The first semifinal of the annual Bakewell sponsored 15-overs Inter Jamaat softball cricket competition will be contested on Sunday at the Muslim Youth Organisation Ground, Woolford Avenue and Albert Streets, Georgetown.

Farm ‘C’ is the other team to have booked a place in the semifinals but they will know their opponent on Sunday which will be the winner of the quarterfinal match between Farm ‘A’ and Windsor Forest which will commence at 09:00hrs.
The final game of the day brings together Farm ‘C’ and the winner of the quarterfinal match-up and this will bowl off at 13:00hrs.
