Elated Kofi James Looking Forward To First CPL Stint Following Patriots Pick


by Neto Baptiste (Antigua Observer) Leeward Islands and Antigua and Barbuda all-rounder, Kofi James, is set to make his debut in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The Liberta Blackhawks player was selected by the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the 14th round of the recently held draft and will be the only Antiguan on the team’s roster.

James said he was confident of being drafted following good performances in a number of regional competitions.

“I thought I had a good year leading up to the CPL so I was anticipating a pick so I was eager and very excited to hear the news.

“I just expect to go and perform to the best of my ability, showcase my talent, get some exposure so the world knows who Kofi James is and just go and make the 11 because making the 11 will give me more opportunities than if I am on the bench, so I have to work hard to get into the 11,” he said.

James is joined in the CPL by fellow Antiguans Rahkeem Cornwall, who will play for the Barbados Royans, Alzarri Joseph, who will play for the St Lucia Kings, and Hayden Walsh Jr who will play for the Jamaica Tallawahs.
