Rain ruins cricket games

Guyana Times article.

Georgetown, Guyana - Rain forced the abandonment of the second day’s play in the Demerara Cricket Board’s three-day trial match on Friday at the Everest Cricket Club ground.

Persistent overnight and early morning showers left sections of the ground under water, preventing the possibility of play on day two.

Today is the final day and play is schedule to start at 09:00 hours, weather permitting. On the opening day on Thursday, Christopher Barnwell scored an unbeaten 105 to guide his team to 358-9against Leon’s Johnson’s XI.

The game is being used to select the best possible team to represent Demerara at the upcoming Guyana Cricket Board senior inter-county four-day competition, slated to begin on November 28.

Meanwhile, the semi-finals of the Demerara Cricket Board’s Over-40, 20/20 competition sponsored by Raj Singh Insurance Brokers and Trophy Stall has been rescheduled for next Wednesday.

The matches were planned for Friday at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) and the Enmore Community Centre (ECC) grounds. However, both venues were unplayable due to wet outfields.

The games have been rescheduled to next Wednesday with Lower East Coast Bulls and West Bank Demerara Mavericks playing at the DCC ground and Upper East Coast Tigers and West Coast Demerara Seals meeting at the ECC ground. Both matches will commence at 13:00 hours.
