The Jamaica Tallawahs have confirmed their home fixtures for the forthcoming Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) campaign and will begin their block of four home matches at Sabina Park against Guyana Amazon Warriors in a night game on Friday, July 15.

The Tallawahs, who will this year boast once more local favourites Chris Gayle, AndrE Russell as well as international stars of the calibre of Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, South Africa's Dale Steyn and Sri Lanka great Kumar Sangakkara in their ranks, will also play back-to-back fixtures against the Zouks in the Central Broward Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, with the home game set to complete the USA leg of CPL before the start of the play-offs.

Manish Patel, co-owner and managing director Jamaica Tallawahs said, in a release from the CPL yesterday, that they were looking forward to "once again ... defending Sabina Park and exciting our passionate public with some strong performances."

Paul Nixon has been confirmed as the Tallawahs head coach for this season and the Englishman will be assisted by Mark O'Donnell.

"It's great to be on board again I'm very excited about the journey ahead," Nixon said.
