Police, who scored an upset defeat of the much vaunted Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) will be looking to arrest the GCC team in what is their first final for a number of years,

While Police will look to all-rounder Ricardo Adams to continue his fine form and lead them to victory, GCC will be banking on Guyana Amazon Warriors’ latest recruit Robin Bacchus.

The umpires for the match will be Shannon Crawford and Yosef Yisrael with Zaheer Mohamed as the reserve umpire and a keen tussle is anticipated.
