Five Barbados players in Maple squad for WIPA Twenty20 Club champions tournament in Trinidad - Edwards named captain

Bridgetown, Barbados, May 4 (www.bcacricket.org) - Four Barbados first-class players and one national Twenty20 representative are included in the CGI Maple 14-squad for the West Indies Players (WIPA) Twenty20 Club Champions League 2009 tournament in Trinidad from May 8 to 17 at Guaracara Park, Pointe-a-Pierre.

They are batsman Kirk Edwards, fast bowlers Kemar Roach and Barrington Yearwood and off-spinner Shane Ramsay, all of whom played in the recent WICB championship, along with medium-fast bowling all-rounder Khalid Springer, who was a member of the Barbados Twenty20 team in last year’s Stanford championship.

Former Barbados fast bowler Emmerson Jordan is coach of the team.

Maple won the inaugural Sagicor General Twenty20 championship last season under the captaincy of Springer.

Team manager Barrington Yearwood snr told the BCA website this morning that a captain for the WIPA tournament is to be named tonight – 24 hours ahead of Maple’s departure to Trinidad.

Edwards, who led Barbados in the last round of the WICB first-class championship against Guyana, was later appointed captain with Yearwood jnr as vice-captain. Both will also serve in those positions for the 2009 BCA domestic season, which starts May 9.

The past week was a hectic one for officials of the Trents-based, St. James club, as they were preparing for their 50th anniversary awards and dinner, which was held on Saturday night at the Accra Beach Hotel.

Five other Barbadians with first-class experience – opening batsman Rashidi Boucher, middle order batsman Alcindo Holder and all-rounders Kenroy Williams, Shamarh Brooks and Ryan Hurley, have been named by the WIPA organisers to represent Trinidadian clubs in the tournament, which carries a prize of US$100 000 for the champions.

Hurley will be playing for defending champions Powergen, Holder turns out for Merryboys while Brooks, Boucher and Williams are listed in the Wanderers squad. Wanderers were runners-up last year.

Locally, Williams plays for BNB St. Catherine, Holder for ICBL Empire, Brooks and Boucher represent Super Centre Spartan and Hurley is associated with ESA Field Pickwick.

Boucher is a late replacement for Patrick Browne, the BNB St. Catherine and Barbados wicket-keeper/batsman.

Maple squad – Pedro Agard, Mario Albert, Kirk Brome, Kirk Edwards, Neval Grazette, Reeco Headley, Orman Kellman, Renaldo Parris, Anderson Payne, Kelvin Payne, Shane Ramsay, Kemar Roach, Khalid Springer, Barrington Yearwood jnr. Manager: Barrington Yearwood snr. Coach: Emmerson Jordan.
