Super50: Permaul and Reifer to join Guyana Jaguars for semi-finals
By Akeem Greene
West Indies players Veerasammy Permaul and Raymon Reifer will join the Guyana Jaguars squad in the ongoing CG Insurance Super50 Cup in Antigua. However, due to mandatory quarantine, they will only be available for the semi-finals, scheduled for February 24 and 25.
Multiple sources within Cricket Guyana Inc. confirmed that once the duo clears the various COVID-19 protocols they will be available for selection.
The unbeaten Jaguars have virtually one foot in the semi-finals, having won all three of their matches thus far, with two remaining games to play in the round-robin stage.
On Saturday, they will face the other unbeaten side, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, while on Monday they play Windward Volcanoes.
Cricket West Indies Chief Executive Officer, Johnny Grave, had revealed that all the players from the successful Test series in Bangladesh would arrive in Antigua by Wednesday (February 17).
Reifer played all three matches on the ODI leg of the tour to Bangladesh, but neither he nor Permaul featured in either of the two Tests.
Majority of the West Indies players and management are in Antigua undergoing quarantine as West Indies prepare to face Sri Lanka in an all-format series from March 3.
Other teams have already made changes to their squad as Kyle and Shai Hope, have joined Barbados Pride as injury replacements, likewise, Kofi James for Nino Henry of the Leeward Islands Hurricanes.
