Meets President Donald Ramotar
The American Cricket Society (ACS) team of New York, USA, which is presently on a two weeks good will tour of Guyana, took the opportunity on Sunday to interact with President Donald Ramotar during the president’s visit to the Corentyne area to commission the refurbished Chesney Sports Club ground and pavilion. However, the team’s tour is being hampered by the inclement weather.
The team, which is made up of predominately Guyanese, was formed in 1981 and started to compete in 1982.
According to former captain Zamin Amin, who was also a former national U-19 player in Guyana, they have been dominating the cricket scene since their entry into the game in their adopted country.
Presently they are the 40 overs and 20/20 cricket champions in New York and are a member of the Eastern American Cricket Association which has about 18 teams and a number of leagues.
The team is presently being captained by former national U-19 captain Karan Ganesh and includes a number of former national U-19 players. Ganesh is presently a member of the USA senior team.
The highlight of their visit is expected to be a feature 40 overs cricket match against the Chesney Cricket club today at the recently re-commissioned Chesney Sports club ground, beginning at 11:00 hrs.
They are hoping the weather improves so that they could get a few matches under their belt.
The cricket season in the USA runs from May to September. Their league starts next Sunday and their first match is in two weeks.
The full ACS team reads – Karan Ganesh captain, Zamin Amin, Terry Hastoo, Tamesh Balwant, Haryman Joseph and Diant Roopnarine, who would have all represented Guyana at some stage, while the other players are Telston Johnson, Clain Williams, Suresh Wazim, Hasant Amin, Bobby Deonarine, Ralph Ogle and Barbadian Dwain Smith. Prem Manbodh is the manager.
