Bramble confirmed to lead Windies B in Global T20 League
Cricket West Indies now has a Windies B squad. That is the squad that has been assembled to travel to Canada for the inaugural Global T20 Canada League, which will run from June 28 to July 15.
Guyana’s wicketkeeper/batsman Anthony Bramble has been appointed captain of the squad.
The international tournament is set to attract other elite T20 players from across, but Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams, thinks “this is a great opportunity for players and feeds into the organisation’s wider high-performance programme, which looks to develop all-round skills sets of the players and officials.”
Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne said, “With our Test and A Teams currently on tour, the Global T20 presents an opportunity for the panel to see some of our developing players in the region. The exposure and added development will assist us with identifying players with the potential to develop into international T20 cricketers.”
This WINDIES B squad is: Anthony Bramble (Captain), Fabian Allen, Alick Athanaze, Roland Cato, Justin Greaves, Derval Green, Kavem Hodge, Brandon King, Jeremiah Louis, Obed Mcoy, Khary Pierre, Nicholas Pooran, Sherfane Rutherford and Shamar Springer.
The Team Management Unit includes: Stuart Williams – Coach, Roderick Estwick – Coach, Denis Byam – Physiotherapist, Cyril Cox – Strength and Conditioning Trainer and Trent Sargeant – Analyst.
The Global T20 Canada League will see 22 matches played in a round-robin format followed by playoffs and the championship match to be held on July 15. All contests will take place at Maple Leaf Cricket Club in Toronto.
The contingent is set to leave the region on June 14.
