ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies (CWI) hosted the Professional Cricketers Draft for 2022-2023 on Friday, which took place over two rounds via a videocall with representatives from all six Territorial Board Franchises. Each team had 13 retained players and then drafted two players to complete their 15-member squads for the forthcoming 2022-23 season to compete in the CG United Super50 Cup and the West Indies Championship.

Two key picks saw allrounder Justin Greaves and wicket-keeper Tevyn Walcott being chosen by the Windward Islands Volcanoes. Both have played first-class cricket for the Barbados Pride. Greaves was also a member of the Emerging Players team which won the CG United Super50 Cup back in 2019.

The other franchises all picked players from their home territories. Barbados Pride selected off-spinner Chaim Holder and batter Zachary McCaskie; Guyana Harpy Eagles chose experienced left-handed batter Vishaul Sigh and allrounder Antony Adams; Trinidad & Tobago Red Force selected for batter Jyd Goolie and allrounder Tion Webster; Jamaica Scorpions picked right-arm pacer Gordon Bryan and newcomer Khari Campbell, a left-arm fast-medium bowler; while the Leeward Islands Hurricanes added allrounder Karima Gore and uncapped keeper Daren Benta.

Who are the Barbados Pride selectors, why was Moseley selected?
Roshon Primus must have done something wrong, to be omitted.

Now that they are on this list I assume Rahkeem Cornwall and Shannon Gabriel have lost their red ball central contracts and Darren Bravo has lost his white ball contract?

Still a bit of a shame that there's no added/invited teams to participate in the Super50 and offer more opportunities to more players.

Except the Volcanoes.

And then fans will support their home teams and then they will all fight for their own players who show a little life to be included in WI teams.

An then ...... the infighting gets intolerable on this MB smile

All the more reason to include a CCC/WI'B' team, give more opportunities to others.

These regional retainers should only be confirmed once players have passed fitness tests.

CWI need to make an executive decision and direct the franchises for the sake of our cricket to invest in younger players. No player should be drafted that is over 30-years old unless they represented CWI within the past year or were injured and is coming back from injury. Players like Carter, Johnson, Cotty, khan, etc... should not be drafted because they have zero chance of playing for CWI. Time for the franchise administrators to wake up and invest in the future.

The jury will remain out until VOR shows up and voices his opinion.
