Qayyum and Bernard Keep it Cool!

Now admittedly Ealing born Imran Qayyum has been around the second XIs, played for the Unicorns and popped up in Pakistan but I think it’s fair to say that he and Canterbury born Hugh Bernard probably didn’t expect to make their List A debuts in Coolidge, Antigua.

Well you’d better believe it because that’s what happened, their Cricinfo profile pages will forever prove it…

Former coach Jimmy Adams was no doubt responsible for Kent being the team to make up the numbers in this year’s WICB Regional Super50. For the likes of England hopefuls Daniel Bell-Drummond, Sam Northeast and Matt Coles, it’s a great opportunity to gain some exposure on foreign soil and almost taste a flavour of international cricket. It’ll be interesting to see what affect this outing has on Kent’s performances come the English county season.

Of course it’s not that long ago (Well 2000-01) that England A, boosted by Ian Ward’s run-making exploits, turned out in the Busta Cup.

Perusing the WICB Regional Super50 squads there are some interesting names amongst the teams including Jonathan Foo (Guyana), fresh from playing in the Hong Kong T20 Blitz, Kamau Leverock (ICC Americas XI), nephew of both Dwayne Leverock…

… and of Canada’s Austin Codrington, Steven Taylor (Jamaica), i.e. not Americas XI, and Chesney Hughes (Leeward Islands), formerly of Derbyshire but now cap chasing trans atlantic.
