U16 Canada Cup Tournament – Winnipeg Manitoba – 2015:
Day One Report:
On a gorgeous warn and sunny day at the picturesque Assiniboine Park – the competition got off to a very successful start with an amazing day’s Cricket after an opening ceremony that was chaired by the hosts – Ron DIPCHAND and Garvin Budhoo.
All teams were warmly greeted by the Manitoba Cricket Association’s president and event manager to enjoy the hospitality of their fair city and the excellent facilities that were made available for this competition. The event was also graced by the presence of the City Councillor who has been very instrumental in the creation of these Cricket Facilities. The MCA should be very proud of the quality of their facilities.
The sight of 3 games being played side by side on cricket outfields that are genuinely conducive to playing the sports in its true form was very satisfying to both the players and coaches & managers who had the privilege to do so. Cricket Council of Ontario like to thank Garvin and Ron for a very well managed tournament so far and it is a welcome sight to see everything running smoothly – great job guys.
