks to their first victory of the Caribbean Premier League over Antigua Hawksbills by five wickets under the Duckworth-Lewis Method on Sunday.
Tanvir followed up his typically miserly left-arm swing bowling with 20 not out to make him a shoo-in for the Man-of-the-Match award and Davids hit the top score of 43, as the Zouks broke their dry spell and successfully chased a victory target of 106 in their rain-affected match at the Beausejour Cricket Ground.
Tanvir fittingly formalised the result with 15 balls remaining, when he launched Hawksbills captain and West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels, bowling his off-spin darts, for successive sixes over deep midwicket.
The result meant that the hosts collected two points, following six successive losses like their opponents, who are now the only winless side in the six-franchise competition, which now moves to St. Kitts for its ultimate conclusion over the next two weeks.
Tanvir grabbed three for 15 from his allotted four overs, as the Hawksbills posted an unthreatening 103 for six from their rain-reduced 16 overs.
After the start was delayed for close to half-hour, there was a second interruption during the ninth over of the Hawksbills innings that forced the reduction in the maximum number of overs for each side.
Danza Hyatt led the way for the Antigua-based side with 26, Samuels was not out on 21 and with all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite, not out on 20, added 32 from the last three overs to get the Hawksbills over the 100-run threshold.
Tanvir trapped Ben Dunk for a two-ball duck in the first over and Mervyn Matthew had Devon Thomas caught at mid-off for two, leaving the Hawksbills six runs for two wickets in the second over.
Shacaya Thomas came to the crease and with fellow Jamaican Hyatt started to make the scoreboard tick over, but he was caught at deep midwicket off Shane Shillingford’s off-spin for 10 to trigger a period of instability in the batting.
Hawksbills wobbled to 71 for six in the 13th over, and they required Samuels and Brathwaite to bat out of their skins in the closing overs to get a respectable total.
Gavin Tonge then set the Zouks back early, when he had Andre Fletcher caught at mid-off for two in the second over and Keddy Lesporis taken at third man for one. In between, Brathwaite trapped Johnson Charles for 11 and the Zouks were under pressure on 21 for three in the fourth over.
Sunil Ambris was joined by Davids and eased the tension with a cool stand of 46 for the fourth wicket before he was run out for 17 in the ninth over.
Davids then took charge, striking three fours and one six from 35 balls to put the Zouks firmly on track before he was caught at long-on off left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell with 10 needed – but Tanvir made sure there was no need to panic.
The Zouks face Jamaica Tallawahs in their penultimate match this coming Saturday at Warner Park, where the Hawksbills meet Guyana Amazon Warriors two days earlier for their penultimate match.

Summarised scores:

ANTIGUA HAWKSBILLS 103 for six off 16 overs (Danza Hyatt 26, Marlon Samuels 21 not out, Carlos Brathwaite 20 not out; Sohail Tanvir 3-15)
ST LUCIA ZOUKS 108 for five off 13.3 overs (Henry Davids 43, Sohail Tanvir 20 not out; Gavin Tonge 2-12)
--St Lucia Zouks won by five wickets under D/L method.

CPL T20 Is Marketing Opportunity For Federation, Says Springer

by Glen Bart

The Caribbean Premiere League (CPL) T20 cricket matches will be held at Warner Park on St. Kitts.

As the countdown to the Caribbean Premiere League (CPL) T20 cricket matches nears its end, Senior Sports Officer Vernon Springer invites the nation to be a part of the international event.

In just a few days, St. Kitts and Nevis will host matches of the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals, bringing with them all of the excitement and expectations of the 20-over cricket game, and a worldwide marketing opportunity.

The CPL T20 is a creation of the West Indies Cricket Board and is being sponsored this year by Limacol. Thirty matches are being played, up from 24 matches in the inaugural year.

Springer, who has been intimately involved in the preparations for the games, says that the Federation was in a special position leading up to its ability to successfully bid for the finals. He indicated that the “uniqueness of Warner Park” was a significant draw because of its “infrastructure,” but just as important, he said, was the hosting of several critical tournaments of the West Indies Cricket Board.

“In 2012, we hosted the West Indies Under-15 Tournament and in 2013 the West Indies Under-19 Tournament,” he said. “During that time, we would have had international cricket; West Indies women’s cricket – all in the build-up to what is happening.”

Springer says that these events set the stage in support of the bid, plus “the $4 million investment in the best lighting to be found anywhere in the world.”

