Former Jamaica and West Indies player Xavier Marshall has been temporarily replaced in the Jamaica Tallawahs squad for the Hero/ Caribbean Premier League.
Marshall who plays for the USA will be unavailable until September 14 due to international commitments.
Marshall was drafted as the Tallawahs’ ICC Americas player, but draft rules allow for him to be replaced by a Caribbean or overseas player.
Marshall will be replaced by Jamaican batsman, Kennar Lewis who played nine times for the Tallawahs last season.
Lewis will be joining a star-studded Tallawahs squad which will feature fellow Jamaicans Chris Gayle and Andre Russell.
The Tallawahs open against the Trinbago Knight Riders on Friday September 6 at queen’s park oval in Trinidad.
Their home matches will take place between September 12 and 19 with all five of those games taken place at Sabina Park.
