The 10th edition of the Busta Champion of Champions 50 overs cricket tournament organised by the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC) is set to bowl off on Sunday February 16 following a lengthy delay due to the rainy season.
The tournament would involve Upper Corentyne, Rose Hall Town Gizmos & Gadgets, Albion, West Berbice, Universal DVD Young Warriors, Blairmont Community Centre, Karibee Rice Port Mourant and Universal Solution Bermine.
Secretary/CEO of the RHTY&SC Hilbert Foster issued an appeal to the eight teams to get themselves organised to play the opening round of matches and expressed the hope that the management of the Area ‘H’, Albion, Port Mourant and the Cumberland grounds would get their venues into top shape.
The semifinals would be played on February 22, while the date and the venue for the final would be announced later. The winner is set to pocket $100,000 and a trophy while the runner-up would take home $50,000. The final would be live on NCN Radio.
The organisers are informing all the clubs that only players registered with them for the 2013 season would be allowed to play and only one non-based Berbician is eligible to play for each team.
Clubs are also being reminded that no form of indiscipline would be tolerated and any club or player that shows dissent for umpiring decisions would be banned from further tournaments.
Umpires for the tournament would be provided and selected by the Berbice Umpires Association. Teams will be required to be at the venue 30 minutes before the scheduled 09:30hrs start for matches.
The fixture for the opening round of matches on February 16 follows:
RHT Gizmos & Gadgets vs Upper Corentyne – Area ‘H’
Albion Community Centre vs West Berbice – Albion
Universal DVD Young Warriors vs Blairmont – Cumberland
Karibee Rice Port Mourant vs Universal Solution Bermine – Port Mourant
