Rajendra Chandrika missed a century by 10 runs but despite the occasional drizzle on a day of stop start cricket, Demerara captured first innings points against defending Inter County four-day champs GT&T Berbice at the end of the second day’s play of the Guyana Cricket Board tournament at the Everest Cricket Club ground yesterday.After bowling out Berbice for 168 on the opening day, Demerara reached 286/7 by close of play, with Chandrika making the top score of 90.

Demerara resumed on 87/1 off 30 overs with Chandrika on 46 a knock which included three fours and a six while Shemroy Barrington was not out on 17.   Barrington and Chandrika put on 137 runs for the second wicket to seal first innings honours for Demerara without any hiccups.

Vishaul Singh and the patient Chanderpaul Hemraj took the score to 205 before Singh was lbw to Eon Hooper for 17 from 44 balls.
A brief drizzle after tea caused the day’s second delay, and upon resumption, Chanderpaul Hemraj tried to hit Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai over mid on but only succeeded in gifting a catch to Assad Fudadin for seven from 56

Zaheer Mohamed played a decent knock of 36 from 61 balls with four well timed fours and a six over midwicket but missed a flick and was bowled  by Hopper at 264/6.  Shaquille Williams followed with the score on 274, lbw to Keon Joseph for nought.

Demerara took their lead to 118 runs before close of play, which was extended to 5:30 pm to make up for lost time. Joseph Perry remains unbeaten on 31 with two fours, while Paul Wintz is with him not out on two as Demerara closed on 286/7 from 125 overs.
