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.

West Indies PCL Team of the 7th Round

Can anyone catch the Guyana Jaguars? The Jaguars opened up a 43-point lead at the top of the table with their fifth win of the campaign this time over the Leeward Islands Hurricanes as the West Indies Professional Cricket League (PCL). Even when the Jaguars were in trouble at 41/4 a rearguard unbeaten maiden hundred by wicketkeeper batsman Anthony Bramble (196)  ensured that Guyana posted a sizeable first innings total of 417. Gudesh Motie who is known mostly for his bowling, featured in a 110-run last wicket partnership with Bramble scoring 47 to add to the 72 he scored two rounds earlier as nightwatchman. Slow left arm orthodox bowler Veerasammy Permaul spun a web with 6/32 as the Hurricanes were forced to follow-on bowled out for 149 in the first innings. In the second innings Leewards did just enough to make the Jaguars bat again finishing on 268 on the back of a century by Akeem Saunders (101). Permaul added two more scalps in the second innings a Guyana complete a ten-wicket victory.

Outside of pole position the competition is on. Barbados Pride leapfrogged Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and the Jamaica Scorpions into second with a comprehensive victory over the Red Force. Shamar Brooks (96) and Jonathan Carter (72) led the Pride to 316 in the first innings with Imran Khan 4/81 and Daniel St. Clair 3/72 the most successful bowlers from the Trinbagonians. Only Denesh Ramdin with an unbeaten 132 offered any resistance as the Red Force could only manage 214. Jomal Warrican with 6/71 was the chief destroyer for Barbados. At 221/7 Pride were confident that they had scored enough to force a win with Youth World Cup winner Shamar Springer unbeaten on 51, Khan was again the leading wicket taker with 3/88. Like in the first innings Red Force succumbed to the triple spin attack of Warrican, Walsh and Williams, who all picked up three wickets each to bowled the Pride to a whopping 208-run triumph.

The evergreen Devon Smith led Windward Islands Volcanoes to their first victory this campaign with two hundreds in the match 107* in the first innings and 154 in the second. Batting first against the Jamaica Scorpions the Volcanoes declared on 226/9 with Smith leading the charge as well as Kirk Edwards with a half century. On debut slow left arm orthodox bowler Christopher Lamont nabbed 4/52. The Scorpions could only manage 112/9 before the declaration came. Four wickets each by seamers Sherman Lewis and Kyle Mayers placed the Windwards in the driver seat. The Volcanoes then added 283 to their 114-run first innings lead Smith with his fifth hundred this season. Lamont picked up another three wickets while Damion Jacobs had 4/51. The Scorpions fell short by 119 runs as they closed on 279 with 88 from Brandon King the most noteworthy effort. Mayers followed up his first innings performance with 5/92

West Indies PCL Team of the Week Round 5

Nikita Miller the Jamaica Scorpions Captain, stung Windwards with a 13 wicket-haul and a half century to lead his side to a 10 wicket win in WIPCL round 5, Photo courtesy

Yet another round in the West Indies Professional Cricket League (WIPCL) where there were victories in all three matches. Trinidad and Tobago Red Force had a 180 degree turn coming off an innings defeat at home to the Guyana Jaguars. Inflicted a similar result over the Leeward Island Hurricanes. Red Force were led by Imran Khan who scalped seven wickets in the match along with a rearguard unbeaten 84 to win the man of the match. Khan was aided by Khary Pierre 5/44 in the second innings and Roshon Primus 4/57 with the ball in the first innings. Kyle Hope 84 and Amir Jangoo 96 set the tone for the Red Force innings with a 184 run stand opening partnership.

Like the Red Force, Jamaica Scorpions recorded their second win of the campaign with a ten wicket defeat of bottom side Windward Islands Volcanoes. The the effervescent Devon Smith continued to exuded perspiration from the fountain of youth with 116 and 41 but had little help resisting Nikita Miller’s Scorpions. As it was Miller himself leading the way with a half century (52) off the bat and a 13 wicket-haul with the ball 5/60 and 8/54 earning him the WIPCL player of the round (5th). Miller had support from Fabian Allen who is building a reputation for himself with an unbeaten 105, Allen currently averages 50 plus in First Class (batting). The every reliable John Campbell scored 71.

The question circulating around the Caribbean is, “who is going to stop perennial champions Guyana Jaguars?” The Jaguars always seem to have players standing up for the cause, if the spinners are not putting in the work the quicks are up for the task and the same can be said about the batting. Tagnarine Chanderpaul scored 52 and 62* while nightwatchman Gudesh Motie led the first innings with 72 not out, Chanderpaul Hemraj scored 79, and skipper Leon Johnson 61 in the second innings ensured an eight wicket triumph. But it were the pacemen who led the charge against Barbados Pride, with Youth World Cup winning seamer Keemo Paul 5/59 and 4/63 and Keon Joseph 3/69 and 4/38. Only Kenroy Williams (68) and Justin Greaves (72) offered any resistance to the Jaguars. Spinners Ashley Nurse and Jomal Warrican snared three wickets each.

WIPCL continues with sixth round action on December 7th with Leaders Jaguars hosting the Volcanoes, Hurricanes will be looking to rebound when they welcome the Pride and Red Force visit the Scorpions.
