In GDF’s first innings, David Rajmangal made 51 while Terry Fraser was the other batsman to reach 20 with 27. Pacer Keon Sinclair (4-37) and former Test off spinner Clyde Butts, who at 60 is the oldest first division player in Guyana, took 3-34.

Set 178 to win from 28 overs, GINC reached 180-5 when Suknanan (6) hit the winning boundary in near darkness after Harris was removed from the attack and five penalty runs were awarded to GNIC for time wasting with them on 171-5.
