Jamaica Tallawahs batsman Nkrumah Bonner believes he can have an impact in this season’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL), though until Saturday he had not featured in Twenty20 (T20) cricket since 2016.

“It’s been a while since I played a T20 [game]; I’ve been focusing on red-ball cricket. Hopefully, I get the opportunity to stabilize that [Tallawahs’] middle order — that’s my main role — then I can explode near the end,” he said ahead of his team’s second loss of the tournament, a 14-run failure versus Guyana Amazon Warriors in Tarouba, Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday.

Given the chance against the Guyana-based franchise, Bonner was harshly given out leg before wicket for only four as batsmen on both teams struggled on a pitch which produced variable pace and bounce.

The Jamaican’s previous game in the format was four years ago against the Amazon Warriors. Then he also made four in a Tallawahs defeat.
