Deputy Mayor congratulates Imlach on West Indies President’s XI selection
Deputy Mayor of Georgetown, Alfred Mentore, has expressed delight at the selection of Guyanese wicketkeeper-batsman Tevin Imlach to the Cricket West Indies President’s XI to face Bangladesh in a three-day warm-up fixture from June 10-12 in Antigua.
Imlach was one the standout performers for the Guyana Harpy Eagles this season, making 215 runs at 53.75 with three consecutive half-centuries. Imlach and Tagenarine Chanderpaul were selected for the President’s XI match, while Gudakesh Motie got a maiden call-up to the Test squad.
See below the full statement from Alfred Mentore.
“Please allow me the opportunity to congratulate young Tevin Imlach on his consistent performance in national cricket and his recent selection to the West Indies President’s XI team.
Imlach made a tremendous contribution to the performance of the Guyana senior team this year by registering three consecutive half-centuries (53, 79, and 76) and earned his selection to the WI President’s XI team to play against the touring Bangladesh side.
As a former President of the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC), the club where Imlach honed his skills from a tender age, I had the honour of working with him and seeing him progress through various stages of the game.
The wicket-keeper/batsman represented DCC at the First and Second Division levels and was part of the West Indies’ successful ICC Under-19 World Cup final against India in 2016.
He also represented Guyana at the First-Cass level and played List A matches for the West Indies B Team in 2018. He has been a feature amongst the runs recently for the Guyana team.
Editor, please also allow me the opportunity to congratulate left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie on his maiden Test selection, and batsman Tagenarine Chanderpaul on his selection to the reserve list.
I personally congratulate these youngsters and wish to see greater success as they represent their team and country, and etch their names in the history of this glorious sport called cricket.”
