West Indies to battle with Sri Lanka in the first match of the upcoming Tri-Series – 26th Jun 2013

World-T20-final-Sri-Lanka-vs-West-IndiesWest Indies’ Head coach, Otis Gibson, hopes that his team could do better in the upcoming Celkon Tri-Series this weekend, after a disappointing finish in the recent ICC Trophy in England.

The Dwayne Bravo-led team will clash with Sri Lanka in the first match of the series on Friday In Kingston, Jamaica. Coach Gibson said that he has a balanced team, but in order for the team to win, the players have to believe in themselves.

The Celkon Tri-Series will be contested between the West Indies, Sri Lanka and India. All games will be played in Jamaica.

And in more cricket, local businessman, Bobby Ramroop is hoping to push some of his top brand products in the upcoming Caribbean Premier League. Ramroop is the owner of  the New GPC and TVG. Ramroop who secured the multi-year agreement, is also the franchise holder of the Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Ramroop is upbeat about marketing Guyana as a tourist destination.

The first tournament of the Caribbean Premier League bowls off on the 30th July in Barbados and concludes ont the 24th August in Trinidad and Tobago.

And in Rugby, Guyana’s participation in this year’s Under-19 Caribbean Rugby Championship could be dealt a big blow if the association fails to attract sponsorship. But while the association continues to struggle to raise funds for next weekend’s tournament in Trinidad & Tobago, persons in the sporting fraternity are asking about the millions that were allocated for sport in the 2013 National Budget.

Team Manager, Peter Peter Campayne, today, made an appeal to corporate Guyana and the Government to provide the much needed help.

He said he expects his youngsters, if given a chance, to perform well, judging from their recent performance.

While in Football, one of the city’s top schools, Queens College, is hoping to capitalise on home field advantage when they face St. John’s College as the action continues in the Powerade Digicel School Nationwide Football tournament.

The QC captain said his team has been performing exceptionally well so far.

Other matches to be played tomorrow will see South Ruimveldt vs. Dolphin Secondary, Business School matching skills with Chase Academy and Central High School vs. Mariam Academy.
