VINCY BOWLERS ON WICB PAYROLL
Kesrick Williams, Jomel Warrican and Delorn Johnson, these are three talented Vincentian bowlers you should definitely be on the lookout for. These guys are currently working for the West Indies Cricket Board and show a lot of promise. Williams has just completed the T20 series against Pakistan on Tuesday 27th September 2016, Warrican made his test debut against Pakistan on Friday 30th September 2016 in a One Day International match, and Johnson will be on assignment with the West Indies ‘A’ team Tour of Sri Lanka from October 4th to 30th.
Kesrick Omari Williams (pictured above) is a fast-medium right arm bowler who replaced Andre Russel in the West Indies T20 squad against Pakistan in Dubai. He introduced himself to the world with two quick wickets in the third and final T20 match, on Tuesday 27th September . He removed openers Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif in a spell of four overs, costing just 15 runs. He earned himself a well deserved Haier Achievement Award with his performance.
Jomel Warrican is a left arm slower bowler. He does not currently live in St. Vincent although he was born here and his father is Vincentian; Dr Joel Warrican, Director of The Division of Academic Programming and Delivery (APAD) at the Open Campus University of The West Indies. He has played for The Barbados National Cricket Team, Combine Campuses and Colleges and The West Indies Under 19. He has been awarded several honourable awards for his continually impressive performance throughout the years.
Delorn Johnson is the third man being added to the list of illustrious Vincentian bowlers receiving WICB call-up. He is also a left hander, but in the fast lane. Some of his cricketing past includes The St. Vincent national Cricket team, The St Lucia Zoukes, The Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel, The West Indies ‘A’ Team and The West Indies Under 19.
This trio has pushed the number of bowlers for West Indies from St.Vincent into the double figures. Those before them were:
