Shane steps up
He may be the baby of the team but diminutive wicketkeeper/batsman Shane Dowrich is starting to stand tall already.
After showcasing his repertoire of strokes for champions St James in the C.O. Williams Parish Competition, Dowrich, who was preferred to the more experienced Carlo Morris and Patrick Browne, thrilled spectators with a few cameo knocks in the just ended UWI Cave Hill T20 Festival.
He is yet to make a significant score but the positive manner in which he has approached each innings so far is an encouraging sign that the little dynamo could explode when Barbados begin their campaign in the Caribbean T20 in Antigua on Thursday against the Netherlands.
Here, Dowrich punching a delivery off the backfoot.
