Uncapped Kevlon Anderson gets nod for Guyana Harpy Eagles
- Paul, Antony Adams included for third round
West Indies all-rounder Keemo Paul, left-arm spinner Antony Adams, and the uncapped Kevlon Anderson are the players joining the Guyana Harpy Eagles squad for the third round of the West Indies Four-Day Championship.
They replace Chandrapaul Hemraj, Akshaya Persaud, and Ashmead Nedd for the trip to the twin island republic where they play Trinidad and Tobago Red Force from March 15.
Hemraj is an enforced change as he has not recovered from his concussion in the second round and could be out for the rest of this championship for medical reasons.
Speaking at a press conference on Saturday, Chairman of the Senior Selection Panel, Ramanresh Sarwan, commented that Anderson is “one they want to invest in” and highlighted “he is one we have to keep grounded and allow him the opportunity to play so he can improve.”
The young right-hander recently scored a sublime century for Berbice in the ongoing Senior Inter-County Four-Day tournament.
Head Coach Ryan Hercules, Captain Leon Johnson, and Territorial Development Officer, Colin Stuart, were also present at the National Stadium, Providence.
Furthermore, Johnson announced that at the end of this Four-Day season, he will retire from National duties.
Harpy Eagles (28.6 points) lead the standings ahead of defending champions, Barbados Pride (23 points), Trinidad and Tobago Red Force (20.6 points), Windward Volcanoes (19.4 points), Leeward Hurricanes (17.4 points) and Jamaica Scorpions (10 points).
Guyana Harpy Eagles squad: Kevlon Anderson, Matthew Nandu, Tevin Imlach, Leon Johnson (Captain), Kemol Savory, Anthony Bramble, Kevin Sinclair, Keemo Paul, Veerasammy Permaul (Vice-captain), Shamar Joseph, Nial Smith, Ronsford Beaton, Antony Adams
