Jamaica Tallawahs coach Donovan Miller says the Jamaica Tallawahs must turn things around quickly if they are to avoid losing their fourth straight match when they play the in-form Trinbago Knight Riders at Sabina Park tonight (September 13).

Jerome Taylor will replace Pakistan’s Amad Butt in the Jamaica Tallawahs squad for the start of the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season.

There was just one wicket in it when the Jamaica Scorpions got over the line in their West Indies Championship game against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at Warner Park in St Kitts. 

The Jamaica Scorpions are 65 runs away from their second win on the trot in their West Indies Championship match against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes being played at Warner Park in St Kitts. 

Windies quick Jerome Taylor has been re-signed by English country cricket club Somerset ahead of the new T20 Vitality Blast.

The 34-year-old previously spent time with Leicestershire and Sussex, joined Somerset midway last season where he took 22 wickets at an average of 16.64.

The Jamaica, who took a season-best of 5 for 15 against Hampshire in Taunton, was crucial in the team’s run to the final for the first time in over 20 years.  Taylor has played 30 T20 internationals and 101 other T20 matches across the globe.   Unlike last season, Taylor will be available for Somerset for the entire duration of the T20 Blast.  The team begins its campaign with a fixture against Glamorgan on July 18. 

Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry insisted the club was happy to have Taylor back in its ranks.

“Jerome made a real impact during the 2018 Vitality Blast campaign and we are really excited to be continuing our relationship with him,” Hurry said.

“He brought a wealth of experience and skill that, alongside his availability for the full duration of the 2019 competition, will again add significant value to our attack.”

 

The winless Jamaica Scorpions have made three changes to their squad that departed the island on Monday for Grenada where they play the Windward Island Volcanoes starting January 17 in the next round of the West Indies Championships.

Chris Gayle and Rovman Powell have been named to a Jamaica Scorpion 14-match squad to contest the Regional Super 50 tournament set to begin next month.
