Kaieteur Sports – In preparation for the upcoming Regional Super50 tournament, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) will bowl off the Senior Inter- County Super50 tournament, starting on Saturday September 30 at Blairmont Ground.
Several Guyana/West Indies marquee players will be on show as they seek to solidify spots in the Guyana Harpy Eagles team, as Guyana is on a mission for a clean sweep of Regional Senior Male Tournaments, having won the West Indies Championship 4-Day tournament in April and the just concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL) title, won by the Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Some of those Warriors who will suit up for their respective counties include Shimron Hetmyer, Gudakesh Motie, Romario Shepherd, Kevlon Anderson, Shamar Joseph, Kevin Sinclar, Ronsford Beaton, and Chandrapaul Hemraj to name a few, will represent their respective counties. The electric Junior Sinclair has been appointed captain of the GCB Select XI while Christopher Barnwell will serve as his deputy where he is expected to give guidance and support to young Sinclair and co.
Saturday’s opening round will see longtime rivals Demerara and Berbice getting action underway. Berbice will be led by leading wicket-taker in the Caribbean, Veerasammy Permaul who will have West Indies all-rounder Shepherd as his deputy.
A strong Berbice county team will also rely on the talents of the Sinclair, Anderson, Joseph, Hetmyer, Johnathan Foo, Nial Smith, Clinton Pestano, Rampertab Ramnauth and Anthony Bramble.
Led by Tevin Imlach, Demerara will bank on the services of; current Test opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul while former West Indies players Sherfane Rutherford and Chandrapaul Hemraj, will help shepherd a young core; featuring Guyana’s future stars in Matthew Nandu, Mavendra Dindyal, Akshaya Persaud, Qumar Torrington and others.
Following Saturday’s opening match, the second match of round 1 will continue on October 1st with more intense cricket action as last year’s runner-up Essequibo takes on the GCB Select XI at GCC, Bourda. Round 2 will be played on Tuesday, October 3 with Berbice facing GCB Select XI at Enmore while Demerara battles Essequibo at GCC. On Thursday, Berbice face Essequibo at GCC in a rematch of last year’s final while Demerara comes up against GCB Select XI at Enmore. The final will be played at GCC on Saturday, October 7.
