Guyanese cricketers stuck in T&T eager to return home
Several Guyanese cricketers are stuck in Trinidad and Tobago for almost two months now, as the cricket season there has been suspended owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
The cricketers were all plying their trade in the Trinidad and Tobago Board’s National League, which had to be put on hold as part of measures to tackle the spread of the disease on the twin-island republic.
Among the players are Test batsman Rajendra Chandrika, Demetri Cameron, Steve Ramdass, Kandasammy Surujnarine, Paul Wintz, Garfield Benjamin, Samuel Kishnasammy and Dion Ferrier.
While the cricketers said they are well taken care of by their respective clubs, they are eager to get back home and reunite with their families.
They are however, concerned that such a desire might not be fulfilled anytime soon as the lockdown to the two nations main ports of entry is set to be extended. In the meantime, they are taking precautions to ensure they stay safe from the coronavirus.
