2016 WICB Professional Cricket League Player Draft


Media Lounge, 1st Floor Coppin/Cozier/Short Media Centre, Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados


Friday, June 17, 10 a.m.


The Player Draft has been organised with the goal of achieving an equitable distribution of the available player talent in the Regional 4-Day and NAGICO Super50 tournaments.

Each Franchise will contract a minimum of 15 players, as follows:

● 10 players pre-selected from the Home Territory and 5 players drafted from the Player Pool

● The Franchise will pre-select 10 players, each of whom: (i) is from the Home Territory or (ii) was party to a Professional Contract with the Franchise for the season immediately preceding the season to which the draft relates

● Of the 15 players contracted to the Franchise, a minimum of two (2) must be from outside the Home Territory; and

● Each franchise can have 1 international player (i.e. non-eligible West Indian player) at its own cost

The six franchises shall participate in the Player Draft through the Chairman of Selectors or Head Coach.

The Player Draft shall be conducted over 5 rounds. Each franchise must pick a player in each round and will have 2 minutes to select the player. Where a selection is not made within the stipulated time, the offending franchise will miss their turn and must wait until all other franchises have made their selection in that round before making its selection.

The selection order for the Player Draft is linked to the final league position and performance of the franchise in the 2015-16 WICB Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day Tournament. The sequence below shall be repeated each round.
