3 Jamaicans in Windies B squad for Summerfest in Canada
Three Jamaicans have been named in a 14-member West Indies B squad for the Cricket Canada Summerfest from August 29 to September 7.
The Jamaicans in the squad are John Campbell, Derval Green, Jeavor Royal.
The team will play a series to include four T20s (including a warm-up) along with two 50-overs matches. A West Indies "B" Team was in Canada a few months ago and was a beaten finalist in the inaugural Global T20.
Fresh from an exciting 102 runs from 58 balls, Kimani Melius, the leading run-scorer for the Under 19 Championship now on in St Vincent is part of the squad for this 9-day tournament.
Cricket West Indies (CWI) Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said, “the upcoming West Indies “B” tour to Canada will provide another opportunity for our young players to gain experience in the shorter formats. The itinerary comprises both Twenty20 and 50 overs-a-side formats and has allowed CWI to have a look at players who are not involved with the ongoing CPL. This tournament has the potential to assist our player development processes by exposing more of our younger players to more competitive environments.”
