The 17-year-old Browne gained his recognition after creditable performances for St. Vincent and the Grenadines at the Windwards Under-17 level, which gained him selection to the Windwards team to the TCL West Indies tournament in Jamaica.

He then forced his way into the St. Vincent and the Grenadines senior team to the Windwards competition which was staged in St. Lucia.

This, on the back of some good scores in the domestic competitions.

After receiving his awards, which saw him named also among the five top cricketers of the year, Browne told SEARCHLIGHT that he was happy for the recognition.

A fourth form student of the Emmanuel High School Mesopotamia, Browne, whose cricketing talents were first highlighted by the late Neil Williams, wants to continue producing runs at the top of the order.

“I want first to make the Windwards senior team and then go on to play for the West Indies,” Browne who plays for local Premier Division outfit, Victors One, said.
