GTM Under-19 tournament to commence in May

- Two day National practice game also planned

The 2012 Guyana and Trinidad Mutual (GTM) Inter- County Under-19 tournament is set to bowl off in May, a press relase from the Guyana Cricket Board yesterday stated.

According to the release, the competition will be contested over three rounds with seven matches  being played at venues all over the country.

The tournament will run from May 8– 13.
This will be the 36th year that GTM  will be  sponsoring the local Under-19 competition.

According to the release, this year’s tournament will not involve the customary three-day format simply because the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) will not stage a Regional Under-19 tournament this year.
It was also disclosed that on Monday a remedial camp for senior cricketers will begin.

Players will be housed at the Chetram Singh Center of Excellence and use the indoor facility, the practice facility at the Guyana National Stadium and the Georgetown Cricket Club for net and other sessions.

Members of the current National team will join them for practice and a two-day match will be staged before the national team leaves for its final two matches of the ongoing Regional 4-day competition against Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago.

The senior players selected are:Sewnarine Chattergoon, Rajendra Chandrika, Jonathan Foo, Jason Sinclair, Rajiv Ivan, Elton Baker, Zaheer Mohammed, Gajanand Singh, Herell Green, Steven  Jacobs, Anthony Adams, Vishal Singh, Charles Ramson Jr., Ryan Ramdass, Jeetendra Sukdeo, Jason Heyliger, Raj Nanan, Amir Khan and Totaram Bishun.
