ANTHONY Bramble and Chandrapaul Hemraj, two contracted Guyana Harpy Eagles players who missed the first practice match due to fitness issues, have been included for the second match which starts today at the Albion Community Centre ground from 09:30hrs.
In a section of the media, it was reported that both players would have improved on their fitness tests, which made them available for selection.
According to a release by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) on Wednesday, “this match was initially scheduled to begin on Wednesday, January 12 but was rescheduled due to medical advice on COVID-19 health-related matters.”
A player in the group had returned a positive COVID-19 result.
The first practice match ended in a tame draw at Albion on Saturday. The highlights of the Four-Day match were Shimron Hetmyer (149) and Tevin Imlach (106), while there were fifties for Clinton Pestano (69), Akshaya Persaud (61), Kemol Savory (54) and Tagenarine Chanderpaul (52); Antony Adams took 5-60.
The teams will once again be led by Leon Johnson and Keemo Paul, and the final practice match in preparation for next month’s regional Four-Day Championship is scheduled for January 20-23.
