By John L. Aaron
New York Region will be represented by a very competent squad at this year’s United States of America Cricket Association’s Under-19 Eastern Conference Cricket Tournament, scheduled for Atlanta, Georgia from July 14 – 16.

Set to leave next Thursday evening for the Peach State, will be a fourteen-man squad that includes young all-rounder Gregory Sewdial, Dwayne Hurley, Akeem Dodson, (Vice Capt.), Hanuman Ramsadag, Dwayne Smith, Karan Ganesh (Capt.), David A Umadhan, Alexandino Kirton, Saud Mohamed Hossein, Hunain Munir, Surindra Sukhdeo, Jarein Thomas, Anand V. Singh and Basdeo Ramnarain.

The stand-by players are Shaan H Mehta, Joel Clarke, Muhendra Hariraj and Sean Mendonza. The team officials are Linden Fraser (Coach) and Rudy Persaud, Manager.
Also accompanying the team will be Lloyd Dickson and Gary Nascimento with Carlyle Miller, one of the New York Regional Directors.

The New York Regional squad is expected to give a good account of themselves, as representatives of the Empire State, against the South East, North East and Atlantic regions.

The outstanding New York batsmen in the squad are Umadhan, and Hoosein, each with recent centuries in the current Tri-state tournament and wicket-keeper batsman Dodson, recently back from the Under-19 World Youth Championships in Sri Lanka and Anand Singh – a quick scorer. Munir, Kirton, Thomas and Smith, among others, are expected to uphold the bowlers end.

Skipper Ganesh wields both the ball and the bat extremely well and is much qualified to lead his group of young peers.

Cricket International wishes the New York Region youngsters all the very best in Atlanta.
