Fri, Dec 9, '16
Joseph ‘Reds’ Perreira has progressed from humble beginnings and overcome several hurdles including a stroke in Australia to become Guyana’s best Radio Cricket Commentator and a household name around the World.
Yesterday, at the Tower Hotel in Georgetown, Guyana, the 77-year-old Pertreira, his silver locks shimmering in the bright morning sunshine, officially announced his retirement from First-Class cricket commentary to bring an end to an iconic career on the Microphone where it all began in 1961 in Guyana at Rose Hall Canjie where he made his debut on Radio when British Guiana played Trinidad & Tobago.
Reds’ last assignment on Radio will be describing the action in today’s historic four-day Day/Night First-Class game between Guyana and Barbados at Providence. This brings an end to an illustrious 372- First-Class matches, 147-Tests and 202-ODI career in Radio commentary which has taken him to every cricket playing Country except Bangladesh.
A day of toil in the field at Sabina Park in Kingston ended in further disappointment for the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force yesterday in the DigicelRegional Four-Day fourth-round match.
Replying to the Jamaica Scorpions' first innings effort of 314, the Red Force openers Kyle Hope and Isaiah Rajah seemed to the taking their side safely to the close before two wickets fell in two balls in the last over of the day to leave the Red Force struggling on 35 for two.
Rajah (nine, two fours) gave a catch to wicketkeeper Devon Thomas off the bowling of leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, first ball of the last over, and nightwatchman Marlon Richards followed immediately when he was adjudged lbw.
Those two body blows put an end to the positive response Rajah and opening partner Kyle Hope had made. They had put together 35 in 23 minutes, including a six from Hope and Rajah's two boundaries.
