Tallawahs scampering for replacements after second COVID-19 withdrawal

Voice of Jamaica Tallawahs CEO Jeff Miller

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Jamaica Tallawahs, Jeff Miller has confirmed with Radio Jamaica Sports that young all-rounder Jeavor Royal is the second player withdrawn from the Tallawahs squad after being a close contact of a positive COVID-19.

Miller said it is a devastating blow to the franchise to lose both Andre McCarthy and Royal which has left the management team scurrying around for replacements, especially with the COVID-19 restrictions. 

The Tallawahs who are two time champions, were dealt an earlier blow as South African spinner Tabraiz Shamsi has been forced to stay home due to closed borders, but Miller says a replacement has been found but refused to reveal the player who will be from overseas.

The Jamaican-based players are scheduled to leave for Trinidad and Tobago on Monday for quarantine before the August 18 start of the CPL.
