Tallawahs have appointed Vinod Maharaj and Ryan Austin as assistants to move coach Floyd Reifer. “Yes, it’s a big loss. Sarwan brings a lot to the game – his knowledge, his experience and the way he has dealt with the players over the years, so it is a great loss,” Tallawahs CEO Jeff Miller was quoted as saying by the Trinidad Newsday.
“We are going to look to move forward. This is a rebuilding year for us, but I don’t just want to say rebuilding. We are here to win the tournament. I think we have a great team and the guys are keen and ready to go, and let’s see at the end what happens, but we are definitely looking forward to having a great tournament this year,” stated Miller.

Miller, nonetheless, made it clear that Sarwan leaving the crew has no reference to that acrimonious episode.
