Len Baichan Bio
Congratulations on an outstanding job chronicling the history of cricket and reporting on current cricket activity in Guyana.
I grew up in Berbice and two players, Lall Munilall and Milton Pydana were my classmates. Played a lot of cricket together as kids. Len Baichan was a close friend as we were from the same village.
Though he played mainly for 3 clubs, New Amsterdam Sports, Fort Canje Hospital and Rosehall Welfare Center, because of the guidance he received from captain Ancel Hazel and his meteoric rise to national recognition was with Rosehall, I think his club should be listed as Rosehall and not Fort Canje.
BTW, the most talented of my 3 friends was Muni. He could cover drive like an adult since he was 10 years old.
Keep up the great work.
Farook, your compliments and cricket information are highly appreciated!
This website is a voluntary and independent effort to pay tribute to Guyana cricketers, many of whom have excelled in world cricket, despite numerous constraints. I strive to keep the site's information organised and accessible, by using excellent open source software like Drupal.
I edited Baichan's biography to incorporate the information you provided.
Thanks again, and all the best at Baylor College of Medicine.
