Player of the match: Johnson Charles
 
Johnson Charles (Man of the Match): Feels great. Always it's good to win the first match. We want to push the momentum now and win the second one. I want to build partnerships as the wickets were falling at the other end. We were up against world-class bowlers so we have to bat carefully. The people are cheering for you and supporting you and I am always thankful to play at the Darren Sammy Cricket ground
St.Lucia Kings beat Jamaica Tallawahs by 2 wickets
Johnson Charles 62(39) | Raymon Reifer 62(41)
Scott Kuggeleijn 3-44 | Imad Wasim 2-15(4)

Turned out to be a thrilling match and eventually, the Kings held their nerve and edged past the Tallawahs, much to the delight of the crowd. Mohammad Amir got rid of Niroshan Dickwella and Faf du Plessis in the same over to put the Kings on the backfoot straightaway but Johnson Charles stayed firm at the other end and took the responsibility

The Kings were reduced to 39-4 but the partnership between Charles and David bailed them out of trouble. Imad Wasim was bowling superbly as he got the big wicket of Tim David but Charles made sure to keep the scoreboard ticking by scoring boundaries at regular intervals. 

Charles charged Reifer for a couple of sixes and a boundary but also got out in the same over to create tension in the building. But important contributions came from Wiese, Joseph and even from Kuggeleijn at the backend as the Kings managed to register their first points of the season
