Cricket Corner – Two young cricketers are off to India

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Oct. 3, 2019– Hello to all cricket enthusiasts!

After a few weeks of not informing you of cricket activities, here I go with some very interesting news. The Association is pleased to inform you all that two youths, Abigail Banner of Easy Does It Cricket Club from Lemonal, and Lebron Broaster of Excellence Cricket Club from Double Head Cabbage, have been selected and are on their way to Bengaluru, India to learn about cricket. This initiative is being sponsored by the Government of India. This event is scheduled for a month.

We all wish these two bright youths the best. (My personal statement to you two: You have been chosen to go abroad to widen your knowledge. At the same time, you are representing Belize, your country. Please represent well; and above all, you are ambassadors of Belize.)

 In other news:

The venue is tentatively set for Burrell Boom. Teams captain are asked to submit two names that are interested and will attend the training. More on this as time progresses.
