Current age: 30 years
Playing role: Batsman

This unsung hero has had some cliff-hanger matches for the Warriors during his debut season with the Amazon Warriors (GAW) last year, where he averaged 47.8 with the bat after 12 matches. Speaking with Guyana Times Sport, Mohammed revealed his most memorable moment in the league.
“When GAW played Tridents in Florida…, we needed 4 runs from 4 balls, and I got my team to victory with a six off the 3rd ball”. Mohammed has had an indifferent return to West Indies colours, but Guyanese fans should remember his scintillating 91 not out, made in 58 balls in helping the West Indies to their highest successful chase in One Day Internationals. The stylish 30-year-old batsman, a passionate lover of steak and mashed potatoes, dreams of becoming a singer, and plans on again doing his best for the Warriors in their bid for championship glory. He is urging all fans to come out in their numbers in support of the team.
The batsman is expected to be the link between the middle and lower-order, hopefully powering the Warriors to several victories.Full name: Gajanand Singh
Born: October 3, 1987, Berbice, Guyana
Current age 29 years
Batting style: Left-hand bat
Bowling style: Right-arm off-spinSingh was, and possibly still is, one of Guyana’s most talented batsmen. He has a wide range of eye-catching shots, but took a break from the game to focus on his family.
His selection comes approximately two months after a superb display at the University of the West Indies (UWI) T20 tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. In that tournament, he scored 328 runs from five innings, getting out only once as he guided Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) to the final of that tournament, rounding off a good year for the 29-year-old Berbician. He is ecstatic about his selection to compete in the Warriors’ colours.
Singh told Guyana Times Sport that if he was not a cricketer, he would have aspired to be an attorney-at-law. He said he loves Guyanese cuisine, has been married for five years, and has one daughter.
The Berbician is urging all fans to come out and support the team. “This year, we need more support. We have been going to finals for the last three of four years, and this year we need more support. Come out and support us, and be (with the) Warriors as we take this one step further to the championship,” he admonishes the fans. Should he be given opportunity to make the team, Singh offers the team great impetus at the top of the innings, and can be a great asset in the middle order.
