LEAD - Whopping nine Barbadians in CCC squad for WICB President’s Cup championship in Guyana

October 10 – (www.bacricket.org) - A whopping nine Barbadians including captain Floyd Reifer have been included in Combined Campuses & Colleges (CCC) 14-man squad for the WICB President’s Cup (50-over-a-side) championship in Guyana, October 26 to November 5.

Apart from veteran left-hand batsman Reifer, who has also skippered West Indies recently, the other Barbadians are batsmen Omar Phillips, Kurt Wilkinson and Nekoli Parris, all-rounder Jamal Smith, off-spinner Ryan Austin and fast bowlers Jason Bennett, Khismar Catlin and Kevin McClean.

The other members of the squad are veteran batsman Romel Currency (St. Vincent & the Grenadines), left-arm spinner Kavesh Kantasingh (Trinidad & Tobago) and opener Simon Jackson, wicket-keeper/batsman Chadwick Walton and leg-spinner Gavin Wallace (Jamaica).

Currency has also represented the Windward Islands in regional first-class and limited overs matches while Wallace has played for Jamaica at the first-class level as recently as the 2009 WICB championship.

Well-placed sources told the BCA website that at least two other Barbadians – the uncapped pair of fast bowler Ruel Brathwaite and improving all-rounder Jamar “Butter Beans” Griffith, who bowls left-arm spin, were among the contenders on the short-list of which each squad has four reserves.

Both Brathwaite and Griffith took part in the just concluded Barbados five-match trials.

Brathwaite recently returned home from England after completing his Master of Philosophy (MPHIL) in Engineering for Sustainable Development at Cambridge University, having also attended Dulwich College and Loughborough University on leaving leading local school, Queen’s College.

The sources further pointed out that yet another Barbadian, left-arm spinner Anderson Sealy, who was not at national trials, along with fast bowler Gilford Moore of Guyana, all-rounder Kjorn Ottley (Trinidad & Tobago) and Windward Islander Delorn Johnson of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, are among the reserves.

Ottley, a left-hand top order batsman and occasional off-spinner and Johnson, a left-arm pacer and left-hand lower order batsman, both formerly played in the regional Under-19 championship.

The 37-year-old Reifer, Phillips, Austin and Walton represented West Indies against Bangladesh in the Caribbean a few months ago following the on-going contracts row between the West Indies Cricket Board and West Indies Players Association, while Reifer, Walton and McClean toured South Africa for the recent ICC Champions Trophy.

Wilkinson, 28, who like Reifer, played the majority of his regional first-class and one-day matches for Barbados, toured South Africa with a West Indies one-day squad on 2003-04.

CCC are competing in Zone ‘A’, along with Jamaica, title holders Trinidad & Tobago and Windward Islands, while Zone ‘B’ comprises Barbados, Guyana, Leeward Islands and West Indies Under-19.

The WICB stipulated that all of the teams be submitted by October 9.

The teams are slated to assemble in Georgetown on October 26 before the hectic tournament, designed along the lines of the ICC Champions Trophy, opens two days later.

CCC squad: Floyd Reifer (captain), Omar Phillips, Kurt Wilkinson, Nekoli Parris, Jamal Smith, Ryan Austin, Jason Bennett, Khismar Catlin, Kevin McClean (Barbados), Romel Currency (St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Windward Islands) Simon Jackson, Chadwick Walton, Gavin Wallace (Jamaica), Kavesh Kantasingh (Trinidad & Tobago).

Officials: Floyd Reifer (player/coach), Horton Dolphin (Manager), Steven Leslie (Assistant Manager), Andrew Simpson (Physio/Trainer). NB: All apart from Dolphin, a Guyanese who has lived in Jamaica for many years, are Barbadians.
