Jamaica Tallawahs captain Rovman Powell says despite the massive failure of opener Chadwick Walton in the Caribbean Premier T20 League, they are still willing to persist with him and hope he finds his best form.
Walton has made only 14 runs from seven games so far this season, including 10 runs in one game, but Powell says he is worth the risks.
There have also been suggestions that star player Andre Russell be made to bat higher up the order to give the team a better chance especially when chasing, but Powell hints that he will remain at number six.
