EBSC congratulates its GCB 2016 awardees
The Enterprise Busta Sports Club (EBSC) has extended congratulations to two of its members, who excelled at the Guyana Cricket Board’s (GCB) annual awards ceremony on Thursday evening at the Umana Yana.
National youth cricketer Bhaskar Yadram was named Junior Cricketer-of-the-Year and received the Roy Fredericks Trophy. The 17-year-old also copped awards for Most Valuable Player in the Regional Under-19; Most Runs in the Regional Under-19; and Most Wickets in the Regional Under-17, an accolade he shared with Kevin Sinclair.
During 2016, Yadram was outstanding for Guyana in Regional youth cricket and continued that form at the senior level, hitting 547 runs for the East Coast Demerara franchise in the inaugural Jaguars Franchise League Three-day tournament.
His aggregate was the fifth most in the competition, and he created history along the way, becoming the first, and only player to date, to score two centuries (118 and 121 against Essequibo) in the same match. Yadram also collected medals for being part of the Guyana Under-17 and Under-19 teams.
He was subsequently drafted into Cricket Guy Inc. Academy set-up and was one of two Guyanese in the West Indies Under-19 training camp in Grenada last week.
The other EBSC member whose efforts were recognised in 2016 was Chanderpaul Singh, who is the head curator at the club. He received a plaque for his outstanding contribution to the sport as a curator.
The club, in a statement on Saturday, expressed how elated the members and executives were of the duo’s achievements. The EBSC said it is indeed proud to have provided an avenue for both Yadram and Singh to improve on their skills.
The club wished both awardees continued success in 2017, and advised them to never give up on their dreams to be the best at what they do.
