PowerGen batted first and scored 234 all out with Guyanese opener Rajindra Chandrika getting 37.
Central Sports responded with 113 all out. With a lead of 121 runs on first innings, PowerGen made 128 for four declared in their second innings, setting Central Sports 250 for victory. Nagamootoo, bowling for SIS Central Sports, took 2/53 in PowerGen’s second innings.
