Following the tremendous success in its inaugural year in 2013, Raj Singh Insurance Brokers has decided to renew its sponsorship through the Demerara Cricket Board once again in 2016.
This competition will be played between eight teams drawn from East Coast Demerara, West Coast Demerara, Georgetown and East Bank Demerara. Each area will field two teams similar to the 2013 version of the competition and is intended to get more of our retired players active and involved in the development of our youths and the game of cricket.
Once again, each team will play each other in the preliminary rounds for a total of 28 matches to be played every Friday afternoon commencing from February 26, 2016. The top four teams will qualify for the semis with the winners of the semis contesting the finals.
Teams can earn bonus points for winning their games by large margins of runs or for very few wickets. Other exciting rules mandate that each team must bowl a minimum of seven bowlers with no bowler delivering more than three overs per game. These games will not have the usual T20 fielding restrictions but standard cricket rules and conditions will apply.
The teams are East Coast Tigers, East Coast Bulls, Georgetown Bears, Georgetown Buffaloes, West Demerara Mavericks, West Demerara Seals, East Bank Lions, and East Bank Colts.
