Jamaica Tallawahs wins by 33 runs against Saint Lucia Kings in the first eliminator of the CPL 2022. The journey for Saint Lucia Kings has finally ended but Jamaica Tallawahs will be looking forward to winning their next match against Guyana Amazon Warriors in the qualifiers 2 to face against Barbados Royals in the finals.
The opening contest of the day was as unequal as it possibly could have been, yet there were several unexpected turns in this game. The game may have taken a different turn if Alzarri Joseph had received assistance from the other team, but the Tallawahs remained unrelenting the entire time and earned the victory. They’ll be back, and they’re eager to keep up this momentum when they face the Amazon Warriors in tomorrow’s QF2. It won’t be simple; there will be a fight of spin, and possibly the team that spins the best will win.

Jamaica Tallawahs vs Saint Lucia Kings Match Highlights
Although 130 was a par score, the last two overs were costly for Lucia Kings, and 32 runs in the final two gave Jamaica the advantage. Even if Nabi’s batting performance wasn’t the finest, it was still a solid inning. They needed Charles to come up big today, but it didn’t work out well for him.
Charles has been reliable throughout the season and has demonstrated how excellent a player he has been for the club. It was impressive how Lucia Kings batted in the first six overs in the whole competition. Alzarri has stood out in terms of bowling; he demonstrated why he is so highly regarded and has a bright future ahead of him.
The second-lowest score in CPL 2022 that has been successfully defended belongs to the Tallawahs, who have done so with a score of 148. When they were 47 for 3 and 115 for 8 respectively, it didn’t appear like they were going to win today. However, the 32 runs from the final two overs provided them some momentum, which they then used in their bowling effort. Amir sent the in-form Johnson Charles packing early, and Dickwella went easily as well. However, Faf du Plessis was looking sharp, and it took a lucky break to get rid of him, and they were then entangled in the web of spin.
Because the ball wasn’t spinning and there was dew in the air, Green, Imad, Fabian Allen, and Nabi used a combination of sliders and faster pitches to fool the batters. Alzarri Joseph shown great grit, but he just ran out of allies. Therefore, the Tallawahs and Warriors will face off tomorrow night for a spot in the championship game.
