Sarwan to lead President’s XI

Ramnaresh Sarwan, the ex-West Indies skipper will lead the President’s XI team in their upcoming 20 overs-a-side match against the Master’s XI on August 9, as a feature part in the 2014 Guyana Festival held at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence.

The 34-year-old Sarwan, who recently returned from England, will lead a contemporary squad of cricketers as they seek to topple the more classical and vintage attributes of the Master’s XI, which will be led by former Guyana and West Indies

batsman Clayton Lambert.

The President’s XI will bank on the experience of Sarwan who has played 87 Test and 181 ODI’s for the West Indies while veteran West Indies middle-order batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, ex-West Indies opener Sewnarine Chattergoon and former Guyana and West Indies pacer Reon King is expected to roll back the years come this weekend.
