By Avenash Ramzan
West Indies Under-19 players Tevin Imlach and Javier Spencer are the newcomers in the Guyana Jaguars squad for the 2018/2019 Professional Cricket League (PCL) Regional Four-day championship.
The duo was picked from the Pool at the Player Draft in Antigua on Wednesday morning. Imlach, a Guyanese, is a wicketkeeper/batsman, who was part of the West Indies Under-19 side that won the Youth World Cup in 2016.
18-year-old Spencer, a right-handed batsman and left-arm medium pacer, appeared in five List A games for West Indies Under-19s in the Super50 last year. Spencer and Jamaican off-spinner Ramaal Lewis are the overseas players in the squad.
Guyanese all-rounders Christopher Barnwell and Akshaya Persaud completed the quota of five players who were picked at the Draft on Wednesday.
The 10 players retained by the Guyana Jaguars from the last season are Veerasammy Permaul, Leon Johnson, Vishaul Singh, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Gudakesh Motie, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Keon Joseph, Anthony Bramble, Sherfane Rutherford and Romario Shepherd.
All-rounders Raymon Reifer and Keemo Paul, batsman Shimron Hetmyer and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, who are all now Centrally Contracted by Cricket West Indies, are available on Pay for Play, as is veteran batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
Guyana Jaguars are the defending champions of the PCL Regional Four-day championship, having won every title since the competition began in 2014/2015.
