Kaieteur News – After just two seasons of List ‘A’ cricket in which he was the most economical bowler on both on both occasions, 21-year-old Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, Berbice and Guyana off-spinner Kevin Sinclair’s dream of playing for the West Indies came true when he was picked for next month’s Sri Lanka tour to the West Indies.
The entire tour, which comprises of three T20s, three ODIs and two Tests, will be played in Antigua and begins with the first T20 on March 3 and is scheduled to conclude on April 2 when the second Test is set to end.
Sinclair, who turned 21 last November, explained how he knew of his West Indies selection
“I received a call from the Chairman; I was shocked at the time and calm at the same time too. I was focusing on my job in the Super50 and helping Guyana get to the final. But I feel good to be selected…it’s a dream come true for me,” said Sinclair, who played the first of his six First-Class matches for Guyana on January 16 against Barbados. Sinclair has scored 130 runs and taken 12 wickets at First-Class level.
“My plans against Sri Lanka is to contribute to the West Indies team with both bat and ball if given the opportunity, and to perform well and be consistent,” Sinclair who has 18 wickets from 16 List ‘A’ matches noted.
“I had the feeling that once I came out in this Super50 and did well I had a chance of being selected for the West Indies,” said Sinclair who was named in the Guyana Amazon Warriors Squad for 2020 CPL and played matches taking five wickets.
When asked what he did differently in this Super50, the youngster who grew up in Guyana’s oldest town (New Amsterdam) but plays for the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports, said he did not make too many changes to his game.
“I just added a few varieties to my game in terms of my tactics. I am looking to learn as much as I can and walk away with a bag of information and knowledge from the senior guys like Gayle, Pollard and guys like that,” explained Sinclair who done his batting little justice at the Regional level, his highest score is 44.
An off-spinning all-rounder, Sinclair also competed in the US Open in Florida last December and thanked all those who supported him in his career.
