Griffith encourages Franchise League cricketers to play smart cricket

Once they perform they will definitely be in the selectors’ eyes. Apart from those contracted players, other players who have reached the selectors’ criteria are also eligible for national selection under the ‘Pay for Play’ criteria.”.Meanwhile, the League resumes today, and the Essequibo Franchise have maintained the lead in the eight-team fixture.Essequibo emerged as point-standing leaders on 40.8 points, closely followed by West Demerara with 38.4.For today’s fourth round fixtures; Lower Corentyne face East Bank at Young Warriors, Upper Corentyne battle West Demerara at Port Mourant, West Berbice take on East Coast at Bush Lot and Georgetown go up against Essequibo at Tuschen.Point standings after round three: Loses West Demerara3202430461.438.4 Batting BonusTeam Bowling BonusFast Bowling Bonus East Coast Demerara30003626118 Essequibo320240349.840.8 Matches Wins Abandon Upper Corentyne311120319126 372.324.3 Teams Total West Berbice30300009.99.9last_img read more
