Gray impressed with performances at 2017 CPL

Gray, in a telephone interview on Monday, hailed the performances of Guyana Amazon Warriors wicketkeeper/ batsman Chadwick Walton (who was named as the Most Valuable Player), Amazon Warriors’ leftarm pacer Sohail Tanvir, and the Knight Riders’ pair of leg-spinner Shadab Khan and off-spinner Sunil Narine.

“I think that Chadwick Walton was remarkable,” said Gray. “To leave a franchise like the Jamaica Tallawahs to go to a new franchise, and perform the way he did, he got the most runs in the tournament, 458 runs, is remarkable.

Somebody like Shadab Khan, who is perhaps one of the best emerging players in the world, I thought they handled themselves very well. (Kevon) Cooper, in the final game, was absolutely brilliant.”

This was the first time that the Tarouba venue was used for matches at this magnitude, but there were some teething problems, including access roads to and from the venue, and general parking. But Gray was pleased with the venue, from a cricketing point of view.
