RHTYSC, ACC slam GCB over Jaguars Franchise League tournament

first_imgTHE management of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTYSC) and the Albion Cricket Club (ACC) have expressed disappointment in the manner in which the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Jaguars Franchise League three-day tournament has been organised.According to a joint release, “The clubs which have produced the most cricketers for Berbice have been kept in the dark about arrangements for the tournament and who is responsible for the selection of the Upper Corentyne and Lower Corentyne or New Amsterdam teams.”It further stated, “To make matters worse, the Berbice Cricket Board has not been consulted or informed of plans for the tournament. The two clubs, who together share a record nine Guyana Cricket Club of the Year Awards are very concerned about the current state of affairs.The RHTYSC and the ACC are committed towards uniting all the factions of Guyana’s Cricket but we would not be willing to do so in the future if greater effort is not made to ensure that our cricket is administered in a transparent manner. The two clubs seek urgent answers to the following questions.Who were the persons responsible for selecting the teams and what were the criteria used?Why was the BCB not consulted despite the efforts to unite the two cricket boards?Does the sponsoring of teams give the sponsor, the sole right to select players for a team?Is it not a conflict of interest for a president of a cricket club to be a sponsor of a team, in which his club is involved?Why were the clubs and the BCB not consulted on the arrangements for the tournament. Our advice and suggestions would have assisted in better arrangements.Who selected the officials for the tournament and what were the criteria used?Is it a deliberate policy to side-line the top two cricket clubs in Berbice and the BCB when we were open to healing the wounds in Guyana’s Cricket?”“Why were a lot of promising young cricketers like Josiah Dhanai, Kevlon Anderson, Kevin Sinclair and Sylus Tyndall left out of the 18-man squad and the highly productive Collis Butts was not considered? Butts was the Man-of-the-Final in the last BCB first division tournament.The RHTYSC and ACC are major stakeholders in Berbice and Guyana’s cricket and together have ideas and suggestions that would assist in the development of the game. We are at a loss why we are being sidelined,” the release ended.last_img read more
