Ramnaresh Sarwan Opts Out of CPL 2020

Jamaica Tallawahs assistant coach Ramnaresh Sarwan has chosen to skip the upcoming season due to personal reasons. 

A few days prior to the kick-off of CPL 2020, Jamaica Tallawahs assistant coach Ramnaresh Sarwan has decided to opt-out due to personal reasons. With that, he has been replaced by former West Indies spinner Ryan Austin and Vinod Maharaj in head coach Floyd Reifer’s support staff.

As per the Tallawahs CEO Jeff Miller, ‘Sarwan requested leave for personal reasons and that was granted. 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’. 

Just recently, Sarwan was caught in boiling waters due to the controversy which concerned Chris Gayle’s departure from the Tallawahs. According to Gayle, it was Sarwan who was the main reason as to why he no longer wanted to play with the team. Even Miller also partly thinks that this may be a contributing factor as to why Sarwan has left them this season. 

‘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’, Miller added.
