This is not an approved event
It has come to my attention through news media reports that a businessman and the Essequibo Cricket Board are organizing a 20/20 cricket tournament.
Please be advised that this tournament has not been organized within the framework for Approved Cricket in accordance with the Regulations on Approved and Disapproved Cricket and Domestic Cricket Events of the ICC which came into effect on June 1, 2009.Applications for approval of a cricket match or event – outside of what is detailed in the List of Approved and Pre-approved cricket – must be made in writing to the WICB at least 30 days prior to the start of the event.
The List of Approved and Pre-Approved Cricket along with a document outlining the Responsibility and Approval for Cricket in the West Indies are available and for viewing and download on the WICB website.
I strongly urge you to seek the approval of the Guyana Cricket Board for this event and ask us to facilitate your request with the WICB, failure obtain approval of this event, will entail grave consequences for participating boards, players and officials.Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further clarification you may require.
