CRICKET: Room for improvement in Tallawahs franchise, says Philander

Jamaica Tallawahs’ fast bowling all-rounder, Vernon Philander of South Africa, says there is still room for improvement as the local franchise prepares for its home matches in the inaugural Caribbean Premier League Twent20 tournament.

Philander has played lead roles in the team recording three wins in four matches.

Philander says the bowlers need to put more balls in the right areas and the batsmen can rotate the strike better, especially at the start of the innings.

Jamaica Tallawahs will play their first home match tomorrow – a return-leg fixture against the Guyana Amazon Warriors at Sabina Park.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors franchise handed Jamaica Tallawahs their only defeat of the tournament so far.

Jamaica Tallawahs’ other home games are against leaders Barbados Tridents on Saturday and Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel on Sunday.

All matches are scheduled to start at 2 p.m.
