At DCC, the President XI won the toss and asked Essequibo to bat. Openers Norman and Royan Federicks added 120 for the first wicket, rotating the strike and dispatching the bad balls to the boundary.
Royan was the first to go when he was bowled by pacer Joshua Wade for 62 (4×4, 3×6). Dillon Heyliger then joined Norman and put on a second wicket stand of 89. The 200 came up in the 36th over before Norman was bowled by Elton Baker for 75 (3×4, 3×6). Heyliger reached his half century with a single to long off and dominated a 49-run 3rd wicket stand with Ricardo Adams before he was dismissed for 75 (2×4, 6×6).
The left-handed Adams made the President XI pay dearly for dropping him on 6, by hitting Wade, Jitendra Sookdeo and Baker for sixes. His fifty, which came with a six over mid wicket off Baker, came in 24 balls and included one four and four sixes. He was then caught off Baker, trying to clear the ropes at mid wicket one delivery later.
Essequibo then lost Jason Heyliger for 21 and Anthony Adams for 8, but Wayne Osborne with 14 not out (2×6) and Mark Tyrell with 1 not out saw them to a challenging 344-7 off their allotted overs. Baker had 3-51 off 5 overs and Butts 2-42 off 10. Wade and Clements had 1 each.
Tagenarine Chanderpaul then pulled Dillon Heyliger through mid wicket for four in the first over then spanked Roopesh Motilall for consecutive boundaries in the second over as he added 21 for the opening stand with Anthony Bramble when the President XI began their reply. Motilall soon had Bramble leg before for 5 in the 4th over.
Kevon Boodie, who opened his account with a straight drive off Dillon Heyliger for four, put together 52 for the second wicket before he was caught off Anthony Adams for 26 (3×4,1×6).
Chanderpaul reached his half century with a maximum off Anthony Adams before Herry Green had Baker caught and bowled for 5, at 95. Devon Clements was then bowled by Ricardo Adams for 17, at 112. The President XI then lost Jitendra Sookdeo for 19, Dexter Solomon for 0, Wade for 0 and Butts for 0 in quick succession, to leave the score at 158-7.
However Brandon Bess, who ended unbeaten on 16, ensured Chanderpaul reached a well-deserved century with a six over mid wicket off Green. Chanderpaul, who played shots on both sides of the wicket, finished unbeaten on 103 (13x4 3x6), as the President XI closed their innings on 196-8 in 50 overs.
Jason Heyliger had 3-24 off 10 overs, while Ricardo, Anthony and Herry Green had one each as Essequibo won the match by 148 runs.
Demerara received a trophy and $200,000, while Tagenarine Chanderpaul collected the Most Valuable Player award. Speaking at the presentation ceremony at the Everest Cricket Club, Vice President of the GCB Fizul Bacchus congratulated Demerara for winning the tournament.