“When the organizers came in October-November of 2013 and saw the completion of the stadium lights, as well as the lighting in the Len Harris Cricket Academy practice area, plus our general infrastructure, they all contributed to us being able to host nine games,” said Springer, adding, “For some people, it’s a puzzle. They would say, ‘Well, your stadium holds only about 10,000 people, how could you host a final?’ But we know that the money is not in the game (gate receipts) but in television rights.”

“Internationally, close to 72 million people would be looking at the matches in St. Kitts and Nevis,” he explained. “The matches have been scheduled to accommodate viewership internationally. Our gate receipts in the Caribbean cannot pay for the CPL. CPL makes its money from television production.”

As part of the arrangements, on each match day St. Kitts and Nevis will be showcased for five minutes around the world. “Put a value to that,” he challenged. “A 30-second Super Bowl ad costs millions of dollars. No government budget could pay for something of that nature. For five minutes each day, CPL has organized its media group that will be looking at the history and the stories of St. Kitts and Nevis to show to the entire world. That is priceless.”

Speaking of the recent attention to Warner Park’s cricket activities, Springer said, “In one month, no other cricketing nation in the Caribbean has hosted 11 international games. Nine days after CPL, on Kim Collins Day, August 25, West Indies would be playing Bangladesh in a 50-over day/night game at Warner Park, and then two days later, they would be playing a night game. So that in one month, one nation, one venue would be hosting international cricket games. That is a tremendous achievement,” said Springer.

He said that several factors combine to make St. Kitts and Nevis an attractive venue for cricket matches, including “the infrastructure, the organizational level, the atmosphere of Warner Park and the hospitality that the organizers receive.” But he also contends that cricketing history and much of the “hard work has helped to make the Federation a first-class option.”

“St. Kitts and Nevis has been earmarked as a cricketing destination simply because our counterparts in Nevis have produced, per capita, in the world, many international test players,” he added. “Even though St. Kitts has not produced one, as yet, it is still a recognition of the work put into the development of Warner Park.”

“When the government designed the concept of Warner Park, we always looked around at our competition to see what was happening in regional venues; what were some of the shortcomings of some of these venues,” he explained. “We did our homework to understand what were the issues of the players. Plus, we are competing with countries with bigger populations, so you must have something unique to win over other people.

“If you look at the size of Warner Park, you would realize that it is ideal for T20 cricket, because it is spectator friendly,” he added. “Everything is intimate as compared to many of the other venues, which are larger and harder to control. With T20 cricket, with about three hours of play, that’s what is needed. And, it’s a party.”

In spite of the fact that television rights are “where the money is,” it is still important to fill seats, because “it creates the atmosphere, the excitement that makes people want to watch,” Springer pointed out, saying, “We are hoping that based on our marketing and the work that has been done that we are going to sell out the Warner Park Cricket Stadium.

“We have done some serious marketing in the United States,” he said. “Right now, it’s difficult to get into St. Kitts during the CPL period. We have huge interest coming out of St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Anguilla. There is even the possibility that one of the local ferries may go up to Montserrat. I travel to Antigua and Guyana and there is a serious buzz about people coming here, because there is this inquisitiveness about what the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis have to offer. Plus, the Rick Ross concert is, in itself, triggering much interest in other islands.

“When you look at the cost of the tickets, nowhere else in the world can you pay EC$20 to see a double-header of international cricket stars,” Springer explained. “That’s almost a giveaway, and based on our marketing, I am confident we’ll fill the stadium. I guarantee you that.”

On the matter of volunteers needed to successfully host the CPL games, Springer indicated that he recruitment was “going exceptionally well. We have had a resounding success in the program. For the CPL, we were catering for 100 to 120 volunteers. We have exceeded that quota.”

He added that local entrepreneurs would benefit from the games. “A lot of local people are going to benefit. Vendors are going to benefit tremendously. When the CPL folks were here, there were about 30 vendors who had signed up to serve alcoholic beverages, food and other things.

“There is also going to be a lot of after-parties,” he added. “Lots of folks have put out their posters for after-parties. The Guyana Amazon Warriors are travelling with close to 400 supporters; the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel coming with over 400 supporters, and those fans are looking for action, for parties, and some of the after-parties have already been booked out.”

Springer indicated that spectators are going to have a good time. “On the grounds, there has been the reintroduction of the Party Stand, that is now bigger, and we’re looking to have about 1,000 to 1,500 spectators slotted into that area – foam, swimming pools, international DJs from all around the Caribbean.

“There is the VIP area being built because there was a huge demand for VIP boxes,” he continued. “We have 16 boxes in the Warner Park Cricket Stadium; all are gone. So, we have to build this area to accommodate between 225 to 250 persons. Corporate St. Kitts and Nevis and the Caribbean have responded well to the Limacol CPL edition.”

