Ramnaresh Sarwan who is the Assistant Coach of Jamaica Tallawahs has opted to leave the CPL’s bio-secure bubble due to certain personal reasons.
The CPL is scheduled to begin from August 18 & it will be played in Trinidad & Tobago behind closed doors. As per a media report, Vinod Maharaj and Ryan Austin have been named as assistants to head coach Floyd Reifer ahead of the upcoming CPL edition.
“Yes, it’s a big loss. 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,” ESPNCrincfo quoted Tallawahs CEO Jeff Miller as saying to Trinidad Newsday.
“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,” he added.
Earlier this year Sarwan had a public quarrel with Chris Gayle after Gayle alleged that Sarwan was behind his ousting from the Tallawahs Lineup. Then the former Windies batsman Sarwan hit back at Gayle terming the allegations as “scandalous”.
The rhapsodic Gayle announced that he is moving to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots before pulling out of the upcoming tournament due to personal reasons. The CPL is scheduled to commence from August 18 & team Jamaica Tallawahs will face St Lucia Zouks on August 19.
