Brothers fill VPL franchises
Several brothers will be part of the first ever Vincy Premier League, which bowls off today at the Arnos Vale Playing Field.
Heading up the list of kindreds, are the five Browne brothers.
Dean and Salvan are listed in the Soufriere Hikers outfit, with Shem, Razine and Braxie drafted to the Grenadines Divers.
Joining the Browne brothers are two sets of twins.
Twin brothers Kimson and Kenson Dalzell, will both be suiting up with the Soufriere Hikers.
The other twin brothers, though, have found themselves apart. Sealroy Williams is with the Fort Charlotte Strikers, while his identical twin, Sealron, is in the Dark View Explorers’ line up.
Similarly, brothers Romel Currency and Sunil Ambris, are in the Botanic Garden Rangers and Salt Pond Breakers franchises, respectively.
All franchises have 13 players, inclusive of a marquee player.
Named as marquee players are Desron Maloney (Soufriere Hikers), Sunil Ambris (Salt Pond Breakers), Keron Cottoy (Fort Charlotte Strikers), Kesrick Williams (Botanic Garden Rangers), Obed Mc Coy (Grenadines Divers) and Lindon James (Dark View Explorers).
The T/10 format will see three matches being played each day; 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Powered by Drean 11, the VPL will be streamed live to a potential viewership of 80 million.
