CEO of the Jamaica Tallawahs Jefferson Miller has confirmed that the Caribbean Premier League franchise will remain in Jamaica. Miller who is in the island to complete negotiations with the Ministry of Sport, says he’s awaiting an announcement from Minister Olivia 'Babsy' Grange by the weekend.
Though not revealing any details of the discussion with Minister Grange on Thursday, Miller revealed that the Tallawahs will remain in Jamaica beyond 2019, putting to bed speculations that the US owners are looking to move the franchise to another Caribbean Island or Florida.
A source close to the Tallawhs has also revealed that all five home games in this year's CPL will be played at Sabina Park which would make it the first time that Jamaica will host five games in the CPL. The 2019 CPL tournament will run from August 21 to September 27.
