Eight top players have been selected for the final round of the ICC Americas Cricket Combine, held at the Indianapolis World Sports Park. Close to 70 players were evaluated with eight players selected to participate in Phase Two of the Combine, which will take place September 25-27. An additional four players were provisionally selected to participate in Phase Two.
ICC Cricket Hall of Famer Courtney Walsh coached fast-bowlers and led one side in Monday’s Twenty20 intra-squad match.
“It has been very competitive,” said Walsh. “The way they are playing over the past three days, you’d think they had played together before…the intensity they have shown has been tremendous.”
The selected players include Jamaican-born Timroy Allen, Guyanese-born Jeremy Gordon, Muhammad Ahsan Ali Khan, Jasdeep Singh, Alex Amsterdam, Anirrudh Reddy Saddi, Danial Ahmed and Prumjot Panesar.
Phase Two will commence Friday, September 25 at the World Sports Park, when a pre-selected group of the best cricketers in the Western Hemisphere will join the eight players advancing from Phase One. Players selected will participate in the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) Nagico Super 50 tournament in January 2016.
