Griffith urged female world champions to build from experience

Chairman of the Senior Selection Panel of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), Rayon Griffith, urged female world champions, Tremayne Smartt and Shamaine Campbelle to build on their historic experience in the Women’s World T20 which finished with an emphatic victory for the Caribbean ladies last Sunday.

Griffith along with GCB Assistant Administrator, Melinda Bishundyal-Chaitram, welcomed the two ladies home yesterday at the Ogle International Airport. He stated that the GCB is proud that there were Guyanese representing the West Indies in the Tournament and have their names written in history as the first female West Indies team to achieve this glorious title. He said this exposure could only assist them to enhance their cricket; noting that they need continue with the discipline they showed in the World Cup and strive to be the best.

The Chairman of Selectors posited that the GCB plans to honour for the ladies in recognition of their efforts. The Board hopes that this accomplishment by the regional women would motivate young girls to pursue a career in this sport which is becoming more accommodating for females.
