Kaieteur News – The plans by the pro-active Berbice Cricket Board to promote the game of cricket at the grassroot level would receive a major boost when four tournaments are played across the Lower Corentyne area. The tournaments would be played at the Kennard Memorial, Whim, Chesney and Fyrish Grounds and are been sponsored by former cricketers Mankarran Singh, Vishal Nagamootoo, Narsingh Deonarine and Hemnarine Chattergoon respectively.
At the Whim Ground, teams would be vying for the Nagamootoo brothers Challenge Cup. They are Whim, Tain Block Four, Belvedere United and Rose Hall Town Tigers. Vishal Nagamootoo is a former national wicketkeeper, while his elder brother Mahendra played test cricket for the West Indies.
Former RHTYSC and Port Mourant player Mankarran Singh is the sponsor of the Karran and Son tournament which would be played at the Kennard Memorial Ground. Kildonan, Ramnarine Memorial, Kennard Memorial and No43 are the teams that would participate.
Former West Indies middle order batsman Narsingh Deonarine is the sponsor of the Deonarine Cup that would see Chesney, Jai Hind, Albion Open and Sandreef Tigers playing at the Chesney Ground.
Over at the Fyrish Ground, former West Indies under19 player Hemnarine Chattergoon is the sponsor of the Chattergoon Brother Challenge Cup. Home team Fyrish, Kilcoy, Courtland and Nigg Intruders are the teams involved.
Foster at a special meeting with the sixteen teams stated the BCB was investing heavily into grassroot cricket in an effort to renew the passion for the game after the one year break due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. He warned them that no form of indiscipline would be tolerated and urged them to invest in youth development. One of the main objectives of the tournaments is to allow other clubs apart from power houses Albion and RHTYSC, MS to win a Berbice Cricket Board Title.
Clubs are reminded that all players shall have to be attired in white and teams are expected to report at the venues, half hour before game time. Players are also asked to walk along with their own drinking water, while face masks are compulsory off the cricket field. Social Distancing would also be in place, no spectators would be allowed into the venues, while the drinking of alcohol would not be allowed as well.
Presentation of prizes would be done immediately after the completion of the tournaments by representatives of the BCB and sponsors.
