The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) congratulates Gudakesh Motie on his maiden call up for the West Indies Test team. West Indies will play Bangladesh in Two Test series from June 16 to 28, 2022.
The 27-year-old, who hails from Albion, earned his call-up following outstanding performances for Guyana in all formats during the past year.
The left-arm spinner has played 34 First-Class matches for Guyana and West Indies ‘A’ teams taking 117 wickets with best figures of 6-20.
In the recently concluded West Indies Championship, Motie struck his maiden First-Class century against eventual champions Barbados - a shot filled 110 to showcase his improving batting prowess.
Motie made his international debut when he played a T20 international against Pakistan in Karachi on December 16, 2021.
The President and Executive members of the Guyana Cricket Board would like to extend best wishes to Motie as he looks to make his mark in Test cricket. (Press release)
