Sarwan, Beaton bought by Knight Riders, Tallawahs buys Foo
Yesterday in Barbados several players were bought by the six Franchises at the 2016 CPL Draft and nine Guyanese were among those snapped up.
The Warriors, one of the weaker Franchises this year, surprisingly spent the maximum US$160,000 for Pakistan International Sohail Tanvir.
The 31 year-old has played two Tests, 62 ODIs and 50 t20 Internationals. The left-handed all rounder who has been picked more for his bowling is yet to score a century in International cricket and his 5-48 at the ODI level is his only International five-wicket haul.
Apart from Tanvir, Chris Gayle, Keiron Pollard, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo and David Miller were the highest paid for each team fetching $160,000 each.
Six of the Guyanese were bought by Warriors which will be coached by former Guyana and West Indies off-spinning all-rounder Roger Harper who replaces another former Guyana and West Indies player Carl Hooper.
All-rounder Chris Barnwell is the highest paid Guyanese earning $30,000 while Veerasammy Permaul, Assad Fudadin, Anthony Bramble, Steven Jacobs and Paul Wintz were the other Guyanese going to the Warriors.
Former West Indies Captain Ramnaresh Sarwan makes a return to cricket at 35 for the Trinidad & Tobago Franchise Knight Riders who has also bought pacer Ronsford Beaton.
Jonathon Foo, who could be considered unfortunate not to be picked by the Guyana Jaguars for the Super50 tournament, was snapped by the Jamaica Tallawahs for $7,000. Foo had a successful CGI’s 50 overs Local Franchise League scoring the most runs including a century.
Warriors’ picks: Sohail Tanvir, Martin Guptill ($130,000), Dwayne Smith ($11,000), Chris Lynn ($90,000), Reyad Emrit ($70,000), Adam Zampa ($80,000), Jason Mohamed ($40,000), Chris Barnwell ($30,000), Veerasammy Permaul ($15,000), Orlando Peters ($10,000), Assad Fudadin ($7,000 ), Anthony Bramble ($7,000 ), Steven Katwaroo ($4,000), Steven Jacobs ($5,000), Paul Wintz ($5,000) Muhammad Ahsan Ali Khan ($3,000).
Adam Zampa, the 23-year-old Australian whose only two ODIs were played this month against New Zealand and 25-year-old Pakistan born ICC Americas pacer Muhammad Ahsan Ali Khan are also in the Warriors squad. (Sean Devers)
