“Now that I have been in the position at the Sagicor WIHPC for more than 12 months, I feel I’m more confident about the knowledge of players and understanding of how a talented, young player in the Caribbean develops and is looking to the develop,” he said.

“I’ve also had the benefit of watching some of the players in regional matches and looking to see how we can help them improve for the benefit of cricket at the regional, as well as the international level.”

He added: “We will need to spend some time initially on the players’ skills, fitness and developing their all-round game before stepping up their preparation to deal with competitive situations.

“The batting in the regional matches is a good example of an area that we can really improve. We have footage of when the players have potentially made some mistakes this year and when they have performed well, and use these as opportunities for instruction.”

The new squad will be encamped from June 1 at the Sagicor WIHPC’s facilities located at the University of the West Indies campus here.

The HPC programme has been broadened to focus more intensely on developing the mental prowess of the players in addition to the standard rigorous training in skills development and fitness required for high performance athletes.

The players will also benefit from specialised training in a number of other areas including their roles as ambassadors, personal development, anti-doping, anti-corruption and media skills.

The 2013 programme will conclude in December this year.
