The Jamaica Tallawahs have called Mahmudullah Riyad into their squad for the remainder of the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season as replacement for Imad Wasim who has been recalled to undergo fitness testing by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Bangladeshi all-rounder Mahmudullah has played 33 Tests, 145 ODIs and 58 Twenty20 internationals for his country and has taken 131 wickets and scoring 5,774 runs in international cricket over his eight-year career. His 102 not out against New Zealand in the recently concluded Champions Trophy helped his team secure a semi-final spot in that tournament.

Mahmudullah will join the Tallawahs on August 23, 2017 in time to participate in their match against St. Lucia Stars at Sabina Park.

Speaking of Mahmudullah’s arrival Tallawahs coach, Paul Nixon, said: “We are gutted to be losing Imad Wasim but Mahmudullah is a great replacement. He is a proven match winner at international level and he is exactly the kind of player we need to claim back to back Hero CPL titles.”
