WI hands retainer contracts to Seales, McCoy
Cricket West Indies have offered international retainer contracts for 2022-23 for both men and women. Amongst the new entrants in men’s cricket include Jayden Seales, Obed McCoy and Odean Smith.
"For 2022-23, CWI has changed the Men's retainer contract structure to offer player contracts across all formats of cricket, compared to specific red or white-ball contracts in previous years. The offer of retainer contracts to all players follows an Evaluation Period of performances from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022, which is also supported by statistics from the previous 2019 - 2020 Evaluation Period. This allows for all players to be appraised immediately after the Evaluation Period and provides a notice period before new contracts start on 1 July 2022. The system is designed to reward hard work and performance results," stated CWI on Tuesday, June 28.
West Indies Men: Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Kraigg Brathwaite, Joshua Da Silva, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Obed McCoy, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Hayden Walsh Jr.
"Congratulations to all the players who have been offered contracts. We think this is a dynamic group, with the right mixture of experience and youthfulness to properly represent the people of the Caribbean. With general retainer contracts, it gives us a pool of talented and dedicated cricketers, who can take West Indies cricket forward in years to come," said Men's lead selector Desmond Haynes.
Likewise, contracts have been presented to 18 Women players as well, amongst which six are developmental contracts.
West Indies Women: Aaliyah Alleyne, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Chinelle Henry, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack, Shakera Selman, Stafanie Taylor
Development contracts: Kaysia Shultz, Rashada Williams, Jannillea Glasgow, Shabika Gajnabi, Cherry Ann Fraser, Mandy Mangru
"The selectors have placed a great focus on the young developing players because these are the ones who will help to build the team as we look towards the future. The panel believes that the combination of experienced players and the emerging players will give a good base as we continue to prepare teams for international matches and the T20 World Series early next year," said the Women's lead selector Ann Browne-John.
