Following a successful season in the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) Professional Cricket League (PCL) Four-day competition, Guyana Jaguars skipper Leon Johnson is of the view that his stellar performances could provide a pathway back into the regional side.

Johnson, during an exclusive interview with this publication, said he is wary of the fact that to cement to a place in the side he needs to produce big scores.

“It’s about getting bigger scores actually; I have managed to get four half-centuries in the four Tests I have played and some thirties and forties, but probably a the Test level those kind of scores won’t cut it, but it’s about getting  the opportunity and then able to get big scores and contribute towards the team’s success,” Johnson explained…

After playing 73 First-Class matches, he has scored 28 half-centuries, but only four centuries since making his debut for Guyana in 2004.

In recognising the need to improve on his conversion rate, Johnson said, “It’s mainly down to concentration, once I’m able to concentrate for longer periods I will be able to convert those half-centuries into centuries; most of the times after I get the half-century and then get out, it’s probably a rash shot as I get too relaxed at the crease…”
