Imlach part of specialist wicket-keeping camp in Antigua


Guyanese Tevin Imlach is part of a specialist wicket-keeping camp at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.

West Indies Test wicket-keeper Joshua Da Silva, West Indies T20 International keeper Devon Thomas, and Daniel Williams are part of the camp as they go through the rudiments of glovework.

They have been invited as part of the CWI Emerging Players Academy programme and are working closely with the wicket-keeper coach Nick Wilton and fielding coach Jamal Smith.

“I am always working on my keeping and also working on my fitness. It is great that CWI brought me to Antigua for this week to work with the coaches and improve my skills as much as I can, so I can’t thank them enough for that.  When I’m keeping well I tend to also bat well so the job behind the stumps is just as important to the team as the job in front the stumps. I want to learn as much as I can and improve in all areas. Once both aspects of my game are working well I will make a great contribution to the team,’ Da Silva said.

Wilton is a keeper coach who played for Sussex in the English County Championship and Smith is a former Barbados keeper who also worked with the West Indies Rising Stars U19s camps last year. Later in the camp, West Indies women’s players Shemaine Campbelle and Rashada Williams will also join. (CWI)
