Smith also urged the cricketers’ parents to work along with the Berbice Cricket Board as the Board intends to create a working bond among itself, players, parents and the general public.Berbice are the defending champions and they face off today with the GCB Select Under-15 team at Bourda while Demerara clash with Essequibo at the Lusignan ground.last_img read more
