National and former Leeward Islands cricketer, Hayden Walsh Jr, is pleased with the progress he has made during his near three-year stint in Barbados.
Walsh, who was contracted by the Barbados Pride back in June of 2015, said the work-rate is much higher than with both the Leewards and here in Antigua.
“It’s all about hard work and the system that is in place in Barbados favours a lot of hard work so I enjoy that and that’s why I haven’t found it hard per se. I am looking to making this my step before I get to the West Indies so maybe a good two or three years,” he said. 
The bowling all-rounder, who also plays for the Liberta Blackhawks on the local front, said one significant difference is the quantity of cricket played in Barbados.
“A lot more cricket is being played down here [Barbados] while in Antigua it would just be the local season and then you’d have the Leeward Islands tournament which all ends between May and July but in Barbados the T20 is starting this weekend and it goes right down until November,” he said.
Despite his improvement however, Walsh said he still has some way to go before he is totally satisfied.
“For me, I am looking at what I produced when I got the opportunity and I think that what I have produced is pretty decent but I think I can improve on it but in terms of [getting] a fair share, I don’t really have that say,” the player said.
Walsh has played 21 First Class matches, claiming 47 wickets with best figures of 6 for 47. He has scored a total of 391 runs with a highest of 89.
