Excitement in the Limacol CPL T20 as the Guyana Amazon Warriors face the Jamaica Tallawahs
Cricket: Friday night excitement in the Limacol Caribbean Premier league 20/20 tournament as the Amazon Warriors face the Jamica Tallawahs in the second game at the Providence Stadium. The Warriors Captained by Ramnaresh Sarwan are riding high on confidence after Wednesday night’s victory over the Trinidad Red steel led by West Indies one-day Captain Dwayne Bravo. The Warriors kept their composure even under the onslaught by 17-year-old Pooran of the Red Steel to win comfortably in the end by 19 runs.
The final over saw the Red Steel needing 20 runs to win. Sarwan gave Narine the ball and he did what may be one of the rarest feats in 20/20 cricket; bowl a maiden over, with a wicket as a bonus.
Hockey: Coaches of the 3 teams in the Caribbean Kids Hockey Festival are all confident of success as the Caribbean Kids Hockey Festival ended. Dominique Wilkinson of Guyana sees it as a great opportunity for the old Fort players to progress.
Lou Sealey of Trinidad said that they have been training youths since 2005 and were looking at competitions like this one.
She also believes the benefits are many for the youths.
Deighton Maynard is the Coach of the Combermere School in Barbados and he also likes the concept of the Festival.
Maynard said he will recommend the festival to authorities in Barbados on his return home.
The festival was sponsored by GT&T and the Guyana Hockey Board.
Basketball: The Pepsi Sonics holiday Programme is up and running and according to President Merle Casey they started slowly but are getting more students everyday.
Casey said she would like to see more support from corporate Guyana for programmes such as hers.
Secretary of Pepsi Sonics Bruce Haynes also said the Programme is yielding results.
The programme starts this week and is expected to last for 2 weeks but may be extended by the organisers if they get the support.
