Demerara 157-5; Essequibo 123-9 as rain hampers second day’s play
Rain once again limited play in the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) senior Inter County four-day match between Demerara and the President’s XI at the Demerara Cricket Club ground, Queenstown.
Demerara, resuming on 107-1 with Rajendra Chandrika (52) and Shemroy Barrington (13) at the crease, reached 157-5 at close of play as only 30.3 overs were bowled in the day.
Both batsmen fell within sight of milestones as Chandrika was lbw to Seon Daniels for 73 and Barrington was dismissed for 32.
The President’s XI rubbed salt into Demerara’s wounds by also removing Chanderpaul Hemraj and Joseph Perry with both batsmen failing to come off the mark. Daniels was the pick of the bowlers with 3-34 while Brandon Bess collected 1-24.
