Former West Indies batter will work in the upcoming high performance camp as preparation for the Under-19 World Cup next year
“Shiv has a tremendous amount of cricketing knowledge and know-how and he will be a great addition to the coaching staff,” Jimmy Adams, CWI’s director of cricket said. “We already have another icon of the game in Sir Curtly Ambrose, who has been involved with the squad since the camp in August, as well as several other outstanding coaches.”
The selectors have picked 28 players for this camp after the last one and some trial matches held in August. The squad includes two newcomers in Jaden Leacock, a right-arm fast-medium bowler and right-hand batter, and Kevin Wickham, a right-hand batter and right-arm wristspinner.
“Having had a month-long camp in Antigua in August followed by the 18-man West Indies Under-19 squad tour of England, I am looking forward to see the continued progress and improvements of the various players as well as to interact with them to understand their thinking and approach to the game,” Robert Haynes, CWI’s lead selector for the Under-19s said.
“The two-week camp will include four practice matches along with continued skills and physical development, and it’s an opportunity for all players invited to stake a claim for selection for the series at home and the ICC Under19 Cricket World Cup.”
