With the time fast approaching for the Legacy and 007 Promotions Unity Cricket at the Providence
Stadium on January 30, Demerara has named their softball teams to participate.
Five softball matches will be played with the ‘Open’ 10/10 Final set to be played under lights before the main event which features the top T20 players in the West Indies commences at 19:30hrs.
Karibee Boyz Berbice, Essequibo and two teams from Demerara (Regal and Wolf Warriors) are the teams vying for the $500,000 first prize and a trophy. The masters 15/15 game between Demerara and Berbice carries a winner’s prize of $200,000 while the winner of the 10/10 female game between Berbice and Demerara will collect $150,000.
Demerara will fancy their chances in the female game since three of Berbice’s top players Tremayne Smartt, Shamaine Campbell and Erva Giddings would be unavailable due to West Indies female team commitments.
Richard Persaud will lead the Demerara Masters team which will include Wayne Jones and former Guyana First-Class batsman David Harper while the Demerara lasses will be captained by National female player Latoya Smith and will Kavita Yadram and Haseena Mohamed who have both represented Guyana at the Regional level.
