The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) has acquired three John Deer motorized lawn mowers
to assist in the development and maintenance of pitch squares and grounds in a number of area Associations.
This aspect of development is perceived as critical in the GCB’s lateral cricket development structure, which encompasses the human resource empowerment (players, coaches, tutors, scorers, umpires match referees and other cricket personnel), facility development (club structures, nets, pitches and grounds) and the meaningful interaction processes between the two – human resource personnel of established facilities.
The GCB had conducted a countrywide ground assessment and analysis, and found the upkeep of grounds to a highly suitable standard was a major challenge to ground authorities; one of the main reasons being the inaccessibility of appropriate equipment.
It has also been observed over the years, needed regular maintenance of a number of facilities and grounds posed a constant challenge, especially during the period when sponsorship was not readily available as compared to the past when West Indies dominated world cricket.
The lawn mowers are expected to add value to both the visible appearance of pitches and outfields in the area associations.
A release from the GCB stated that it remains committed to overall development of cricket in Guyana and continues to seek new measures in assisting its affiliates to promote the game at the highest of standards.
