CPL 2021: Trinbago wreck Tallawahs



In one of the most lopsided encounters of the Caribbean Super League so far, Trinbago Knight Riders secured an emphatic win over Jamaica Tallawahs by 75 runs.

Ali Khan ripped through the Jamaican batting lineup as Trinbago Knight Riders secured a comfortable win over the Tallawahs.

Thanks to an outstanding batting display by Simmons, Pollard, and Seifert, the Riders got themselves to a competitive total of 167. 

With 168 runs to get, the Tallawahs were going nowhere in their innings as Ali Khan delivered with the ball.

Rovman Powell’s men could only survive 18.2 overs.

Simmons leads from the front

Lendl Simmons carried Trinbago Knight Riders in the entire innings.

The former West Indies international scored 42 runs off 39 balls, with three fours and one six.

He was caught and bowled by Brathwaite.

The other opener, Leonardo Julien never got going in his innings.

He could only score 17 runs off 25 balls before he fell to Permaul.

With a requirement of acceleration in the innings, Kieran Pollard stepped up as he has done so many times for Trinbago Knight Riders in this tournament.

The Riders captain scored a quick 39 runs off 18 balls, with 4 sixes and a four.

On the other hand, the Riders’ wicketkeeper, Seifert, also ensured maximum support for his captain as he scored 24 runs off 8 balls.

The wicketkeeper hit two fours and two sixes.

The quick-fire innings of Seifert and Pollard got the Riders up to a score of 167/4.

In the bowling department, Migael Pretorius had a day to forget as he leaked 55 runs in his four overs and only got one wicket.

Imad Wasim continued to show why he got selected in the World T20 squad for Pakistan as he conceded only 13 runs off his four overs and grabbed one wicket. 

The Khan show overwhelms Tallawahs

It was the Ali Khan show in the second innings.

The American fast bowler completely extinguished the Jamaican run chase as he took the wickets of both the openers to put his side on the brink of winning.

Haider Ali and Kenner Lewis both got caught behind on Ali Khan’s bowling.

Just a few balls after the Lewis dismissal, another one fell prey to Ali Khan as Brooks was sent back to the pavilion. 

Tallawahs saw three of their batsmen gone with a score of only 9.

Imad Wasim did try to rescue some pride back for Tallawahs but he was soon sent back by Rampaul.

The Pakistani all-rounder scored 11 runs off 7 balls.

The skipper, Rovman Powell was the only shining light of a failed run chase as he scored 22 runs off 20 balls, with a couple of boundaries to his name.

His innings gave the Tallawahs fans something to cheer about.

There were only positives if you want to talk about the bowling side. Jamaica Tallawahs got bowled out for 92, with 10 bowls to spare. 

Ali Khan bagged 4 wickets and conceded just 6 runs in his 3 overs.

Ravi Rampaul was a bit more expensive than he would have liked. However, he did do the job when required and grabbed a couple of wickets.

Sunil Narine was another one who grabbed a couple to ensure that Tallawahs never stood a chance in this match. 

Trinbago Knight Riders 167 for 4 (Simmons 42, Pollard 39*, Imad 1-13, Braithwaite 1-16) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 92 (Powell 22, Braithwaite 14, Ali Khan 4-6, Narine 2-11) by 75 runs.

RCB women overcame UP Warriorz by 23 runs to clinch their third win of the season. The home side outperformed Warriorz in all the facets of the game and emerged victorious. A collective team effort, particularly with the bat, helped RCB women to beat Warriorz for the second time in the season. They now have three wins in their five matches in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy won the toss and opted to field first. Given how things have panned out in the league so far, it needed a great batting performance from RCB to challenge the chasing side. The home side did exactly that. They were full of intent which was lacking in the last few games. Right from the start, S Meghana and Smriti Mandhana smashed the bowlers.

It was the night of the RCB skipper. The Southpaw scored 80(50) in her stay. S Meghana perished after a valuable 28(21). Ellyse Perry batted well and registered her first fifty of the WPL 2024. She was aided well towards the end by Richa Ghosh whose 21(10) propelled RCB to a score of 198 on the board. It was the highest team total in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy’s efforts go in vain

Chasing the daunting total, UP Warriorz were off to a flier. The opening duo of Healy and Kiran Navgire gave a fiery start to the visiting side. When the two were batting in the PP overs, it seemed like the Warriorz could pull off an insane chase. However, Sophie Devine brought RCB back into the game with crucial wickets. At Bengaluru, the home crowd was literally behind the RCB women.

It helped the home side to stay calm and do their job with ease. Sophie Molineux and Asha Sobhana were the pick of the bowlers, who claimed 2/29 each in their spell of four overs. While Healy scored a fifty and Deepti tried her best in the death overs, ten daunting targets could not be chased down. Despite the early hiccups, RCB managed to restrict UP Warriorz to a score of 175 and won by 23 runs.

Praveen Kumar addresses Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer’s negligence of taking part in Ranji Trophy




Praveen Kumar

Praveen Kumar has given his opinion on the preferences of Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer in recent times. The duo did not take part in the Ranji Trophy matches for their respective teams despite being fit. It did not go well with the Indian Cricket Board which landed the duo without a ventral contract which was announced a few days back.

Praveen Kumar has reacted to the issue recently. The former India pacer claimed that he has been of an opinion on the issue for a long time. Praveen felt that one should definitely earn money but not at the cost of neglecting to play for domestic and national teams. The right-arm pacer felt that players today are having a certain mentality which is not good.

The former pacer claimed that the players have a mindset that they can rest for a month before taking part in the IPL, thereby bypassing playing for their national team or the domestic teams. Praveen felt that the players could not resist letting go of money which they could earn by taking part in the IPL and other T20 leagues (For foreign players).

‘Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun’ – Praveen Kumar

“This thing is now firmly in the mind of players. Mai ek mahine pehle rest kar lunga, fir IPL khel lunga. Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun,” said Praveen in the interview. He claimed that youngsters these days are spoilt and are behind money. The former RCB pacer felt that it is not fair on the part of the young players to neglect the country over the IPL.

Kumar felt that a player needs to maintain a balance between playing for the IPL team and for the country. He felt that money is an important factor, but not at the cost of playing for the national team. “But this is not fair at all. A player needs to balance things. Money is important, but this (giving franchise cricket the priority) is wrong,” said the former Indian bowler in the interview.
