Guyana Times article.
Georgetown, Guyana - Universal DVD/ Universal Solutions and Metro Office and Computer Supplies have added their support to the Young Warriors Cricket Club Mashramani Cup.
Both companies made substantial donations on Thursday to offset the costs for the competition, which is slated for Sunday at the Young Warriors Cricket Club ground.
The one-day event targets second division cricket teams in the East Canje/East Coast Berbice area. Ten teams have accepted the invitation to participate in the tournament.
These are Gangaram Strikers, Betsy Ground Triple Stars, Goed Banana Land, Young and the Restless, Rose Hall Community Centre, Canefield, Young Warriors, Bristol Warriors, Number Two Cricket Club and Number 19 Combined.
Seawell Cricket Club will not be participating this year and their place has been taken by the Rose Hall Community Centre Club, which has been recently resuscitated.
The tournament will be played on a five-over-per-side basis and teams will be allowed to field one first division player each.
The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) rules, which do not consider a player over the age of 40 as a first division player, will be used.
Ten teams will once again vie for the top price of $60,000, plus a trophy.
The second place team will collect $30,000 and a trophy, third place finisher will collect $15,000, while the fourth place team will be presented with a trophy.
There will also be incentives for the man-of-the-match in the final.
