Earlier, Georgetown, after winning the toss and electing to bat, went to lunch in a spot of bother with the score on 138 – 5. Openers Shemroy Barrington (39) and Raymond Perez (41) squandered good starts and failed to record significant scores.

However, the City Side was rescued by Kellon Carmichael (39), and number eleven Travis Mohammed who top scored with 45 off 42 deliveries, to carry their side to 274 all out in the 72nd over.

Off-spinner Hooper who grabbed three of the five wickets to fall before lunch, finished with 5 – 58, as leg-spinner Shawn Perreira supported with 2 – 65.

Play resumes at 9:30 today.
