Reigning champions out of Independence T20

Following the ongoing dispute surrounding the Independence T20 Cup fiasco, President of the Port Mourant Cricket Club (PMCC) and chief sponsor of reigning champions Universal Berbice DVD Titans, Vickram Seubarran confirmed that his team will not be participating in this year’s tournament.

Seubarran told Stabroek Sports yesterday that he will not be involved in this year’s activity due to the decision by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to deem the tournament “unapproved”.

The Titans defeated Georgetown last year in a thrilling finals under lights, but according to Seubarran he personally will not be involved in this year’s competition. He further elaborated that if the players or the team were to be involved they will not be operating under the title or sponsorship of Universal DVD Berbice.

The GCB released a letter signed by WICB Manager of Cricket Operations, Roland Holder who warned that players who went ahead and took part in the tournament will face penalties which include the “possibility of being banned from playing cricket in any tournament under the auspices of the WICB/GCB”.
