Rovman Powell and Veerasammy Permaul clash: The two West Indian players were involved in a brutal clash at the Brian Lara Stadium.

During the third match of the ongoing eighth season of the Caribbean Premier League between Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Zouks in Tarouba, Jamaica Tallawahs captain Rovman Powell and spinner Veerasammy Permaul were involved in a brutal clash at the boundary whilst trying to dismiss St Lucia Zouks batsman Najibullah Zadran.

It all happened on the second delivery of the 15th over when Zadran slog swept a delivery from Tallawahs spinner Sandeep Lamichhane. With Zadran not timing the ball optimally, Powell and Permaul ran from long-on and deep mid-wicket respectively to grab a catch.

Powell, who was running to his left, eventually completed the catch but lack of communication between the two witnessed them clashing with each other. Fortunately for them, none of them got injured even in the slightest of manner.

Coming in to bat at No. 5 in the eighth over, Zadran played well for his 25 (21) inclusive of one four and six each. It was St Lucia all-rounder Roston Chase’s maiden T20 half-century which aided his team to score 158/7 in 20 overs. Playing only his sixth T20, Chase scored 52 (42) with the help of four fours and two sixes.

After Powell won the toss and chose to field, Jamaican bowlers put on display a decent performance to justify their’s captain decision. With bowling figures of 4-0-25-2, spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the pick of their bowlers. While Permaul also picked two wickets, the likes of Lamichhane and Andre Russel dismissed a batsman each.
