Having been in quarantine for almost two weeks in Trinidad and Tobago, ahead of the start of this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) competition, Jamaica Tallawahs captain Rovman Powell said that the players are eager to return to the field of play.
The Tallawahs, who arrived in the twin-island republic on August 2, have been in quarantine since, as part of the protocols and guidelines that have been set out by the organisers of the CPL and the Trinidad and Tobago government. The tournament will be held from August 18 to September 10.
“I think that things so far have been good because the guys have accepted that there have to be a quarantine period before the start of the competition,” said Powell. “Research has shown how important the quarantine and testing period is in stopping the spread of the virus, and so it is a very important period for us.
“I am very anxious, and I can speak for the other players in the Tallawahs set-up. We are really excited to get out there and to get a feel of what we will be up against with regard to the conditions, and start making our solid plans,” Powell added.
