National under-15 player, Isiah Thorne has received a pair of batting gloves from the Berbice Cricket Board as part of its ‘ball project.’
According to the BCB, Thorne is the quickest young seamer in the country and is poised to represent Guyana again this season. Thorne, the BCB noted, has shown significant improvement with the bat and shows the prospect of becoming a good all-rounder.
Alex Algoo, himself a national youth cricketer, speaking on behalf of the BCB said that he is very thankful to the board for giving himself and other young cricketers lots of opportunities to play cricket. He added that there are many competitions played with lots of emphasis on youth cricket. He encouraged Thorne to take his cricket seriously and strive for excellence and told him to train hard, be disciplined at all times and be committed.
Thorne, in response, thanked the BCB for the kind gesture and promised that he will surely do everyone in Berbice proud.
BCB president Hilbert Foster only recently presented a pair of bowling boots to Thorne.
The BCB expressed its gratitude to several persons who aided the ball project including Brian Chunilall, Noreen Seubarran-Gaskin, Two friends of Berbice Cricket, Yasin Mohamed, Randal Patterson, Ryan Bhagwandin, Ian Bhagwandin, Derick Beharry, Renick and Guytri Beharry, Kalvin Somrah, Raj Mathura, Faizal Jaffarally, Bobby and Pamela Kewlachand, Mukesh Mattai, Danny Somai, Tribhowan Mohabir, Yadram Bojh, Sharmila Muneshwar, Javed Raffik, Nazim Hussain, Allan Mangru, Owen Humphrey, Leanna Bachan, Imran Saccoor, Sean Devers, Vijai Das, Rakesh Soopersaud, Bhimsain George, Jeffrey Samaroo, Jack Beharry and Surendra Hiralall.
