|Lists of matches and more detailed statistics|
Ron Matthews took 2 five-wicket hauls in an innings while playing for the Guyana Under-19 team in the annual regional competition, in Guyana in 2000. This, and the fact that his father was a Guyana fast bowler and leg-spinner, pointed to a promising career for the young off-spinner.
He made his debut for his county Demerara later in 2000, then his first class debut for the Guyana senior team a few months later, in 2001. This was followed by a tour to England with the West Indies Under-19 team.
Ordinary performances for the Guyana senior team, however, and the chance to emigrate to the USA, cut short his cricket career in Guyana, while he was still a teenager.
