Tamran Root Cricket Club

Name: Tamran Root Cricket Club
Address: Hampshire, Corentyne, Berbice
Ground: Hampshire cricket ground

Tamran Root Cricket Club has been very successful in cricket in its relatively short history. The club got its name from "Tamarind Town", which is an area near the Hampshire cricket ground. Someone misspelled the name, but the club liked it and decided to keep it.

Club members are very enthusiastic and keen cricketers, as is evidenced by a balanced team and outstanding performances, such as Satesh Dwarka's 9 wickets for 4 runs that helped Tamran Root to dismiss the opposition for just 25 runs. Tamran Root's success has lead to many players from other teams wanting to play for the club.

Hampshire is a village west of Rose Hall, with several businesses, including a rice mill.
