ED AHMAD CUP
Led by the veteran
all-rounder and former USA skipper Zamin Amin, the Combined XI is
expected to include West Indies stars William Perkins, Ryan Ramdass,
Narsingh Deonarine and Kenroy Peters. In addition, Pakistani hard-hitting
batsman Nadeem Younis has joined the squad, along with Dennison Thomas,
Curtis Baptiste and Amjad Khan.
The Combined XI will be selected from Zamin Amin (Capt.), Narsingh Deonarine, William Perkins, Ryan Ramdass, Dennison Thomas, Kenroy Peters, Curtis Baptiste, Nadeem Younis, L. Seriaux, Tyrone Blair, Amjad Khan, Vernon Dumas and Hunan Munir.
Managed by Peter Jolly, the New York Combined XI has registered a roster of 36 players, including some outstanding players like Kester Sylvester, who recently slammed almost 200 runs in three matches for New York in the regional senior tournament. Sylvester is expected to miss the match against Trinidad & Tobago because of a prior commitment.
It is generally felt that the New York Combined XI may be the team that’s expected to challenge 2007 Ed Ahmad Cup champions Guyana, despite its first-round whipping by the Steve Massiah led squad. Some pundits feel that the Combined XI will peak at the right moment of the tournament, as the star-studded players get to know each other.
Trinidad & Tobago, the 2006 Ed Ahmad champions
are no pushovers, despite losing their first match against Jamaica
at Idlewild Park. With players such as Dave Mohamed and Denis Rampersad,
the calypso boys are expected to give a very good account of themselves
in today’s first fixture at Idlewild. In the second match Guyana
is expected to face off against Barbados at the same venue. That match
starts at 3:00 pm. In the only other fixture today, Jamaica and Pakistan
clash at Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx at 11:00 am.
