“We came out and played well”; Head Coach Shivnarine Chanderpaul expressed on his team’s Performance against Worries in the Second Qualifier

The Jamaica Tallawahs earned a shot at the 2022 Caribbean Premier League Final after a 37-run Win over the Guyana Amazon Worries in the Second Qualifier.

The head coach of the Jamaica Tallawahs team, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, expressed his opinion about that match and the final.

Asked to bat first, the Tallawahs were in dire straits at 16 for 2 in the third over but everything that followed was table-turning. It began with a 55-run stand between Brooks and Rovman Powell off just 35 deliveries.

Once Powell was dismissed, Brooks strung together another big stand – this time with Raymon Reifer – worth 52 runs off 39 balls.

Reifer’s exit at the start of the 16th over too didn’t deter the batting side as the biggest batting carnage of the innings ensued.

All-rounder Imad Wasim walked out and scored 41 Runs off 15 balls including 4 fours and 3 sixes with Brooks as the pair hit 103 off the last 29 deliveries. With that, Tallawahs took their total to a whopping 226 for 4 in 20 overs.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul said that he was happy with his team for scoring 103 runs in the last 5 overs taking the team total to 227/4. But he also said that he was expecting about 150-160 runs in 20 overs.

“When we started we thought it was a good wicket and then we saw a bit up and down on the wicket and thought probably 150-160,” Chanderpaul told to Media.

Shamarh Brooks Scored 109 off 52 balls including 7 fours and 8 sixes.

“That Innings was amazing, It was proper cricket shots. He was fluent and the shots were really amazing. And that was really, really good for us.” Chanderpaul said.

“We came out and played as well as we can to make sure we win this match and the guys delivered tonight and we were able to come out on top.” he added

There they face off against Barbados Royals for the title showdown.

“Definitely. We just have to make sure that everybody is well and ready to get on the park when the time comes.”
