Watch fast-paced T20 cricket live online as the festive Caribbean Premier League plays its 22nd match of 2015 Sunday, with the Jamaica Tallawahs looking for their first home victory as they host the last-place Guyana Amazon Warriors — a rematch of the first-ever CPL final, which Jamaica won in 2013.
To find out how to watch the Jamaica Tallawahs vs. Guyana Amazon Warriors Caribbean Premier League Day 22 match live online, see the information in the final paragraph of this article. The match is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica. But with no daylight savings time in effect in that country, that time is the same as 5 p.m. United States Eastern Daylight Time, 2 p.m. Pacific.
The Tallawahs, under Captain Chris Gayle, opened their homestand on Saturday in disappointing fashion, dropping a 17-run decision to the Barbados Tridents, missing a chance to go top of the table and at the same time, allowing Barbados to jump back into first place.
Though the Jamaica bowlers held the Tridents to a relatively modest 146 for seven, when Jamaica took their innings at bat, disaster struck right away. Not only did the Tallawahs lose four wickets inside the first six overs, while posting a paltry 18 runs in that span, they also lost their talisman Gayle early on.
When Gayle posts a big score, Jamaica has won in this Caribbean League season. But when he goes down early, his team follows suit. And that’s what happened on Saturday.
Gayle had faced a mere 11 balls for 14 runs when he was caught out at cover. And things only got worse from there, when the Tridents’ South African spinner Robin Peterson took the ball for the fifth over and took three wickets with his six deliveries. Jamaica never recovered.
Gayle and his men will hope to do better when Guyana visits Kingston Sunday. The match also pits two of cricket’s most proficient spin bowlers against each other, with 27-year-old Trinidadian Sunil Narine taking the ball for Guyana — while 36-year-old New Zealand great Dan Vettori plays the final tournament of his career on the Jamaica side.
