HOPE AND MOHAMMED BACK IN REGIONAL FRANCHISE TEAM FOR 4DAY CHAMPIONSHIPS

Posted by at 10 November, at 02 : 39 AM Print

St John’s, ANTIGUA – As Round 3 of the Digicel Regional 4Day bowls off, Kyle Hope is back with his regional franchise, the TT Red Force.

Hope who returned to the region recently following his tour with the Windies Men’s team in England and Zimbabwe, got off to a decent start with 68 runs vs the Windward Islands Volcanoes. His score included a six, and eight fours.

Players who have been experiencing varying results on the international team have been recommended to return to the Regional 4Day, where they can regain their form and confidence before being selected back into the Test team. Meanwhile, regional players have always been encouraged to use this tournament as a platform from which to gain selection to the West Indies Senior Men’s team.

Another player also taking heed of the advice is Jason Mohammed, who suffered an injury during the England tour. Mohammed is looking forward to gaining a spot not only in the ODI squad but in the Test team as well. Also playing for the Red Force in the third round, Mohammed posted 113 which included 9 4’s and a 6; and he along with Captain, Denesh Ramdin, who scored 116, gave the Red Force a 213-run partnership before Ramdin fell.

CWI’s Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams is pleased with the change of format saying, “Players now have a longer period of 10 rounds to prove themselves for selection to the WINDIES Senior Team. This gives players the opportunity to press for selection by consistently performing well over a longer period, which is the focus of Test cricket, rather than scoring big over a shorter period.”

The matches in Round 3 continue at the Queen’s park Oval, Warner Park and Sabina Park.
