By Zaheer Mohamed
National left hander Assad Fudadin told Kaieteur Sport that he is pleased with his performance during the recently concluded unofficial Test series between the West Indies and Sri Lanka A teams which ended in a draw.
Fudadin, who opened the batting and scored a century in the first game, said that he wanted to get a bigger score and was a bit disappointed when he got out since he was well set. “I am satisfied with my performance, I always try my best to score runs and put my name on the selectors list. I am looking forward to more opportunities be it with the A team or senior team and my aim is to help the region win more matches”, added Fudadin.
The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club left hander stated that the team performed excellently. “We played some really good cricket and the guys gave one hundred percent effort, everybody supported each other”, he said.
Fudadin thinks the future of West Indies Cricket is bright. “We have some very good players and I hope that they can continue to excel and put our cricket back on top. The most important thing is that each player does what is required of them and if everyone can do that and know their roles then we will be a force to reckon with once again in world cricket.”
The Berbician said that his fellow Guyanese Leon Johnson and Narsingh Deonarine batted well and left arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul performed good with the ball. “I would like to congratulate Johnson for getting a century; I hope he will go on from strength to strength. Deonarine was the most experienced batsman in the team and he was brilliant with the bat in the second game. Permaul did a fine job with the ball although he didn’t have the wickets to show,” he stated.
He informed that he is disappointed at not being selected on any of the Franchise teams in the Caribbean Premier League. “I had few opportunities to showcase my skills in the Twenty\20 format, but nevertheless was hoping to participate in the CPL. I had some good knocks in this format locally and one of my goals is to be more successful in the shorter version of the game,” he stated.
Fudadin said that he is currently engaged in some fitness training and net sessions so that he can be prepared for future tours.
