Inclement weather forces postponement of GCB U-19 tournament
The Guyana Cricket Board’s inaugural Under-19, 50-over franchise tournament has been postponed until further notice.
“The postponement is due to the current inclement weather, which is expected to severely affect the players’ opportunity to showcase their talents. The GCB remains committed to completing the tournament as soon as the weather conditions consistently become more suitable for play,” the Board said in a press statement.
“All individuals who were expected to play the respective roles in the effective conduct of the remaining matches are hereby accordingly informed of this postponement.”
The tournament, which is being held in partnership with General Marine, Tropical Spring, 4R Bearings and Trophy Stall, started last weekend at the National Stadium, Providence, but both matches were severely affected by rain.
The tournament includes three teams- Falcons, Eagles and Amazon Hawks- which are being captained by Matthew Nandu, Zeynul Ramsammy and Marvan Prasad respectively.
As a result of the rescheduled first round match between Falcons and Eagles, Eagles’ second round win over Amazon Hawks, places them at the top of the points table with eight points.
In the meanwhile, Amazon Hawks sit quietly in the trees in the cellar position, awaiting their second and final round match against the Falcons.
Those rescheduled matches were slated to be held this weekend.
