Georgetown, Guyana - A responsible 58 by man-of-the-match Jonathan Foo led Albion to a four-wicket win over the Rest of Berbice in a feature 50-Over match played at Albion yesterday after reaching 173-6 in 48.2 overs in reply to the 172 all out in 49.2 overs made by the Rest of Berbice.

The Rest of Berbice had a good start of 46 between Shimron Hetmyer and Rafael Estriado before losing Estriado for 14 and Hetmyer for 27.

Veerasammy Permaul took 3-29 while Gudakesh Motie (2-23), Narsingh Deonarine (2-32) and Devendra Bishoo (2-36) did the damage for Albion who started slowly with Kandasammy Surujnarine and Balchand Baldeo putting on 28 in 7.5 overs before Surujnarine (11) was removed by pacer Raun Johnson who soon got rid of Baldeo (10).

Foo joined forces with Deonarine and put together 61 in 20 overs before Deonarine was caught and bowled by Ramoo for 28. David Latchaya and Foo put together 62 for the fourth wicket before Foo departed off Ramoo but Albion completed the formalities as Latchaya remained unbeaten on 41.
