Indian High Commissioner to Guyana, Dr. K. J Srinivasa told members of the recently formed Essequibo Eagles Cricket Club (ECCC) to focus on their education as part of their all-round development.
Dr. Srinivasa paid a visit to the club which is based at the Imam Bacchus Cricket ground Affiance, Essequibo Coast, on Sunday last. He told the youths that while they are looking to pursue a career in cricket, it is vital for them to have a back-up plan.
“Sometimes during the selection process things go haywire and players miss out on opportunities, so it is important for you to have something else to rely on,” he was quoted as saying.
He also encouraged the members to remain disciplined and strive to become good ambassadors of the sport while pledging assistance. Following a cultural presentation which was done by members of the club, the diplomat was accompanied by the manager of the club Rakesh Ramballi to various parts of the Coast.
Rakesh Ramballi expressed delight to host Dr. Srinivasa and said the youths were inspired by his remarks. The ECCC, which is an arm of the Mahadeo Foundation in collaboration with the Ramballi Family, was formed in December 2019 and has 31 members.
The Mahadeo Foundation which is based at Turkeyen, is a non-governmental organisation that renders assistance to young athletes and the needy across Guyana. Chairman of the Club Harrischan Ramballi told Kaieteur Sport that they decided to form the club in order to keep the youths meaningfully occupied and to give them the necessary exposure which can help in their development.
He informed that they would take part in cricket competitions and matches in and out of Essequibo while former Essequibo batsman Dinesh Joseph would conduct training sessions.
