GCB County LO Tomorrow
WITH the aim of giving the players adequate preparation time for the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) Regional four-day and Super50 tournaments which bowl off next month, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) will bowl off its senior Inter-county 50-over competition tomorrow with games at Everest and Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) grounds respectively.
The Inter-county four-day competition will immediately follow at the venues to be announced and all county boards are reminded that only players participating in these competitions or those on national duties will be eligible for selection to the national squad to participate in the WICB regional one-day and four-day competitions.
County Boards and team management are advised that all players from the Essequibo and Berbice Cricket Boards are asked to assemble at the Chetram Singh Centre of Excellence by 18:00hrs today.
