The Cricket Paper - - OPINION -

A GREAT win against St Lu­cia Stars on Tues­day made us three wins out of four in the Caribbean Pre­mier League and my Ja­maica Tallawahs squad look in good shape.

It’s a busy com­pe­ti­tion, in­deed I’m writ­ing this col­umn as I sit in St Lu­cia air­port, but it’s nice to see our dif­fer­ent guys hit­ting their straps as the tour­na­ment pro­gresses.

The win against St Lu­cia saw An­dre McCarthy hit a bril­liant un­beaten 61. He strikes the ball cleanly and it’s great to see him ex­press him­self. He’s tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity in him­self and that was a high-class in­nings.

Our bowlers also did re­ally well with Mo­ham­mad Sami tak­ing 3-27 while Kes­rick Wil­liams and Rov­man Pow­ell claimed two apiece, which re­ally helped us not let the Stars get too far away from us.We al­ways knew we were in with a chance.

In a way, it wasn’t the worst thing to lose our first game be­cause we saw what was needed to be suc­cess­ful very early on and it brought the guys all to­gether.We have only got bet­ter since then, but it’s a long tour­na­ment and we need to keep this qual­ity go­ing.
