The eliminator of the Caribbean Premier League was played between the St Lucia Kings and the Jamaica Tallawahs. The eliminator took place at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. The St Lucia Kings got their way with the coin and elected to bowl first. The Tallawahs got off to a horrendous start as they lost Brandon and King and Kennar Lewis in the space of 23 balls for not too many on the board.

Shamarh Brooks steadied the innings and brought back the Jamaica Tallawahs in the game he scored a superb 47 from 31 balls, with 1 boundary and 4 sixes. Rovman Powell came and went quickly as Jeavor Royal dismissed him leg before wicket. Then, Raymon Reifer came and played a quick cameo of 25 from 23 deliveries, with 2 fours and one maximum.

Then there was a bit of a collapse as Reifer, and Fabian Allen were dismissed in quick succession by Alazarri Joseph and David Weise. At 104-6, when it seemed that all was going pear-shaped for the Jamaica Tallawahs, Mohammad Nabi came in and turned things around in favour of Jamaica Tallawahs by making a quickfire 31 from 15 balls, with four sixes in that quickfire knock.

This allowed the Jamaica Tallawahs to get to a fighting total of 148-8 in their 20 overs. In the second innings, the St Lucia Kings would have fancied their chances of getting to the total as it was not a massive one. However, the Jamaica Tallawahs bowlers had other plans as they spoilt the party of the St Lucia Kings.

The spin duo of Fabian Allen and Mohammad Nabi combined to make life tough for the St Lucia Kings batters as they gave away no easy runs on offer. They also picked up 3 wickets each in their 4 over spells, which broke the back of the St Lucia Kings’ batting line-up.

The Pakistan overseas duo of Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim scalped two wickets each from their respective spells as St Lucia Kings could not get themselves into the match. They had to surrender to the bowling might of the Jamaica Tallawahs. The St Lucia Kings collapsed to 115 all out in just 18 overs and the Jamaica Tallawahs got a solid 33-run win.
