Players and Coaches from across the Americas region selected for their chance to impress
The International Cricket Council (ICC) listed its squad for Phase 1 of the ICC Americas Cricket Combine that will be held in Indianapolis, USA from September 18– 21.
A select number of players from Phase 1 will be added to Phase 2 of the Combine that will take place in Indianapolis from September 24 – 27. An ICC Americas representative team will then be selected to play in the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) Nagico Super 50 tournament in January 2016, after which the best performing players could receive an opportunity to trial for the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
An online application process was launched in June for Phase 1, with eligible players encouraged to submit information and videos highlighting their performances. Several hundred applications were received and assessed by a coaching panel coordinated by ICC Americas High Performance Consultant, Tom Evans and ICC High Performance Manager, Richard Done, and 83 players have been selected.
Six coaches from within the ICC Americas Region were part of this panel, and will also attend the Combine to work alongside West Indies great Courtney Walsh and internationally renowned fielding coach Mike Young. The regional coaches include Derek Perera, Errol Barrow, Rupert Stephenson (Canada), Anand Tummala, Thiru (Kenny) Kumaran (USA) and Lorenzo Tucker (Bermuda).
In announcing the squad, Evans said: “We were encouraged by the amount of interest in the online process and the quality of applications received, while I’m sure the selected players will now be striving for a place in Phase 2.
“We’re looking forward to an exciting week in Indianapolis, and with the support of Courtney, Mike and a talented group of regional coaches, it should be a great experience for everyone involved.”
