DCB/SVC/Precision Service Centre Inter-Association T20 Blast commencing soon
The Demerara Cricket Board-Sawh Voltcom Construction Inc (SVC)-Precision Service Centre Inc Inter-Association Senior T20 Blast is set to commence on Saturday, December 9, 2023, with two first-round matches fixed for the famous Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) Ground, Bourda.
SVC was established in the USA several years ago and has brought its enormous experience to Guyana in the field of construction (residential, commercial and medical).
Precision Service Centre Inc is located at Lot Y, Area B Good Hope Public Road, East Coast Demerara. The Service Centre provides quality and modern technology in auto repairs and is equipped with the latest diagnostics tools. The company also provides 24-hour tow truck services, steam cleaning, complete servicing, engine and transmission repairs. Contact can be made by telephone numbers 506-5632/701-6530 or email [email protected].
The $2 million tournament will be played on a round-robin basis and will involve all five Associations of the Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) – Georgetown Panthers, East Coast Canje Pheasants, East Bank Eagles, Upper Demerara Scorpions and West Demerara Jaguars. The team with the most points after the preliminary rounds will play the fourth-placed team, and the second- and third-placed teams will clash in the semi-finals, with the winners battling in the grand final. Preceding the final is a third-place play-off between the two losing semi-finalists. The semi-finals and final day event will be livestreamed. All the teams will be attired in coloured clothing, with cash incentives, trophies, and medals up for grabs.
Each Association is required to select two Under-19 players who are eligible to represent Guyana next year in the Regional Under-19 tournaments, with at least one of them to play in every game. Players must represent the area they reside in, with the exception of Upper Demerara which will be allowed guest players drawn from the standby players of the other Associations.
At a simple but significant pre-tournament ceremony held recently, company accountant Marissa Jaikaran expressed excitement and pleasure to be part of this historic tournament. She also said that her company was pleased to give back to the youths in Guyana and wished every team well. In response, DCB President Bissoondyal Singh thanked the sponsors for coming on board and promised a well-run tournament with the best possible media coverage. Board Executives Vicky Bharosay, Treasurer Davteerth Anandjit, Secretary Anil Beharry, and the Marketing Manager and representatives of the Associations also made brief remarks. The teams will be announced at a later date.
Game one kicks off at 09:00h followed by game two at 13:00h next Saturday at the GCC Ground, Bourda. Large turnouts are anticipated at all the venues.
