We’re safe

BARBADOS CRICKET is not in grave danger of losing its best talent.
So says Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) vice-president Conde Riley, who sought to counter the view that England would start to snap up the country’s top young players if they continued to go there on cricketing scholarships.
Riley made the comment in light of Bajan all-rounder Christopher Jordan’s recent selection to an England Lions team that is set to tour the subcontinent for three 50-over matches against Bangladesh ‘A’ later this month.
“We aren’t worried because once they come back home and we believe they can go to the top, we will just contract them from very early and that will mandate that they play for their clubs, Barbados and ultimately the West Indies,” explained Riley, who is challenging Joel Garner for the BCA’s presidency at next Wednesday’s 11th Special Meeting Of Members.
