(Day 1 Report based on Kaieteur News article.)

President XI opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul slammed a fine half century against Berbice as the Guyana Cricket Board Senior 4-day Inter-County tournament got underway yesterday with two matches.

At DCC, the President XI won the toss and elected to bat. Tagenarine Chanderpaul and fellow opener Krishna Arjune got them off to a bright start adding 80 for the opening stand with solid batting.

Arjune after hitting six fours and two sixes fell one short of a half century when he nicked a delivery from pacer Keon Joseph and was caught by wicketkeeper Jason Sinclair in the 23rd over. Joseph then trapped Kevon Boodie for 4 to make it 86-2. Clinton Pestano removed Jitendra Sookdeo without scoring and the President slipped to 91-3.

Chanderpaul and skipper Eugene La Fleur added 30 for the fourth wicket as they brought up their team’s triple figure in the 37th over in 157 minutes. Chanderpaul soon reached his fifty with consecutive boundaries through backward point before he was caught behind off left arm spinner Gudakesh Motie Kanhai without addition to his score. His half century came off 126 balls and contained five fours and a six.

The President's XI then lost Devon Clements who was caught at the wicket off Eon Hooper for 3 and La Fleur caught off Kanhai for 37 which came off 63 and included six fours. Raj Nanan and Anthony Bramble saw them to tea without further loss at 155.

Upon resumption Nanan was run out for 3 to leave the score on 173. Bramble soon followed caught off Kanhai for 22 before Seon Daniels edged Pestano behind for 4 and Gilford Moore had his stumps knocked over by the same bowler for a duck as President XI were bowled out for 182 in 70.4 overs. Kanhai 3-28, Pestano 3-55 and Joseph 2-37 were the main wicket takers for Berbice who commence their innings today.


(Day 2 Report based on Kaieteur News article.)

Opener Sewnarine Chattergoon slammed an attractive century as Berbice closed the second day of their Guyana Cricket Board Senior 4 day inter county match against the President XI in a comfortable position at 267-3.

Chattergoon and fellow opener Richard Ramdeen laid the foundation for a huge GT&T Berbice total with an opening stand of 87 with enterprising batting on a flat Demerara Cricket Club pitch. Ramdeen, who hardly played a false stroke, hit five fours and two sixes before he was leg before to Collins Butts for 47.

Chattergoon and Assad Fudadin took the score to 163 with a second wicket of 76. Fudadin, after hitting two fours, was bowled by Raj Nanan as he played over a delivery that kept low.

Chattergoon soon brought up his half century with a boundary off Nanan off 114 balls in 145 minutes and dominated a third wicket stand of 93 with Gajanand Singh. The Albion left-hander mixed aggression with defense and executed some lovely shots both off the back and front foot, and eventually reached his century off 313 balls before he was caught off Butts for 114 which contained eleven fours and four sixes.

Singh, another left hander, stroked five fours and ended the day on an unbeaten 57 which came off 101 deliveries. With him is Anthony D’Andrade not out on 2. Butts has so far taken 2-53 from 39 overs.


(Day 3 Report based on Kaieteur News article.)

Gajanand Singh and Anthony D’Andrade began the day on 57 and 2 respectively, with GT&T Berbice on 267-3. Singh was the first to go, lbw to pacer Gilford Moore for 65 (7×4). Pacer Seon Daniels had D’Andrade lbw for 13 at 328 before Delbert Hicks and Jason Sinclair added 54 for the 6th wicket with sensible batting. Hincks eventually departed for 68 (9x4, 2x6) with the score at 382.

Sinclair added a further 26 with Clinton Pestano before the latter went for 20. Eon Hooper soon followed without scoring as Berbice declared their first innings on 424-8 with Sinclair unbeaten on 26 and Gudakesh Motie Kanhai on 2. Daniels was the leading wicket taker for the President’s XI with 3-82, while Collins Butts had 2-60. Nanan, Clements and Moore took one each.

The President’s XI, needing to score 241 to make Berbice bat again, lost Krishna Arjune for 1 and Tagenarine Chanderpaul for 8, to be at 20-2 in their second innings. Jitendra Sookdeo and Anthony Bramble carried them to 47 before Sookdeo was caught and bowled by Kanhai for 17. Keon Joseph then removed Kevon Boodie for 3 and Kanhai dismissed  Clements for 5, to leave the total at 85-5.

Bramble, who looked rock solid, and Eugene La Fleur put on 50 for the 6th wicket but, just before stumps,  Berbice skipper Assad Fudadin asked part-time spinner Sewnarine Chattergoon to bowl the last over. Chattergoon had La Fleur caught and bowled off the first ball for 13. The President’s XI closed the day on 135-6 after facing 43.1 overs with Bramble unbeaten on 78 (13×4).

Kanhai has so far taken 2 wickets, while Joseph, Pestano, Hooper and Chattergoon have one each. The game continues today.


(Day 4 Report based on Kaieteur News article.)

A penetrative spell of fast bowling by Keon Joseph guided GT&T Berbice to an innings and 53 run victory over the President’s XI as the first round of the Guyana Cricket Board Senior 4-day Inter County tournament concluded.

The President’s XI, needing to score 242 to make GT&T Berbice bat again, resumed on their overnight score of 135-6 with Anthony Bramble unbeaten on 78 and Raj Nanan on 0. They took the score to 150 before Joseph had Nanan caught by wicketkeeper Jason Sinclair for a duck.

Bramble, however, continued from where he left off the previous day, taking the fight to the opposition with aggressive batting but, just as he appeared well set for a century, Joseph who bowled with pace on the flat track, knocked over  his stumps for a well played 96 (16x4, 130 balls, 176 minutes). He departed with the score at 155.

Joseph, a former West Indies Under-19 fast bowler, then had Seon Daniels (0) and Gilford Moore (3) caught behind as the President’s XI were bowled out for 188 in 59 overs in the first session of the fourth and final day. Collis Butts ended unbeaten on 25 (5×4) as Joseph finished with 5-65 and Gudakesh Motie Kanhai 2-57.
