King Hails Fabian Allen’s incredible Spell

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Jamaica Tallawahs Captain Brandon King has hailed the contribution of all-rounder Fabian Allen after the left-arm spinner dismantled St Lucia Kings in the first play-off game of the Caribbean Premier League on Tuesday night.

Allen produced a destructive spell of four for 25 which restricted Kings to a paltry 125 for nine off their 20 overs, and laid the foundation for Jamaica Tallawahs' comfortable five-wicket win at Guyana National Stadium.

"[I was impressed with] the entire bowling unit but, obviously, Fabian really came up trumps for us tonight," King said.

"He bowled an incredible spell, got four wickets. It's hard to do that in the last 10 overs of a T20 game when guys are trying to be aggressive. [Praise] goes out to him; he had an incredible game."

With his allrounder abilities and now obviously fit, why is he not back on the WI team?
