Four of Guyana’s most promising youth cricketers have been shortlisted to participate
in a West Indies under–19 training camp in Antigua from December 10 – 20, 2018
following their strong showing in this year’s regional under–19 tournament.
The quartet comprises Ashmead Nedd, Kevin Umroa, Sachin Singh and Kevlon Anderson
who are scheduled to depart Guyana in just under a week to join their other Caribbean counterparts.
Sachin , the youngest member in the bunch, has previously played for the West Indies at the under–16 level
which he led to England last year.
He is a compact left-handed opening batsman, who quietly goes about his business.
He scored 201 runs for Guyana in 2018.
Umroa, another consistent left-arm spinner, snared 21 wickets this year to earn his maiden West Indies call-up.
The Albion Cricket Club spinner is one of his club’s exciting emerging prospects
who would be hoping to make the 2020 World Cup
in a bid to carry on his Club’s rich history of producing quality spinners.
Nedd, who participated in this year’s ICC under–19 World Cup in New Zealand
is a seasoned campaigner whose left-arm spin, bagged 20 wickets in this year’s regional under–19 tournament.
He is the lone Guyanese among the quartet with previous WI under–19 experience
and is highly tipped to lead the Caribbean side at the 13th edition of the tournament.
Anderson represents the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTYC) in local competitions.
He has earned his tag of being one of Guyana’s most gifted youth middle order batsmen
and who could even feature in this year’s regional four-day championship
having scored the runs locally to justify a call-up which would undoubtedly boost his resume
and his prospects of going to South Africa.
