Damodar Daesrath, a former Guyana captain, will debut for Canada in their ICC Intercontinental Cup game against Scotland next week. Daesrath has been playing club cricket in Canada for the past four years.

He last represented Guyana in a first-class fixture in March 2005 before settling in Canada. Daesrath has played for the Brampton Masters Cricket Club in the Toronto Elite competition, captaining them for the last two years.

"I [am] extremely delighted to be named in Canada's senior team for the first time and I am eager to go out there and make a big impression for them as early as possible," Daesrath said. "I love playing cricket in Canada. The standard is very good and I can truly compare it to inter-county cricket tournament in Guyana which I think is very competitive."

Daesrath's first game for Canada will be a four-day match against Scotland in Glasgow where he will join Jeremy Gordon, another ex- Guyana player, who made his Canada debut against his former team in the Caribbean T20 in January this year.

"It will be a challenging experience for my first outing with Canada but I think I am prepared and equipped to meet the high demand on the international scene," Daesrath said.

I love when these guys begin their career by stating they want to make a big impression and cannot register ONE half century on the semi-international stage.
