AT the request of the newly elected Executive Committee of Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr, met with the members for a guided tour of the Guyana National Stadium, Providence at the weekend.
Minister Ramson updated members on the continuing works at the stadium and in particular the playing area.
The minister said that he was well aware of the upcoming international tours to the region and that the Government of Guyana, when necessary, will be bidding for matches at the stadium, including the West Indies vs Pakistan T20 tournament and the ICC Under-19 World Cup Championship to be played in the West Indies in August 2021 and January 2022 respectively.
The GCB members were all impressed with the facilities at the stadium and noted that the ground and pitch were in excellent condition and up to international standard.
Minister Ramson took the opportunity to again congratulate the Executive Members of the GCB on their recent appointments and urged them to build a strong cricket structure and establish partnerships with all cricket stakeholders in this new dispensation.
