Barbados, August 13
Jamaica Tallawahs’ assistant coach Ramnaresh Sarwan has pulled out of the upcoming version of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) owing to non-public causes. He will probably be changed by former West Indies spinner Ryan Austin within the franchise.
“Sarwan requested leave for personal reasons and that was granted,” Tallawahs CEO Jeff Miller informed Trinidad and Tobago Newsday. “It’s a big loss. Sars (Sarwan) brings a lot to the game – his knowledge, his experience and the way he has dealt with the players over the years, so it is a great loss.”
The 33-match event, slated to start out from August 18, will probably be performed in Trinidad & Tobago with simply two stadiums set to host the complete occasion.
“We are going to look to move forward. This is a rebuilding year for us, (but) I don’t just want to say rebuilding. We are here to win the tournament. I think we have a great team and the guys are keen and ready to go and let’s see at the end what happens, but we are definitely looking forward to having a great tournament this year,” stated Miller.
Sarwan had discovered himself within the centre of a CPL controversy not way back after Chris Gayle, who wasn’t retained by Jamaica Tallawahs for this season, alleged it was due to Sarwan who created variations between him and the franchise.
Tallawahs will open their 2020 CPL marketing campaign towards St Lucia Zouks on August 19. IANS
