Sports Talking Therapist…Caribbean Premier League…Warriors will top them

Isn’t it great to have a great beginning? and we smell success, but a smell of success is not a taste of success… and so it has been that Jamaica Tallwahs started off with a big bang..but what happened…

#carryon big bang theory …. could it be that the team fell into the trap that with the initial big bang success was already created…well whether that is the case or not… we still have a great carryon reminder… the end of a thing is better than the beginning thereof… so we must beware of rejoicing too soon and keep level-headed and push on through…

#carryon big bang theory 2… is it that with such a great showing of Andre Russell the team fell back thinking that they could become 1-dimensional… well whether so or not again we have another #carryon tip… anytime we fail to adapt and reinvent ourselves based on what is happening in the now… the best we can become is a ‘one hit wonder’….

and so it was the Jamaica Tallwahs met up with Guyana Amazon WARRIORS! AND  here is where we had a 21-year-old shine through no doubt having been trained in that warrior-mindset …

“Shimron Hetmyer became the youngest centurion in CPL history, and the first to do it on American soil, as Guyana Amazon Warriors rallied to victory by 71 runs to hand Jamaica Tallawahs their first loss of CPL 2018. “

How ironic though; 

Tallawahs actually had a better Powerplay than Amazon Warriors, reaching 69 for 1 after six, compared to the visitors’ 60 for 2. Much of that was down to the hot start provided by Glenn Phillips.http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8623/report/1148657/jamaica-tallawahs-vs-guyana-amazon-warriors-11th-match-caribbean-premier-league-2018

well, we already talked about that hot start… so now we can give focus on the spirit of the warrior… a spirit that we need in the game of life… so what if we don’t get the ‘better start’ or the ‘best start’… the warrior says sh**** that and presses on with tunnel-like focus…

any surprise then our Guyana Amazon Warriors have topped their group! …

Hmm, could you imagine Jamaica TALLWAHS destroying Trinbago Knight Riders only to lose 3 following games then to face this team they destroyed again… what’s the carryon then… no doubt the thought of facing a challenge we defeated could be used as a confidence booster… and the mere fact that it was a fairly close game suggests that this is just what might have happened   

But Trinbago Knight Riders had their own #carryon approach to battle that… what was it? the desire/the drive to redeem self, to make use of another chance to get a win, and that sort of #carryon can empower a sort of higher level resilience and in this case it worked for a win…

Although Trinbago slipped 28-3 after six overs, with Imad Wasim having bowled Sunil Narine for a third-ball duck, Colin Munro (67) was backed up well by Darren and Dwayne Bravo – who both struck five sixes in their innings to take last year’s winners to the brink. https://wired868.com/2018/08/19/cpl-18-tkr-win-last-ball-thriller-in-florida-as-dj-bravos-men-exact-revenge-on-tallawahs/

In reply, Imad Wasim took an impressive 2-17 from his four overs but Darren Bravo’s 50 off 35 and captain DJ Bravo’s quickfire 36 off 11 saw them ably assist Munro as Trinbago edged a tightly-fought game.http://www.skysports.com/live-scores/cricket/jamaica-tallawahs-v-trinbago-knight-riders/22288/11477314/article
