COVID-19 concerns force postponement of Big Man Cricket
The Big Man Cricket tournament has been postponed until further notice, as the organisers are concerned about the rising number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Guyana.
“The Big Man Cricket (BMC) Committee has made a conscious decision to postpone the continuation of our Banks Beer/Maximum Vodka BMC T25 Tournament until further notice due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases and deaths,” the Committee said in a release.
“BMC would like to urge all Guyanese to adhere strictly to the published protocols of the National COVID-19 Task Force and the Ministry of Health. Further, we urge persons to secure their vaccinations at the earliest opportunity. This combination will surely assist us all to eliminate this deadly virus in the quickest possible time.”
Guyana’s COVID-19 death toll reached 250 on Wednesday with the passing of a 57-year-old woman from Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica). There are currently over 10,600 cases.
BMC added that given the current unpredictable weather, the Committee “will continue to assess this situation in tandem and announce the restart of this competition at the earliest opportunity.”
At the end of the last round of play, Jai Hind Jaguars lead the points table.
