The staff and officials of the GCB are deeply humbled and satisfied at being finally recognized and appreciated for the unprecedented successes that our teams have achieved over the past few years. Even though this award highlights our achievements for the year 2015, it is no secret to the Caribbean people that Guyana has dominated regional cricket over the recent years at both the youth and senior levels. And what is most impressive and fulfilling is that our success story came through the walls of continuous oppression. Despite all of our struggles, the GCB continues to deliver on our mandate: producing winning teams, creating exciting innovations and remarkable opportunities amongst other initiatives. Undoubtedly, our positive approach has led to our successes which continue to fuel our zest towards developing quality cricket and cricketers whilst making us the envy of our detractors.

Anand Sanasie, the honorable Secretary of the GCB, richly deserves his due recognition. Being chosen as the best Sports Official is undoubtedly a fitting accolade as he serves tirelessly and fearlessly to ensure the continued development of Guyana’s Cricket. His administrative skills are second to none, as he led the GCB into a new dimension of cricket evolution, locally and regionally.

The GCB and Secretary Sanasie are grateful for these awards that would serve as a reminder of our tremendous accomplishments and further motivate us to storm ahead developing strategic programmes to take our cricket to greater heights.
