Amazon Warriors v Tallawahs, CPL 2014 semi-final, St Kitts
Amazon Warriors storm into CPL final
ESPNcricinfo staff

Guyana Amazon Warriors 138 for 0 (Guptill 66*, Simmons 71*) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 134 for 6 (Walton 34, Narine 1-17) by 10 wickets


Guyana Amazon Warriors stormed into a second consecutive CPL final with a thumping ten-wicket win over defending champions Jamaica Tallawahs in St Kitts. Amazon Warriors' victory was the first instance of a team winning with a ten-wicket margin in the CPL.

Martin Guptill and Lendl Simmons took less than 15 overs to overhaul a target of 135. The pair got off to a quiet start - the first four overs yielded only 21 runs - but rapidly caught up with the scoring rate within the next few overs. The match slipped away from the Tallawahs between the fifth and 11th overs when Guptill and Simmons smashed 84 runs, bringing the equation down to a comfortable 30 off nine overs.

The unbroken 138-run stand was the third century-opening partnership between the two batsmen in this season of the CPL. Earlier in the tournament, the pair had added 103 against Barbados Tridents and a CPL record stand of 154 against St Lucia Zouks. Simmons was unbeaten on 71 off 43 balls with seven fours and three sixes, while Guptill's 46-ball 66 - his fifth half-century of the tournament - had six fours and two sixes. Simmons' knock kept him on top of the run-scoring chart, with 426 runs in 10 innings so far at a strike rate of 133.12.

Earlier, the Tallawahs innings suffered from a lack of momentum as the middle order failed to capitalise on the start given by openers Chris Gayle and Chadwick Walton. The pair added 55 runs but fell in successive overs at the half-way mark. Andre Russell and Nkrumah Bonner added a quick 35 runs but their dismissals off successive balls in the 18th over meant that the innings lacked big runs at the end.

Amazon Warriors will now play Tridents in the final on August 16.

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




Chris Gayle was left wondering where it all went wrong for the Tallawahs while Ravi Rampaul and the Tridents sprinted into the CPL final © LatinContent/Getty Images


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.

Warriors, Tridents clash in CPL T20 final


Story Created: Aug 15, 2014 at 9:08 PM ECT
Express

Trinidad and Tobago will be well represented in today’s Limacol Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 final as T&T skipper Denesh Ramdin will lead the Guyana Amazon Warriors against T&T teammate Kieron Pollard, who captains the Barbados Tridents.

The two sides meet at Warner Park in St Kitts from 4 p.m. for the CPL title and a place in this year’s Champions League T20. The big-hitting Tridents, who boast T&T players Ravi Rampaul, Rayad Emrit, Akeal Hosein and William Perkins among its line-up, will be looking to replicate their group stage form and make the most of their week-long preparation.

However, the Warriors are equally confident following their demolition job of the Jamaica Tallawahs in the second semi-final on Thursday.


Ramdin’s team, which also includes T&T players Lendl Simmons (the leading run-scorer in the competition) mystery spinner Sunil Narine and pacer Navin Stewart, defeated the Tallawahs by ten wickets with more than five overs to spare to reach today’s final.

Pollard said they are up against a quality team and will have to be at their best if they want to come away with the trophy. “The Warriors played very well (Thursday night), but I am not worried. We will do our preparation and get ourselves ready for playing them, but we are going to concentrate on our strengths rather than worry too much about theirs,” said Pollard.

“They beat us at home a few weeks ago, so we know we will have to bring our ‘A Game’ on Saturday to win. They do have dangerous bowlers in the form of Narine and (Krishmar) Santokie, however, when the bad ball comes, we will look to capitalise on it and it should be an exciting match,” he added.

The Tridents also welcomed their week long break which was their reward for topping the six-team standings to book their place straight to the final. “Preparations have been good this week and we have welcomed the break after playing so many games in quick succession at the end of the group stages,” said Barbados Tridents coach, Robin Singh.

