Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise Jamaica Tallawahs are planning to host more than half of their home matches during the 2018 CPL season in Florida. This was reported by ESPNcricinfo.

The cricket website reported that the Tallawahs will host three of their five designated home matches in Florida.

Last August ESPNcricinfo reported that the Tallawahs' Florida-based ownership group planned to make more of an effort to establish roots in their home state and away from the official Tallawahs base in Jamaica.

Worldwide Sports Management Group, who bought the Tallawahs from Texas-based businessmen Ron Parikh and Manish Patel, signed an agreement with Lauderhill's Central Broward Regional Park (CBRP) for exclusive rights to stage international cricket at the facility in 2017.

As part of the agreement, they have guaranteed three international events per year.

And ESPNcricinfo said that three dates have been booked at the CBRP in August for the Tallawahs to host matches.

The CPL announced on Wednesday that the 2018 season would be held between August 8 and September 16.
