Shallow answers Windwards call

He still has to go through another elimination process to get on to the 13 for the first match against Barbados, January 7 to 10 at the 3W’s Oval. If he makes the squad, it will be interesting to see how he fares.

His name is Hyron Shallow. He has been something of a strange character in the cricket circles for the past five years or so. But there seems to some motivational factors that keep him going. {{more}}

Wherever there is cricket, you can bet Hyron Shallow will be around, whether it’s softball, on the street on a holiday, or leisure time. For him, it seems that cricket is the only thing that matters.

He made his debut last year, but did not come to grips with the situation and fueled the argument about the type of cricket he was playing. That was at the Bottlers First Division for his team Matthias United.

Shallow dominated that section with both bat and ball.

He was one of five cricketers of the year, two years in succession, and his call-up to the Windwards has added to his eligibility for the award of Sports Man and/or Sports Personality for 2004.

Shallow is one of six newcomers to the Windwards squad in preparation for the 2005 Carib Cup.

He is joined on the newcomers list by Grenadian opener Marvin Noel, legspinner Camillus Alexander, Dominican batsman Ezekiel Francis, and St. Lucians opener Sergio Fedee, and fast bowler Xavier Gabriel.

Dominican fast bowler Jean Paul, Vincentians Kenroy Peters and Deighton Butler, and St. Lucian Darren Sammy add to the line-up with Shane Shillingford retained to do the spin with captains Lewis and Alexander.

The squad will look for runs from Devon Smith, recalled Vincentian opener Reynold Mclean, Craig Emmanuel, and West Indies wicketkeeper Junior Murray.

Liam Sebastien is expected to play the all-rounder’s role, with his father Lockhart managing the party. Ian Allen serves as coach.
