Lists of matches and more detailed statistics

Esuan Crandon is a skillful fast-medium bowler who can bowl big inswingers to right-handers under the right conditions. Praised for his high work ethics, he established himself as Guyana's leading pace bowler in the early 2000s, and at one time was a contender for a place in the West Indies team. In 2006 he represented the West Indies in the Hong Kong International Sixes tournament. In 2007 he represented Denton St Lawrence in the Lancashire League.

He made significant contributions with the bat as a pinch hitter in Twenty20 cricket and was instrumental in helping Guyana to win the regional Twenty20 competition in 2008 and 2010.

In 2012, in the midst of the Guyana Cricket Board crisis, he was appointed coach of the Guyana team, after he seemed to have lost interest in playing for Guyana. The Guyana team made significant progress under his stewardship, which is probably due to his high work ethics and his ability to get along well with the players.

Esuan is the older brother of Royston Crandon, who represented Guyana, and the West Indies, in the same period.
