The Berbice Cricket Board has secured another sponsorship deal for its proposed 20/20 tournaments for second division teams this year.

Raffik Construction Services last Thursday came on board as the official sponsor of the Lower Corentyne 20/20 tournament at a cost of $100,000.

Eighteen second division teams from No. 1 to No. 43 Villages will be part of the tournament.

At the presentation ceremony, chairman of the BCB Special Events Committee Hilbert Foster expressed gratitude to Mohamed Raffik, CEO of Raffik Construction Services, for his sponsorship of the tournament. Foster explained that the BCB, with the aim of returning cricket to the grassroots level, has embarked on hosting cricket tournaments for teams within the four sub-zones in Berbice.

Javed Raffik, representing his father at the presentation hailed the BCB as the best sport organisation in Guyana. He stated that Raffik Construction Services was pleased to be associated with the BCB because of its outstanding work in developing Berbice cricket.