One other important upgrade to the stadium is the addition of ramps and elevators to accommodate spectators in wheelchairs, plus a specially built area for viewing the matches.

Springer said many persons have helped to make the CPL a reality for St. Kitts and Nevis, but commended a few individuals and entities.

“This has been a long journey, and I want to give some credit to the chairman of the local organizing committee, Mr. Arthur Sharpe, and his entire hard-working committee,” he said. “Commendations go, also, to head groundsman Steadroy Douglas and specialist Thorn Phillip, of the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club, who have worked tremendously to get the outfield ready.

“Kittitian Hill and the Royal St. Kitts Golf Course people also have been really helpful in bringing the outfield up to standard,” said Springer, who then extended an invitation to all Kittitians and Nevisians to “experience the CPL first-hand.”

Red Steel battle Tridents
Thursday, August 7 2014

The Limacol Caribbean Premier League arrives in St Kitts this week with the business end of competition set to begin.

Ahead of today’s matches which see the Guyana Amazon Warriors take on Antigua Hawksbills at 4pm and Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel play Barbados Tridents at 8pm, players and coaches spoke about how their team was faring.

Tridents’ captain, Kieron Pollard, is liking what he is seeing from the team, stating: “We have a good chemistry at the moment and here in St Kitts it is truly crunch time, so we have to deliver tomorrow (today) and on Sunday. It will not be easy, but we have the heart and the drive to do well.”

Australian born Simon Helmot, coach of the Red Steel, spoke about St Kitts. “Warner Park is truly a fantastic ground and it adds another dimension to what the Caribbean is all about. I have coached in the IPL and in Australia and I must say the Caribbean is the best.”

Meanwhile, one of cricket’s most exciting batsmen, Kevin Pietersen, arrived in St Kitts yesterday to prepare for his debut with St Lucia Zouks.

Ahead of back-to-back matches against the Tallawahs and Amazon Warriors, Pietersen spoke about how much he enjoys playing cricket in the Caribbean and the positive impact the CPL will have on the game.

“I love playing cricket in the Caribbean and I’m really looking forward to experiencing the atmosphere and passion the crowd can generate within Warner Park. There aren’t many other grounds in the world that have a party stand with a swimming pool in it!”

Guyana Amazon Warriors v Antigua Hawksbills, CPL 2014, St Kitts
Samuels' record effort not enough for Hawksbills

ESPNcricinfo staff
August 7, 2014

Guyana Amazon Warriors 212 for 5 (Guptill 90, Ramdin 51) beat Antigua Hawksbills 193 for 3 (Samuels 106*, Peters 67*) by 19 runs

Marlon Samuels scored the fastest ever century in the CPL and combined with Orlando Peters for the highest partnership in CPL history, but both accomplishments were recorded in vain as the Antigua Hawksbills lost to the Guyana Amazon Warriors by 19 runs at Warner Park in St Kitts. The Hawksbills fell to 0-8 in the season and have one game remaining, against Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel, to see if they can avoid the ignominy of being the only team to finish winless in CPL 2014.

The Amazon Warriors authored a record of their own by becoming the first team in CPL history to score 200 in an innings, eventually finishing on 212 for 5 after being sent in to bat. However, that mark could tumble a few more times prior to next weekend's tournament final thanks to the short boundaries at Warner Park, where replacement balls were needed early and often for the number of deliveries smashed over the ropes and out of the stadium. A total of 27 sixes were registered in the match.

The Hawksbills' frustrating season may be best encapsulated by the seventh over bowled by Miguel Cummins, who overstepped on four consecutive deliveries to begin the frame. The first legal ball was smashed for six by Martin Guptill, who had already hit Cummins' third no-ball for six earlier in the over. On what should have been the second legal ball, Cummins overstepped again with Guptill taking a single to make it 19 runs off only one legal ball. Guyana ended the 23-run over on 75 for 2 and their run rate never dipped below 10 runs per over for the remainder of the innings.

Man-of-the-Match Guptill powered the Amazon Warriors innings by making 90 off 51 balls, including seven fours and six sixes. He teamed with captain Denesh Ramdin to add 114 for the third wicket as Ramdin also did his share of damage with 51 off 34 balls. Guptill fell midway through the 17th over but there was little reprieve for the Hawksbills attack as Christopher Barnwell cracked four sixes of his own in the final overs and finished unbeaten on 37 off 20.

