President of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), Drubahadur was on hand to welcome the victorious national U-15 team in the wee hours of yesterday morning at the Cheddi Jagan International airport.
The President proudly congratulated the players on their outstanding performances in Jamaica. He stated that at such a tender age they have demonstrated true professionalism, bravery and resilience by overcoming several hurdles and challenges on tour in Jamaica. A major challenge for the players last weekend and, more especially, Sagar Hatheramani was when he learnt of the unfortunate passing of his mother. The President and Executive of GCB wish to extend its heartfelt sympathies to this young cricketer, his family, relatives and friends at this time of bereavement and urge him to use this solemn occasion to motivate himself to rigorously pursue his chosen professional career path in cricket and make his mom proud of this and his future achievements.
President Drubahadur noted that the Executive and members of GCB are especially pleased with the team’s overall effort since the Board had placed a lot of investment into their encampment and general preparation for the tournament.
Chairman of the Competitions Committee, Colin Europe, who accompanied the President, pointed out that after 16 years Guyana has won the U-15 tournament. He said such an achievement will go down in the history books and worthy of widespread acclamation. He lauded the team and urged the players to continue working hard and aim higher as they pursue their individual careers in cricket.
Manager of the team Andy Ramnarine expressed gratitude to the President and Europe for recognizing the importance of their achievement. He pointed out that Guyana’s success was mainly due to the players competing as a team, and even those who did not make the final 11 shared in every sadness and happiness of the touring squad.
He said that the players are ecstatic about the victory and are overwhelmed about the accolades. The Guyanese won four out of their five matches in the Tournament. Kevin Sinclair was the Best Bowler with 11 wickets, and Joshua Persaud was Guyana’s highest run scorer and the fifth of the Tournament. Guyana received the Most Disciplined Team award.
