CRICKET: Lambert says Jamaica Franchise 14-man squad is an improvement

Former national one-day captain, Tamar Lambert, believes the 14-man squad named to represent the Jamaica Franchise during this month's WICB/NAGICO Insurance Super50 Tournament is an improvement on last year's selections.

The squad, which is currently in training for the January 15 to 25 competition, sees the return of big-hitting batsman Danza Hyatt.

And there’s also the inclusion of five players, who are yet to gain regional one-day caps.

They are leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, young fast bowler Marquino Mindley, left-arm wrist spinner, Dennis Bulli, pace bowling all-rounder, Derval Green, and unheralded left-arm seamer, Gavan Brown.

Lambert says the team is balanced and Hyatt’s return ensures the presence of a senior specialist.

Jamaica, who were led by all-rounder David Bernard Jr last season, bowed out of the tournament at the semi-final stage after being bowled out for 49, and losing by seven wickets to hosts Trinidad.

This year, the team has been drawn in Group B along with Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, Leeward Islands Hurricanes, and guest team West Indies Under-19s.
