The Jamaican Tallawahs defeated the Saint Lucia Kings by 55 points, achieving their second consecutive victory and maintaining their hope of securing a knockout spot in the Caribbean Premier League.
The Kings rank third in the standings, and all teams still have two group matches to play.
As a result of another brutal Kennar Lewis game, Tallawahs started with a lightning start, and he scored 56 goals with just 24 balls. Lewis received strong support from Shamarh Brooks because Tallawahs won 78/1 in the PowerPlay game at Warner Park.
Although the wickets fell in the Tallawahs game, they managed to maintain a fast scoring rate through mid-level contributions. It was Imad Wasim who pushed Tallawahs to more than 200 points with 10 games, including 27 games, including three consecutive hits in 20 games.
The Kings’ chase started equally fast, with Andre Fletcher and Mark Dejar both scoring quickly, and they scored 79/1 in the first six games.

Roston Chase and Deyal completed 66 runs with only 32 balls, but both fell into Carlos Brathwaite within the space of two balls, allowing Tallawahs to return to the game.

As the Kings’ chase faded away, the Tallawahs took two more wickets in two goals, and the Tallawahs won.
In another game, Trinbago Knight Riders defeated the Barbados Royals with 6 wickets.
The Cavaliers chose to play first, which seems to be a good decision because the Barbados Royals are limited to double digits. Opener Kyle Meyers was the only batsman to score any significant points in the game against the deadly Cavaliers bowling lineup.
Since the total number to be chased is so low, the Cavaliers could have imagined their chances, but they were afraid early because they lost two wickets in Power Play. However, Colin Munro won them in the end.

The Barbados Royals changed their batting order in the last game and achieved great success. Therefore, seeing Meyers start again, 12 goals 24 points smooth opening is not surprising.
However, this will be the highest score because the Cavaliers use spin to cancel the Royals. Harry Pierre, Aker Hussein and Sunil Narien worked together to repel seven of the nine wickets, including key hitters Glenn Phillips and Jason Holder and Azam Khan.
Trinbago Knight Riders started their chase. They lost Lendl Simmons’ wicket to Mohammad Amir, which forced the team to play more cautiously.
Munro, Darren Bravo and Tim Seifert carefully arranged the game. Despite losing four wickets, the Cavaliers finally won an easy victory because Munro’s 41 did not go out.
