Former West Indies under-19 Captains Steven Jacobs and Leon Johnson along with West Indies T20 all-rounder Christopher Barnwell will lead the teams as the Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) host two trial matches on Thursday September 5 and Friday September 6 at the GCC ground, Bourda.
These two 50-over games are trial matches and involve three teams and are in preparation for this year’s Eldorado Senior Inter-County 50-Over Round Robin Cricket Competition scheduled to commence on September 21.
Team One play Team Two on Thursday with the winner of that game facing Team Three the next day and players involved are requested to be at Bourda for 09:00hrs on Thursday and Friday.
Test batsmen Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan, both former West Indies Captains, are among the invitees.
However, the 33-year-old Sarwan, who scored 15 tons and averages 42.6 with five centuries from his 181 ODIs, is nursing a wrist injury which requires about four weeks rest and is not expected to participate in the trial matches.
Thirty-nine year-old Chanderpaul has 28 hundreds from a record 148 Tests with an average of 51.83 and only six other West Indians average above 50 in Test cricket. His 10,830 Test runs is only bettered by Brian Lara’s 11, 912 among West Indians.
The left-hander from Unity Village on the East Coast of Demerara has not played an ODI since March 2011
despite a solid average of 41.6 and 8,778 runs from 268 ODIs.
