The Tamarind Root Cricket Ground located in the quiet Corentyne Rural Village of Hampshire, will host its third final this year when the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) host the Rhonda Lewis Memorial T20 Tournament, tomorrow.
The Tournament is being sponsored by overseas based Berbician, Lindon Lewis in memory of his eldest daughter, Rhonda, who died of Cancer over one decade ago. Rose Hall Town Bakewell and Fyrish would clash in the remaining semifinal at 09.30 hrs, with the winner going through to play Whim National in the final from 13:30hrs.
This final would be the 12th to be hosted by the BCB over the last three months as the entity strives to complete 22 tournaments for 2018 at all levels. The next final would be held on Sunday when Blairmont and Cotton Tree clash in the West Berbice Magic Moments Tournament.
Rose Hall Town Bakewell, Berbice’ most dominant Second Division Team would be held by Kevin Sinclair with support from Vidal Crandon, Junior Sinclair, Surendra Kissoonlall, Kevlon Anderson, Keith Simpson and Chanderpaul Govindan in a strong batting lineup.
Former National U-19 pacer Sylus Tyndall and West Indies female fast bowler Erva Giddings lead a powerful bowling attack that includes another medium pacer Kevlon Anderson. Offspinners Kevin and Junior Sinclair, National U-15 allrounder Jonathan Rampersaud and left arm spinner Keith Simpson complete a strong bowling attack, capable of defending any total on the scoreboard.
Fyrish would depend heavily on former Guyana U-19 Javed Mohamed, Yogindra Chinapen, Anarine Shrikissoon, Yohana Goordial, Akenen Rangasami, Saif Bacchus, Imran Ally and Reeaz Ramcharran.
The last time, the two teams clashed was in the final of the Lower Corentyne Magic Moments T20 tournament, last month, Fyrish was crushed by a 100 plus margin. Whim National, playing in their first BCB final for over 20-years, has surprised cricket pundits with their strong team showing at various tournaments this year.
They have defeated two strong teams, Albion and Chesney in booking their place in the final and would be spearheaded by Vinod Samaroo, Joshua Persaud, Yogindra Sooknanan, Tameshwar Harrinarine, Devendra Balkarran and Mahendra Charran.
The winner, runner-up and man-of-the-final would receive trophies and monetary prizes. BCB President Hilbert Foster and sponsor Lindon Lewis participate in the presentation ceremony.
