Devers returns to Radio for New Zealand Test series
Kaieteur News article.
Georgetown, Guyana - International radio cricket commentator, Guyanese Sean Devers, is set to make his radio come back in next month’s New Zealand three-Test series against West Indies.
The former Guyana Under-19 off-spinner has recovered from a life threatening Brain Tumor Surgery on October 2, 2012. The 44-year-old Devers was then diagnosed with Brain Cancer and was subjected to six weeks of daily Radiation therapy after his surgery at the Brian Lara Cancer Treatment Center in Trinidad.
Devers, who made his Test debut as a radio commentator in 2001 when South Africa toured the Caribbean, has been Cancer free since December 31 last year and claims that God saved his life so that he could be a Testimony to God’s might.
“I am happy to be back doing what I most love doing but at the same time my whole life has changed. I no longer take things for granted and I am learning how to deal with stress. God is a mighty God and if he can do this for me he can do it for anyone. You just have to have faith in him,” Devers, who is also scheduled to commentate in the Test series involving Bangladesh in September, disclosed.
Devers has commentated on every Test match in Guyana since 2001 in addition to Test matches in Dominica, Jamaica, Trinidad, St Kitts and Barbados before falling ill in December 2011 just after his last Test when Pakistan opposed the home team in a two-Test series in May 2011.
The first Test involving New Zealand and West Indies is fixed for June 8-12 in Jamaica, the second Test is set for Trinidad from June 16-20 and the third and final Test will be played in Guyana from June 26-30. The two- Test series against Bangladesh is scheduled for St Vincent and St Lucia.
