Bad light prevented Berbice from gaining an outright victory over host Essequibo in the second round of the GTM/GCB U-19 three day inter county cricket competition which ended yesterday at the Ann Regina Community Centre ground in Essequibo.
The umpires were forced to call of the game in the final season with Berbice 13 runs away from victory.
Essequibo resumed their second innings on the final day on 32-1 and progressed to 151 all out in 78.4 overs. National U-15 vice captain Ricardo Adams led the home team’s batting with 31 while national U-19 player Anthony Adams made 27, Vijay Surajpaul made 25 not out, Christopher Blucher 24 and Kevon Boodie 15.
Offspinner Sherwin McPherson bagged 5-51 off 25 overs while national U-15 captain Shawn Perriera had 2-49 from 31 overs and Harrinarine Chattergoon 2-3 from 2.4 overs.
Set 158 for victory, Berbice ended on 145-4 off 27 overs. Jamal LaFleur top scored with 56 while Chattergoon supported with 40 and Jamally Odle 22.
Ronford Beaton, Ravindra Mohabir and Ricardo Adams took one wicket each for the host who ended on 6 points while Berbice collected 3 points. The game was also interrupted by rain in the final session.
Berbice, the defending champions, will now take on Demerara on Thursday at DCC in the final round of the three day format while Essequibo will play Berbice in their first match of the one day competition.
Meanwhile coach of the Essequibo team Vibert Johnson said his batsmen got starts but did not capitalise in the second innings and they were also guilty of bowling badly. He told Kaieteur Sport that they are looking forward to the one dayers and he is hoping for an improve performance from his charges.
