The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) extends congratulations to Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shemaine Campbelle on their successful achievements against Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka respectively.
Sarwan, who was absent from West Indies cricket for 18 months and had a low scoring series in Australia last month, scored a much needed century against Zimbabwe in the second One Day International (ODI) on Sunday.
After being pushed down the order in Australia and in the first ODI against Zimbabwe, he was given the opportunity to open the batting and, and he capitalized.
The flamboyant right hander crafted his century by batting through the innings, facing 143 deliveries. He finished on 120* which is his highest ODI score, with nine boundaries and two sixes.
On the other hand West Indies Women’s team all-rounder, Shemaine Campbelle, was adjudged the player-of-the-series against Sri Lanka which the Caribbean side won 2-1. The 20-year-old Guyanese is a right handed batter and a leg spin bowler.
She accounted for four wickets in the series and totaled 143 runs, 105 came in the second ODI which was in a losing cause.
Her fighting 37 in the third ODI saw West Indies clinching the series.
The GCB believes that Sarwan is still arguably one of the most fluent and attractive batsmen in the world, and is delighted that he found some form and is optimistic he will improve quickly and reach the top of his game again.
The Board is also pleased with Campbelle’s improvement in her batting. She has become a responsible and crucial player in the team and wishes her continued success.
