Johnson unhappy with performance

GEORGETOWN, Guyana - Guyana’s leading scorer in both the four-day and super50 competitions, Leon Johnson, says he is not satisfied with his performance during the 2013 season.

The middle-order batsman was Guyana’s best batsman on show, displaying a level of consistency that has been eluding him in nine years at the regional level

In an interview with the Guyana Times, the 25-year-old Johnson said he felt in good form but was disappointed not to have converted several starts.

“I’m not fully satisfied with my performance,” said Johnson who appeared for the West Indies in three ODIs in Canada in August 2008.

“During the tournament I was in really good form, and even though I finished [as the] leading runscorer for Guyana in both formats, I couldn’t convert half-centuries and starts into bigger scores”.

In the Four-day version, the former West Indies Under-19 skipper ended the preliminary phase of the competition the third highest runscorer with 430 runs from six matches at an average of 35.83, scoring three fifties in the process.

In the Super50 tournament, he also finished the preliminaries as the third leading runscorer with 204 runs from six games at an average of 34.00 and a solitary half-century.

Guyana finished fifth in the Four-day on 18 points with one win and four defeats, and sixth in the Super50 with just eight points from two victories.

“I think our batting let us down especially in the Four-day tournament,” said the left-hander.

“Our bowling and fielding improved as the tournament went on, but collectively as a batting unit we didn’t do well”.
