BCA’s boys


Share post:

THE Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) has won its battle to retain cousins Carlos Brathwaite and Jonathan Carter in its squad for the Regional Super50 Cup which starts next week in Guyana.
Following a meeting between Combined Campuses and Colleges’ (CCC) representative Sir Hilary Beckles and BCA?officials on Wednesday, the BCA?issued a Press release yesterday saying the matter has been resolved.
And the CCC has made a volte-face by withdrawing both Brathwaite and Carter from their squad. They have been replaced by West Indies Under-19 all-rounder Kyle Mayers, a Barbadian, and Trinidadian top-order batsman Nicholas Alexis, who were previously named as reserves.
Barbados had selected Brathwaite and Carter in their 14-member squad on September 22 but the CCC, almost two weeks later on October 3, announced the two players in their squad. )EZS)
