Simmons: “For me, we lost control of the game in 5 or 6 overs

Simmons: “For me, we lost control of the game in 5 or 6 overs with the new ball yesterday evening. We were in a place where we were in a good position to bat through the day and through some of today and close off the game, but a spell from Broad there is where we lost the game"
England began the day 37-2 in their second innings, leading by 219 and needing quick runs before trying to take 10 wickets. A superb onslaught from Stokes (78no off 57 balls) saw 92 added in 11 overs, triggering a declaration which left the West Indies 312 to chase in 85 overs. Hopes of the Windies reaching that target, or holding out for a draw th
  Ben Stokes: "The way we bowled all day was unbelievable. I think the way Broady has come back and has been absolutely awesome. Everyone has put their hands up and contributed to a great win."
Stokes cracked 78 not out from 57 balls to allow England to declare on 129-3, setting West Indies 312 to win or 85 overs to survive. Broad took 3-1 on the fourth evening and tore through the top order with three more wickets on Monday to leave West Indies 37-4. Their recovery came in the shape of a century partnership between Jermaine Blackwood and
The Day 5 drama of cricket. England won and all my money to the ben stokes the way he played in either of the innings which levelled the series 1-1 to mark it for the Decider at the tail-end of this week.
Who is Joshua Da Silva and is he a future West Indies opener? by Wisden Staff Joshua Da Silva caught the eye of many onlookers when scoring an unbeaten 133 in West Indies’ final intra-squad warm-up game at Old Trafford. But what’s his story, and could he make a debut this series? In the run-up to the Caribbean red-ball campaign, Joshua Da Silva was
Jofra Archer has been left out of the England side for the second Test against West Indies at Emirates Old Trafford following a breach of the team's biosecurity protocols. Archer was included in England's 13-man squad on Wednesday, but the ECB released a statement at 8am on the morning of the Test saying that he had been "excluded" and would enter
Holder: "Shai is a quality player; we’ve seen that particularly the last time he came here in England, and his ODI form has been really good, so I have all confidence he will deliver. He just needs to get himself in, get himself going and he is going to go big for us” [SportsMax]
Just five Tests old he might be but England off-spinner Dom Bess believes his “consistency and accuracy” is “dangerous” at the moment, something that might give him a consistent presence in the national squad. The 22-year-old took two wickets in the first innings of the opening Test against the West Indies at Southampton but went wicketless on the
Broad was England’s best bowler in the Ashes series and leaving him out of the playing XI at Southampton led to a lot of raised eyebrows. Among those who has joined the growing clamour for Broad’s inclusion for the second Test is former England off spinner and commentator Graeme Swann. “If you want to know how to beat anybody as an England team, yo
      England were dismissed for 204 thanks to West Indies' captain Jason Holder's superb 6-42 on day two of the first Test at an empty Southampton. Holder, who at one stage took 3-1 in 14 deliveries, was backed up by 4-62 from the pacy Shannon Gabriel. On a pitch offering plenty for the bowlers, England's batsmen showed ob

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.
