George Davis and Wayne Lewis discuss whether or not the government should do more to keep Hero Caribbean Premier League franchise, the Jamaica Tallawahs in the country. What say you?

Jamaica may very well not have a team to support when the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) begins this year. 

Barbados Tridents opener Dwayne Smith is not certain if he will be playing any part in the Hero Caribbean Premier League as a player from his home franchise after payment issues arose for a third time. 

Owner of the Barbados Tridents, exiled Indian businessman Dr Vijay Mallya should be headed home to face fraud charges after a United Kingdom court ruled that he be extradited.

According to reports coming out of India, Mallya is up against bank fraud and money-laundering charges that amount to almost US$One Billion.

Mallya left India two years ago and stays in a mansion in Hertfordshire, England, but according to a ruling in Westminster Magistrates’ Court, that could all be set to change.

While the court has signed off on Mallya’s extradition, the Home Secretary has to approve the move, with the Indian given 14 days to appeal the decision.

“We hope to bring him back soon and conclude the case,” said a Spokesman from India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

"CBI has its own inherent strengths. We worked hard on this case. We are strong on law and facts and we were confident while pursuing extradition process,” continued the spokesperson.

Just over two years ago, Mallya was considered one of the wealthiest men in India but fell into trouble when the major organization in his empire, Kingfisher Airlines, collapsed.

That collapse sparked a series of other issues with Diageo, forcing him out as chairman.

He would then lose control over the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League, as well as his Formula One racing team, Force India.

Despite that, the businessman has managed to keep control of the Tridents although he has not had a great time of it.

The Tridents have failed to make the playoffs in the last three seasons of the Hero Caribbean Premier League and finished bottom of the standings in this just-concluded one.

The Tridents lost eight of their last 10 games.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors beat the Trinbago Knight Riders on two occasions of three before they met in the final. Philo Wallace believes a change in the pitch was one of the things that created that imbalance and that the correct team ended up winner of the Hero Caribbean Premier League.

George Davis and Lance Whittaker believe the Trinbago Knight Riders would have won the Hero Caribbean Premier League no matter where they played, so good was the team. Do you think playing at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy was too much of an advantage?

There were a number of records to tumble on Sunday night when the Trinbago Knight Riders overhauled 145 to get rid of the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Hero Caribbean Premier League final, but the most important one to their coach, Simon Katich, was becoming back-to-back title holders. 

Fawad Ahmed was the man that stood between the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and a second consecutive Hero Caribbean Premier League final appearance, and he is hoping he can produce again on Sunday when the Trinbago Knight Riders take on the Guyana Amazon Warriors. 

Trinbago Knight Riders put the disappointment of their Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Playoff 1 defeat to Guyana Amazon Warriors behind them with a professional 20-run semi-final win over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. 

When Ben Cutting launched the second-to-last delivery of Rovman Powell’s over, well back of the square leg boundary in a Hero Caribbean Premier League eliminator it signaled the end for the Jamaica Tallawahs at the hands of an unlikely St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. 

Chris Gayle’s St Kitts & Nevis Patriots are a game away from a second consecutive Hero Caribbean Premier League final and the big left hander is determined to turn the tables on the dangerous Trinbago Knight Riders for the chance to do so. 

Jamaica Tallawahs captain Andre Russell is not dwelling on his team’s elimination from the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League too much, already making plans to do better in a year’s time. 

Jamaica Tallawahs skipper has called out the Hero Caribbean Premier League for a growing list of poor umpiring decisions that have affected the outcome of games this season. 

Despite finishing third of four teams in the Hero Caribbean Premier League, the Jamaica Tallawahs looked a powerful unit and highly fancied for a place in the final of the competition and maybe a third trophy in six years. 

All-round star Rovman Powell contributed runs, wickets and catches as Jamaica Tallawahs kept their hopes of a top-two Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) finish alive with a convincing eight-wicket victory over rivals Guyana Amazon Warriors at Providence Stadium.
