Young bat has the shots


Added 15 November 2012


SIX-YEAR-OLD Jaden Webster  is the youngest cricketer  to represent Charles F. Broome in the Guardian General Herman Griffith Primary Schools Competition. After playing one game earlier in the competition,  the Infants B student got his chance to bat yesterday  for the first time when Charles F. Broome played against  Wills Primary at Blenheim “A” and he immediately  showcased his batting ability. Coming to the crease at No.3, the little left-hander made  14 without hitting a boundary as his team made 170 for six  with brothers Reuben Agard and Seth Agard scoring 73 and  31 respectively. Wills were then routed for a meagre 36. Games teacher Alphonso King said that not since  the participation of Barbados cricketer Christopher Jordan sometime ago has someone that young played in the competition, which sees boys as old as 11 years in action. “I wasn’t scared of the bigger boys. A boy was running in from the boundary to bowl and I drive him,” said Webster. (EZS)
