Meanwhile, Tiger Sports of Old Road, Enmore, East Coast Demerara, on Saturday outfitted the Media XI with jerseys to compete in today’s encounter. The jerseys, were generously donated to the Media boys by Managing Director Sheik Mohamed, who is a former national cricketer.
Mohamed’s son, Fawaz, also a former national cricketer, presented the shirts to captain John Ramsingh during a simple ceremony at Malteenoes Sports Club on Saturday. Ramsingh said his boys were very grateful for the kind gesture of Tiger Sports, and will look to represent the company’s image to the best of their abilities.
Also present at the simple ceremony were former captain Calvin Roberts, fast bowling all-rounder Zaheer Mohamed and middle-order batsman Avenash Ramzan.
