Sankar (6-52) and Perez (76*) impress after Anderson hits 122


Kevlon Anderson stuck the lone century in the rain-affected Guyana Harpy Eagles Four-Day practice match that ended Saturday at the Meten-Meer-Zorg Sports Club.

Also sending a signal to the selectors were leg-spinner Steven Sankar, who grabbed 6-52, and former West Indies Under-19 batsman Raymond Perez, who made an unbeaten 76*.

Anderson struck 122 for Antony Adams XI, who lost to Matthew Nandu’s XI by six wickets as players looked to get much-needed match-time ahead of the Regional Four-Day season that starts February 7.

Akshaya Persaud (28), Rivaldo Phillips (27), and Rampertab Ramnauth (20) offered some support to Anderson as their side was bowled out for 232.

Sankar continued his bowling form, snapping up impressive figures of 6-52, while speedster Nial Smith returned 2-52.

The leg-spinner ended with match figures of 9-71 from 14.1 overs in a bid for a maiden First-Class call-up.

Perez, who made 41 in the first innings, struck an unbeaten 76 to lead Nandu’s XI to a successful chase of 143.

Shamar Yearwood (19) was the next best scorer, as Adams led his team’s bowling with returns of 2-13.

According to the Guyana Cricket Board, a third match is scheduled for January 23.

The weather will determine the venue after the first match was rained entirely out at the Georgetown Cricket Club, Bourda.

The GCB should submit the Harpy Eagles’ 13-man squad by January 26.

Some current players on the ongoing Test tour to Australia are expected to return to the mix for the first match against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in St. Kitts and Nevis.
