Fourth captaincy stint for Carter, third for Benn in fifth Barbados Pride one-day trial
Bridgetown, Barbados, September 11 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Experienced batting all-rounder Jonathan Carter and veteran left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn will captain the teams in the fifth Barbados Pride one-day trial match at Desmond Haynes Oval on Wednesday, September 12.
It will be the fourth time at the helm for Carter and the third for Benn in the trials, which are in preparation for the Cricket West Indies Super50 Championship to be played in Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago, October 1 to 28.
Barbados will host Zone ‘B’ as well as the semi-finals and Final.
The Pride last won the title in 2016 under the captaincy of West Indies Test and One-Day International skipper, fast bowling all-rounder Jason Holder, and were beaten finalists with Test opener Kraigg Brathwaite as captain last season when the Tournament was played between January 30 and February 24 this year in Barbados and Antigua.
With West Indies touring India next month for two Tests (October 4 to 16), five ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals (October 21 to November 11), several places are up for grabs in the Pride squad, especially in the first half of the Super50 Championship.
There are seven Barbados Pride players in the Test squad - Holder, Brathwaite, wicket-keeper/batsmen Shai Hope and Shane Dowrich, all-rounder Roston Chase, fast bowler Kemar Roach and left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican.
Squads for the ODI and T20 series are yet to be named.
