National players picked


Share post:

REGIONAL franchises made a mockery of yesterday’s draft for the inaugural West Indies Professional Cricket League (PCL), largely shunning the non-territorial options available and choosing instead to stick with their national players.

Of the 30 players chosen in the draft staged at the Accra Beach Hotel yesterday, only two will play for teams based outside the country of their birth.

Guyanese Ramnaresh Sarwan, the out-of-favour Test batsman, was selected by Trinidad and Tobago as a second-round pick while Barbados all-rounder Raymon Reifer was chosen by Guyana in the first pick of the draft.

Barbados, Jamaica, Leeward Islands and Windward Islands all went for players from their territories.
