Warriors end CPL home leg in rampant fashion

Wed, Aug 23, '17

 

Caribbean Premier League

THE Guyana Amazon Warriors ended their home leg of the Hero Caribbean Premier League twenty20 tournament in impressive fashion, whipping the St Lucia Stars by seven wickets last evening at the National Stadium, Providence.

The victory for the Warriors takes them above Barbados Tridents, to fourth in the table and gave them a crucial net run rate boost in the race for a Playoff place.
The Warriors produced a disciplined bowling and fielding effort to restrict a marauding St Lucia Stars to a modest 100-7.
They then overhauled the target in 14.4 overs, with Jason Mohammed hitting an unbeaten 42.

Why are West Indies so poor - and can problems be fixed?

Tue, Aug 22, '17

Commentary

We thought they might struggle. But this badly?

West Indies were beaten by an innings and 209 runs by England at Edgbaston, losing a record 19 wickets in a day.

The entire team, in two attempts, batted for a total of six and a half hours. England opener Alastair Cook managed almost 10 on his own.

To the casual observer, it might have been a surprising margin of defeat.

But, in the words of Test Match Special commentator Fazeer Mohammed: "It was just another day. West Indies are being decimated in a Test in England, like they have been for the past 17 years."

It is natural to compare the current side, who have not won a Test in England since 2000, with great West Indies teams of the past.

The 1980s side that terrified batsmen and bowlers alike was one of a kind. You cannot will a team to be better just because you remember their history fondly.

There are undoubtedly problems in West Indies cricket. But what are they? And how can they be fixed?

Gayle, Lewis pilot Patriots to knockouts

Tue, Aug 22, '17

 

Caribbean Premier League

Chris Gayle (71 not out) and Evin Lewis (69) lit up the Warner stadium to help St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots secure a 37-run win over Jamaica Tallawahs in a Caribbean Premier League game played on Tuesday (August 22). With this victory, Patriots qualified for the playoffs.

In pursuit of 209, Tallawahs ended up with 171 for 7 on the board. Glenn Phillips (31), who is known for his T20 exploits back home in Auckland, and Trevor Griffith (42), tried to make a good fist of the chase, but Tallawahs couldn't up the ante at the right time.

For the hosts, after Jonathan Carter broke the opening stand by prising out Griffith, Tabraiz Shamsi and Mohammad Nabi took over from him by picking up wickets at regular intervals.
