– Permaul Trading of Albion is main sponsor
The Jai Hind Cricket Club of Albion, Corentyne, Berbice has received cash sponsorship for its inaugural Mash Cup Masters T20 cricket tournament to be played on February 23, 2021.
The tournament would involve four Masters teams; namely: the host, Jai Hind Jaguars; West Berbice Masters; West Demerara Masters, and Strathavon Masters,
competing for a first prize of $100,000, or runner-up prize of $25,000, along with trophies for the winner, runner-up team, and man of the match in the finals, all sponsored by Permaul Trading of Albion, Corentyne.
Proceeds from the event would go towards further development of the venue. Government recently handed over floodlights for the ground, and funds to assist in construction of the fences.
At a simple ceremony held recently, Albert Khan and former Berbice Cricket Board executive member Romash Munna, who is home on vacation, handed over the cash sponsorship. Both Khan and Munna said they are very pleased with the work of the Cricket Club, which has transformed the venue into one of the best in Berbice. The donors urged the club to invest in the development of youth cricket, which would be used as a feeder for Berbice Cricket. They both promised continued support as it becomes necessary.
In response, Rajin Moosammy, Captain of the Jai Hind Cricket Club, thanked the sponsors for coming on board without hesitation, and promised to make the tournament an annual one. He also mentioned that it would be well organized, and mileage would be given to all the sponsors.
