Fabian Allen wowed CPL fans with an extraordinary celebration following his remarkable feat of taking two wickets in a single over.
In the crucial elimination match of the Caribbean Premier League, Fabian Allen displayed remarkable composure. Throughout his four overs, the all-rounder from the Jamaica Tallawahs wreaked havoc, claiming an impressive 4-25. His spell single-handedly shifted the game’s momentum and ensured that the St. Lucia Kings remained limited to a modest total of 125-9 in their allotted 20 overs.
Roston Chase, Sikandar Raza, Roshon Primus, and Matthew Forde all fell victim to Allen’s bowling. His exceptional performance dismantled the SLK batting order, preventing them from reaching a competitive total. The top scorer for SLK was Roston Chase, who contributed 40 runs from 36 balls, featuring four boundaries and a six. Despite their initial starts, the SLK batsmen struggled to capitalize on their innings.
Fabian Allen’s unique wicket celebration stole the limelight during the eliminator against the St. Lucia Kings. His exuberant antics gave the impression of an electric shock coursing through his body on the field, leaving everyone in stitches. The video of Allen’s hilarious celebration quickly went viral on the Caribbean Premier League’s X (formerly Twitter) account.
Alex Hales played a brisk innings, notching up 24 runs from 17 balls, including three fours and a six. However, after the early dismissals of both openers, the Jamaica Tallawahs faced a brief collapse with Steven Taylor and Shamarh Brooks falling for 0 and 6 runs respectively. Raymon Reifer’s unbeaten 30 from 32 deliveries, featuring one four and a six, steered them forward.
SLK, in the second innings, saw Matthew Forde’s four-wicket haul, but JLT clinched victory with five wickets and 16 deliveries to spare. With this win, SLK was eliminated from the CPL, and JLT advanced to the second qualifier, set to be an exciting clash against either the Guyana Amazon Warriors or the Trinbago Knight Riders on September 21.
