The action is slated for Saturday, May 21st at Keele Top, North York, Toronto, and ten teams are set to vie for the trophy and Cdn $2,500.
Anil Ablacksingh, captain of the Young Warriors team, has said his boys are ready to rumble, and at the same time want to dominate the proceedings.
Devo Ramsawak, captain of the Pegasus team, and Romel Harripersaud, his Phoenix counterpart, are also confident participants in this tournament, and are relying heavily on their players in every department to make an impact, while Rafel Boodhu, who is leading Vikings X1, can hardly wait to cart off the top prizes.
“We just going there and play competitive cricket. I think we have a good team to come out on top,” Ablacksingh has said. Quizzed on the team’s composition, Ablacksingh responded: “I think the side is well-balanced and (is) just about positive cricket. We are practising hard, and I am confident of doing well at the tournament.”
Ramsawack has indicated that every player is supremely confident of winning the day’s event, and he is anticipating quality cricket from his troops.
“We have to play our best brand of cricket. Competition will be stiff, as I saw in previous tournaments, but Pegasus have a team that is committed to play good and impressive cricket,” Ramsawack has asserted.
Like Ablcaksingh and Ramsawak, Romel Harripersaud is predicting competitive cricket when he leads his team, Pheonix, at the softball extravaganza.
“It should be competitive, because lots of top softball players will be out there representing different teams, and (they) want to be on the winning side. But we have got a talented side, and our confidence is high, which I think is very important,” Harripersaud has declared.
He revealed that he has some round-arm specialist players at his disposal, and that has inevitably boosted the team’s confidence enormously. He commented that he can, as well, bank on their experience to come to the fore at the one-day showpiece.
Boodhu believes Vikings X1 would be the champion team at the completion of the day’s activities. “Definitely! We [are] confident of beating any team out there, we just have to play hard and determined cricket. I know defending champions Assassins and Brampton Gladiators will come to dominate things, but we are equipped for any challenge,” Boodhu disclosed.
He took the opportunity to thank their sponsors: Annie Rupchand of Law Firm Incorporation and Kishan Fiedtkou of PRO Rail Firm Incorporation as well.
Meanwhile, tournament organiser Damodar Daesrath has informed that everything is in place for the event, and this is a manifestation of his positivity to stage another successful softball tournament.
The tournament will be played in memory of Johnny Bujan for the second year in succession. Bujan had been a Canada cricket manager on multiple occasions while he had also been a co-owner of the reputable Brampton Masters hard-ball club.
Daesrath has also expressed his gratitude to the two main sponsors, and they are: ALARM TECHZ and KP Employment Solutions Inc. Notably, the first ball bowls off at 09:30 am.
