A FINE seventh-wicket partnership of 114 between Mohamed Feroze (71) and John Seerattan (63) enabled Essequibo to force a draw with Berbice in the semi-final of the Jones Cup Inter-County cricket series at GCC ground yesterday.
A GREAT fight is anticipated when cup-holders, Demerara clash with Berbice in the Jones Cup final, for the emblem of Inter-County Cricket supremacy, at Georgetown Cricket Club ground, Bourda, today. The five-day match continues tomorrow, Sunday, Monday and concludes on Tuesday.
What is the Inter-County Competition, the younger cricketers and fans may wonder. To get a good perspective I would have to resort to the history of cricket in Guyana (British Guiana), and tid-bits about the three counties.