David Hussey was moved up the order to open with Ben Dunk in a bid to get the Hawksbills off to a quick start but the move failed to pay off with Dunk going for 3 off 6 balls and Hussey falling in the fifth over for 13 off 14 to make it 31 for 2. Danza Hyatt's miserable CPL continued when he was dismissed for a duck in the sixth over by Veerasammy Permaul thanks to a fantastic one-handed leaping catch by Jimmy Neesham in the covers.

It was at this stage that Peters joined Samuels at the crease and they would not be separated for the rest of the game, adding a CPL record 161-run unbeaten partnership. Peters ended on 67 off 45 balls but it was Samuels who stole the show with an extraordinary display of clean hitting. He brought up his 50 in 29 balls in the 12th over but immediately called for treatment to wrap up what appeared to be a left groin strain. Samuels' injury resulted in his only being able to take the safest of singles when sharp running was needed to keep pressure on fielders.

His second fifty was scored in just 21 balls, despite eight of those deliveries resulting in no runs off the bat, thanks to three fours and six sixes struck in that stretch. The effort might have been good enough for an improbable win had it not been for Sunil Narine, who stunted Antigua's momentum at every opportunity during a brilliant spell of 4-1-16-0 in a match where most other bowlers were punished.

Antigua entered the final over needing a mathematically impossible 42 runs to win. Samuels hit sixes off the first three balls to bring up his century off 50 deliveries and raised his bat in sheepish fashion. It was a silver lining to the Hawksbills dire 2014 campaign but not enough to change the stoic, forlorn expression from the face of Hawksbills team mentor Sir Vivian Richards.

Kevin Pietersen is delighted to arrive in St. Kitts to make his Limacol Caribbean Premier League debut

By: CPL, Press Release

It is a tight ground, and that means lots of fours, sixes and wickets, which is what the fans want to see. CPL is about entertaining cricket and bringing the best players from across the Caribbean and combining them with some of the top overseas players to put on a show that fans across the West Indies deserve. I cannot wait for this weekend.”

Caribbean Premier League T20
Red Steel runs cold again
Published: Guardian
Sunday, August 10, 2014
Vinode Mamchan

T&T Red Steel received the biggest upset of the 2014 Limacol Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament last night, when they lost to the previously winless Antigua Hawksbills at Warner Park in St Kitts.

The Red Steel failed again with the bat and was dismissed for just 113 runs and although their bowlers put up a good fight, the Hawksbills were able to get over the line, for their first win in ten CPL T20 matches, dating back to last year.

With 26 runs needed off 16 deliveries, the Red Steel were still in the game but Carlon Brathwaite with three successive sixes brought home the win, as the Hawksbills finished on 114 for five off 18.3 overs. This loss has seriously weakened the Red Steel’s chances of making it directly into finals, as winners of the group stage. They now lie in second position and will hope that the Tridents defeat the leaders Tallawahs today, to give them an outside chance. If the result doesn’t go their way, then they will enter into the play-offs.

Marlon Samuels with 23, David Hussey 24 and Brathwaite with 20 off four balls were able to get their team a consolation win, as they finish the tournament with one win. Red Steel bowlers did perform but the batting was horrible.

Earlier, from the toss it all went wrong for the Red Steel as Marlon Samuels won the toss and immediately asked the T&T boys to take strike. He also announced that they were here to spoil the party and this represented the mood of his men, as they came out fighting from ball one.

The first legal ball of the match saw the big Irishman Kevin O’Brien edging to wicketkeeper Devon Thomas for a duck. After this, early strike the experienced Ross Taylor would have been the one to stabilise the innings but it did not happen.

The right-hander fell leg-before to Australian Ben Laughlin for 16 and from that point there was a steady movement of men in red from the pitch to the dug out. The Bravo brothers, stars so far in this tournament fell within 17 runs of each other and when the opener Evin Lewis finally fell, the effort was as good as over.

The left-handed Lewis played an uncharacteristic innings but it was one that was forced on him, due to wickets tumbling at the other end. His hand of 38 took 36 balls and included one six and two fours.

Kevon Cooper playing his 100th T20 match remained at the end unbeaten on 11, when the scoreboard flashed the sorry sight of 113 all out off 17.3 overs. Laughlin, whose father Trevor played Test cricket for Australia ended with his best performance of the tournament—three for seven. Cottrell took 2/14 and Justin Athanaze 2/25.

Hawksbills stun Red Steel for first win
ESPNcricinfo staff

Antigua Hawksbills 114 for 5 (Hussey 24, Gabriel 2-16) beat T&T Red Steel 113 (Lewis 38, Laughlin 3-7) by five wickets

Antigua Hawksbills completed a day when the CPL's table-toppers were undone by those bringing up the bottom. After St Lucia Zouks upset current leaders Jamaica Tallwahs, Hawksbills pulled off their first win of the season to prevent Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel from going clear at the top.

