Allrounder Andre Russell says he can t
wait to line up again with the Jamaica
Tallawahs in an effort to help propel his
Kingston-based franchise into the final of
the Limacol Caribbean Premier League
The 25-year-old has emerged as the hero
for the Tallawahs, producing match-winning
knocks and incisive spells to help reverse
the fortunes of his side, at one stage in dan-
ger of not qualifying for the round of four.
"I ve been working hard on my batting
and bowling so I am not really surprised by
form at the moment. I m bowling good york-
ers, I m hitting the ball cleanly and I m wait-
ing for my type of balls to dispatch so I m
happy," Russell said.
"We ve qualified for the semifinals but
we want to keep up that winning momentum
so we just want to take it step by step."
Russell announced himself with a scin-
tillating unbeaten 42, an innings which fired
Tallawahs to a seven-wicket victory over
Antigua Hawksbills, in their second match
of the inaugural tournament.
In the next match against Trinidad and
Tobago Red Steel, he snatched the two key
wickets of Adrian Barath and skipper
Dwayne Bravo at critical moments in the
game, as the Tallawahs stole a narrow five-
run win in the last over.
Subsequently, stroke-filled, unbeaten
knocks of 47 and 27 also saw Tallawahs post
important triumphs and Russell says his
performances were testament to the deter-
mination he has shown since losing his spot
in the West Indies team.
"I m feeling good. I got dropped from the
West Indies team but I know what I have
to do and I know how important it is for
me to work harder than everyone else," said
Russell, who last played for West Indies on
Zimbabwe s tour of the Caribbean in March.
"As an allrounder you have to be extra
fit. I ve been doing a lot of work. I ve played
in England for Worcestershire and I ve been
doing a lot of running and stuff like that."
The Tallawahs surge inform saw them
finish second in the standings behind Guyana
Amazon Warriors, and set up a highly antic-
ipated clash with the Tridents today.
Russell, who has played 34 One-Day Inter-
nationals and 15 Twenty20s for West Indies,
said much of the Tallawahs success had
been as a result of the senior players and
the atmosphere they had created in the
Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik of the Bar-
bados Tridents has predicted that the Limacol
Caribbean Premier League (LCPL) will become "huge"
after the success of the ongoing inaugural tourna-
"After the IPL and the Big Bash League you can take
this as third (in the world) and it is just the first year,"
"The response from the West Indies people has been
awesome. Whenever you are playing a league it is about
people coming to the ground; that is the key to success,
and I have seen that here".
Malik has been one of the stars of the show as the
leading batsman with 223 runs from seven innings, as
well as three wickets.
His side---led by Kieron Pollard---is getting ready to
face Chris Gayle s Jamaica Tallawahs in today s second
"People have been coming from everywhere," said
Malik, still only 31 despite being a veteran of 32 Tests,
216 One-Day Internationals and 53 Twenty20 Interna-
"I was talking to the Jamaica players and they were
saying We were not expecting much of a crowd in
Jamaica , but we played there and even in a day game
I saw the ground full and energetic".
The Limacol CPL has been a re-birth for Malik, who
slipped out of international reckoning for Pakistan s tour
However during the LCPL preliminary round he has
not only been a star with the bat but has also featured
prominently with the ball, relishing pitches that have
often assisted the slower bowlers.
"I was struggling with my shoulder and my elbow
but I have had surgery for my elbow and I have worked
hard in the gym every day," he said.
"Now I am absolutely fine. I can even bowl 30 overs
all-rounder; that is my priority."
BASSETERRE---T&T s Jeremy Solozano has
emerged as the leading batsman following the
West Indies Cricket Board Regional Under-19
50-over competition here.
Solozano topped the batting charts with 257
runs at an average of 51.40 which includes the
highest score of the tournament---an unbeaten
139 against the ICC Americas.
His knock was also the lone century of the 50-
Preston McSween of the Windward Islands
emerged the top bowler with 16 wickets at an
average of 11.13 each.
McSween s teammate, Gian Benjamin was as
the leading wicketkeeper with 17 catches.
Taryck Gabriel, another Windward Islander
bagged the trophy for the best allrounder after
scoring 232 runs (38.67 average) and taking five
wickets at 15.4 runs per wicket.
The tournament concluded on Tuesday in St
Kitts after seven rounds of 50 Over matches which
followed the three-day tournament.
Jamaica swept the Under-19 titles, winning the
50-over trophy with a clean sweep of six victories
to accumulate 37.2 points.

MONTREAL---The World Anti-Doping
Agency (WADA) has threatened to expel
Jamaica from the next Olympics and
other major competitions if it refuses
to address shortcomings highlighted by
a senior ex-employee.
WADA director general David Howman
Wednesday night urged the Portia Simp-
son Miller government to investigate
claims by the former executive director
of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission
that its drugs-testing programme was
"Our normal approach if we have issues
falling into the category of either com-
plaint or concern is to try to work with
the particular signatory---in this case the
NADA (national anti-doping agency)---
and remedy it," Howman said.
"If nothing happens, we can ask our
board to declare any of the signatories
non-compliant and that has implications
as to whether teams from the country
would be admitted into various events".
Renee Anne Shirley had accused
Jamaica s politicians and administrators
of ignoring her warnings that the positive
tests returned by Asafa Powell and four
other athletes were a "disaster" waiting
to happen, saying: "They believe Jamaica
does not have a problem."
Howman warned that if the country
refused to take its responsibilities seri-
ously, WADA could deem Jadco non-com-
pliant with the WADA code, which could
have dire consequences for the country s
elite athletes, including world record-
breaking sprinter Usain Bolt.
"We report the non-compliance to peo-
ple who can then consider whether other
sanctions ought to follow," said Howman.
"That would be the IOC (International
Olympic Committee) and IAAF (Interna-
tional Association of Athletics Federations)
and so on."(CMC)
