Statistician Charwayne Walker continues his look at regional youth cricket, specifically Guyana’s performances. Today he looks at their performances and questions whether they could add another championship.
The last time Guyana won the Regional Under-19 Championship was 2007 when the tournament was held in Basseterre the St. Kitts Capital. On that occasion the National Team was led by Malteenoes All rounder Steven Jacobs. Now six years later the tournament returned to a familiar hunting ground where the land of many waters celebrated championship honours in 1993 and 2007. So the Million dollar Question being asked by Cricket fans is could Shawn Perreira’s men bring the Bacon home.
The first time Guyana won the Regional under-19 Championship was 1968 playing under the Captaincy of Queens Colleges’ Keith Aaron, St. Stanislaus College and GCC’s Timur Mohamed was at the helm when the land of the Majestic Kaieteur Falls won Championships # two and three in 1975, 1976.
Latchman Bhansingh was the man wearing the Captain’s arm band when Guyana won title # four 1985 playing on home soil, championships five, six and seven were achieved under the captaincy of Port Mourant’s Andre Percival (1992, 1993, 1994). Port Mourant’s Mahendra Nagamootoo was at the helm when the Land of Many Waters won championship # 8 (1995) in Grenada. Vishal Nagamootoo emulated Mahendra’s feat when he led Guyana to title # 9 this time the host was Jamaica 1996.
GCC’s Ramnaresh Sarwan was the man running things August, 1997 when Guyana won championship # 10 playing on home soil. Under Malteenoes Steven Jacobs’s leadership Guyana won championships 11th and 12th 2006, and 2007.
Only time will tell if Rose Hall Town Shawn Perreira will be added to the list above. History is on his side the last two occasions Guyana contested the under-19 Championship in St. Kitts 1993, 2007 they triumphantly departed Basseterre.
