(Day 1 Report based on a Kaieteur News article.)

Play on the first day of round two of the Guyana Cricket Board Senior 4-day Inter-county tournament was yesterday cut short by the rain.

At Wales, GT&T Berbice won the toss and inserted Essequibo, who were at 55-3 when rain stopped play just before lunch. Pacer Keon Joseph removed opener Royan Federicks for 5 at 11 and Clinton Pestano dismissed Norman Federicks for 7 and Wayne Osborne for 9, to leave the score at 27-3. Ricardo Adams on 6 not out, and Herrell Green on 14, added 27 for the fourth wicket before the interval.

Meanwhile, Dillon Heyliger, Kenzo Baksh and Roopesh Motilall were replaced by Kemo Paul, Mark Gonsalves and Mark Tyrell in the Essequibo team after sustaining injuries.

(Day 2 Report based on a Kaieteur News article.)

At Wales, Essequibo batsmen showed little fight against GT&T Berbice as they finished day two on 123-9 in 44 overs.

When play finally began after the tea interval, Essequibo resumed on their overnight score of 55-3 with Ricardo Adams on 6 and Herrell Green on 14. Adams was bowled by Eon Hooper off the second ball of the day’s play, without adding to the overnight score. Green and Surujpaul added 17 for the fifth wicket before Hooper bowled Green for 18.

Surujpaul soon departed when he was stumped off left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie Kanhai for 14.  Essequibo then lost debutant Kemo Paul (13), Anthony Adams (21) and Herry Green (3), before Mark Gonsalves on 10 and Mark Tyrell on 3, saw them to stumps. Kanhai has so far taken 3-27; he was supported by Hooper 2-23, Clinton Pestano 2-29 and Keon Joseph 1-22.

(Day 3 Report based on a Kaieteur News article.)

Essequibo grabbed first innings points from GT&T Berbice when play on Day 3 concluded.

When play finally got underway at the Wales Ground at 12:40hrs, Essequibo commenced their first innings on 123-9 with Mark Gonsalves 10 and Herry Green 3, they took the score to 140 before Gonsalves was bowled by Gudakesh Motie Kanhai for 17. Essequibo were all out in the first hour of play. Green was left not out on 13. Motie took 4-34, Eon Hooper 2-23 and Clinton Pestano 2-39.

Pacer Mark Tyrell then removed Sewnarine Chattergoon for 4 and Gajanand Singh for 3, before Kemo Paul had Ramdeen caught behind for 5 as Berbice slipped to 16-3. Skipper Assad Fudadin (11) was then bowled by Anthony Adams who also removed Anthony D’Andrade (11) at 57-5. Delbert Hicks and Jason Sinclair added 27 for the next wicket before Tyrell dismissed Sinclair for 17.

Berbice then lost the wickets of Pestano (2), Hicks (29), Hooper (1) and Joseph (0) to be all out for 90 in 47 overs. Tyrell bagged 6-14 while Adams took 2-35, Green 1-3 and Paul 1-10. Essequibo will start their second innings the next day.

(Day 4 Report based on a Kaieteur News article.)

GT&T Berbice rebounded after losing first innings points to beat a spirited Essequibo team by 5 wickets at Wales, when the second round of the Guyana Cricket Board Senior 4-day Inter County tournament concluded on Friday.

Leading by 50 runs, Essequibo skipper Royan Federicks was caught behind off Clinton Pestano for 12 with the score on 16. Keon Joseph then had Norman Federicks caught for 4 at 25 before Wayne Osborne and Ricardo added 19 for the third wicket. Adams was then stumped off Eon Hooper for 15, while Gudakesh Motie Kanhai dismissed Herrell Green for 0, as Essequibo slipped to 45-4.

Osborne was caught off Kanhai for 10 before Hooper removed Anthony Adams for 1 and Vijay Surajpaul for 11 in quick succession to leave Essequibo on 68-7. They never recovered despite the efforts of Kemo Paul who top-scored with 16 and Mark Gonsalves 10 and were bowled out 48 minutes before lunch for 91. Hooper 4-23 and Kanhai 4-33 were the pick of the bowlers, while Pestano and Joseph supported with 1 each.

Set 142 for victory with just over two sessions remaining, GT&T Berbice lost opener Richard Ramdeen who was caught by Ricardo Adams off Kemo Paul for 3 with the score at 11. Sewnarine Chattergoon and Gajanand Singh saw them to lunch without further loss at 33-1 with Chattergoon, who was dropped at deep mid wicket when at 7 off Paul, on 18 and Singh on 10.

After the break Mark Tyrell had Singh caught and bowled for 17 at 51. Assad Fudadin and Chattergoon added 25 for the 3rd wicket before Fudadin was lbw to Royan Federicks for 10. Anthony D’Andrade was then run out for 0 as Essequibo fought back.

Chattergoon and Delbert Hicks put on 36 for the 5th wicket with Chattergoon reaching his half century off 104 balls by cutting Herry Green through backward point for 2. Mark Tyrell had Chattergoon brilliantly caught at cover by Norman Federicks for 53 (3x4, 1x6) in the last over before tea.

After the interval Hicks and Jason Sinclair survived some nervous moments as they finished on 142-5 off 48 overs. Hicks ended on 40 (1×4,1×6) and Sinclair on 9. Tyrell took 2 wickets while Paul and Royan Federicks took 1 each for Essequibo, who would have rued their missed chance to dismiss Chattergoon.
