NIC POTHAS has already had selection headaches and there are more just around the corner after Guernsey announced their provisional squad for the European T20 Championship yesterday.

The new director of island cricket spoke of his ‘immense pride’ as the initial 19-man group was named for the tournament in Sussex next month, which will see the finalists progress to the ICC Global World T20 Qualifier in the UAE later in the year.

The first official squad of the new regime has a very youthful look to it, although there are plenty of players with international experience following Guernsey’s recent World Cricket League successes.

‘It is a fantastic blend of youth and experience,’ said Pothas, who added that the shorter format of the game compared to the WCL matches was also taken into account.
