Nand Persaud Group of Companies calls for good leadership in Berbice Cricket

first_img… Says Foster will do an excellent jobMANAGING Director of the Nand Persaud Group of Companies, Mohendra Persaud, has called for good leadership in Berbice cricket.To this end, Persaud fully supports well-known sports personality and community leader Hilbert Foster as the preferred presidential candidate for Sunday’s Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) elections.“Cricket in Berbice is at a virtual standstill; things are haywire and lost at the moment. Cricket is a national game that runs deep within the society and various communities.”Persaud continued that, “What is happening now is degrading, too much politics. It needs quick and urgent rehabilitation. A man like Foster, with his proven track record, can stop the slid, excavate the rot and bring Berbice cricket back to where it used to be.Things need to be done differently. The world over things are done differently. The cricket needs serious upgrading to make a difference and bring persons back to the sport.”He said that Foster’s reputation and achievements with the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (MS) are well known. They have Guyana’s most comprehensive Cricket Developmental and Community Enhancement Programme with teams at all levels and divisions. The club is the only one in Guyana with a female cricket programme.Persaud stated: “Our company is a reputable one, and Foster’s dealings with us have being above board. We are both pacesetters and leaders. I have no hesitation in throwing our support behind Foster for presidency of the BCB.” The company once sponsored the Port Mourant Cricket Club for a number of years, but withdrew because of some upheavals. Accountability was one of the problems.The company’s sponsorship goes far and wide including the Karibee Boys and Karibee Girls softball cricket teams, horse racing, football, basketball, softball cricket among numerous others.He is willing to throw his support and the reputation of the company back into the fray as long as things change and there is accountability.last_img read more

Kazakh Lutsenko wins Tour de France stage six

first_imgBy Julien PretotMONT AIGOUAL, France (Reuters) – Kazakh Alexey Lutsenko claimed his maiden victory on the Tour de France when he won the sixth stage, a 191-km trek from Le Teil yesterday as the top guns again delayed the fight for the general classification.Astana rider Lutsenko, a former Under-23 world champion, prevailed from an eight-man breakaway at the top of Mont Aigoual to add to his 2017 Vuelta stage win.Spain’s Jesus Herrada took second place, 55 seconds behind with Belgian Greg van Avermaet in third, 2:15 off the pace.Briton Adam Yates retained the overall leader’s yellow jersey after staying tucked in the main peloton, which crossed the line with a deficit of 2:53. “We talked about it in the team bus this morning and we agreed that it was a stage that suited me,” said Lutsenko, who broke clear in the punishing ascent to the Col de la Lusette, a 11.7km climb at an average gradient of 7.3%.Behind him, the main favourites did not use the ascent to test each other, leaving defending champion Egan Bernal’s Ineos team to set a moderate pace.“We knew that this climb was tricky, it was a pretty bad surface. I think we climbed at our own speed and saved energy, we just tried to stay safe,” said Ineos domestique Michal Kwiatkowski. “Everyone is keeping his powder dry and is saving energy for the next days,” said Yates, who was never threatened throughout the stage.Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, who is third overall, suffered an untimely puncture in the climb up to the Col de la Lusette but managed to regain his place in the peloton easily, thanks to the bunch’s slow pace.The only sparkle came in the final metres, when Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe produced a brief attack to regain one second after losing the yellow jersey to Yates, following a 20-second penalty for illegal feeding on Wednesday. Today’s seventh stage is a 168-km ride from Millau to Lavaur, which is expected to favour the sprint specialists.last_img read more
