Jamaica Tallawahs registered their second win of the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Twenty20 tournament as they secured a six-wicket win over St. Lucia Stars in match seven at Sabina Park in Jamaica yesterday.
Set a victory target of 176, the Tallawahs, led by a solid half-century from New Zealander Glenn Phillips and an unbeaten 43 from home boy Rovman Powell, got home at 176-4, with two balls to spare.
The win pushed the Tallawahs to the top of the standings on four points, with a superior run rate, while The Stars remain rooted at the foot of the standing without a point from three games, as their losing skid across all season has now been extended to 14 matches.
Meanwhile, former world number one Serena Williams says she is at the start of a “long comeback” after losing 6-3 2-6 6-3 to Czech Petra Kvitova in Cincinnati.
The second-round loss comes on the back of her heaviest career defeat, a 6-1 6-0 loss to Britain’s Johanna Konta in the Silicon Valley Classic first round.
