A triangular limited-overs cricket tournament in Scarborough has been organized to mark Trinidad & Tobago’s 51st independence anniversary.
Guyana will play Jamaica with the winner hosting T & T in the final on August 31 at the University of Toronto Scarborough campus ground.
The tournament has been expanded to include Guyana after T & T and Jamaica played a feature match last year to coincide with both countries’ 50th independence anniversary. Jamaica and T & T attained independence on August 6 and 31, respectively.
Fete Match Association Toronto collaborated with Sorkkam – a Scarborough recreational club – to stage last year’s match.
At stake this year in this year’s Independence classic is the T & T Consul General/Sorkkam trophy.
“Cricket is a sport that has a long history of promoting goodwill and a sense of unity and pride in the Caribbean,” said Consul General Dr. Vidhya Tota Maharaj. “Trinidad & Tobago, through the efforts of my office is pleased to partner with the Fete Match Association in organizing this wonderful family event.”
