DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, September 26, 2018

In keeping with tradition, the Minister responsible for Sport was presented with a cricket bat bearing the signatures of all the players who represented Guyana at recently concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2018.

Manager of the Guyana Amazon Warriors team, Omar Khan recently made the formal presentation to Dr. George Norton, Minister of Social Cohesion, with responsibility for Culture, Youth and Sport. This was done at the minister’s office on Main and Quamina Streets, Georgetown.

Khan expressed gratitude to Minister Norton for the support given to the team throughout their CPL journey.

The Team Manager added that even though Guyana did not win the usually anticipated tournament, the games did enable significant exposure to young, vibrant Guyanese players.

Minister Norton agreed, noting that the Guyana Amazon Warriors did play extremely well throughout the tournament, making Guyana very proud.

It was only recently announced that one of the ‘Warriors’, all-rounder, Sherfane Rutherford is the lone Guyanese cricketer recruited for the T10 Cricket League competition by the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East.

Rutherford, age 20, was reportedly drafted by the Bengal Tigers to play in the tournament which is scheduled to take place from November 23 – December 2, 2018.
