Dropped by the West Indies selectors for the current third test between the West Indies and Australia, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo will get back to the drawing board today when he participates in the Universal DCD Club and Universal Solutions-sponsored T20 tournament at the Blairmont Community Development Centre ground.
The tournament was initially scheduled to get underway two weeks ago but heavy rain forced the organizers to postpone the seventh annual tournament.
Bishoo is a member of the Berbice Titans team while another T20 star Jonathan Foo, a virtual one man army will play for East Berbice Strikers.
Apart from those two, former West Indies opening batsman Sewnarine Chattergoon, Eugene La Fleur, Richard Ramdeen, Veerasammy Permaul, Brandon Bess and Keon Joseph will also be in action. The tournament commences with the semi-finals which pits Universal Solutions Tigers, led by Shawn Pereira, against the Steven Latcha-led East Berbice Warriors from 11am.
The second semi-final gets underway at 2pm with Berbice Titans, led by Rajiv Ivan, against West Berbice All Stars, led by Sherwyn Mc Pherson.
The winners of the semifinals will clash in the final next Wednesday at the same venue while the losing teams will contest the third place play-off.
Over $500,000 in cash and prizes are at stake in the tournament.
