Hooper surpised by Sagicor HPC talent pool

Bridgetown, Barbados– Carl Hooper, the former Guyana and West Indies captain, and newly appointed Batting Coach of the Sagicor High Performance Centre said he is genuinely surprised by the talent pool at the HPC.

“The amount of talent I am seeing here (at the Sagicor HPC) has surprised me. I was away [from West Indies] for a while and you would see the game on television, but now that you get close and actually see the guys playing it is clear there is still a lot of talent around,” said Hooper who lives in Australia.
