In reply the Scorpions were out of venom as they succumbed for 167. Only debutant Oraine Williams (56) and Assad Fudadin 35 not out, showed any semblance of a fight.

Gajanand Singh Has A Passion For American Cricket

Gajanand Singh Announces His Desire to Play for TEAM USA!

Gajanand Singh lifts trophies following two league victories New Jersey

With the Caribbean Premier League (2018) done an dusted, VelloCricket caught up with Gajanand Singh. Singh was one of the breakout picks of CPL 2017 on the back of his UWI T20 performances in 2017. This CPL was not the same for Singh as he was left to stand aside watching all tournament with five internationals and the exploits of Shimron Hetmyer and Sherfane Rutherford carrying the Amazon Warriors to the finals. Singh lamented, “the fact that CPL changed the allowance of international players from four to five was one the key factors that restricted local West Indian talent this season.” Singh he could have made more of a contribution than the likes of Chadwick Walton, who batted much of the tournament out of position in the middle order, which was more suited to Singh. Singh always brimming with confidence, looks back on his opportunities in 2017 when his made his chances count and even more so with the Warriors many a times under pressure.

Singh has had his sights set on Team USA. Singh is eyeing Super 50 as another opportunities and he believes that he can be a cog in USA’s push for promotion at ICC Division III in Oman this November. But with such opportunity comes challenges Gajanand Singh albeit one of the top batsmen on the American circuit for the past three years has never represented USA. Singh is also faced with the question of eligibility, in addition to being named among the notable absentees at the New York Combines this past summer. Singh is currently working on putting any eligibility questions beyond doubt as he stakes his claim to for a run in Associate Cricket. As for the situation at the Combines, Singh states, “that both, eligibility and availability were discussed with Team USA leadership back in June.” Singh did make himself available for the first two days of the Combines scoring a half century in the T20 match. However due to his professional commitments he was unable to attend over the weekend.

Singh believes that US Cricket is a work in progress, which still requires some development. Singh commended that fact that the current setup has a process and that the management team knows the type of individuals they are looking for. Singh is hopeful that Corporate USA can sign on as Cricket continues to develop locally. Singh believes once Corporate America signs on Cricket would truly be able to soar to its really potential.

Gajanand Singh is a big game player, who is confident in his ability. He has the character to carry his team or take his team out of dire situations. Gajanand Singh is a graduate of the 2006 ICC Youth World, where he played alongside, Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard. Gajanand has always been on the professional cricket circuit plying his trade with Guyana between 2008-2011. UWI T20, CPL in addition to a number or US domestic franchise tournaments had kept Singh on the radar. Singh is certain that he can carry Team USA in this current international cycle ahead of the 2020 T20 World Cup and into the 2023 50 over World Cup, alongside the likes of Ali Khan and Steven Taylor.
