Don’t worry Cricket fans, I have not forgotten you. I just feel a little left out since matches do not come to Jamaica until August 25th!
Florida got quite a few matches this year. My Kingston 21 Suga Bears should check out the Schedule! I know some went last weekend already.
CPL T20 2017 Schedule:
Chris Gayle has left the Tallawahs for the St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots! What a tragedy.
We still have Wicket Keeper and Batsman, Kumar Sangakkara though.
We acquired one of the best bowlers in CPL T20, Krishmar Santoki.
We also have a good batsman, Lendl Simmons.
The Coach is former English Cricketer, Paul Nixon.
The Tridents have a decent team with all-rounder, Kieron Pollard, Bowler Ravi Rampaul, Wicket keeper out of Pakistan, Shoaib Malik and New Zealand Batsman, Kane Williamson.
