CRICKET: Chris Gayle's Jamaica Tallawahs go in search of victory against Red Steel

The Chris Gayle-led Jamaica Tallawahs will continue their campaign in the inaugural Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 tonight at 8 p.m. when they face Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad.

Both teams have so far played two matches.

However, while the Jamaica Tallawahs have won one of their matches, Dwayne Bravo’s Red Steel have lost both games.

Jamaica Tallawahs recorded their victory on Sunday by defeating Antigua Hawksbills at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

Jamaica Tallawahs won the game by seven wickets courtesy of match-winning performances from West Indies all-rounder Andre’ Russell and South African fast bowler Vernon Philander.

With five matches to play in the preliminary round of the competition, the Red Steel are hoping to turn their fortunes around if they are to have any chance of advancing to the semi-finals.

Marlon Samuels' Antigua Hawksbills beat St Lucia Zouks by 33 runs last night in St Kitts for their first victory in three games.

With win, Antigua Hawksbills moved third place in the points table, just ahead of Jamaica Tallawahs. Both teams have two points each, but the Hawksbills are ahead courtesy of net-run-rate.

Barbados Tridents are leading the table with maximum six points from three games, two ahead of second place Guyana Amazon Warriors.
