All the transfers and retentions ahead of the CPL 2021 season

Jamaica Tallawahs’ Andre Russell is among the high-profile retentions by franchises ahead of CPL 2021, which is set to be played entirely in St Kitts from August 28 to September 19. Last April, Russell had called the Tallawahs the “weirdest” franchise that he has played for, saying CPL 2020 would be his last season with them. However, Russell will be part of the Tallawahs again along with fellow allrounders Carlos Brathwaite and Rovman Powell.

As for the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, who were depleted by Covid-enforced absentees in 2020, they will now be bolstered by the addition of Dwayne Bravo, who has been traded from Trinbago Knight Riders, the defending champions. Bravo will reunite with coach Simon Helmot with whom he had won the CPL for the Trinidad & Tobago franchise in 2015. Helmot had missed the last season for the Patriots after testing positive for the coronavirus, and was subsequently replaced by Courtney Walsh, who is now the head coach of West Indies Women.
