For most Guyanese cricketers, it is difficult to represent Guyana at the senior level without national youth representation.

In the case of this lad, he only played for Berbice Under-19s, and through hard work and determination, he has found a way into the national senior team.

This is the story of the 25-year-old Demetri Cameron, the construction worker who made it to the Guyana senior team.

“Words cannot explain the feeling right now. I have been trying for so long now and I finally got the breakthrough to be in the Guyana Harpy Eagles team. It is a wonderful feeling. It has been years now I have been trying; hard work finally pays off,” Cameron said.

The right-arm Berbician fast bowler, who has an action that mirrors that of South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada, started his journey at the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club. But before that, he started playing cricket at age five.

He says, “My first real cricket match was at age 10, I played in an Under-13 match against Canje.” Like Nial Smith and other Guyanese cricketers, Cameron went on to develop his skills in Trinidad and Tobago, playing club cricket.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
