Albion wishes Motie “long and outstanding career as an international cricketer”
Congratulatory message from Albion Community Centre Cricket Club to Guyana’s latest international cricketer, Gudakesh Motie
The President, Executives and Members of the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club would like to extend congratulations to Gudakesh Motie on making his international debut for the West Indies.
Motie became the sixth Albion cricketer to represent the West Indies at the international level when the West Indies played Pakistan in the third T20 International on Thursday (December 16, 2021) in Pakistan.
“We are very excited as a Club and are proud of young Motie’s elevation to the status of being an international cricketer and we would like to congratulate him on this achievement. We all know how talented he is and that it was just a matter of time for him to represent the West Indies Senior Team. Without any doubt, we are very confident that he will have a long and outstanding career as an international cricketer,” said Vemen Walter, the President of the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club.
Motie has now joined Seu Shiwnaraine, Narsingh Deonarine, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Devendra Bishoo and Veerasammy Permaul as being Albion cricketers who have represented the West Indies at the international level.
Overall, nine cricketers from Albion have played at the international level with Fazil Sattaur, Abdool Samad and Sunil Dhaniram having represented Canada.
Motie’s achievement is another demonstration of the outstanding work the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club has been doing.
It will also serve as a tremendous motivator not only to our cricketers, but all members inclusive of our executives who are known to work beyond the call of duty.
Only a few weeks ago, Motie’s Albion Club mate and fellow left-arm-spinner Veerasammy Permaul made an impressive return to international cricket, capturing eight wickets (5-35 and 3-106) for West Indies in the last Test match against Sri Lanka.
