None other than recently discarded West Indies fast bowler Jermaine Lawson is helping launch the 2010 New York season which gets cracking this current weekend with the lucrative Sam’s Food Stores Twenty20 showdown currently underway at Whitestone Park in the Bronx.
Lawson has had issues with the West Indies and Jamaican selectors since he was ordered to have remedial work on his action by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The paceman who famously bowled West Indies to victory over Australia seven years ago with a devastating spell in Antigua, is the latest West Indian to turn his attention to United States competition after his home team turned its back on him.
Lawson is carrying Enforcers challenge for the bumper first prize of $5000 in which seven other teams are in contention. The two-day competition which starts today (April 10) with the preliminaries and conludes Sunday with the semi-finals and final, l also features fast rising T20 specialist New York side Destroyers which emerged with a bang last year. Sam’s All Stars, Strikers, Bolling Brook, Pak America, Punjab and Prince are the other teams.
A number of United States senior and junior team players are in action including Kevin Darlington, Clain Williams and Akeem Dodson for the Guyana flavored Destroyers and Glen Hall and Oneil Powell for the mostly Jamaica.
New York Destroyers
Barrington Bartley, Theron Blair, Manraj Seepersaud, Azeemuddin Khan, George Adams, Akeem Dodson, Zaheer Saffie, Dwayne Smith, Kevin Darlington, Clain Williams, Dennis Evans, Javain Thomas, Andrew Gonsalves, Twain Walter, Khaleem Bux.
