The inaugural Player Draft was staged just before midday on Monday at Accra Beach Hotel here.
Sarwan, a former Guyana and West Indies captain, with the experience of 87 Tests, 181 One-day Internationals and 18 Twenty20 Internationals is one of only two players who have not been selected by their territorial sides.
“We felt having a player of the calibre of Sarwan in our side would be invaluable to our squad which includes a number of young players,” said Red Force Head Coach Gus Logie.
All-rounder Raymon Reifer is the other player selected by a franchise outside of his home territory. He will play for the Guyana franchise.
“We have struggled with the all-rounder role and we were glad to get a second player in the all-rounder position,” said Guyana Chairman of Selectors Rayon Griffith.
