By Sean Devers
GYO will play MSC at Everest and DCC hosts GINC from tomorrow in the opening round of the
Georgetown Cricket Association’s (GCA) two-day first division competition which was launched yesterday at the Malteenoes Pavilion and Co-sponsored by General Industrial & Supplies Enterprise (GISE), Star Party Rentals and Trophy Stall.
Chairman of the Competitions Committee Shawn Massiah provided a brief overview of the 10-team tournament which will see University of Guyana (UG) making their first division two-day debut.
Massiah said that this competition should encourage batsmen to bat for long periods as opposed the shorter but more popular formats in which a few big hits are the ideal ingredient to win matches.
Massiah, who also Captains the Transport Sports Club (TSC) said batting and bowling points will be award with a maximum of 10 points to teams for making 350 and bowling out the opposition.
It was disclosed that fast bowlers must bowl 25% of the overs in a completed innings while the regulation of the GCA’s competition allows for runners being used by injured batsmen.
While there were no representatives of Star Party Rentals and Trophy Stall, Miss Verleen VanLange speaking on behalf of GISE, said that the team must all play to win in cricket.
“That spirit extends to the spectators, officials, staff, sponsors and other partners. It is in that spirit that General Industrial & Suppliers Enterprises is pleased to be a Co-sponsor of this First Division competition,” VanLange said.
“We understand the role that is played as a sponsor in supporting the development of cricket for those who play for fun, for those who enjoy watching it and for those who may one day be selected to represent their Country and Region,” VanLange added.
President of the GCA, former West Indies Vice-Captain Roger Harper said a very critical part of cricket is the two-day format which develops aspects of the game than the shorter version don’t.
“The sponsors would want to sit back some day and say this person, who is now playing for the West Indies came out of our competition in 2015,” Harper said.
The GCA Boss explained that a player of any gender is eligible to participate in this competition adding that a final will be held and the winning team will collect $100,000, while the Runner-up receives $50,000 with incentives for several individual performances are up for grabs.
