The Jamaica Tallawahs have added Ish Sodhi to their squad for the remaining matches of the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League.

Sodhi will replace Adam Zampa who is returning to Australia for the start of their domestic season.

Zampa was selected to replace Shahid Afridi who withdrew from the squad citing ongoing rehabilitation for his injured knee.

Sodhi has played 26 T20 Internationals for New Zealand, claiming 36 wickets at an average of 19.33. The leg spin bowler spent time as the number one ranked spinner in T20 Internationals and has also played ODIs and T20s for his country.

The Tallawahs have qualified for the knockout stages of the 2018 tournament and have one group game remaining. The final takes place on September 16 at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy

    Former South Africa coach Russell Domingo has been appointed to lead the Bangladesh national team.

    The 44-year-old will take up his post on August 21 and has agreed a two-year contract, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said.

    He replaces Steve Rhodes, the former Worcestershire and England wicketkeeper, who spent 13 months in charge before parting company with Bangladesh after their disappointing eighth-place finish at the Cricket World Cup.

    Domingo had a four-year spell as head coach of his native South Africa before being replaced by Ottis Gibson in 2017.

    Port Elizabeth-born Domingo said: "It is a massive honour to be appointed the head coach of the Bangladesh national cricket team. I have followed Bangladesh's progress with keen interest and I am extremely excited to assist the team in reaching the goals that they are capable of.

    "I look forward to continuing the ongoing development of current players whilst also looking towards the future and developing some new bright stars from within the talent pool of Bangladesh cricket."

    In a statement on the BCB website, board president Nazmul Hassan said of Domingo: "He has a wealth of experience and we have been very impressed with his passion and coaching philosophy. He has a clear idea of what is required to take the team forward."

    Bangladesh play Afghanistan and Zimbabwe in a tri-nation T20 series in September, before touring India for two Tests and three T20 games in November.

  • Morgan needs 'more time to think' about England future Morgan needs 'more time to think' about England future

    Eoin Morgan wants to captain England in next year's Twenty20 World Cup but says he "needs more time" to reflect after a back injury.

    Morgan led England as hosts as they won the Cricket World Cup, beating New Zealand in a classic final at Lord's last month.

    But his future is uncertain in the aftermath of that success, while he has been battling a back injury that dogged him through the 50-over tournament.

    Morgan is keen to continue in the limited-overs leadership role but will first take some time to consider his options, determined he will only captain the side if he is physically fit.

    "I need more time to think, that's the honest answer," he told the BBC's Test Match Special. "It's a big decision, a big commitment.

    "Given the injury that I went through in the World Cup, I need time to get fully fit.

    "I actually need the season to end pretty soon so I can have that time to physically get fit and guarantee that it's not an injury risk between this year and next, and then I'll be able to make a call on that."

    Asked if he wanted to skipper the side, Morgan added: "Absolutely. Who doesn't?

    "I just don't want to let anybody down. When you lead, you have to lead from the front and you have to be physically fit.

    "Finding form is another thing. Hopefully that works itself out."
