Going with pace
IT IS back to the fast lane for Barbados. Long-serving coach Dexter Toppin says Barbados will be reverting to an old strategy of pace like fire in this year’s Regional Under-19 One-Day Cricket Championship which bowls off in Jamaica, tomorrow.
In an interview with NATIONSPORT at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday morning before the 14-man team left, Toppin identified Keon Harding, Chemar Holder, Shamar Springer and Dominic Drakes as the four fast bowlers, who can create a stir on pitches which should offer assistance to the pacers.
“I think they are very talented. You have Harding, who is bowling very fast, Shamar Springer is there and also Chemar Holder, who I think is a young kid on the block from St Leonard’s. I think he has a fair steam of pace and also Dominic Drakes, who is an exciting young allround cricketer,” Toppin noted.
