President of the Nevis Masters’ Cricket Association, Franklyn KUT Daniel, is not a happy trooper.
Daniel has openly expressed disappointment with the showing, or better put, the lack of showing by the over 35 cricketers, at practice sessions.
In a recent post, President Daniel expressed his displeasure:
I am hoping this week players get serious with days of practice. Next week is the tournament we are preparing for, therefore we need to take a more serious approach going into these games.’
Manager of the Master’s Cricket team, Oscar ASTRO Browne, also expressed similar sentiments, when he stated: ‘The turn out to the practice has been disappointing. It begs me to wonder if we will even be able to field one team next weekend.’
The over 35’s have practice sessions scheduled for Monday to Thursday each week, starting at 5 pm.
A match slated for last weekend at the VOJN grounds had to call off, due to a lack of players.
Nevis is expected to field two teams in the upcoming Luther Kelly over 35 tournament, scheduled for the 23rd and 24th of October at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex in St. Kitts.
The Nevis team is the defending champion.
