Barker grabs six as Police found wanting 

—Leitch strokes half century

 Skipper Nichosie Barker celebrates one wicket 3

Malteenoes Sports Club (MSC), ended day one of their Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA), GISE, Star Party Rental and Trophy Stall first division two-day match, against the Police Sports Club (PSC) on 4-0, trailing by 152 runs when play was called at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC). 

 The day was a shortened one after early morning showers washed out the first two sessions. MSC then won the toss and inviting PSC to bat. 

 Skipper Nichosie Barker led his side’s efforts by grabbing 6-49 from 13.3 overs – his second five-for in as many matches- to dismiss Police for 156 in 35.3 overs. 

 Barker, whose excellent spell caused PSC’s middle and lower order plenty of misery, received support from seamer Rawl Merell (2-20) who accounted for the early demise of Kevon Boodie (10) and Andrew Lyght (9). 

 Kevin Leitch (55), however, smacked three fours and five sixes in a brisk half-century which was backed up by Jason Heliger (32) to push PSC over the past the 150-run mark. 

 MSC, in their first innings response, ended on 4-0 in fading light after seeing off a testing spell from seamer Raun Johnson.
