Griffith was among the best batters in the League, with a century and a fifty among other eye-catching innings to his credit.Selectors have opted for a decent trio of left-arm spinners in Ricardo Adams, who will play a big role with bat as well; Gudakesh Motie, veteran Veerasammy Permaul, and franchise player Ramaal Lewis.The seamer department will be led by Windies Test all-rounder Raymon Reifer, with pacer Clinton Pestano being the other frontline fast bowler named in the team. National youth all-rounder Ronaldo Alimohammed and wicket-keeper/batsman Kemol Savory, who finished with the most dismissals in the league, along with 176 runs, including a century, are on stand-by, and will join the team as selected players depart to fulfil their duties on the Windies tour to India.The coaching staff for the Jaguars remains the same, with the seasoned duo of Esuan Crandon and Rayon Griffith being Coach/Assistant-Coach to manage the team. Griffith recently completed stints as West Indies ‘A’ Manager as well as Guyana Amazon Warriors Assistant Head Coach in the 2018 Hero CPL, while Crandon has been expanding his fame as he recently coached the Windies B team along with skipper Bramble in Canada. The team’s Physiotherapist is Neil Barry Jr.Meanwhile, the Guyana Jaguars are scheduled to depart on Sunday 30th September, 2018 through the Cheddi Jagan International Airport as they prepare to capture the elusive 50-over title held by the Windward Volcanoes.
