Malteenoes’ all-rounder Kellon Carmichael is back home from another successful season in the English Leagues and he wants to make an impact in the GCB Jaguars 50-over Franchise League for the Leon Johnson led City team which began their title Defense with a win in Monday’s opening round.
”It is a bit difficult returning to the hot conditions as I would have gotten acclimatised to the cold conditions. The first two weeks is usually a bit challenging but then it’s back to normal” Carmichael explained.
”I think it’s a good initiative because it targets a wider pool of players” Carmichael said about the Jaguars’ 50-over League.
Carmichael played in the 2007 three-day championship winning Guyana U-19 team, Captained by his Malteenoes teammate Steven Jacobs. Guyana reached the 50-overs final at Warner Park which they lost to Jamaica and Carmichael came very close to making the West Indies U-19 team that year.
He played for Demerara at the senior Inter-County level from 2008 until it was disbanded a couple of years ago while he first played in England in 2014 and has been playing there every season except 2016 when missed the season to stay in Guyana.
