Winning the toss and on a placid wicket, CCC instructed BCCB to field first. The visitors compiled a challenging total of 184 for 8 in their allotted 40 overs with John Campayne working up a neat 43 – 4 X 4 and 1 X 6, Royden Paul supporting with 33 including 3 X 4.
Also enjoying the BCCB bowling were Dorian Grenion 32- 3 X 4, Martin Rajmangal 28 – 2 X 4 and Raymond Small 20. BCCB in reply found it difficult to deal with the bowling of Raymond Small 5-30 and Dion Ferrier 3
– 20 as they were swept away for 115 in the 26th over.
