Borde happy to work with Windies A
 

Beausejour, St Lucia – Newly appointed West Indies A Team Manager Colin Borde is delighted to be playing a part in the development of West Indies cricket.

“It is good to be playing a part in the development of West Indies cricket and to work with these young up-and-coming players who are extremely talented and who I believe will take West Indies cricket to higher heights,” the former Trinidad and Tobago Team Manager said.

“I have gotten to know most of these players over the past couple of years and it is good to see they are being rewarded and developing in their profession and justifying their selections,” Borde added.

The West Indies A Team today completed a tense 1 wicket victory over Bangladesh A in the Second Digicel ‘Test’ at Beausejour to take the two match Digicel Series 1-0 after a drawn opening Digicel ‘Test’ in Antigua.

“It was a tight series but what is obvious is that the players are learning and learning quickly the are recognizing that to achieve at the highest level they need to maximise their potential by minimising their mistakes,” said the 47 year old cricket administrator.

Borde said that he was impressed with the all rounder performance of Andre Russell and the work ethic of senior player Danza Hyatt but as a group all the players worked well with each other.

“I see players who are very hungry for success, they are young and committed and while they need to do some more work before their skills are refined they have bright futures ahead once they dedicate the time and energies to their development,” added Borde who is the holder of a commercial pilot’s license.

Mohammed Sohrawordi took the Digicel Man of the Match award for the Second Digicel Test while Russell was named Digicel Man of the Series. Both players were rewarded with Blackberries from Digicel.

The two teams will now contest two Digicel Twenty20s before moving to St Vincent for three Digicel One Day matches.