Things went well right from the start for Hawksbills, as they won the toss and then struck on the first ball of the match, with Sheldon Cottrell getting rid of Ireland's Kevin O'Brien. The other Red Steel opener Evin Lewis put together a couple of partnerships as he top scored with 38, but Man of the Match Ben Laughlin made big breakthroughs to derail the innings.

Laughlin dismissed New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor and Red Steel captain Dwayne Bravo, before offspinner Justin Athanaze sparked a lower-order collapse with two strikes in two balls in the 15th over. From 88 for 4, Red Steel lost six wickets for 25 runs in 21 balls to be bowled out for 113. This was the second time their fancied batting had floundered in three days, after having capsized for 105 against Barbados Tridents on Thursday.

Faced with such a small target, Hawksbills were never really in trouble in the chase, but it wasn't entirely a cakewalk either. After the experienced pair of Marlon Samuels and David Hussey had hit 20s, it came down to 27 off the final three overs, with six wickets remaining. Carlos Brathwaite finished things off with a flourish, smashing three sixes in a four-ball 20 that confirmed the win in 18.3 overs.

Guyana Amazon Warriors v St Lucia Zouks, CPL 2014, St Kitts
Amazon Warriors crush Zouks by eight wickets
ESPNcricinfo staff
August 10, 2014

Guyana Amazon Warriors 194 for 2 (Simmons 97, Guptill 66) beat St Lucia Zouks 189 for 7 (Fletcher 78, Charles 62) by eight wickets

A 154-run first-wicket partnership between Martin Guptill and Lendl Simmons ensured the Guyana Amazon Warriors made easy work of the St Lucia Zouks' 189 for 7 in an eight-wicket win for the Amazon Warriors on Sunday at Warner Park in St Kitts. The total represented the highest successful chase in the two-year history of the Caribbean Premier League.

The stand between Guptill and Simmons broke the CPL first-wicket record that was set only hours earlier by Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher, who added 139 at the start of the match after the Zouks were sent in to bat. The Zouks had a chance to nip the Simmons-Guptill partnership in the bud but Simmons was shelled by Liam Sebastien at long leg in the second over off Tino Best with the opener yet to get off the mark.

Simmons presented two more chances, on 45 and 64, with neither taken and eventually finished with 97. Guptill was caught on the boundary by Kevin Pietersen off Best for 66 in the 16th over while Simmons missed out on a century by unselfishly running himself out in the 19th over as Guyana hurried toward the target in a bid to boost their net run rate. Guyana got there with an over to spare and succeeded in jumping past the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel into second place on net run rate with both teams at 6-3.

Finishing second would allow Guyana to avoid having to play in the initial playoff match which will be staged between the third and fourth placed teams on the CPL table. The first place side after the regular season will receive a bye to automatically advance to the championship match.

At the halfway point of the first innings, the Zouks looked primed to end the season with three straight wins thanks to the stand produced by Johnson and Fletcher, who made 62 and 78 respectively. Navin Stewart came on late to bowl a crucial two-over spell which claimed both men two balls apart in the 16th over just as each batsman was setting up for a strong finish. Stewart also dismissed Kevin Pietersen in the 18th courtesy of a spectacular one-handed leaping catch by Guptill on the long-on boundary and finished with 3 for 22.

Ronsford Beaten conceded just eight runs in the 19th and three wickets fell in the 20th bowled by Krishmar Santokie to further dent St Lucia's chances of setting a target in excess of 200. Guyana's fielding and death bowling was sharper overall and by the end of the match it was the difference between the two sides, allowing the Amazon Warriors to come away with the win.

Simmons brilliance flattens Zouks
Published: Guardian
Monday, August 11, 2014
BASSETERRE, St Kitts—In-form opener Lendl Simmons narrowly missed out on three figures as Guyana Amazon Warriors completed the highest ever run chase in the Caribbean Premier League, to beat St Lucia Zouks by eight wickets yesterday.

Set an imposing 190 for victory at Warner Park, Amazon Warriors reached their target with an over left, with Simmons run out for 97 in the penultimate over of the game.

Scores: ST LUCIA ZOUKS 189 for seven off 20 overs (Andre Fletcher 78, Johnson Charles 62, Darren Sammy 22; Navin Stewart 3-22, Krishmar Santokie 2-39) GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS 194 for two off 19 overs (Lendl Simmons 97, Martin Guptill 66) He counted five fours and eight sixes in an electrifying knock that consumed just 60 balls, and which erased any doubt about the result.

