The Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) in partnership with the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph (GT&T) will bowl off its 35-over knockout cricket competition today with one game at the Enmore Community Centre ground.
The tournament was originally slated to commence last Sunday, but had to be pushed back by a week, due to heavy rainfall which erased any chance of play getting underway.
Hosts ECCCC will take on Mahaica in the opening match with action set to bowl off at noon.
Six other teams are part of the competition, with the four winners from the first round advancing to the semi-finals.
The other games of the first round are Fairfield versus Duch Four, Cane Grove versus Helena and Perseverance versus Strathavon. These matches will be played during the coming weekends.
The competition, which is being organised by the ECCCC, is aimed at giving clubs from Enmore to Mahaica much needed competitive exposure.
The champion team will receive $30,000 and trophy, with the runner-up set to collect $20,000 and a trophy. Among the individual awards are trophies for the Man-of-the-Match in the final, most runs, most wickets and most catches.
The ECCCC squad reads: Bheemraj Ramkellawan (captain), Shiek Mohamed, Chetram Ramlall, Vishwanauth Ramlakhan, Mark Malone, Ranjeet Hiralall, Satesh Jainarine, M. Persaud, N. Persaud, N. Ganesh, D. Peters, N. Gobin, Javed Mohamed and S. Ali.