“We have some players who have done really well throughout the tournament such as Jason Holder and Kieron Pollard, but we will be looking to prepare all of our players to be their best in the final,” Singh added.

Ramdin said the Warriors are wary of the batting strength of the Tridents’ but is confident his bowlers can handle the pressure and deliver victory. “The Tridents have a very strong batting line up and the toss again will be crucial. There are two good teams in the final, both playing well, and whoever handles the pressure better, will win,” said Ramdin.

“Santokie and Narine have been bowling well so we will also be looking for them to carry their good form into tomorrow’s (today) match,” he added.

It is the second time the Warriors will be in the CPL final and they will be hoping to avoid making the same mistakes they made last year which saw them lose to the Tallawahs. “This time around we will be looking to produce our best cricket when it counts,” said Guyana Amazon Warriors coach Roger Harper.

“We will not necessarily be looking to do anything different to what we have done previously in the tournament, but we will think about the Barbados Tridents and fine tune our plans so we are ready,” Harper added.

Nine Trinis to feature in CPL final
Published: Guardian
Saturday, August 16, 2014
 
 

Guyana Amazon Warriors captain Denesh Ramdin, left, squares off against Kieron Pollard, skipper of Barbados Tridents, yesterday ahead of today’s Limacol Caribbean Premier League finals at Warner Park in St Kitts.

T&T Red Steel is back home but Trini interest in the Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 remains keen, as nine players from the country will be present at the final at Warner Park, St Kitts, today. Trinidadians Keiron Pollard leading the Barbados Tridents will oppose Denesh Ramdin leading the Guyana Amazon Warriors in front of a packed house, to see who comes away as kings of T20 cricket in the region.

Barbados Tridents include Ravi Rampaul, Rayad Emrit, William Perkins and Akeal Hosein, while Ramdin will have with him Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine and Navin Stewart. Pollard said: “The Warriors played very well last night, but I am not worried. We will do our preparation and get ourselves ready for playing them, but we are going to concentrate on our strengths rather than worry too much about theirs. “They beat us at home a few weeks ago, so we know we will have to bring our A-Game on Saturday (today) to win. They do have dangerous bowlers in the form of Narine and (Krishmar) Santokie, however, when the bad ball comes, we will look to capitalise on it and it should be an exciting match.”

Ramdin said, “After last night’s game, the players who did not get a chance to bat yesterday will be working hard in the nets today (yesterday) so we are all fully prepared for tomorrow’s (today) final. Santokie and Narine have been bowling well so we will also be looking for them to carry their good form into tomorrow’s (today) match.” Barbados Tridents coach Robin Singh said, “Preparations have been good this week and we have welcomed the break after playing so many games in quick succession at the end of the group stages. We have some players who have done really well throughout the tournament such as Jason Holder and Kieron Pollard, but we will be looking to prepare all of our players to be their best in the final.”

On being asked how they will try to do things differently from last year’s final, where they lost in the last over, Guyana Amazon Warriors coach, Roger Harper said, “This time around we will be looking to produce our best cricket when it counts. We will not necessarily be looking to do anything different to what we have done previously in the tournament, but we will think about the Barbados Tridents today (yesterday) and fine tune our plans so we are ready for tomorrow (today).”

A number of T&T fans are here in St Kitts and will make an appearance at the ground today, with the majority of them supporting the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Action begins at 4 pm and in an Island with a population of around 50,000—nothing much other than cricket will be the attraction.

TEAM: Barbados Tridents: Keiron Pollard (capt), Akeal Hosein, Ravi Rampaul, Ashley Nurse, Jeevan Mendis, Kyle Mayers, Shoaib Malik, Jason Holder, Jonahan Carter, Neil McKenzie, Shane Dowrich, Raymon Reifer and Kirk Edwards.

