Solozano attributes hard work for success

By STEPHON NICHOLAS Saturday, April 19 2014

STAR East Zone Under-19 batsman, Jeremy Solozano, believes hard work is the key to his recent sensational form that has seen him compile back-to-back centuries in the BGTT Under-19 Zonal competition.

The left-hander slammed a match-winning 158 against South East at Honeymoon Park in the semi-final on Wednesday to send his team into the final where they will come up against a tough South team.

In the last game of the group stage, Solozano was again among the runs with an entertaining double century versus North.

The 18-year-old’s sensational knock of 236 featured 27 fours and two sixes as East posted a massive 400 all out.

Speaking to Newsday yesterday, Solozano explained the reason for his run of form recently.

“I’m getting back some confidence. Thanks to God because without him nothing is possible. I’ve been training harder and really working on my fitness and improving the mental aspect of my game,” he said. Commenting on the upcoming final against South, Solozano stated he is focussed solely on helping his team put runs on the board for a good score.

“I’m just trying to go out there and do my best. I want to play my role in the team and help them cross the finish line,” he continued.

The Queen’s Park batsman, who represented the West Indies at the ICC Under-19 World Cup in March this year, credited that appearance too for helping him realise his deficiencies and now he is a much better batsman as a result.

It was not a great tournament for Solozano who averaged just 15.00 with just one half-century from five matches.

“The Under-19 World Cup made me more experienced. I knew what I needed to work on when I got back and now I am getting the results,” he pointed out.

Asked if he is ready for perhaps another call-up to the national team, Solozano said: That is what I am working for. I just want to be patient and try to keep my good form going.”

The left-hander has played just one First-class match for the Red Force, earning a call-up for last year’s Regional Four-Day semi-final against Jamaica.
