During the selecting process, we have made sure to keep an eye on the current season of the Carribean Premier League (CPL), specifically on the players who have been putting up impressive numbers. At the outset of my tenure, I said that I would be interested in giving players the chance, and I believe that I have been consistent in providing them with those opportunities. I think we have picked a very solid squad, and it is a team that will contend, considering that we have to qualify from Round 1 into the Super12s,” said Haynes.
