According to sports report, Andre Russell will not be left out in the cold by Caribbean Premier League (CPL) organizers although he won’t be eligible to play in the 2017 tournament set for August and September.

The report noted that although Russell has been serving a one-year ban from the sport for a whereabouts rule anti-doping violation; he has been retained by the Jamaica Tallawahs.

CPL CEO Damien O’Donahue said that there might be a role for Russell to play.

“There is nothing that can be done, we hope to have him involved at some level, be it with our social media or digital site on CPL, because we think he has a huge amount to offer, said O’Donahue.

Meanwhile, the Tallawahs owners are considering playing some of their home games in Florida this year, the report stated.