The Trinidadian put on an enterprising 154 for the first wicket with New Zealander Martin Guptill who slammed 66 from 47 balls, as Amazon Warriors hardly put a foot wrong in pulling off their six win of the tournament to move to 12 points.

The result was a heartbreaking one for Zouks who were hoping to at least finish their luckless preliminary campaign on a high. With just two wins under their belt and long eliminated from playoff contention, Zouks were scenting a third win and second of the weekend when openers Andre Fletcher and Johnson Charles hammered half-centuries to get their side up to 189 for seven off 20 overs.

Fletcher smashed 78 from 49 balls including five fours and five sixes and Charles, 62 from 46 deliveries, in adding an upbeat 139 for the first wicket, after they were sent in. Charles started in high gear, lifting off-spinner Mohammed Hafeez to mid-wicket for one of his three fours and following up with a similar stroke for the first of his three sixes, as the second over of the game cost 12 runs.

Fletcher followed suit, clobbering Santokie for a straight six in the next over before crunching another two boundaries in the Jamaican’s next over.

They combined to take a six each off Simmons’ third over of medium pace which leaked 17 runs, carrying Zouks past the 100-run mark in the 12th over.

Both batsmen eventually succumbed to leg-side catches in Stewart’s first over, the 16th of the innings, triggering a slump that saw six wickets fall for 46 runs. (CMC)

New Zealand’s Martin Guptill pulls off stunning catch to dismiss Kevin Pietersen
FOX SPORTS August 11, 2014 10:40AM 0

KEVIN Pietersen just can’t take a trick at the moment.

Just months after having his international career ended in acrimonious circumstances, the England exile has been dealt another harsh blow after being the victim of a spectacular catch on the boundary in the Caribbean Premier League.

Playing for St Lucia Zouks in the West Indies’ lucrative Twenty20 competition, Pietersen cleanly struck a ball from Navin Stewart that looked like it would sail over the boundary for another six.

But Guyana Amazon Warriors batsman Martin Guptill put paid to those plans, leaping into the air and plucking out the ball with a one-handed catch just inside the boundary.

Guptill’s sensational piece of fielding was matched only by the hilarious assessment of the catch by his fellow Kiwi Danny Morrison in the commentary box.

Guptill went on to play a starring role with the bat for Guyana, smashing 66 runs off 47 deliveries to help his side successfully chase down the target of 190.

Pietersen’s dismissal for seven continues his run of indifferent form since essentially being made a global gun for hire following his sacking by England.

The controversial South African-born batsman has already had stints in the Indian Premier League and England’s county T20 competition this year, and recently signed a lucrative deal with Melbourne Stars to play in the Big Bash League for the next two seasons.

Topsy turvy day in CPL

By: Loshaun Dixon, SKNVibes.com   

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – The two top teams of the 2014 Caribbean Premier League were defeated by the two teams at the bottom of the standings in front of a packed Warner Park Cricket Stadium in Saturday’s games of that competition.
After the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel’s defeat to the Barbados Tridents on Thursday the Jamaica Tallawahs had an opportunity to seize the coveted top spot versus the second from bottom St. Lucia Zouks. The top place team at the end of the preliminary rounds earns an automatic spot in the finals.

In that game, a strong bowling performance from the St. Lucia Zouks restricted the second place Jamaica Tallawahs to 143 all out.
Mervin Matthew led the Zouks charge as he finished with figures of three for 15 from his four overs to limit the strong Tallawahs batting line up.

After a cautious start from Captain Chris Gayle, his fellow opener Chadwick Walton look to lay the foundation for the other batsmen.  Gayle was however dismissed for a mere three runs which started a slide of Jamaican wickets at regular intervals.

Following Gayle’s departure Walton kept up his momentum of scoring before being dismissed by Liam Sebastian for 48. His dismissal then led to a flurry of Tallawahs’ wickets that restricted them to 86-5 from 12 overs
Some late order contributions from Juan Theron and Dave Bernard pushed the Tallawahs to a respectable 143.

In their turn at the crease the Zouks looked at ease chasing the Tallawahs target with Andre Fletcher and Kevin Pietersen steadying the ship following the early fall of Johnson Charles.

When both batsmen were however removed lbw to Theron and Andre Russell pressure built up on the Zouks dressing room.

However some power hitting from Sohail Tanvir who cracked 20 from seven balls steered the Zouks to a seven wicket victory.

Following the game Tallawahs coach Mickey Arthur claimed the game was a wakeup call for his side.

“This was a good wake up call for us ahead of the knockout games next week. Despite how the match went for us today, I am happy with where we are at the moment and the senior players have had a really positive influence. It just wasn’t our day."

