More support for “Cricket Gears For Young And Promising Cricketers In Guyana” Project
A friend of Guyana Cricket (name withheld) is the latest donor to project “Cricket Gear for Young and Promising Cricketers in Guyana”. He is a friend of one of the partners in this initiative, Kishan Das of the USA. The other partner is former Berbice Cricket Board long serving Executive and recently appointed Guyana Cricket Board Technocrat.
Their aim is to provide cricket gear for young and talented cricketers in Guyana who need assistance. The project, which was recently launched, is seeking new and used cricket gear which will then be distributed free of cost to the targeted cricketers.
Option Group, West Indian Sports Complex and P&P Insurance Brokers are the other companies on board so far.
Three pairs of batting pads, one helmet, one pair of batting gloves and one cricket bag have already been received as donations. Total gear collected so far is ten pairs of batting pads, nine bats, four pairs of batting gloves, and two cricket bags.
The donor said the initiative is a timely one, and he would surely help to unearth more talent in Guyana, especially in the non-traditional areas.
Talent spotting will be done across Guyana, along with guidance from club leaders to identify the players. Players must be attending school and be disciplined Players above school age will also be considered.
Gratitude is so far being given to Imran and Javed Khan of West Indian Sports Complex, Option Group, Bish Panday of P&P Insurance Brokers, a Friend of Guyana Cricket, and spinner Sean Devers who is now a journalist and the former Senior Berbice player who also represented Guyana at the junior level.
