Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : December 24th 2013 Contents KINGSTON---Former
national batsman and
newly appointed mem-
ber of the Jamaica senior
selection panel, Wayne
Lewis, believes it is high
time that more national
players made the transi-
tion to West Indies rep-
"Having seen what has
transpired in recent years,
where the national team
has been winning regional
titles, but we have not had
enough players going on
to represent the region, it
needs to be changed," said
"As a country, I believe
we have a lot of talented
players, but for one reason
or another they have
struggled to make the
transition. This for me is
unacceptable and now
that I am a member of
the selection panel, the
hope is that we can
change this going for-
ward," added Lewis.
Jamaica, who were
dethroned as West Indies
Cricket Board Four-day
and Super50 titles earlier
this year, currently have
three national represen-
tatives on the West Indies
squad, which is currently
touring New Zealand.
They are batsman
Marlon Samuels, young
left-arm pacer Sheldon
Cotterrell, and wicket-
keeper Chadwick Walton.
The number is down
from four, who began the
tour, after the recent
withdrawal of opener
Chris Gayle due to injury.
However, prior to Cot-
terrell and Walton, who
is yet to make his inter-
national debut, being
called-up recently, only
Samuels and Gayle have
been permanent fixtures.
Others who have got
opportunities and have
failed to make solid
impressions include Carl-
ton Baugh Jr, Xavier Mar-
shall, David Bernard Jr,
Donovan Pagon, Brenton
Parchment, Danza Hyatt,
Shawn Findlay, and young
Lewis, who averaged
30.16 in 32 first-class
matches for Jamaica and
who was recently elected
as a director of the
Jamaica Cricket Associ-
ation, is one of four new-
comers on the new five-
member selection panel.
The others are new
chairman and outgoing
national Under-19 chair-
man of selectors, Wavell
Hinds; Courtney Walsh;
and former national bats-
man, Cleveland David-
Former national captain
Delroy Morgan, who
served on the two previ-
ous selection panels, is
the other member.
The newly appointed
officials replace out-going
chairman Courtnay Daley,
who did not seek re-elec-
tion, as well as new West
Indies Under-19 assistant
coach, Robert Samuels.
