Gayle hailed for sportsmanship but Kings XI crash out of IPL

Windies batsman Chris Gayle has been commended for a gesture of sportsmanship after walking immediately after being dismissed by the Chennai Super Kings in a must-win encounter on Sunday. Gayle, who was yet to score, headed back to the pavilion after nicking a ball which slid down leg from the back of a length, bowled by Lungi Ngidi. The batsman was not given out by the umpire but Gayle turned and left the pitch without the decision being given. According to TV replays, the batsman was indeed out as the ball touched his gloves before being gobbled up behind the stumps by MS Dhoni. As they have in previous matches, Kings XI struggled following the departure of the Gayle as the team struggled to put runs on the board. After KL Rahul (7) was also dismissed early the team limped to 153 for 10. In response, Suresh Raina scored a patient 48-ball 61 as Chennai made 159 for 5 in 19.1 overs. The result officially eliminated the team from making the IPL playoffs. The win ensures the second spot for MS Dhoni's CSK as they will now head to Mumbai to face Sunrisers Hyderabad for Qualifier 1 at Wankhede Stadium

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
