Antigua franchise set to replace Jamaica Tallawahs in 2024 CPL

1 min read

Jamaica Tallawahs, the reigning 2022 Caribbean Premier League champions, won’t be in action during the 2024 season, as a new team from Antigua and Barbuda will take their place. Tallawahs franchise owner Kris Persaud has sold the team back to the CPL due to the challenges of sustainable operations. Antigua, which previously hosted the Antigua Hawksbills in the first two CPL seasons, is preparing to have a new franchise in 2024. The CPL plans to reintroduce a Jamaica-based franchise in the future, with a spokesperson indicating that this could happen in 2025 at the earliest. Despite this development, West Indies T20 captain Rovman Powell expressed disappointment over his home island losing their franchise, especially given Jamaica’s strong cricketing traditions. Additionally, Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica’s primary stadium, will not host any T20 World Cup games next year and has not hosted international cricket since August 2022. The 2024 CPL season is set to begin in mid-August and extend into September.
