Sarwan Walks Away From Tallawahs’ Position

 

The Tallawahs has once again found itself in a spot of bother for the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Ramnaresh Sarwan, former Tallawahs’ batting coach, and this season’s assistant coach has withdrawn from the position, citing personal reasons.

This latest move comes against the backdrop of Windies legend Chris Gayle’s criticism of Sarwan calling him “a snake,” “evil,” “wicked,” and “poison.”

Gayle blamed Sarwan back then for his release from his home team the Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League.

He charged that Sarwan was “vindictive,” “immature,” and “despicable.”

“It was my greatest wish to finish my Caribbean Premier League (CPL) career in Jamaica – playing in front of my home crowd at Sabina Park with the franchise that I had previously led to two CPL titles,” said Gayle.

The ace Windies batter subsequently apologized for his outburst, thus escaping sanction from the Caribbean Premier League’s (CPL) organizers.

St. Lucia Zouks later picked the 40-year-old Gayle as one of the marquee players, but he opted out soon after, citing family reasons.

Recently questions were raised after Sarwan was cited at a Guyanese government ceremony.

Earlier, the Talawahs lost the services of two of its players, Andre McCarthy and Jeavor Royal, because of COVID-19.

The CEO of the Tallawahs confirmed Sarwan’s withdrawal in a press report.

Meanwhile, the Floyd Reifer-coached team will have former West Indies off-spinner Ryan Austin as Sarwan’s replacement, and Miller also outlined the next step for the players who did their second COVID-19 test on Monday since quarantine.
