Rain forces postponement of Big Man Cricket final
Persistent rainfall on Sunday forced the postponement of the Big Man Cricket Banks Beer/Maximum Vodka 25-over final at the Georgetown Cricket Club, Bourda.
The organisers have opted to move the championship game to another date, with West Bank Warriors and Essequibo Eagles set to battle for top honours.
At stake will be G$500,000 and other incentives.
