Fidel joins Sunfoil Dolphins
DURBAN – West Indies pacer Fidel Edwards has joined the South African club Sunfoil Dolphins to compete in the MiWay T20 Challenge.
The 30-year-old joins the KwaZulu-Natal franchise for their remaining group games as a replacement for injured Australian Shaun Tait.
Edwards, who joins Jamaican Chris Gayle at the Sunfoil Dolphins, may miss the tournament’s play-offs as he is expected to be selected for the West Indies home series against Australia.
At a news conference in Durban yesterday, Edwards said he hoped to help the Dolphins qualify for the Champions League T20 later this year in India.
“I’m not here to fool around. I’m here to bring entertainment to the fans and take the cricket forward and add some good value to the Dolphins,” Edwards said.
“I think it’s my fourth time here and I’ve always had a good stay here, so hopefully I can bring something extra to the Dolphins and hopefully take them through to the Champions League (CLT20),” he added. (www.wiplayers.com)
