Lawrence Bassant slammed 118 (15×4 5×6) and Latchman Roopchand 74 (4×4 8×6) to guide Gangaram Strykers to a mammoth 354 for 8 in 40 overs against Celebrity Times, who did not help their own cause by conceding 61 extras, when play in the New Building Society Second Division cricket competition continued in the Ancient County.

Celebrity Times, not to be undone, gave a good chase with opening batsmen David Looknauth (72) and Arshad Farik (69) putting on 154 for the opening stand in just 14.1 overs. Farik and Totaram Seenanan chipped in to take the score to 238 before both fell in quick succession, Seenanan departing for 75. Chaitram Budhu then picked up the mantle to keep his team in the hunt, but he ran out of partners as Celebrity Times fell short of the winning target by a mere 24 runs. Budhu ended on 57 (5×4 5×6). Off spinner Naresh Dhanraj led the bowling with 4 for 51 for Strykers.

No. 68 Challengers opening batsman Munesh Lalu stroked 67 (2×4 7×6) to lead his side to 220 all out in 30.2 overs against No. 35 Young Adventurers who were sent packing for 118 in reply, Challengers left arm spinner Javindra Baijnauth grabbing 5 for 37.
