RHT Pepsi and Albion to battle on Tuesday & Wednesday at Albion
After being delayed for months due to the consistent bad weather in the Ancient County, the Berbice Cricket Board has decided to set the final of the Memorex Enterprise sponsored Leslie Amsterdam Memorial Under-17 cricket competition for next Tuesday and Wednesday at the Albion Community Centre Ground which is top condition despite the rain.
Battling for championship will be the two top Berbice teams, Rose Hall Town Pepsi and Albion Community Centre.

Defending champions Rose Hall Town will be spearheaded by their national all-rounders Shailendra Shameer and Arif Chan both bowling off spin, they will be backed up by some of their colleagues with Under-15 Inter County experience in off-spinner Daniel Lewis all-rounders Viendra Gooniah, Devin Baldeo and wicketkeeper batsman Nicholas Cameron. Also donning the uniform will be Berbice female off-spinner Phaffiana Millington.
Albion will depend heavily on their three national Under-17 players; left arm spinner Gudakesh Motie who also represented Guyana at the Under-19 level last year and two off spinning all-rounders, Sharaz Ramcharran and David Latchaya.
The other noteworthy cricketer in the side will be Balchand Baldeo who registered scores of 99 and 100 in his team’s quarter final and semi-final respectively.
