Opening batsman Chadwick Walton has expressed delight at being back home with the Jamaica Tallahwahs for the 2019 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season.

The 33-year-old batsman played four years for the Tallawahs before moving away to the Guyana Amazon Warriors after a lucrative contract offer in 2017.  Walton recently booked a return to the Jamaica-based franchise after being drafted third in the Hero CPL draft on Wednesday.

 “I'm elated to come home, I couldn't be happier. It's always a different joy to be able to play for your home franchise and it's a franchise I've won with before,” Walton said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

“I'm satisfied with the teammates that have been drafted. We should be able to go very far in the tournament with the quality that we have,” he added.

Walton made a solid impact in his first year with the Warriors, winning player of the tournament in 2017.  Despite making the final with the franchise who lost to Trinbago Knight Riders last season, the player saw his numbers dip overall after a difficult patch.

“I enjoyed my seasons with the Amazon Warriors. We did have some success, but it was a pity we didn't go on to win it (CPL). My career path has taken me back home and hopefully, we can win again.”

Walton was a part of two title-winning teams with the Tallawahs in 2013 and 2017.

Jamaica Scorpions opener Chadwick Walton believes a more disciplined approach enabled them to get their first win the West Indies Championships season following Sunday’s four-wicket victory over the Windwards Volcanoes.

Half-centuries from Chadwick Walton and Brandon King and a mature lower-order unbeaten knock from Kenroy Williams spurred the Jamaica Scorpions to a four-wicket win over the Windwards Volcanoes Sunday at the Grenada National Stadium.

The Jamaica Scorpions are 226 runs ahead of the Windward Islands Volcanoes with four second innings wickets still in tact at Sabina Park. 

A quick-fire 96-run opening partnership set Guyana Amazon Warriors on their way to a comfortable Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory over Barbados Tridents at Kensington Oval. 

Chris Gayle has been left out of the Windies squad for their upcoming T20i series against Bangladesh starting on Tuesday in St. Kitts.
