The Enmore Community Center Cricket Club will host Blairmont Centre Cricket Club as the two face off for the inaugural Freedom Cup on Wednesday in recognition of Emancipation celebrations.
The two teams, who share a long history of shared friendship have been resurgent after a long time out of competitive cricket.
The two senior clubs will face off in a winner take all 30 overs a side hard ball competition with the first ball to bowl off from 09:30hrs.
Enmore and Blairmont have only played once in the last eight years with Blairmont triumphing by a two wicket margin after Devindra Lalsa’s all-round effort of 51 and three wickets including that of Shivnarine Chanderpaul who had a 5-wicket haul in the match.
The two clubs have produced numerous players representing Guyana at various level such as Sheik Mohamed, Amir Khan, Rudolph Doodnauth, Naresh Roopnarine, Parmanand Randhan, Javed Karim, Seon Glasgow, Javed Mohamed, Nigel Deodat, Harriman Joseph, Safraz Ali and Marvan Prashad among others.
