The University of the West Indies (UWI) has begun the search for fast bowlers in the Caribbean this month.
Young cricket talent across the region will have the opportunity to participate in a unique developmental program to improve their bowling skills.
The initiative called “Pace Like Fire” is being led by the UWI Faculty of Sport and it seeks to identify young players across the region with raw pace bowling talent.
The first instalment of the program runs from Aug. 8 to Sept. 5, in six Caribbean countries targeting young 16 to 22-year-old male and female fast bowlers.
The first program will take place from Aug. 8-12 at the National Cricket Center in Central Trinidad at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy and Shaw Park in Tobago.
Pace Like Fire 2018 will identify 15 genuine fast bowlers — 10 males and five females — who will be placed into a two-year comprehensive development program.
According to a release from the UWI, Jamaica, “this cohort of bowlers will be exposed to the most up-to-date scientific testing and analysts, expert coaching, modern technical training and equipment, mental skills training, strength and conditioning, nutritional support as well as personal development workshops.”
