Some 60-teams will be involved in the GTT sponsored Tapeball cricket competition which bowled off yesterday at the National Park Tarmac with teams from the East Coast of Demerara battling for four places in the next round.
GTT CEO Justin Nedd bowled the ceremonial ball to signal the start of what is anticipated to be a keenly fought competition as teams would not get a second chance to shine since it will be played on a knock-out format.
Nedd, in brief remarks following the bowl off, informed that the competition signals his company getting back into the community with this tournament that kicks off the CPL 2017 season reminding that his company is the proud sponsor of the Guyana Amazon Warriors.
He said that over $350,000 in prizes will be at stake for the top performers in the competition which will continue today at the same venue with the Georgetown Zone matches.
”I encourage all to enjoy, have a good time, clean fun, support the Warriors, support GTT, this is GTT doing more.”
Each team comprises of seven (7) players in the 5-overs competition which will continue next Saturday and Sunday and conclude on Sunday July 30. (F. Wilson)
