Caribbean Premiere League come to an end, after marvelous performance in CPL by six teams today CPL 2016 reached to its final GAW vs JT, as we say always Guyana Amazon Warriors is the first team who enters into finale whereas after losing Playoff 1 Jamaica Tallawahs once again ready to fight with Guyana. On 5th August 2016 Playoff 3, JT vs TKR Jamaica set the target of 196 runs but rain disturbed the game after then according to D/L rule Trinbago got the new target that is 130 runs in 20 over. The score was not easy because 3.0 overs already spelled at the score of 18 runs, well both the team played well but in the end Jamaica Tallawahs won the Qualifier 2 by 19 runs and cleared the rocks to the path of CPL Final 2016.
The fastest ever Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) century by Andre Russell helped the Jamaica Tallawahs defeat the Trinbago Knight Riders in Warner Park to secure a place in Sunday’s final.
Russell came to the crease with his team in real trouble with four wickets down with just 67 runs on the board. His 42-ball hundred meant that his side recovered to 195-7, a total that was always going to be too much for the Knight Riders to chase even after it was reduced by rain.
The Tallawahs were the eventual winners by 19 runs via the Duckworth Lewis Stern method as TKR struggled to get going in their innings as Russell followed up his batting efforts with two wickets.
