The national under-15 cricket squad, which is expected to depart Guyana on July 8 for this year’s Regional Under-15 tournament in Jamaica from July 10-26, will
be encamped at the Essequibo Cricket Board hostel in Anna Regina from Saturday.
The squad which will be managed by Virendra Chintamani and coached by former national under-15 left-handed batsman Julian Moore will spend six days at the ECB hostel before returning to the city.
The team was selected after the GCB/Limacol Under-15 tournament that was won by Demerara that played unbeaten throughout.
Bhaskar Yadram was elected as the captain and Ronaldo Mohammed, his deputy, as Guyana hunt their third title at this level. Guyana’s second place finish in 2001 was its best showing since then. The Guyanese ended in the cellar position last year.
The Guyana Under-15 team reads: Bhaskar Yadram (Captain), Adrian Sukhwah (wicketkeeper), Raymond Perez, Darshan Persaud, Richie Lucknauth, Ronaldo Mohamed (vice-captain), Timothy McAlmont, Mark Williams, Sagar Hetheramani, Ashmead Nedd, Matthew Hardial, Vickram Talmakund, Christopher Latchman and Sylus Tyndall.
The six standby players are: Joel Seetaram, Jaddel McAlister, Kelvin Shewprasad, Andrew Clifford, Steve Deonarine and Joshua Harrichand. (Rajiv Bisnauth)
