Heavy rainfall over the past few days has inundated the Everest Cricket Club Ground and forced organizers to postpone activities in the Georgetown Softball Cricket League (GSCL) 12/12 championship to this weekend.
Last year’s GT&T nationwide 10/10 softball champions, Regal XI, Speedboat, Memorex XI and Trophy Stall have all earned their places in the semifinals after dominating their respective groups. Playing out of Group B on the opening day last Saturday, Speedboat XI defeated Recharge XI and Farm XI and are scheduled to play Group C winners, Regal XI. That team has advanced after defeating Bartica Challengers and Cotton Field Wild Oats last Sunday.
The other semifinals affair will pit Group A winners, Memorex XI, who defeated Herstelling and Smith’s XI in their preliminary round encounters, against Trophy Stall. The latter team had topped Group D, with victories over Universal DVD Titans and Hillfoot Vipers.
Several worthwhile contenders are in the forefront for the Man-of-the-Series prize including Speedboat XI’s Greg Singh (126), the only batsman to register a century so far. Regal XI, Patrick Rooplall (*99) and Memorex’s Shimron Hetmyer (*82) are also in the frontline for the prize.
Spectators will also be a part of the action when they participate in a raffle which will be drawn on the final day of the tournament. A grand prize of one Daewoo double door refrigerator can be won by a lucky spectator who may purchase tickets for $100 each. Other prizes on offer are a three-piece living room suite, one 32″ LCD Sony Bravia television set, a Royal four-burner gas stove and a G-shock mountain bicycle. Proceeds from the raffle will be donated to charitable organizations.
Several corporate entities have teamed up towards the success of the tournament including Dilo Enterprise, DC Promotions, Five Star Minerals, El Dorado Trading and Ryan and Reuben Mahadeo (all out of Bartica). Those enterprises out of Georgetown are Star Party Rentals, Regal Stationery and Computer Supplies, Romain Car Wash, Bank of Baroda, Ravi Sarwan and Trophy Stall.
