Kirk Edwards withdrawn from Barbados team for NAGICO Super50

The West Indies Cricket Board today advised that batsman and former captain Kirk Edwards has been withdrawn from the Barbados team for the NAGICO Super50 tournament.

The decision was made by the Barbados Cricket Association on Saturday. There will be no replacement for Edwards, who was due to return home this evening.

Barbados play their opening Zone B match against Trinidad & Tobago at Queen’s Park Oval today. First ball is 2 pm (1pm Jamaica Time).

Edwards, 29, a current West Indies Test and One-Day player, was replaced as the Barbados captain for both the NAGICO tournament and the forthcoming first-class four-day championship of which Barbados are the title holders.

Batting all-rounder Kevin Stoute is leading the side in the NAGICO tournament, while Test opener Kraigg Brathwaite will be at the helm for the four-day championship, which is slated to start February 28.(Barbados Cricket Association)

    I don’t know the reason, but it was quite clear that there was some ambiguity in what the BCA said and what he said. Knowing how our administrators treat player that speak out, I predicted he would not last long in the team.
