Young Warriors having played unbeaten and handing Bermine their only defeat in the competition so far will start
with a psychological advantage when the two teams clash in the semi-final of the 2014 Carib Beer T20 First Division Cricket Competition for teams in Berbice tomorrow from 1:30hrs at the Port Mourant Ground.
Their batting will be spearheaded by the prolific Young West Indies and Senior National opener Shimron Hetmyer. Only last Saturday he tore apart the Rose Hall Town Gizmos and Gadgets bowling attack with a 33 ball 73. He will get support from his brother, Seon Hetmyer, a former national youth batsman and current Berbice player. They will be backed up by Waheid Edwards, former national under-15 all-rounder Kevin Ramdeen, former Berbice under-15 cricketer Ishwar Singh, former Guyana under-19 allrounder Linden Austin, former national T20 star Imran Khan and Vishal Mohabir.
In the bowling department, they boast four spinners who have done the damage in the competition so far in former Berbice cricketer Balram Samaroo, Ramdeen, Austin and Kassim Khan. The pace attack will be in the hands of Suresh Dhanai, Vishal Mohabir and Devendra Ramoutar.
Universal Solutions Bermine since their loss to Young Warriors in the first round have been on a roll with three consecutive victories, thanks mainly to their formidable bowling attack. The fiery pace attack will consist of Canada and former Guyana player Jeremy Gordon with support from Romario Shepherd and Niall Smith who represented Berbice and Guyana at the under-19 level respectively, this year. The off spin quartet will be Berbice cricketer Stephen Latcha, Devon Clements, former youth allrounder Joemal LaFleur and the underestimated Kevin Pellew.
From the last match against West Berbice, former Berbice players Anthony D’Andrade and Eugene LaFleur as well as Demerara batsman Shemroy Barrington are all ineligible to play. However, Essequibo opener Kevin Booie and former Demerara allrounder Damien Vantull will return to join former Guyana under-15 batsman Leon Williams, Clements, Shepherd and Joemal LaFleur to bolster the batting line up.
