Former Guyana fast bowler Trevon Garraway wants to play again

Former Guyana fast bowler Trevon Garraway is still anxious to represent his country again at the highest level. He made this statement on Sunday in Toronto after a superb bowling performance for Hawaiian Arctic Cricket Club in the final of the 2013 limited-over Scarborough Cricket League. 

Garraway was outstanding grabbing four wickets for six runs from 4.4 accurate overs to help his team winning by a comprehensive ten-wicket margin over Bawan XI.

(HACC) humiliated them at Ashtonbee number pitch. Garraway was dominant as the oppositions were tumbled out for a meagre 25 off 20.4 overs.

Garraway in an exclusive interview with this writer just after the completion of the memorable game expressed great delight with his massive effort and was also happy to see his team pulled off such a historical performance.

He also took the opportunity to say that he wants to represent his country again at the highest level while he simultaneously ambitious of playing for West Indies too. 

“I [am] extremely delighted with my performance today (Sunday); we went out there and play to the best of our ability and I think we deserved the championship trophy again; yes, I have the desire to represent West Indies but I have to first get into the national team and put in good performances so the selectors can see I am doing well,” Garraway, who featured in 12 West Indies Cricket Board regional four-day matches for his native country related.

The 29-year-old Garraway, who has been playing professionally in Canada for the past five years, also mentioned that he has enjoyed his stint so far while he played softball cricket too representing GT Banas. He promised to make the trip to North America on an annual basis, once given the opportunity.

 “I think as a cricketer you just want to play competitively as much as you can and playing among a number of former cricketers from Guyana and by extension the West Indies, gives me great pleasure and encouragement to play again for my country at the highest level, but I have got to take wickets consistently,” the former Essequibo senior inter-county skipper reckoned.

Garraway cited that the competition is very challenging and had to work very hard to churn out good performances. He feels playing with several Guyana teammates also motivated him to do well. Among those players featured in the final were former West Indies and Guyana player Royston Crandon and Canada and Guyana batsman Hemnarine Chattergoon.

“We have got a lot of players from back playing competitively over here on an annual basis and that really gives you the motivation to play seriously; the guys have been great both on and off the field and I think we can be more progressive and dominant next year; winning the championships for four successive years also pleasing,” Garraway revealed.
