Saqlain Mushtaq to conduct clinic for West Indies spinners
Published on August 29, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- Former Pakistan player and international spin bowling consultant Saqlain Mushtaq has been engaged by the West Indies Cricket Board to conduct an extensive spin bowling clinic for current and emerging West Indian players.

Twelve male spin bowlers from various age groups, along with three West Indies Women’s players, will participate in the three week clinic which will commence on September 3 in Barbados. The clinic has been organized at the request of West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson as part of the general upskilling of both active international players and players who are likely to come into contention for West Indies selection at various levels.

The spin bowlers selected to participate in the clinic are:

Devendra Bishoo
Jesse Bootan
Yannic Cariah
Bryan Charles
Akeem Dewar
Larry Edwards
Ramaal Lewis
Anisa Mohammed
Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai
Ashley Nurse
Veerasammy Permaul
Shaquana Quintyne
Shane Shillingford
Stafanie Taylor
Jomel Warrican

Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree (participation in the Champions League T20) and Nikita Miller (pre-arranged personal engagement) were considered for participation in the clinic but are not available. Miller will depart with the West Indies A Limited Overs squad to India as scheduled.

Permaul and Nurse will leave the clinic on September 10th for departure to India with the West Indies A Limited Overs squad. Shillingford will depart the clinic on September 20th to join the West Indies A Team in India for the ‘Test’ series.

The participants were selected by the WICB Selection Panel, chaired by Clyde Butts. The clinic concludes on September 21st.

Mushtaq, widely regarded as the pioneer of the now famous doosra, played 49 Tests and 169 One Day Internationals, taking a total of 496 wickets over a nine year international career. He also serves as spin bowling consultant to Bangladesh.

The WICB attempted to engage legendary former West Indies spinner Lance Gibbs to co-facilitate the clinic but he was unfortunately not available for personal reasons.
