The St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots have made two additions to their squad for the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League which kicked off on 8th August in Guyana.
The newest members of the Patriots family, joining to aid in this season’s championship push are Rassie Van Der Dussen and Hayden Walsh Jr.
The Patriots will be joined by Rassie Van Der Dussen for the second half of the season as Sandeep Lamicchane is leaving for national duty with Nepal on 26th August.
As Graeme Cremer was made unavailable due to injury, he has been replaced by Antiguan cricketer, Hayden Walsh Jr.
Speaking about the new additions to the squad Patriots head coach Donovan Miller said: “it is always sad to lose players that we drafted but in Hayden Walsh Jr. and Rassie Van Der Dussen we have two players that we are very confident will succeed at this year’s Hero CPL as we look to go one game better than last year and win the tournament in 2018.”
The tournament will run until 16th September and will feature matches played in St. Kitts, Trinidad, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia and the USA. The Patriots home games are slated from August 28th – September 4th.
