GT&T/Hand-in-Hand Inter-County cricket – Day 3
The penultimate day of the GT&T/Hand-in-Hand four day Inter County cricket, final round match between Berbice and Essequibo was washed out without a ball being bowled for the third consecutive day at the Everest ground yesterday.
Although the sun was out in all its glory on Monday and yesterday and the pitch which was covered, heavy overnight rain left the ground with puddles of water.
And despite efforts from the ground staff who removed the surface water by mid-day, several sections of the ground remained in a soggy state and play for the day was called off at Tea.
If it rained last night and there is limited or no play today then Berbice will be crowned champions after defeating defending champs Demerara outright for the first time since 2009 in the last match at Enmore.
The other game, between the Demerara and the President’s X1 at the Uitvlugt ground in the West Coast Demerara was also washed out without a ball being bowled in that match.
Today is the final day in both matches and action is scheduled to start at 09:00hrs before the presentation of trophies is made.
