The Guyana National Industrial Corporation (GNIC) ended day one of the weekend’s lone GISE/Star Party Rental/ Trophy Stall Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) first-division, two-day competition on 125 – 3, 48 runs adrift from the Guyana Defence Force’s (GDF) first inning score when play was called yesterday at the Everest.
The day began with GDF winning the toss and electing to take the first strike.
They were, however, dismissed for 173 after being earlier reduced to 90 – 5. David Rajmangal, who laced three fours and two maximums in a knock of 51 was the main contributor. He got support from Terry Fraser, 27, and Wayne Joseph, 19.
Seamer Leon Sinclair bagged 4 for 37 from 12 overs while
former West Indies off-spinner Clyde Butts took 3 for 34 from 14 overs.
GNIC, in reply, lost the early wicket of their most dependable batsman Ryan Shun (0) who was caught by wicketkeeper Dexter Solomon off the bowling of Jeremiah Harris.
Fellow opener David Dick held on and was unbeaten on 73 at the close. He featured in an 87-run, third-wicket stand with Primchand Sookdeo (30) who was dismissed in the final over of the day’s play.
The other man dismissed was skipper Ovid Richardson (18).
Harris took 2-15 while Paul O’Neal supported with the wicket of Sookdeo. Play resumes at 9:00 today.
