ECCB competition continues tomorrow
The East Coast Cricket Board (ECCB) 40-over competition will continue tomorrow with several matches. Fairfield will host Cane Grove, Bravados will play Perseverance at Unity, Strathaven will entertain Helena 1 and 2, Enterprise B will be at home to Mon Repos Development, Ogle will face Better Hope B at Better Hope, Plaisance will journey to Lusignan to challenge their B team and Ogle will battle Enterprise A at Ogle.
Meanwhile, the ECCB is calling the relevant authorities (NDCs, IMCs and GUYSUCO) who have the responsibilities for the preparation of the grounds and facilities on the East Coast to make a special effort in ‘fixing’ their grounds.
In most cases, all that is required is cutting the playing area and the preparation of the pitch. It has been more than five weeks since the resumption of the cricket on the East Coast and the ECCB is finding it difficult to organize matches consisting of forty-one (41) teams with only seven (7) grounds available. It must be noted that East Coast (Abary to Ogle) has twenty-six (26) cricket grounds.
