GCB/IGLOO U-15…Defending champs face Essequibo from today

Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - With one eye on the weather, defending champions Demerara will be journeying to the Enmore Community Centre ground, where they will face perennial whipping boys Essequibo, in the second round of the Guyana Cricket Board-organised Igloo Ice-cream-sponsored Under-15 Inter-county tournament over the next two days.

Across at the Wales Community Centre ground, Berbice will clash with the President’s XI in what should be an interesting encounter.

Skipper Bhaskar Yadram, first-round centurion Joshua Persaud, Alphius Bookie, Ashmead Nedd, Sagar Hetheramani and Colin Barlow will lead the defending champions who accumulated 10 points from their abandoned first-round encounter against the President’s XI.

The hard-hitting Joshua Jones, Darshan Indar, Shane Wong, Orlando Jailall, Arnold Adams, Vishal Singh and Shamar Dasrath will guide the Cinderella County lineup, who will definitely be looking for an improved performance this time around.

At Wales, Berbice, who are always a force to be reckoned with on the local scene, will look to Kevin and Junior Sinclair (unrelated), Steven Kalamudin, Junior Williams, Kris Ramnarine and Steven Deonarine to pilot them to victory.

However, the President’s XI is a team that comprises players who were unable to make their individual County lineup, hence they are hungry to showcase their talent and at the same time, impress the selectors.

Players such as Christopher Campbelle, Junior Phillips, Danesh Kowlessar, Stephon Williams, Shivnarine Chattergoon and Chandrat Veerasammy, are all part of the President’s XI, who can very well rebound from the poor showing against Demerara and upset the Berbicians.

The action gets under way at 10:00hrs each day at both venues.
