Dear Editor,

The Executives and members of the North Essequibo Cricket Committee (NECC), which is one of eight constituent members of the Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB), wishes to publicly applaud the main opposition political party (APNU) for supporting the Cricket Administration Bill into law.

The Committee overwhelmingly is of the view that the passage of the Bill will restore democracy, legitimacy and good governance of the national sport in Guyana. The NECC further recalls its struggle to be heard and in the process its President Mr. Prince Holder was banned by the ECB because of his stance to expose the deficiencies of the sport and its executives, including members of the Guyana Cricket Board.

While the struggle will continue to restore pride and dignity to the sport following continuous depressing performances at varying levels, the Cricket Administration Bill must be viewed as the legal tool to incorporate all stakeholders including the Berbice Cricket Board, Georgetown Cricket Association and the East Coast Cricket Committee among other entities that collectively will seek to provide a brighter future for the players.

The NECC upholds such view and stands committed towards forging fruitful ties with the legitimate Guyana Cricket Board.
