Jamaica Tallawahs captain, Chris Gayle, says the addition of Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara will help to strengthen the team’s batting for the semi-final clash against Barbados Tridents in Trinidad.

Jamaica Tallawahs and Kieron Pollard’s Barbados Tridents will contest the second semi-final on Friday at Queen’s Park Oval.
Regarded as one of the best batsmen of the modern era, Sangakkara is set to join the team following the recent departure of young Pakistan opener, Ahmed Shehzad, due to international duties.
Gayle says having a player like Sangakkara joining the team is a welcome boost.
Sangakkara is expected to bat at his preferred number three position ahead of the in-form Danza Hyatt, young Jermaine Blackwood, all-rounders Andre Russell, Vernon Philander and wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh Jr.
Ramnaresh Sarwan’s Guyana Amazon Warriors and Dwayne Bravo’s Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel will contest the first semi-final tomorrow.
