Veerasammy Permaul, the Guyana Harpy Eagles left-arm spinner is celebrating a monumental feat in regional cricket.
Last Friday, he reached the milestone of 500 wickets for Guyana in regional first-class cricket. In so doing, he etched his name in the history books as the first bowler from Guyana to accomplish such a feat.
The magic moment came when he took the wicket of Keon Harding of Barbados Pride on the third day of the West Indies Championship contest at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.
Overall, Permaul has played 130 first-class matches.
He has taken 574 wickets and bowled close to 30,000 balls.
On Saturday he ended with 2-28 to have six wickets in the match as the Guyanese defeated the Bajans.
Congratulations to Veerasammy Permaul for a massive milestone.👏🏿
