The sky is the limit for West Indies Emerging Player, Berbician Kevin Sinclair an off-spinning all-rounder whose ultimate aim like so many other talented players, is to become a permanent member of the West Indies Senior team.
Soon to celebrate his 21st birthday on November 23rd next, Sinclair made his T20 debut in the just concluded CPL Championship as a member of the Guyana Amazon Warriors team against the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at Port of Spain, Aug 30.
And while his debut season in this exciting format of the game was not as hot, the talent he possess certainly puts him in good stead to become one of the stars across the various formats of the game.
Sinclair, who started playing the game at the age of 7 years-old and is a member of the award winning Rose Hall Town Youth And Sports Club (RHTY&SC) of Berbice, has already tasted some degree of championship success at the regional level having been a member of the West Indies Emerging Players team that won the 2019 Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup.
A true sportsman, Sinclair who is one of the contracted players by the Guyana Cricket Board disclosed that he also loves the sport of football especially when the world cup comes around. His inspiration in the sport he has become a popular player in, cricket, is off-spinner Shane Shillingford who he subsequently played against in the Super50 competition.
Also a member of the Guyana Jaguars four-day team, Sinclair informed that he started playing the game at Police Sports Club, Angoy’s Avenue in Berbice. His grandfather, Carlton Sinclair, also a former player played an integral role in shaping him into the player he has become.
Considering himself a positive role model to the many young players not only in Berbice but in Guyana as a whole, Sinclair said he is a stickler for being disciplined, training hard, a determined individual and learning from his mistakes.
He is encouraging young players to also follow this pattern which will surely cement their success not only in cricket but the sport if their choice. Sinclair has also become known for his ability to do the acrobatic somersault flick after taking a wicket. He has performed such feats in the just concluded CPL as well as the Super50.
