A three-man team from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) arrived in Guyana on Monday to conduct a two-day ‘Genetic Syllabus’ programme for Guyana’s three selected players for next year’s Women’s
tri Nation series in South Africa.
The series involves host nation South Africa, Australia and West Indies and the Guyanese in the Squad are batter Shemaine Campbelle, who despite her 23 years, can now be considered a veteran at the International level, with a highest score of 105 from her 61 ODI’s since making her debut in 2009 against South Africa. She has also played 69 T20s for the West Indies Women.
The other two Guyanese in the Squad are fast bowlers 30 year-old Tremayne Smartt who has played 51 ODI’s and 53 T20s and Sabrina Munroe, who is also 30.
Munroe has played 23 ODIs and 21 T20s since making her ODI debut against the Netherlands in 2010.
The three man team comprised former West Indies pacer 46-year-old Vasbert Drakes, who played 12 Tests and 34 ODIs, his Barbadian countryman 57-year-old Ezra Mosley who played two Tests and nine ODIs for the West Indies and Cuban Physical instructor Hector Charles.
Drakes said that three ODIs and three t20s will be played in South Africa and their reason for coming here was to access the three players selected for the West Indies Women.
“We have been making a lot of progress but we need public and financial support. The Women have been doing well and making us proud at a time when the men are struggling badly,” said Drakes from the Bourda ground yesterday.
“The girls are really doing well and they need to be rewarded for their success but the main challenge is to have more consistent programmes to be successful,” added Drakes.
The former West Indies player informed that the three man team visited Jamaica and Trinidad before coming here. They are scheduled to leave today for Barbados where they will conduct a similar programme. (Sean Devers)
