The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) has registered its deepest condolences following the death of one of its former treasurers, Mr. Roopnarine Dhanray who passed away in Queens, New York City last week Sunday.
Mr. Dhanraj who was the younger brother of the stalwart Berbice, Guyana and West Indies cricketer Leonard Baichan, served as treasurer in 1973 and 1974. He will always be remembered for the role he played alongside the then BCB President Lennox Phillips, Vice Presidents Leslie Amsterdam, J. Maurice Haniff and Ancel Hazel, Secretary Victor Omrow and Assistant Secretary Mortimer George, as the livewire behind the Board successfully hosting the Pakistan International Airway Cricket Team in Berbice in 1973 and the hosting of the Tony Greig led M.C.C. team against a Guyana second eleven team in a two-day match in Berbice in 1974.
These two events are two of the many highlights of the history of Berbice cricket. Born in 1947, Mr. Dhanraj was also a very keen first division cricketer who represented both Bermine and the Mental Hospital before migrating to the USA. He was cremated last week Thursday in New York. The BCB sends its sympathy on his passing to his immediate family and friends, reminding that he had made his mark in the annals of Berbice cricket.
