GSCL Inc. 12/12 C’ships…Rain forces abandonment of play, tournament pushed back to this weekend
HEAVY and persistent early morning showers forced the organisers of the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Incorporated (GSCL) second 12/12 championships to abandon play for Saturday and yesterday.
The venue was left in a waterlogged state in some areas and some executive members of the GSCL Inc. who were present at the venue, decided to cancel play for both opening days and will now have teams compete for supremacy from this weekend.
At stake in the tournament, the second of its kind following the formation of the GSCL Inc. since May, is a first prize of $600,000 and a trophy, with the second placed team collecting $200,000 and a trophy.
Apart from the abovementioned prizes, the Man-of-the-Series will receive one three-piece living room suite, the best batsman and bowler will each walk away with $5, 000 and a trophy and the Man-of-the-Match in the final, $10, 000 and a trophy.
Deputy Permanent Secretary within the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, Steve Ninvalle, is expected to give some brief remarks and later declare the tournament open which will have giveaways for spectators.
