Guyana players join with Government to promote country
The Guyana Cricket Board has joined hands with the Government of Guyana through the Office of the President and Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport in support of the newly crowned Caribbean T20 Champions.
The Guyana cricket team will wear their colours more proudly than ever before as their jersey will carry the Ministry of Tourism slogan “Guyana - The Amazon Adventure". The aim is to promote Guyana as an attractive tourist destination.
This unique initiative bore fruit after the team impressed the President of the Republic of Guyana, Bharrat Jagdeo and Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport Dr. Frank Anthony by their performance in the West Indies Cricket Board's Caribbean T20. Guyana defeated a host of big names to win the championship and seal a berth in the second edition of the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.
Guyana open their CLT20 campaign against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on September 12 at Centurion and will be hoping their new sponsors will prove lucky for them and the Republic of Guyana.
