Upper Corentyne must not be under estimated and have in their lineup, Naeem Yacob who grabbed 5-wickets in the first round match, Permashwar Chatterpaul, Satruhan Singh, Farazz Mohamed and L. Latchman.

Berbice off spinner Krisendat Ramoo would be at the helm of the West Berbice team which include the likes of national pacer Keon Joseph, Brendon Bess, Arthley Bailey, Raun Johnson and all-rounder Keith Fraser.
