Cricket Online!

The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) has launched their official www.guyanacricketboard.com website which the body wants to make the go-to website for cricket information in Guyana.

According to a release from the GCB, the website is being developed in phases with the basic informational and interactive phases now completed. The next phase would deal with incorporating statistical and scoring software for players and matches with the ultimate goal of having live scores for games streamed for viewers.

At the present time, the website provides a wealth of information for the cricketing public, providing the history and administrative structure of the GCB, details of the staff and executive body of the GCB, the 2014 cricket calendar, administrative structure, GCB’s members and their constituents, members’ constitutions, cricket programmes, and current local, regional and international news.

The site also features scores for the regional and local inter-county matches recently completed. The GCB also pointed out that it is their aim to make the website the number one go-to website for all cricket news for Guyana.

The official sponsors of the various tournaments are prominently displayed on the site while a few have been granted free ads for a few months thus ensuring maximum mileage for these sponsors, according to the statement. The cricket magazine which was launched a few months back titled “The Guyana Cricketer” has also been posted online for persons who were not able to secure a hard copy.

The site also has several links to its parent West Indies Cricket Board, International Cricket Council and others along with its Facebook and Twitter accounts and is constructed, hosted and maintained by GX Media.
