Eccles All-Stars first team book semi-final spot in Kares T10


Eccles All-Stars is the first team to secure a spot in the final four of the Kares One Guyana T10  after defeating Movements Family (Mahdia) on Sunday at the Everest Cricket Club.

Eccles is being dubbed the ‘giant-killers’ as they knocked out the formidable ‘The Guards’ and brushed aside the renowned Mahdia to secure their spot.

Mahdia only posted 87-6 from their allotment of 10 ten overs, with a top score of 22 from a fortuitous Ricardo Adams.

Eccles reached their target in 8.1 overs, with six wickets in the hut, led by Quazim Yusuf with a blazing 33 off nine balls and Anthony Antonio 27 from eight balls.

Earlier, the Guards recovered from a shaky start to post 110-6, and Eccles won the tense contest with four wickets and two balls to spare after Antonio smashed 42* from 18 balls.

 Village Rams have looked another dominant side

Also victorious on Sunday was Village Rams, who hammered Housing and Water One Guyana by 81 runs; V-Net Vipers surged to a massive win over Diamond Gunners, while Mahdia reached the Super 8 stage due to a walkover from Big B’s Blairmont Blazers.

Tarmac Titans, Team Corruption, The United Crew, and Avinash All-Stars are the other remaining teams in hot pursuit for the title and first prize of $1M on August 12 at the National Stadium, Providence.

Inclement weather on Saturday meant the intended two-day extravaganza could not be completed in the scheduled period.

With support from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, the finals are shifted to August 12, under lights, at the National Stadium, Providence.

Initially, at the end of Saturday, there were to be four teams remaining but the weather meant not all of the Super 16 and the Super 8 matches were completed and had to be played on Sunday.

Currently, three more Super 8 matches are still slated to be contested, and the organizers will soon confirm a venue and time.

When those matches are completed, it means just four teams remain.

Teams expressed great delight at the opportunity to play at the facility, noting that it is historic for them.

Additionally, the charity match will be back in full swing.

The first-ever champions will pocket G$1M, while the losing finalist will collect G$300,000.

The two losing semi-finalists will walk away with G$100,000 each. There will also be prizes for outstanding individual performances.

The Most Valuable Player of the series will get a motorbike valuable over G$250,000, compliments of Assuria Insurance.

The Corporate Village organised to promote brand awareness has been postponed to August 12. Some of the companies Avinash Contracting and Scrap Metal Inc., Guyana Tourism Authority, ANSA Motors Guyana, Continental Transport Inc., Gafoors, and Premier Insurance are just some companies that are still set to be on show.

V-Net Vipers also had a strong performance

The Kares One Guyana T10 Tapeball Tournament organizers would like to thank their sponsors who have made the tournament possible.
