Austin aims to be top bowler for 2012

Bridgetown, Barbados – As he prepares for the start of the 2012 West Indies Cricket Board’s Regional Four-day Tournament, Ryan Austin the Combined Campuses & Colleges off-spinner, says he is looking to continue from where he left off last year.

Gavin Williams to replace Martin

ST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC -- Rookie batsman Gavin Williams will lead a 13-man Leeward Islands side for their first match of the Regional Four-Day Championship against Guyana starting Friday.

The 27-year-old right-hander has played only seven first class matches since making his debut two years ago.

He takes over from West Indies leg-spinner Anthony Martin who led the side in the recent Caribbean Twenty20 campaign when Leewards failed to make it past the preliminary round.

PINK ball a big hit with Pollard

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- West Indies allrounder Kieron Pollard says he is looking forward to the prospect of playing with the innovative pink balls in the WICB Regional Four-Day Championship starting later this week.

The big-hitting right-hander will line up for Trinidad and Tobago when they face Combined Campuses and Colleges in Barbados at the 3Ws Oval.

“I am excited to be on the Trinidad and Tobago team for this weekend. I have never played a match with the PINK ball before so for me this is something special,” said Pollard.
