Garbarran was dismissed for 25 (1×4 1×6) while Hardeo, who top scored with 57 not out (2×4 4×6) and Basil Persaud (07 not out) ensured their team reached the target in 10 overs. Yadram (1-6) and Mohamed (1-7) were the wicket takers for Enterprise.

Hardeo was the man of the match award while Everest collected a trophy.

The match was organised in honour of Everest’s 100th anniversary celebrations.
