Chris Gayle, perhaps the world’s most exciting T20 cricket batsman, leads the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots into his native Jamaica where they will face the team that Gayle previously captained. The Jamaica Tallawahs, now skippered by Gayle’s West Indies teammate, Andre “Superman” Russell, as SportsMax TV reports, have yet to lose a CPL match this season in two tries. The teams will meet in a game that will live stream from Sabina Park.
Russell, also a native Jamaican, has proven more than capable in leading the Tallawahs in his first week at the helm. Not only did the team win its first two matches, but as CricInfo reports, “Superman” bowled only the second hat-trick in the Caribbean Premier League’s eight-season history and also scored a century with the bat off if just 40 balls. Russell also hauled in a spectacular catch in the field in the team’s opener against Trinbago Knight Riders.
But Russell shared the credit for Jamaica’s fast start with his entire team, according to SportsMax.
“I think it showed the all-round team that we have. It’s not all about a one-man show when one man does come in the others step up and play their part,” Russell said on Tuesday. “We just have to keep growing from strength to strength.”
