New York will be seeking additional glory through Bedessee Destroyers which will be throwing down the gauntlet to nine other teams in Twenty/20 competition this weekend (December 4) in Florida.
Following the Regional team’s triumph in the National 50 overs championship, two weeks ago.
Destroyers will carry the Big Apple colors in the inaugural U.S. Cricket Open where they will be battling for a $10,000 first prize at the Broward County stadium over three days.
They have a strong 15-man squad including the likes of leading players Kevin Darlington, Carl Wright, Orlando Baker, Glenn Hall, Barrington Bartley, Akeem Dodson, Andre Kirton and Javein Thomas. It is primarily a young team with a dash of experience to be guided by the expert services of coach Linden Fraser.
Destroyers came to prominence over the summer by upsetting a strong field of nationwide teams to win the Dream Cricket 20/20 competition which qualified them to compete with arguably the best 20/20 teams in the country in the U.S. Cricket Open. Ten teams will represent states and cities comprising the pulse of United States cricket.
And Fraser will have an ideal opportunity to prove the New York cricket committee wrong for removing him as coach of the state team for the national championships, after winning the Eastern Conference title earlier in the summer.
The teams will be grouped in two pools for round robin competition to determine the best two to compete in the final. Miami Thunder, Atlanta Eagles, Washington Tigers, U.S. Tigers, Connecticut Lions, Washington Cricket Club, Caribbean Stars, SGCC Blues and U.S. All Stars will join Bedessee Destroyers in the battle.
The action starts on
Friday with day and evening games and concludes on Sunday with the
final under lights in America’s lone cricket stadium.