Guyana Amazon Warriors: Denesh Ramdin (capt), Sunil Narine, Veerasammy Permaul, Ronsford Beaton, Steven Jacobs, Jimmy Neesham, Lendl Simmons, Krishmar Santokie, Navin Stewart, Chris Barnwell, Robin Bacchus, Rayon Griffith, Martin Guptill and Leon Johnson

For all the crap Anil was talking, look how many Trinis is the final. This CPL has "destroyed" or attempted to  "destroy" all island insulaties which I have not seen in a long while. Hooray for 20/20. It is a short but exciting tournament.

The match has been called off and the Tridents are celebrating all around. Spare a thought for Guyanese, they played their heart out through out the tournament. Needing 46 off 25 deliveries to wreck on a probable victory, Warriors was going well until rain poured down at worst possible time and shattered Guyanese dreams.

Shoaib Malik has been adjudged Man of the Match for his valuable 55 runs. Thanks for all your feedbacks throughout the tournament, this is Thilak Gowda signing off on behalf of Kumar Chandan Duorah, take care. Cheers!

Agony continues and its drizzling. We have a match on our hands and hope its another passing shower. News coming in is that Guyanese are 8 runs behind the par score as per D/L method

Rain...


Trini Tridents win... D/L method...

Congrats to the two best Captains...

Special one for Polly ...

Absolute bullshit!  The pitch was uncovered, lights were on and no rain was falling for the last 20 minutes....couldn't they have played 4 overs in that time?? :cursing: :cursing: 

Anyways.....with Pollard, Smith and Holder playing for their respective IPL teams, I can't really see this Tridents team causing any headaches in the Champions league next month...

TRIDENTS IN THE RAIN
Amazon Warriors lose CPL final on D/L method


Story Created: Aug 16, 2014 at 9:55 PM ECT
Express

The Barbados Tridents defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors by eight runs on the Duckworth Lewis method to win a rain-affected 2014 Limacol Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 final and a place in this year’s Champions League T20.

The Tridents batted first and made 152 for six off their 20 overs thanks to half-centuries from Dwayne Smith (59 off 52 balls) and Shoaib Malik 55 off 42 balls).

For the second straight year, the Guyana Amazon Warriors were left heartbroken following the final after they were restricted to 107 for four after 15.5 overs when rain intervened for the fourth and final time in what was an anticlimactic end to the match.

When the Tridents were asked to take first strike, they suffered two early losses when Kirshmar Santokie sent back William Perkins in the first over and then Jason Holder in the third.

Both Holder and Perkins failed to get off the mark but half centuries from Dwayne Smith and Shoaib Malik as well as 18 extras from the Amazon Warriors made up for the early Tridents setbacks.

The pair battled through a couple of rain delays to put the innings back on track, taking the score from eight for two in the third over to 96 for three in the 13th.

Smith, who struck three sixes and six fours was brutal to pacer Ronsford Beaton who was dispatched for 17 runs in his first over.

Sunil Narine had better luck against the Bajans, striking with the final two balls of his first over to send back Smith and then Tridents skipper Kieron Pollard for a first ball duck with the score on 96 for four after 13 overs.

Malik then stepped up with a six and a four off Santokie in the 19th over to bring up his half century.

That over went for 15 and the final over bowled by Beaton went for 16 as the Tridents got themselves to a competitive total.

It was never smooth sailing for the Warriors who lost an early wicket when Martin Guptill departed in the third over.

The Warriors then lost the leading scorer in the competition, Lendl Simmons for just 20 off 26 balls in the ninth with the score on 49 and needed something special to get themselves back into contention.

Mohammad Hafeez tried to give them impetus with a 27-ball 28 which included two sixes and a four but he skied a Jason Holder delivery to Rayad Emrit as they slipped further behind at 74 for three off 12.2 overs.

Jimmy Neesham gloved one behind three balls later and the Tridents were in full control right up until the final rain delay that saw the match and the Amazon Warriors’ hopes end prematurely.
