West Indies youth batsman Kevlon Anderson is considered one of the best youth batsmen in the Caribbean.
The ever classy Anderson often showed maturity with the bat in several older local competitions in Guyana.
The diminutive Berbice, who prefers his bat to do the talking, hopes he will get a chance to play for the Guyana Jaguars.
During a recent interview with Guyana Times, Anderson spoke about his desire to play for the Guyana Jaguars, the knowledge he walked away with from the Under-19 World Cup and how he is keeping fit during the pandemic .
“I just want to thank God for life. I’ve been to the gym with the older guys, the academy so that keeps me going, ”said Anderson.
Sharing his feelings on a future Jaguars call, Anderson noted that he had patience and when given that opportunity, he would aim to grab it with both hands.
Playing for the West Indies under-19 team was an invaluable experience, says the right-hander. “I am privileged to have been there and feel where competitive cricket is starting from, and it is up to me to make that step forward (playing senior cricket),” explained Anderson.
Anderson, batting at number three, scored 162 runs, the second highest by an Indian from the West at the last U-19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa, and he also scored a century in the World Cup warm-up. He finished the tournament with an average of 40.50 and a high score of 86.
The right wing, who plays his local cricket for Rose Hall Youth and Town Sports Club (RHTY & SC), was named in the Guyana Jaguars training squad to play three practice matches in preparation for the slated Super50 Regional Cup for February. It will aim to register strong performances and push closer to that higher team call. (Brandon Corlette)
