It is little surprise that West Indies opener, Dale Richards, went for a first ball duck, having returned to the Windies team for the Digicel Twenty20 after he was dropped for the Third Digicel One Day International.
Richards did not have a particularly good time preparing for the game after Daren Hobson, a net bowler, bowled him during the Windies preparatory net session.
15 year old Hobson – a Leeward Islands Under 15 player – was also the Digicel guest at the toss of the Digicel Twenty20 at Warner Park in St Kitts.
The Basseterre based Washington Archibald High School student, who is also a member of the Digicel-sponsored Keith Arthurton Cricket Center, said he thoroughly enjoyed his experience both as a net bowler and as the Digicel guest at the toss.
“It felt really good to meet the two captains face-to-face, but I also met all the players and chatted with them when I was a net bowler during the practice sessions,” said the medium pace all rounder, who has a highest score of 89 for his native St Kitts against Montserrat in the Leeward Islands Under 15 Tournament which was played in Antigua.
