[WATCH]: Fabian Allen Hits A Colossal Straight 6, Shattering A Window During The CPL 2023 Match Between JT And GAW

In a CPL 2023 match in Guyana, Fabian Allen, the all-rounder for Jamaica Tallawahs (JT), made a significant impact. Just after stepping onto the pitch, the 28-year-old struggled to score four runs from seven balls when Dwaine Pretorius bowled a slower delivery.

However, Allen quickly seized the opportunity, standing tall and delivering a powerful hit that not only sailed over the long-off boundary but also shattered a window in the process against the Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Fabien Allen’s brief yet impactful innings consisted of 21 runs from 14 deliveries, featuring two sixes. The second of these sixes was a remarkable straight hit that traveled an impressive distance of 103 meters.

This spin-bowling all-rounder played a crucial role in helping the defending champions reach a total of 152/5 in their allotted 20 overs.

Allen has been consistently performing this season with a striking rate exceeding 157 in seven matches. This talented right-handed batsman also played a pivotal role in the Tallawahs’ victory in CPL 2022.

Regrettably, despite Allen’s contributions, the Jamaica Tallawahs couldn’t secure a win, resulting in their fifth loss out of eight games. This places them outside the playoff contention, currently holding the fifth position in the standings.

“Had we got 170-180 would have been nice” -Brandon King, the captain of the Jamaica Tallawahs

The disappointment was evident on the face of Brandon King, the captain of the Jamaica Tallawahs, as his team suffered their fifth consecutive defeat, leaving them on the brink of elimination from CPL 2023.

Brandon King has stood out as one of the standout performers for the defending champions, amassing 246 runs in seven matches with an average of over 35 and a striking rate of nearly 152.

Despite a strong start to the season, winning two of their first three games, the Tallawahs have faltered, finding themselves in the lower half of the points table.

During the post-match presentation, King emphasized that once again, it was the batting that had let the team down.

“We started pretty well, the pitch was not easy to bat on, we got 100 in 11 overs which is a good start. Had we got 170-180 would have been nice. I wanted to carry deep, I’m very disappointed with that. Analysing the game, we still haven’t had a complete game with the bat,” King said.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors successfully pursued the target before the 19th over, led by Saim Ayub, who secured his third consecutive half-century.

This victory elevated the Warriors to the summit of the points table as the sole unbeaten team in the tournament, boasting six victories in seven matches and one match that ended without a result.
