First Harpy Eagles practice match starts Saturday
The first and much-needed Four-Day practice match for the Guyana Harpy Eagles that was slated to start on January 12 has been rescheduled to January 14 at the National Stadium, Providence.
The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) informed the shift in dates which is a result of the inclement weather and the second match will commence on January 19.
The match time is 09:30h daily.
These matches will prove extremely vital to selectors and the team’s management given the slots to fill due to the absence of several key players for the first round of the Regional Four-Day Championship that starts February 1.
Guyana will face defending champions, Barbados Pride in Antigua.
Veerasammy Permaul XI: Veerasammy Permaul (captain), Mathew Nandu, Tevin Imlach, Kevlon Anderson, Akshaya Persaud, Rampertab Ramnauth, Shamar Yearwood, Junior Sinclair, Ashmead Nedd, Ronsford Beaton, Isai Thorne, Nial Smith, Richie Looknauth, Garfield Benjamin
Tagenarine Chanderpaul XI: Tagenarine Chanderpaul (captain), Kemol Savory, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Mavindra Dindyal, Anthony Bramble, Kevin Sinclair, Alvin Mohabir, Gudakesh Motie, Antony Adams, Shamar Joseph, Sylus Tyndall, Demetri Cameron, Jonathan Rampersaud, Zynul Ramsammy
After the first match, Guyana will travel to Grenada to engage Windward Island Volcanoes from February 8- 11 at the National Stadium.
The tournament will then have a break and resume on March 15 and run until April 1 for the final three rounds, which will be played in Trinidad and Tobago.
That will be followed by a new domestic red-ball tri-series, the Headley-Weekes series, which will feature three four-day matches and will be played from April 18 to 6 May at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
