Heavy and persistent early morning showers have forced organisers of the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Incorporated (GSCL) second 12/12 championships to call off the first two days of the event.
The tournament was slated to start on Saturday and continue today at the Everest Cricket Club ground, Camp Road, but with pools of water on the ground, the organisers were left with no choice but to bowl off this weekend, weather permittting.
At stake in the tournament, the second of its kind following the formation of the GSCL Inc. since May, is a first place prize of $600,000 and a trophy, with the runner-up will collect $200,000 and a trophy.
The Man-of-the-Series will receive one three-piece living room suite, the best batsman and bowler will each walk away with $5,000 and a trophy and the Man-of-the-Match in the final $10,000 and a trophy.
Deputy Permanent Secretary within the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, Steve Ninvalle, is expected to give some brief remarks and later declare the tournament.
