And so the elusive win has come at last for one team; not for the St Lucia Stars but for the Jamaica Tallawahs.

Jamaica Tallawahs 204/5 (20.0 Overs)

St Lucia Stars 183/8 (20.0 Overs)



 The Tallawahs have reclaimed their position at the top of the table after a losing streak of three matches. An all-round performance helped them to bag a comprehensive 21-run victory.

The intent was visible right from the start as Glenn Phillips (17) and Johnson Charles (34) cut loose. Kennar Lewis batted at almost run-a-ball but it was Rovman Powell and David Miller who upped the ante in the death overs to take the team beyond 200.

Kesrick Williams was the pick of the bowlers for the St Lucia stars, picking up three wickets at an economy of little over 8.

The St Lucia Stars changed their batting line up a bit, promoting Mark Chapman up the order. However, the move did not work out as he was dismissed by Oshane Thomas.

Despite three 40s from David Warner, Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons coming at a relatively brisk clip, a lot of work was left to be done even after they were dismissed.

Credit to some superb bowling by skipper Andre Russell (3-15-2), Jamaica Tallawahs restricted the opposition to win by 21 runs.
