Super50: Performance Analyst added to Guyana Jaguars set-up
As the Guyana Jaguars prepare for battle in the CG Insurance Super50 Cup in a matter of the days, the management set-up has been boosted with the addition of Performance Analyst Dinesh Mahabir.
In a statement on Tuesday, Cricket Guyana Inc (CGI) said the move is geared to “enhance player performance and team success on a consistent and progressive basis.”
“This decision to employ Dinesh Mahabir for the CG Regional Super50 Cup was derived from CGI’s interest and importance on the player and team review process, which has significantly lent itself to an inherent value of a 360 degrees’ assessment and analysis,” CGI said.
The statement continued, “Such an approach has once again bore fruit, with CGI strategically providing an additional financial stimulus to the team in form of expertise, in an effort to give the Guyana Jaguars every chance of success from a management perspective. This decision allows the Guyana Jaguars to benefit from expertise that will assist the players to analyze and approach their game from a slightly different perspective.”
Mahabir was the Performance Analyst of the West Indies Under-19 team that won the ICC Youth World Cup in 2016.
“…and [he] has contributed significantly to player development since, with his latest intervention being the hosting of an Online Introductory Cricket Analytic exercise in the latter part of January 2021,” CGI added.
Mahabir is a Cricket Australia High Performance Coach. Mahabir’s birth for West Indies as a Performance Analyst began with his assignment to the West Indies Women team, which was later complemented by similar roles with West Indies A and developmental teams, inclusive of West Indies Emerging player team.
“The directors of CGI strongly believe that this investment will help to reaffirm the Guyana Jaguars as perhaps the strongest team in the region, an argument that can be strengthened with the lifting of the 2021 CWI CG Insurance Super 50 Cup title by the Guyana Jaguars,” CGI reasoned.
Guyana Jaguars will open their campaign against Barbados Pride on February 8.
