West Indies Test Captain Kraigg Brathwaite has pledged his support to young cricketers, offering to be an ambassador to inspire boys and girls in their journey to become top cricketers.
“I want to offer my support to young cricketers in Barbados and all across the West Indies, especially at primary school and Under-13 levels, where it is all about enjoyment and learning the game,” said Brathwaite, fresh from the recent Apex Test series to help West Indies beat England and secure the Richards-Botham Trophy.
” I want to also inspire a young generation of cricketers and help to play my part as an ambassador for West Indies cricket,” he said.
The all-rounder was speaking with Barbados Minister of Sports, Charles Griffith recently.
“It was a tremendous victory over England. It was a hard-fought series and we played great cricket to win the Richards-Botham Trophy for the first time,” he said.
Brathwaite was the mainstay of West Indies batting in the three-match Test series. He topped the batting charts with 341 runs at an impressive average of 81 runs per innings, which included a top score of 160 — his first Test century on home soil at Kensington Oval in Barbados and 10th overall.
