Option Group joins Beharry and Das Cricket Gear Project
Option Group of the USA has joined hands with Guyana Cricket Board’s Technocrat member Anil Beharry and US-based Guyanese Kishan Das in their drive to provide gear to young and talented cricketers in Guyana who need assistance.
The project, which was conceptualised recently, seeks new and used cricket gear, which will be distributed free of cost to cricketers. Option Group now joins West Indian Sports Complex, who only recently ‘bowled off’ the project.
Three pairs of batting pads, three pairs of batting gloves, three bats and one cricket bag with wheels were donated. Total gear collected so far- seven pairs of batting pads, seven bats, three batting gloves and one cricket bag.
Talent spotting will be done across Guyana along with guidance from club leaders to identify the players. Players must be in school and discipline. Players above school age will also be considered.
Beharry and Das have expressed gratitude to Imran and Javed Khan of West Indian Sports Complex, Option Group and Senior Journalist and former national and senior Berbice off spinner, Sean Devers, for their support of the project.
Persons interested in contributing to the project can contact Anil Beharry on 623-6875 or Kishan Das on +1-718-664-0896.
