Guyana: President of Guyana Dr Irfaan Ali, witnessed the exciting final of the Commander-in-Chief Inter-Service T20 cricket competition at the Police Sports Club Ground at Eve Leary yesterday.

It took a super over to decide the winners as the Guyana Police Force (GPF) held their nerves to win the championship clash against the Guyana Defence Force (GDF).

GDF batted first and made 134 for the loss of eight wickets. In reply, GPF managed a similar inning, which carried the game into a super over.

GPF batted first and scored seven runs from their six balls, while they were able to restrict GDF to three runs after two of their batsmen lost their wickets via the runout route.

Prime Minister Brigadier Mark Phillips; the Minister of Home Affairs,Robeson Benn; Chief of Staff of the GDF, Brigadier Godfrey Bess and Police Commissioner (Ag), Clifton Hicken also watched the game.

President Irfaan Ali said that the Men on Mission initiative is a movement aimed at impressing upon men the importance of responsibility, being role models and demonstrating a collective will to shoulder a progressive system to support Guyana’s developing society.

The Head of State made this assertion on Friday evening as he delivered the feature address at the launch of the Men on Mission, the 1000 Men, One Guyana initiative, at Camp Ayanganna.

“We are dedicating ourselves to not being part of the problem but doing something about the problem; to bring about a permanent solution and create positive momentum to the future generations of Guyanese. Future men can be better, can be more involved—can be role models.”

The Men on Mission movement, he added, is also to create momentum for them to take individual and collective action.

The launch of the initiative saw the participation of government officials, members of the Diplomatic Corps, members of the Armed Forces, special guests, and thousands of men from across all sectors of society.
