The Jamaica Tallawahs and Florida based Worldwide Sports Management Group has joined forces with American College Cricket. As American College Cricket celebrates its 10th National Championship for the Shiv Chanderpaul Trophy, the Jamaica Tallawahs and American College Cricket are excited to announce that the American College Cricket MVP for the past season will be awarded an all-expenses paid stint in the Tallawahs Training camp in Jamaica before the 2018 CPL starts. The selected player will train with the Tallawahs team and be an integral part of the professional players' experience during the camp, as well as be with the team when it plays at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium a week later.
American College Cricket Founder& President Lloyd Jodah said, "The CPL is giving American cricket fans opportunities to see top stars playing this summer at Central Broward Regional Park. The fans will get an opportunity to see Andre Russell, Shahid Afridi, David Miller, Ross Taylor in action for the Tallawahs ! The Tallawahs are the first professional cricket team set to be a part of the huge American sports scene, so we are thrilled at this opportunity for our players. 28 colleges will compete at our National Championship, with the Semis & Finals televised by SONY, and the player chosen will get a dream fulfilled. I believe it's really important to marry cricket and education for the future of the game so I really appreciate the foresight and generosity of the Tallawahs management in rewarding an American College Cricket player who embodies that vision."
Kris Persaud, owner of the Tallawahs stated “We are excited to join with American College Cricket to provide an opportunity to one of its players to be part of the Tallawahs training camp. The select MVP will be involved with world class players on a daily basic and we are thrilled to be part of this historical occasion.”
