Omesh Danram selected for CGI

first_imgExcelling at the top of his level representing the University of Guyana cricket team, Omesh Danram has continued to prove that he is a dangerous factor and should not be taken lightly as his hard training is now a testament to his success as he has earned a spot in the Cricket Guyana Inc (CGI) franchise.Omesh Danram scores 59* against MYO in the NBS Second-Division 40-Over tournamentIn 2014, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) set up the CGI; this body would now oversee the smooth operations of the franchise system on behalf of the West Indies Cricket Board now known as Cricket West Indies (CWI), thus more players were exposed and given the opportunity of playing competitive cricket and getting a chance for selection to the national team.In the recently-concluded New Building Society (NBS) Second-Division 40-Over tournament, Danram batting at number four finished with an impressive 285 runs at an average of 40, thus placing him on the radar for selection.In an exclusive interview with Guyana Times Sport when asked what this opportunity would create for him, Danram said, “I’m really delighted to be selected and showcase my ability amongst Guyana’s best players in the country. I am able to be placed on a platform where I can gain more knowledge from experienced players and that is really invaluable. It will help me to test my cricketing abilities in all areas, plus it’s a major boost to know that you are being viewed by all members of the cricketing fraternity, and people will see you and recognise you.”He also stated that when he entered the NBS Second-Division 40-Over tournament, his goal was to be the top runs scorer as that was his personal goal. He noted that he started off the competition with 49* against Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and then he went on to make 131 against Police and even 121 against GDF in the First Division tournament as runs were now coming easier. In his closing remarks, Danram stated that he would like to thank his coach and parents because they have always been there supporting him from day one.Thus far Danram has played one match so far representing Georgetown in the CGI on September 27, 2018, and made a well-played 59*; therefore, climbing the ladder as he aims to make his name known and be selected for the national side.last_img read more
