Beharry confirms he will play for Berbice Masters
As the Unity Cricket train gathers steam, it is moving towards its Providence Stadium destination January 30 with the Essequibo softball team coming on board, making the softball competition a truly National event.
The day of fun and frolic for the entire family includes a fun park for children being organized by Legacy and 007 Promotions’ who have collaborated with corporate sponsors and received support from the Guyana Cricket Board and Guyana Floodlights Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA).
Vice-President of the (GFSCA) Ricky Deonarine told Sean Devers, the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of what promises to a high intensity event in front an anticipated capacity crowd, that Essequibo had confirmed their participation in the Open 10/10 category which also includes Karibee Boyz from Berbice and city sides Wolf Warriors and Regal.
Deonarine said that the entire Demerara team would be made of Wolf Warriors and Regal players and some very good players would have been left out.
“These two teams are the best in Guyana so in realty these are Demerara ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams and are both good enough to beat the combined Essequibo team and the team from Berbice and we expect that at least one of them will qualify for the final,” Deonarine added.
The final will be played under lights just before the feature event, a t20 contest involving some of the best t20 players in the Caribbean commences at 19:30hrs.
The winner of the softball ‘open’ final will battle for $500,000 and a trophy in the five-match softball event.
Demerara will face-off with Karibee girls from Berbice in a female game, while Berbice Masters will take-on Demerara Masters and Anil Beharry, who is now residing in the City, has confirmed that while he lives in Demerara he will play for Berbice Masters on January 30.
Beharry is the President of the Berbice Cricket Board and has represented Berbice in senior Inter-County hardball 50-over cricket as a big hitting left-hander and left-arm spinner.
“Of course I will be playing for my home county and I encourage all Berbicians to come out in your numbers and support the Berbice softball teams and the Berbicians in the t20 match,” stated Beharry.
