Guyanese Test Keepers

"Guyana's production of wicket-keepers has been somewhat limited. Wicket-keeping has remained Guyana's major weakness."

Shimron Odilon Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer was born in Cumberland Village, East Canje. He joined Young Warriors Cricket Club when he was 11 years old and was selected for the Berbice Under-15 team 2 years later. Though he did not score many runs in the Under-15 inter-county competition, his obvious talent earned him a place on the Guyana Under-15 team, where he excelled. As a result, he was selected for a WICB special training camp in St Lucia.

Brian Sattaur

Even though he is not technically correct as an opener, his ability to hit the ball over the infield whether there are restrictions or not serves him well, as he loves the feel of the ball coming off his bat. His pugnacious attitude as an opener can serve his team well.

Brian Sattaur captained the Demerara Under-15 team in the 2009 inter-county Under-15 championship.

Dinesh Kenrick Mangal

Nicknamed the “Turtle” by his teammates, his movement behind the stumps makes that a misnomer, especially when he effects his lighting fast stumping. He could be identified as one of the shortest players in the Guyana youth team.

Dinesh made his debut for the Guyana Under-15 team in 2009. The fact that he has been retained years later for the Under-19 team indicates that he is one of the best, if not the best, young wicketkeeper in Guyana today.

Balram Samaroo

Balram Samaroo made his debut for the Berbice youth team as a wicketkeeper and middle order batsman in the 2000 Guyana inter-county youth competition. He also represented the West Indies Development XI in regional youth cricket lthat same year, but as an all-rounder (not a wicketkeeper). In 2003 he represented Berbice in the inter-county competition with fair success.

Kenzo Baksh

Kenzo Baksh made his debut for Essequibo in the 2009 4-day Inter-County tournament, as a wicketkeeper and opening batsman.

Derwin Christian

Derwin Christian made his debut for Guyana in the 2001 Regional Under-19 Tournament, played in Guyana.

Delbert Hicks

Delbert Hicks is a wicketkeeper/batsman from Berbice and is one of several batsmen tried by Guyana in the 2000s in an attempt to find a good wicketkeeper who can bat well.

He started his youth career impressively for Guyana by taking 5 catches in an innings against Trinidad and Tobago in 2002 in a regional Under-19 one-day match in Kinston, Jamaica.

Anthony Bramble

Wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble made his debut for Guyana in the 2008 TCL Group regional Under-19 competition, in Barbados, scoring 51 in his very first innings. He played again in the 2009 TCL Group regional Under-19 competition, in Jamaica.

He made his List A debut for Guyana in the 2010 West Indies Cricket Board Cup, in Jamaica, with moderate success.
