Hadi’s first division competition resumes today

The Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) Hadi’s World Incorporated (City Mall) first division two-day cricket competition resumes this weekend with the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) playing Gandhi Youth Organization (GYO) at Camp Ayanganna.

The two teams met in a second division fixture last weekend at the same venue with the GYO clinging on for a draw.

GDF captain Paul Castello will be eager to come out victorious this time, and add to his successes after claiming nine wickets and scoring a half century last weekend.

Kamesh Yadram led the recovery for GYO last weekend with 63, and his leg spin also collected three wickets. Yadram, a former Guyana u-19 player, will be a key figure for GYO this weekend.

In the Noble House Seafoods second division two-day competition, GYO  will host the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC), who were victorious at the very venue last weekend.

GCC’S Winston Forrester scored 69 and took three wickets for just four runs in GCC’s defeat of Malteenoes Sports Club and, as MVP of the first division competition last year; he will be a key player with both bat and ball for his team.

The University Of Guyana (UG) will be hosted by DCC in a rematch since UG eliminated DCC in the semi final of last year’s competition by virtue of securing first innings points in the drawn encounter. DCC will be keen to avenge that result on home turf when the side’s meet this weekend.

Police Sports Club (PSC) is set to face Vikings at the Muslim Youth Organization (MYO) ground in the other match to be played this weekend.
