Ambris selection shows the value of playing domestic cricket

BRIDGETOWN: The selection of Windward Islands player Sunil Ambris to the West Indies cricket team for the remaining three Seagrams ODIs against India shows the value of playing in the domestic cricket series. Ambris gets into the mix after playing excellent cricket in the Regional Super50 cricket tournament. A tournament that has been overlooked by many of the senior players who opted for other assignments.  Chairman of selectors Courtney Browne speaking on the inclusion of both Ambris and Kyle Hope out of Barbados said :”Sunil Ambris and Kyle Hope are two very promising young batsmen who have been selected on the basis of strong performances in our competitions.  “Kyle opened on our last “A” Team One-Day tour to Sri Lanka and had some very good performances. In addition, he also had a good showing opening the batting for the Trinidad & Tobago Red Force franchise in this year’s PCL competition  Sunil did well in our Regional Super50 One-Day tournament and also had a good showing in this year’s PCL first-class tournament for Windward Islands Volcanoes and therefore will fit within our middle order. They will be up against a good Indian team and they have an opportunity to show their skills and contribute to a stronger team performance.” Browne’s comments indicates that the selectors are also ready and willing to reward good performances in the domestic tournament. The current selection panel more than any has given opportunities to many of the regional players who have done well in the domestic circuit. Jason Mohammed out of Trinidad got on because he was performing consistently well for T&T Red Force, so to did Guyanese players Vishaul Singh and Rajendra Chandrika.
