Over at Bourda Ground, early morning showers similar to Friday’s which forced the opening day to be abandoned, led officials to conduct a few inspections which eventually led to the match being called off at 14:05hrs.

Georgetown were 63-3 with spinners Devon Lord and Gajanan Suknanan who took seven wickets on Friday to help skittle East Coast out for a measly 148 with 40 apiece from Ramnarine Chatura and Gavin Boodwah.

Up in the Ancient county of Berbice at the Port Mourant Ground, Upper Corentyne resuming on 25-2 chasing 148 runs with just 123 need to hand Lower Corentyne their first loss, crumbled for 114-10.

The damage was done by former Guyana Under-19 left-arm spinner Kassim Khan who claimed 6-23 to help give his team a 33-run win, their third consecutive win of the tournament.

Batman Joshua Ramsammy was the only Upper Corentyne player to resist with 44 as all-rounder Sharaz Ramcharran supported Khan’s haul with figures of 2-37 for the leaders.

East Bank and Essequibo had all three of their days washed out at Everest.
