Appreciate Swanneh For The Genius He Is.
Bore off, seriously.
Point me to the rule you're referring to KK?
Are you serious? The name of the FC team was British Guiana and NOT Guyana back in those days. You can check the same in his Cricinfo profile as well.
And British Guiana doesnt start with 'G', my friend!

Guyana IS British Guiana though. They're the same thing. One was whilst the team under British rule, the other whilst independent.
And also, one word of British Guiana starts with 'G'. *shrugs*
I'll let Jager and Cevno (whose clause it was) decide I guess. Both of the backups for the pick have also gone since I made the pick which is an annoyance as well.

Devillier has the ability to show ball the right path, there are two ways to do so, 1. form where the ball is coming, 2 where the ball is going to
Amla can just hit the ball harder with the use of timing and strock
Devilliers is younger so he will learn with the passage of time
Devilliers plays in all the situations and conditons while all amla is a powerplay player
So Devillieris can be said as better
We have already set a precedent of being a little flexible with the clauses. Therefore Guyana should be OK.
Or put it this way. If you currently walked into the Guyana Cricket Club foyer you'd probably see a plaque on the wall listing the clubs famous players. It would be headed 'Guyana Cricket Club - Famous Players', and Walcott would be on it.

Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
