The winning team will receive the Balram Shane Memorial trophy and over $100,000 and other incentives, while the losing team will be also adequately rewarded. A number of individual awards will be up for grabs including the man of the match, best bowler and best batsman. Albion is the defending champion.
Meanwhile, the seventh edition of the volleyball competition, which is being organised by the Berbice Volleyball Association (BVA) and will be played simultaneously on the hard court, will see the best volleyball teams in the county battling for supremacy. Port Mourant Training Center (PMTC) is the defending champion.
The top teams and outstanding individual players will be presented with trophies and cash incentives by the sponsor and his family, who will be on hand to bowl the first ball and do the first serve in the volleyball competition.
The day’s competitions are being played in memory of Deonarine Balram’s father, Balram Shane who was a former cricketer, community activists and sports enthusiast. According to him, it is something his father would have loved and one of the many ways in which the family is giving back in a tangible way to the community from which they garner their support.
