CRICKET West Indies (CWI) Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams threw his support behind the young Caribbean stars who have yet another opportunity to showcase their skills in the 2021 Caribbean Premier League (CPL). There are additional developmental opportunities for some of the best young West Indians in the ninth edition of the CPL, which takes place in St Kitts later this year. Each CPL franchise will have to field an Emerging Player a minimum of five times during the tournament, ensuring that these players get at least some competitive playing experience and the opportunity to train with some of the best players and coaches from across the Caribbean and around the world.
The list of 12 retained and drafted players includes recent West Indies Men’s Test and T20I debutants Joshua Da Silva and Kevin Sinclair who will feature for the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Guyana Amazon Warriors respectively. At a relatively young age, these two players have notably risen through the CWI development ranks in the last 18 months since featuring for the victorious West Indies Emerging team in the 2019 CG Insurance Super50 Cup.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime. cricketwindies.com/forum/
