Taylor added to St Lucia Zouks
CASTRIES, St. Lucia (CMC):
Fast bowler Jerome Taylor has been added to the St. Lucia Zouks squad for the remainder of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) campaign. Taylor, who announced his retirement from Test cricket this week, has replaced pacer Miguel Cummins who has been called up to the West Indies Test squad for the upcoming series against India.
Jamaica-born Taylor, 32, is set to link up with the Zouks squad following their clash against Guyana Amazon Warriors last night.
He is expected to be in the frame for selection for their next Hero CPL game, which is away to Barbados Tridents on Sunday, July 17.
Taylor retired after representing the West Indies in 46 Tests.
The Jamaican pacer has also played 85 one-day internationals and 10 T20 Internationals to date.
In 61 career T20 matches to date, Taylor has taken 74 wickets, with best bowling figures of five wickets for 10 runs.
He has previously represented the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Hero CPL.
The Zouks' opening home match against the Patriots is expected to attract a large following since it marks the launch of the newly renamed 12,400 capacity Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, previously known as the Beausejour Stadium.
Fans will also get to be a part of history for the opening of the newly renamed Johnson Charles Stand.
