Is Perez from Venezuela?

To manage Hemraj you have to go to the source of the roti cooking and tell them to stop clapping the roti when he’s around.

Perez around a while now... Couple years ago he made the WI U19 world Cup squad as an opener and ended up missing it due to injury. Joshua Persaud missed the same WC too due to off-field issues.

Sachin Singh is another one... Was at all of the WI U19 training camps... Felt that he arrived and his fitness and performance went downhill after that...

Word is that lunch is yet to arrive for the players that's the reason for the delay... Used to be a regular thing back when I played but now they got live coverage so the public could see lol

i have not yet given up on Akshaya...he has talent but he gotta watch that weight

tell uncle Seeram to ease off

Chrissy 2023-03-19 18:36:13 

In reply to doosra
Approaching 50. Demerara is scoring faster than West Indies


doosra 2023-03-19 18:46:41 

In reply to Chrissy

i think Bazball will catch on more and more given the already existing lickit tendencies

good for the game overall but there will be times when you have to dig in

Chrissy 2023-03-19 18:50:10 

In reply to doosra
50 fi Akshaya - bat on

Chrissy 2023-03-19 18:53:51

Essequibo 's catching and fielding is atrocious

Chrissy 2023-03-19 21:10:16 

Another 100 partnership

Raskil 2023-03-19 21:11:22 

I like the hunger for spending time at the crease

The senior guys like Barnwell and Hemraj lack the patience

Chrissy 2023-03-19 21:11:22 

Ali Mohammed gawn for 62

141 balls

In reply to doosra

Good ton by Akahaya... But what's up with the celebration? Man pelt away his helmet.. Then pointing to his bat to show that it's doing the talking lol

When his uncle was giving him a free ride in the team and his average couldn't get pass 7 his bat shoulda do de talking... It's not too late though he got the potential big grin

Chrissy 2023-03-19 21:25:48 

In reply to anthonyp
A little excessive is a kind description but at least he converted his 50

Raskil 2023-03-19 21:26:41 

In reply to anthonyp

Like the bat now got mouth lol

He’s 25
He better stay focused and humble

anthonyp 2023-03-19 21:35:15 

In reply to Chrissy

Yes. Perez should have made an easy ton too.

anthonyp 2023-03-19 21:38:12 

In reply to Raskil

It's about time... GCB investing a lot on him. Akshaya enjoying a free PCL contract for the past three years and getting around USD 1500-2000 per month. Guys like Savory don't have that luxury.

Raskil 2023-03-19 21:38:27 


Adams had to go on lunch strike
26 overs 4 wickets

it's about time he repay some of that investment

he on a B contract?

Savory def getting his this year

Raskil 2023-03-19 23:08:54 

In reply to anthonyp

That’s why Sarwan’s decisions are very important.

Windies2017 2023-03-20 02:51:38 

In reply to anthonyp

Akshaya only deserved his spot when he first made the team back in 2017 or so. Back then, the guy was scoring a lot of runs locally but since then he has been a huge disappointment compounded by that one Super 50 match where he made 29 off 60 or so balls killing the innings.

Windies2017 2023-03-20 02:55:26 

In reply to doosra

Them guys locally musse really fed up of him by now. I remember one of them guys from CI in 2018 saying he wasn't all that lol

doosra 2023-03-20 02:59:49 

In reply to Windies2017

he is talented no doubt in my eyes but he was just getting a free pass...he has to earn it now

Bourda was dah ground fah many years before Providence tek over. Many of dah world's great mek ton deh,,, The famous Greg Chappell mek a retiring ton deh as well. Sah they young-man earned him right to celebrate.

anthonyp 2023-03-20 17:33:16 

In reply to doosra

Its either a B or C contract he is on... Dem fellas seh he is collecting around 280k GYD per month. Guys like Junior, Anderson, Nandu and Savory without.

Under Sanasie they used to get a lil academy contract (around 70k)... but the new GCB cut that out. Players without contracts got to find their own way to survive and attend training.

anthonyp 2023-03-20 17:36:07 

In reply to WIfan26

Against an attack that didn't include Beaton, Keemo and Anthony Adams big grin

It's his highest score at this level... Doubt he got more than three tons at the first division level lol

doosra 2023-03-20 17:38:15 

In reply to anthonyp

that is insane...i hope Anderson, Jr, Nandu and Joseph get in some level...of course Savory

anthonyp 2023-03-20 18:46:15 

In reply to doosra

Motie and Tage will most likely get CWI contracts... So hopefully Nandu, Savory and Shamar fall in.

Sanasie had his ways, but that academy setup was good for Guyana cricket... He used the savings from the PCL contracts to pay the academy players... Every day they used to turn up and train with the coaches.

These days players who aren't contracted gotta train on their own... or they could turn up whenever the national team is training, of course they gotta stand their own expense...

doosra 2023-03-20 18:54:25 

In reply to anthonyp

damn we could actually find positives for Sanasie compared to now...

hopefully they go back to that...that academy training is partly the reason we have the youngsters coming thru i think but you know more than me on this

i know you always used to say how demman training day and night

Motie and Tage will most likely get CWI contracts... So hopefully Nandu, Savory and Shamar fall in.

that would be good because more to spend on locals...Hety nah tek money either?
