On a night with perfect weather for cricket and a fast and lush green outfield, Albion Masters of Berbice defeated Floodlights Masters in a friendly T20 match by 7 wickets with 15 balls to spare at the DCC ground.
The host won the toss and took first strike with opening pair of Ricky Deonarain and Ramoo Malone racing to 37 in four overs before they lost Malone for 20. Thereafter, Albion Masters fought back with some tight bowling. Aaron Beharry and Deonarain put on 33 runs for the second wicket before Beharry went for 7, followed by Deonarain for a well played 39. The innings went into further decline as former national senior all rounder Hubern Evans and Powan Baldeo made scoring very difficult. Floodlights Masters lost three quick wickets before former Berbice allrounder Anil Beharry came to the rescue with a rapid unbeaten 38 off 15 balls with 4 sixes and 2 fours. The innings closed at 130 for 6 off 20 overs. Evans took 3 for 28 off 4 overs.

Sumair who enjoyed a charmed life, went for 31 bowled by Dharam Persaud. Baldeo went for 38 but Imran Hussain contributed a rapid unbeaten 35 to see his team to victory. Persaud ended with 2 for 29.
