Guyan visited Scarborough, in Ontario, last Sunday to play a team of Canadian Guyanese in the Celebrity Cricket match. The game, won by Guyana, was part of the Guyana Festival weekend to celebrate Guyanese independence.

The Canadian side made 143 for 8. Aftab Shamshuddeem, who is in the Canada squad to face UAE next month, topscored with 32 as the Canadians put on 143 for 8. Two more Canadian internationals, Sunil Dhaniram and Abdool Samad, also played for the side.

Guyana won easily, by seven wickets, with Sewnarine Chattergoon making 30 and wicketkeeper Darwin Christian 38 before both retired. The Guyanese Consul General to Canada presented the main trophy.

    I was delighted to know that a Guyanese cricket team from Guyana had competed with a Guyanese team residing in Canada.

    Unfortunately, there are Guyanese who are residing in Quebec and who have had the opportunity to reprsent Canada in the past, but who did not have a chance to compete as well.

    I would like to see that all Guyanese regardless whether they are residing in Toronto or Quebec have an opportunity to represent the Canadian team. Probably, in the future, this team can also play a few matches in Quebec.
