Four-Day: Demetri Cameron gets maiden call-up; return for Beaton
- Hetmyer, Joseph and Pestano out
Berbice fast-bowler Demetri Cameron has earned a maiden call-up to the Guyana Harpy Eagles squad for the final three rounds of the Regional Four-Day Championship in Trinidad and Tobago.
According to a release from the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) on Friday, Ronsford Beaton, who has rectified the issues with his bowling action, has earned a recall along with all-rounder Kevin Sinclair.
The 29-year-old Beaton would have last played a First-Class match in March 2016, while Sinclair played in March 2020.
Meanwhile, Keon Joseph and Clinton Pestano were dropped from the squad which competed in the first two rounds.
Likewise, Shimron Hetmyer, who is currently engaged in the Indian Premier League was omitted as the IPL concludes on May 29, and the Regional Four-Day resumes on May 18.
Additionally, West Indies have white-ball tours to the Netherlands from May 31 then Pakistan from June 8, and Hetmyer could potentially be part of both tours.
Harpy Eagles will play Barbados Pride from May 18-21 at the Queen’s Park Oval; Jamaica Scorpions from May 25-28, 2022, at Deigo Martin and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force from June 1-4, 2022, at the Oval.
Harpy Eagles currently have 21.4 points to be placed fourth on the standings. An unbeaten Pride team heads the standings with 42.0 points.
The squad will play its final practice match from May 9-12 at the National Stadium, Providence.
The Guyana Harpy Eagles squad reads Leon Johnson (Captain), Keemo Paul (Vice-Captain), Chandrapaul Hemraj, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Tevin Imlach, Vishaul Singh, Akshaya Persaud, Anthony Bramble, Veerasammy Permaul, Gudakesh Motie, Nial Smith, Demetri Cameron, Antony Adams, Kevin Sinclair and Ronsford Beaton.
