Taylor's form is crucial

The Cayman Islands plays in the International Cricket Council Division 5 tournament in Malaysia next month and from their level of intensity in training they have every reason to be confident of gaining promotion.  

One of the most in-form players in the squad captained by Ronald Ebanks will be Troy Taylor, a bowling all-rounder who has been clattering wickets impressively for his club By Rite, a team he was recently appointed captain of. 

Taylor, 29, was man of the match over the weekend as he lead By Rite to a five wicket victory, taking six wickets for only 21 runs.  

Theo Cuffy, technical director of Cayman cricket, said, “Troy has come a long way. He showed a lot of talent as a youngster but fell away for a couple of years. Now he has a more positive outlook and really stepped up in training.  

“I’m expecting good things from him in Malaysia. The Cayman squad has been working hard and I’m sure they will gain some good results in Malaysia.” 

Cayman will face the host country as well as Tanzania, Jersey, Guensey and Nigeria. Malaysia and Tanzania are the strongest sides having come down from Division 4. Jersey and Nigeria were promoted from Division 6.  

Cayman leave on Feb. 28 and matches commence from Mar. 6.
