The record was previously held by former South African batsman JP Duminy, who completed a half-century off 15 balls against the Trinibago Knight Riders for the Barbados Tridents in 2019.

Russell hit six sixes and three fours in his unbeaten half-century. During this time he scored with a strike rate of 357.14. Earlier, St. Lucia won the toss and elected to field first.

Jamaica Tallaha scored 255 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. This is the second highest in the history of the CPL. At number one is the Knight Riders, who scored 267 for 2 in 2019 at Sabina Park. Talawahas’ previous highest score was 241 for 4 against the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in 2019.

Apart from Russell’s half-century (Andre Russell’s fastest half-century cpl), his side were led by opener Kenner Lewis (48) and Chadwick Walton (47). Haider Ali contributed 45 runs. Captain Rowman Powell scored 38 off 26 balls.
