Baugh in hot water with cricket bosses

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

KINGSTON—Sidelined West Indies wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh Jnr is in hot water with cricket authorities in Jamaica after missing a national training session without receiving permission. The Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) has confirmed that Baugh is to attend a disciplinary hearing sometime this week before a possible return to the national setup to continue training in preparation for the new season starting in January. 

Baugh missed a training session on December 20 to attend to personal business after his request for a day off from practice was refused, the Jamaica Observer has reported. “He [Baugh] is not a part of the training squad now, but it doesn’t mean he is no longer a part of the team,” said newly-elected JCA president Wilford Heaven. “That matter is to be dealt with and there is a process to be followed.” Baugh’s absence from training as part of a 45 member squad has prompted speculation about his future in the 14-man squad to be chosen for the upcoming Regional Super50 tournament.
