Bramble to lead Windies B in Canada’s Summerfest
The Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies has announced a 14-member Windies B squad for the Cricket Canada Summerfest from August 29 to September 7.
The team will play a series that includes four T20s (including a warm-up) along with two 50-overs matches. A Windies B Team was in Canada a few months ago and was beaten finalist in the inaugural Global T20. Anthony Bramble was also the captain of the team.
Fresh from an exciting 102 runs from 58 balls, Kimani Melius, the leading run-scorer for the Under-19 Championship, now on in St, Vincent is part of the squad for this nine-day tournament.
SQUAD: Anthony Bramble (Captain), Sunil Ambris, Alick Athanaze, Sheeno Berridge, John Campbell, Keacy Carty, Justin Greaves, Derval Green, Jahmar Hamilton, Sherman Lewis, Kyle Mayers, Kimani Melius, Jeavor Royal and Jomel Warrican.
Team Management Unit: Esuan Crandon (Head Coach), Sir Curtly Ambrose (Coach), Alexander Forde (Strength & Conditioning Trainer), Neil Barry (Physiotherapist) and Avenesh Seetaram (Data Capturer).
CWI Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams commented: “The upcoming Windies “B” Tour to Canada will provide another opportunity for our young players to gain experience in the shorter formats. The itinerary comprises both Twenty20 and 50 overs-a-side formats and has allowed CWI to have a look at players who are not involved with the ongoing CPL. This tournament has the potential to assist our player development processes by exposing more of our younger players to more competitive environments.”
