Lists of matches and more detailed statistics

Dereck Kallicharran made his debut for the Guyana Under-19 team in the 1976 annual (Benson & Hedges) youth competition, in Guyana. He made his first class debut for Guyana, against Barbados at the Kensington Oval in 1979, and then for Berbice against Demerara, also in 1979. In 1981 he played 2 matches for the Warwickshire 2nd XI.

Dereck's father represented the Berbice Indians in the inter-county Flood Cup competition between Indo-Guyanese, and his brother Alvin represented Berbice, Guyana and the West Indies.

In 1983 he scored 4 half-centuries and took 6 for 60 in an innings, which lead to his inclusion in a Young West Indies team to tour Zimbabwe later in 1983. Though he scored 3 half centuries on that tour, his bowling was rather odrinary. He made his List A debut fo Guyana in 1983 and remained a useful player for Guyana for the rest of his career, which came to an end in 1986, in rather unhappy circumstances.

A disagreement with Berbice Cricket Board officials over the quality of accomodations for Berbice players in an inter-county match led to Kallicharran relinquishing the Berbice captaincy and declaring himself no longer available for Guyana. He also expressed an interest in playing cricket in apatheid South Africa, like his brother Alvin.

Dereck migrated to the USA and represented that country from 1988 to 1997. He has been a member of the Friends of Former Guyana Cricketers oganisation, which played several matches in Guyana in 2012.