Zouks coach Matthew Maynard  hailed his bowler’s effort earlier in the day.

“It is not meant to be for us this year in the competition but there is plenty to play for still ahead of next year. We executed our bowling strategies much better today and that was seen in Mervin Matthews’ performance, which was magnificent.”

Matthews was named Man of the Match for his bowling effort.

In the second game the Antigua Hawksbills earned their first victory of the tournament as they defeated the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel.
The Red Steel were limited to 113 all out from their allotted overs. A fine bowling display from Ben Laughlin who picked up three wickets for seven runs to lead the Hawksbills charge.

The Red Steel batsmen were however guilty of some poor shot selection during their innings. The stand out performer in the Red Steel innings was Evin Lewis who anchored the innings with 38 from 36 balls but was also a victim of poor shot selection.

Antigua on the other hand laboured to their target of 114 despite a good start from captain Marlon Samuels who was promoted as an opener following his performance in the last game.

After Samuels departure the Hawksbills innings failed to gather any momentum but was stabilised by David Hussey and Orlando Peters.
When Peter fell to a Kevon Cooper slower ball and Hussey was dismissed lbw to Kevin O’Brien the Hawksbills were heading down a familiar path of getting close but not being able to complete the victory.

Needing 26 for victory from 18 balls Hussey’s replacement Carlos Brathwaite smacked three huge sixes off his first three balls to all but end Red Steel hopes of a victory. The winning runs came in the 19th over of the pads of Devon Thomas to finally put a smile on the Antiguan faces.

In the post-match briefing Hawksbills coach Tim Nielsen was relieved to bow out of the competition with a victory.

 “It is just nice to finish with a win as no team wants to lose all its games in any tournament. We bowled well today and did not panic when we were under a bit of pressure with the bat.”

Simon Hemlot Coach of the Red Steel on the other hand expressed concern about his team’s batting ahead of the knockout stages.

“We are still in a good position as we have qualified for the final week of the tournament. However, our batting display today, and in our last match, is of real concern.”

Tridents whip Tallawahs to clinch spot in CPL final
ESPNcricinfo staff
August 10, 2014

Barbados Tridents 175 for 8 (Pollard 63, Theron 4-35) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 87 (Bonner 47, Mendis 2-15) by 88 runs

Spearheaded by captain Kieron Pollard's 63 off 36 balls, the Barbados Tridents produced a stunning performance to knock off the Jamaica Tallawahs by 88 runs on Sunday night at Warner Park in St Kitts. On a dramatic final day of the CPL 2014 regular season, the Tridents catapulted from fourth place into first to earn a bye through to the tournament final based on having the best net run rate after finishing deadlocked at 6-3 with the Tallawahs, Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel and Guyana Amazon Warriors.

A loss for the Tridents would have left them in fourth place at 5-4, leaving them needing two wins to reach the final. That fate has now been transferred to the Tallawahs, who could have clinched first place outright with a win. Instead, the nosedive they took on net run rate in a losing effort means they will have to beat the Red Steel in the first CPL play-off match on Wednesday followed by another win 24 hours later against the Amazon Warriors in order to reach Saturday's final.

Pollard's decision to bat first after winning the toss was met with a good amount of criticism from the game's television commentators, particularly because teams batting first had managed to win just seven of 26 games on the season heading into the match. The choice was vindicated in emphatic fashion as the Tridents recorded the CPL's largest margin of victory by runs with the captain leading the charge.

Dwayne Smith got the Tridents off to a solid start, bashing 32 of the game's first 35 runs before falling in the sixth over to Daniel Vettori thanks to a tremendous catch from Andre Russell, who covered 30 yards running across from long-off to take a skied chance at long-on. Shoaib Malik and Raymon Reifer fell cheaply a few overs later and when William Perkins was caught behind off Rusty Theron in the 14th over for 36, the match was evenly balanced at 98 for 4.

Pollard and Jeevan Mendis then produced a 57-run stand for the fifth wicket, with 38 of the runs coming off Pollard's bat as the captain put his stamp on the game. The Tallawahs seemed to have the Tridents held in check at the 16-over mark with the score 124 for 4, but Pollard erupted for a four and two sixes off Russell in the 17th as part of a 20-run over and brought up his half-century off 28 balls in the process.

Mendis was run out for 17 to end the 18th over before Rusty Theron nailed the stumps to remove Pollard and Kyle Mayers off consecutive deliveries to end the 19th to make it 161 for 7. Jason Holder cracked two sixes in the final over before falling to Russell for 12 as the Tridents ended on 175 for 8. Theron ended up with figures of 4 for 35.

