Following their one run victory over Leeward Islands, Guyana will look to chalk up another win when they take on leaders Trinidad and Tobago at the Queen’s Park Oval today.
Guyana were coasting nicely along with Sachin Singh and Junior Sinclair looking positive at the Brian Lara Stadium until the rain intervened. Singh, who will lead the region’s U-16 team to England later this year, will look to continue from where he left off, while fellow opener Alex Algoo is yet to do his talent justice on tour. Sinclair did get in and played some decent shots against the Leeward Islands, while Kevlon Anderson is one of the most complete players in the tournament.
Anderson and team mate Kevin Umroa are the only bowlers with five-wicket hauls in competition so far and a lot will depend on them to restrict Trinidad and Tobago.
Defending 139 against the leeward Islands (DLS method), Guyana’s bowlers did sent down 16 wides with pacer Gevon Schultz starting with five before his first legal delivery, but he came back to pick up two crucial wickets and set the stage for Umora and Anderson to bowl Guyana home.
This is an area in which they must improve since extras can have a huge impact on the result. Another concern for Coach Orin Bailey is the fielding; Guyana did put down a number of catches in both their games, and they are aware that they cannot let the home team off the hook. Early chances must be taken if they are to remain in the title hunt.
The Queen’s Park pitch is expected to offer assistance to both batmen and bowlers who work hard and this matchup is touted as the game of the tournament.
Guyana can be unpredictable, while the hosts won both of their games so far. The weather here has not been that good with the Windward Islands and Barbados game being called off, while the Duckworth Lewis Stern method had to be used in the other two matches.
Guyana Squad – Ashmead Nedd (Capt. Sachin Singh, Alex Algoo , Kevlon Anderson, Junior Sinclair, Pradesh Balkishuin, Reaz Khan, Alphius Bookie, Lance Roberts, Kevin Umora, Orlando Jailall, Kevin Christian, Qumar Torrington, Gevon Schultz. Orin Bailey Coach (Coach), Nazeer Mohamed (Manager).
