Ramnaresh Sarwan to miss CPL due to personal reasons
Former West Indies spinner Ryan Austin will take his place

Jamaica Tallawahs’ assistant coach Ramnaresh Sarwan has withdrawn his name from the upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) due to personal reasons.

Tallawahs CEO Jeff Miller confirmed to Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, saying, "Sarwan requested leave for personal reasons and that was granted. It's a big loss. Sars 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."

Former West Indies spinner Ryan Austin will take his place.

The tournament is scheduled to begin from August 18 and the 33-game event will be conducted in two stadiums in Trinidad and Tobago.

A few days ago, Tallawahs star player Chris Gayle had slammed Sarwan in a video, after the former was released by the franchise. Gayle had blamed Sarwan for his exit from Tallawahs. The incident had sparked controversy. But Miller was looking ahead.

"We are going to look to move forward. This is a rebuilding year for us, 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," Miller said.

Tallawahs' campaign will commence on August 19 against St Lucia Zouks.
