The Achimota Cricket Oval C will see a section of old and current cricket players engage in a day’s fun T20 game to honor gone Heroes of the gentleman’s sport.
Scheduled to be played on Saturday, December 24, at 9am, organisers promise to honor their cherished but past heroes with a display of their wonderful performances amidst fun.
With ex-players like Simon Ateak, former national captain, Peter Ananya, Rufus Ntiamoah, Vincent Ateak, Francis Bakiweyem, Richmond Baaleri, Julius, Isaac Aboagye, and current players like Samson Awiah, James Vifah, Rexford Bakum, and Kofi Bagabena, the cricket Oval is expected to be full of ‘boowlliiing’ and ‘shoott’

Having played vital roles in the development and promotion of the game cricket, Ras Bingi was a former coach and the very person to introduce cricket to the anumle community and others around. He produced national players, some of who are currently playing.
While David Kwesi Quagraine was former president of the Ghana Cricket Association (GCA), Prince Daniel Vanderpuye-Orgle was a former player and President of GCA., while Braimah Issaka was an ex groundsman.
The recently sad exit is Henry Benjamin Ackom, who was former player, Cricket operations office and board member of the current executive board.
