Among the players expected to participate are Christopher Barnwell, Travis Dowlin, Paul Wintz Ricky Deonarine and Ramesh Sunich.
The President and Executive of the Demerara Cricket Club believe that this important project can only augurs well in the general development of the players.
“We see this as a shot in the arm for cricket in the city and we are grateful for the contributions made by the many business entities associated with the Floodlight’s group”, DCC president Alfred Mentore said.
