The Leeward Islands selectors have made what they are calling sweeping changes ahead of the team’s WICB Regional Four-Day Cricket Championship match against the Windward Islands slated to bowl off tomorrow at the Grenada National Stadium.
Four Antiguans Sylvester “BOUNCING” Joseph, Mali Richards, Justin Athanaze and Hayden Walsh Jr. along with Anguilla’s Lyndel Richardson have all been dropped by the selection panel.
Antiguan Orlando “BABY” Peters, Montserrat’s Quinton Boatswain and Jaison Peters, Nevis’ Javier Liburd and Anguilla’s Yannick Leonard replace the dropped players.
Coach of the Leeward Islands and former West Indies wicketkeeper batsman, Ridley Jacobs, said consistency had been a major factor that played against the sub-regional team and hopes the changes will turn their fortune around.
Following their clash against the Windward Islands, the Leeward Islands will tackle Guyana in a game starting April 4th at Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds before Barbados on April 11th at the same venue.
