At the Cumberland ground, Berbice Educational Institute (BEI) won the toss and elected to bat. This move proved valuable, as BEI posted a competitive 186 all out in 29.2 overs of their allotted 30 overs. Gevon Shultz scored a brilliant 77 and was ably supported by Rabindranauth Ramnauth who made 21. Bowling for Tutorial Academy, Leon Swammy grabbed 3 for 10, while Kelvin Hinds and Romel Retimiah picked up 2 for 11 and 2 for 22 respectively.
In reply Tutorial Academy fell way short of the victory target of 187, being bundled out for 52 from 17.2 of their allotted 30 overs. Bowling for BEI, Gevon Shultz snared 4 for 11 to seal victory for his school, while Rabindranauth Ramnauth supported well, with 2 for a miserly 3 runs. BEI won by 134 runs.
In another match played at Cumberland ground, Vryman’s Ervin Secondary won the toss and decided to take first strike. However, their decision seemed uninformed, as the Berbice High bowlers made batting for Vryman’s Ervin Secondary an uncomfortable and miserable task, with them eventually managing a mere 79 all out off 24 of their allotted 30 overs.
