    Academy Season Launched! Nominate Your Player To Join

    ACADEMY SET TO LAND IN THE CARIBBEAN

    Season three of World Club Cricket will also see the third installment of an academy series. In previous seasons we have seen the competition take place in the USA and in Africa, this year we will be focussing our attention on the Caribbean and its surrounds. This area is hugely important to WCC with the possiblity of future expansion into this area with a team in the main competition it will be important the people here get involved.
    The academy has been an invaluable part of WCC's success in recent times, nearly all clubs boast stars who have been part of this competition with last years best players including NSW's all rounder B Casson and NZI wicketkeeper batsman J Neill.

    This year will see a slightly shorter competition with four matches deducted from the schedule, there will be 12 matches in each form with 10 teams taking part. With the tournament taking place over 6 weeks it will be a great test for WCC's youngsters.

    Managers now get to nominate a player from their current squad to play in this yeara series, keeping in mind these players will be unavailable for play for your WCC team while they are there. The only restrictions are that the players must be either 24 years or younger, or have played less than 30 games in at least one form. Also note what sort of role you would like your player to play, e.g opening batsman, bowl 1st change etc...

    Remember no one is forced to send a player, it is totally optional.

    WCC Players
    Code:
    Player		Team		Role
    T Weston	Auckland	Middle Order bat and WK
    T Pickworth	Cobras		Bat #3 both forms - bowl 1st or 2nd change

    A Ur-Rehmann	NSW		OD Opening Bat and bowl a bit - Play FC
    S Gillingham	NZI		Bat #5 both forms - Open the bowling both forms
    M Hasan		Queensland	Bat #7 in both forms
    K Franks	SA		Open the bowling and bat as high as possible
    D Cowe		SZI		Open the batting and bowl as little as possible
    -		Tasmania
    C Fernando	Titans		Bat #8 and bowl 2nd change
    None		Victoria	n/a
    Q Adam		WA		Open the bowling in both forms

    Q Adam will go from WA. Want him to take the new pill in both forms of the game.

    EDIT: Does this mean he can't play in the OD game this week? Or is he unavailable from the week after this game? Apologies if it was written in the orginal post, but cbf reading.

    Also, devo Copey didn't get a mention as one of the stars. Was the only good thing about WA cricket last season.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Does Cope even make your starting team in either form? Hardly a star, but yes he did star at the academy.

    Players are still available, they will be until the actually start of the Academy competition which wont be for a week or two, players will appear as unavailable on the injury list when they are gone.

    When is the deadline to send a player to the academy?

    EDIT: Can you also nominate a player to play in only one form of the game during their time at the academy?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
