Mohammed rescues Red Force with unbeaten 79

Jason Mohammed … top-scored for Red Force.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Jason Mohammed rescued his season with an unbeaten half-century as Trinidad and Tobago Red Force batted all day, to put leaders Guyana Jaguars under pressure in their sixth round Regional Four-Day contest here Friday.

The 32-year-old Mohammed has endured a wretched run in the current campaign, mustering just 91 runs from eight innings. His previous highest score was 19 against Barbados Pride in the last round two weeks ago.

However, he put that dismal form behind him to top score with an unbeaten 79 as Red Force reached 264 for five in their second innings at the close at Queen’s Park Oval.

He struck eight fours in an innings spanning 189 deliveries and just shy of four hours.

Mohammed put on 51 for the fifth wicket with Yannic Cariah (15) and has so far added 83 for the sixth with Imran Khan who was unbeaten on 40 off 94 balls.

Their knocks followed the enterprise of openers Joshua Da Silva who hit 49 and Jeremy Solozano, 45, the pair posting a handsome 84 for the first wicket, after the hosts resumed the day on 13 without loss.

West Indies left-arm seamer Raymon Reifer (2-32) removed both openers in a slide that saw Red Force lose four wickets for 46 runs before Mohammed stepped up to stabilise the innings.

Crucially, Red Force lead by 222 runs heading into day three of the contest.

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.
