first_imgRonsford Beaton played a key role in helping the Trinidad &Tobago Knight Riders (TKR) win the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League. He finished that tournament with 11 wickets in 10 matches, at an economy rate of 7.71.The West Indies selectors noticed his performances in the 2017 CPL and chose him for the West Indies One Day International series against New Zealand in December 2017.In that series, he was unfortunately reported for a suspect bowling action, and has not played any cricket since. Beaton may not play for TKR at any stage of the 2018 CPL, but he has been training with the team as he waits his bowling results.In a conference in Trinidad and Tobago, Beaton declared himself thankful to TKR for supporting him in his down time. He explained, “I must say hats off to the team, organisers, and the captain on the onus of having me back here. I’ve been out ofRonsford Beaton in the warm-ups with TKR at Providencecricket for a while, doing some remedial work on my action; but it is a good feeling to be back here with the team.”In the TKR versus Guyana Amazon Warriors match played at Providence on Sunday, September 9, Bravo said, “He (Beaton) is part of us, he is part of our family; we know he couldn’t play because his action needed remodeling, but now he has been cleared to bowl.”Bravo also said the owners of the Knight Riders have seen the talent and decided to invest in Beaton’s future, and all is owed to them for taking responsibility for the pacer.This will not be the first time the Knight Riders franchise has done something as such. It was almost the same for mystery spinner Sunil Narine when his action was deemed illegal.In his closing statements, Bravo said, “We want to see him play again for West Indies and TKR. He was a key player for us last time we won, and we’re looking forward for him next season.”last_img read more
