Six UWI Stars Selected for T20 International: West Indies v Pakistan

For Release Upon Receipt - Thursday, March 30, 2017

The University of the West Indies (The UWI) congratulates the six players from its cricket programmes who have been selected to play in the current T20 International: West Indies v Pakistan series. The West Indies T20 Squad includes all-rounder and captain, Carlos Brathwaite; bowler, Kesrick Williams; batsman, Rovman Powell; bowling all-rounder, Jason Holder; Wicketkeeper and batsman, Chadwick Walton who play for the University’s Combined Campuses & Colleges programme (CCC), while all-rounder Jonathan Carter plays for The UWI’s Cave Hill campus. The T20I: West Indies v Pakistan series runs from March 26th until April 2nd.

Delighted about the selection of the players, Vice-Chancellor of The UWI, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles commented, “The UWI through the CCC has become a core within the West Indies cricket team. Six players on the WICB squad is an excellent example of our students and the University rising to regional representation on the eve of the proposed Faculty of Sport.”

Since his installation, Vice-Chancellor Beckles has renewed the University’s focus on sport as a driver of development in the region. In April 2016, the University hosted its inaugural Sportsman of the Year Award for current students and there are plans to establish a Faculty of Sport in the near future. All four campuses of The UWI offer sporting programmes including training from certificate to masters’ programmes in the pedagogy of sport and this year the CCC celebrates its 10 years of involvement in regional cricket as the programme seeks to take cricket to another level. Testament to the CCC programme’s success is the fact that in recent years The UWI has been producing more cricketers who have graduated to national and franchise teams, West Indies A teams, and senior teams, than any other cricket development programme within the Caribbean region.