Considering that the Guyana Amazon Warriors chased 189 earlier in the day with relative ease on the same pitch in the small confines of Warner Park, doubts still lingered as to the wisdom of Pollard's decision at the toss. The Tridents bowling unit turned in a sterling performance to ensure Pollard's efforts with the bat did not go to waste.

Ravi Rampaul struck a major blow in the second over of the chase, striking Chris Gayle low on the pads with a full inswinger to remove the Tallawahs captain leg before for 1. His opening partner Chadwick Walton joined him in the dugout one over later for 5 when the keeper Perkins pulled off an extraordinary one-handed diving catch down the leg side.

The Tridents focused effort in the field continued with the run-out of Adam Voges for 10 in the eighth over before Owais Shah missed a sweep to the legspin of Mendis and was struck in front of the stumps for the second lbw dismissal of the innings to make it 54 for 4. Russell was the only player left with the kind of muscle needed to get the Tallawahs back into the game but a brilliant diving catch by Mayers running in from long-on removed Russell for 4 and sparked euphoric cries in the field.

Nkrumah Bonner scored 47 at number three, but he and Voges were the only two to reach double figures for the Tallawahs as the tail was wiped out in quick time. Theron was caught on the boundary off Ashley Nurse for 3 to end the game as the Tallawahs were bowled out for 87 in 15.3 overs, the lowest total by any team in this year's CPL. The Tridents now have five days to bask in the glow of Sunday's win while the Tallawahs have 72 hours to dust themselves off and regroup for Wednesday's play-off encounter with the Red Steel.

CPL viewers learn more about St. Kitts-Nevis from PM

Basseterre, St. Kitts, August 11, 2014 (SKNIS)  --  Millions of international viewers who watched the most recent six matches of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 tournament got a glimpse of the heritage and culture of St. Kitts and Nevis, but on Saturday (August 09) they also heard about the success story of the twin-island Federation.
Prime Minister the Right Honourable Dr. Denzil Douglas was interviewed by CPL commentator Michael Haysman during the broadcast of the Hawksbills-Amazon Warriors game. He was congratulated for serving four terms in office and was asked about the CPL and how it fits into Government’s agenda.
Prime Minister Douglas highlighted the tremendous opportunities for tourism that can be gained and added that direct flights by carriers such as American Airlines and British Airways make travel access easier. The Prime Minister said the CPL was a very important showcase tool for St. Kitts and Nevis as it highlights the country’s development to viewers around the world.
Arnold and Denise from Pretoria, South Africa are getting a firsthand view of the games and the development. They are visiting the island for two weeks and while admittedly they are not avid cricket fans there was an attraction to attend the matches on Sunday.
“It’s nice; it’s lively,” Arnold said, citing the shortened format as a personal preference. “The music, the atmosphere, it’s been very nice.”  Denise agreed and the couple’s friend Darren, who has lived here for the past 11 years, said she has been enjoying herself immensely. “She’s been dancing in the stands,” he revealed. “She’s never danced Kittitian music in her life. We have to teach her to wuk up,” he joked, referring to the colloquial term for gyrating the hips.
“I like the island and I will tell people to come,” Arnold emphasized while his wife said she was impressed with the infrastructural development. “It’s much more developed than I thought, it is really nice,” she concluded.
Mark, a chef at Montpelier Plantation Inn in Nevis and his friend Peter also attended the games on Sunday. Mark also commented on the transformation of the country.
“What I’ve seen is a lot of the roads being built, a lot of construction, people are getting good jobs …” he stated. “I think (the government) is doing a good job considering the situation in the global economic climate. You are doing well.”
The two gentlemen are from England and live in Nevis. Mark for 16 years while Peter and his wife migrated seven years ago. They were among scores of people who travelled to St. Kitts via boat to enjoy the CPL.
“The grounds and the facility are great. It looks good and it is a very special place to visit well done to St. Kitts and Nevis,” Mark stressed. He reflected on similar venues in England and said Warner Park “is just as equally good but there is a lot more atmosphere and a lot of fun here and that’s what we like.”
Peter shared that “we like St. Kitts as well as Nevis. We love both islands. We like the differences and we like cricket too.”
The cricket continues at Warner Park on Tuesday (August 12) with an All-Star Charity Match dubbed Beefy’s Bash. Players confirmed to participate include Darren Gough, Matt Maynard, Mickey Arthur who will play on Ian Botham’s team. Confirmed for Brian Lara’s squad include Courtney Walsh, Sir Curtley Ambrose, Ian Bishop, Desmond Haynes and Graeme Swann. The match begins at 7 p.m.
