The 2013 Universal DVD Club’s first division 20/20 cricket competition in Berbice continued on Sunday with three more rescheduled matches.
The batting performance of the tournament so far was registered by Police’s middle-order batsmen Philbert Willburgh who blasted 92 (4x4s, 11x6s) from just 60 balls to almost single-handedly take Police to a four-wicket victory over D’Edward, who made a decent 120-6 in a reduced 15 overs with Jaipaul Heeralall top scoring with 37. Willburgh’s knock has been the highest score in the competition so far.
D’Edward however, had an improvement in their fortunes in their second match of the day when they defeated Port Mourant Karibee Rice by four wickets. They were able to skittle out Port Mourant for a paltry 59, thanks mainly to outstanding bowling from medium-pacer Heeralall Bridgelall, who took 6-11 from 3.3 overs. D’Edward eventually won by four wickets.
Below are the summarised scores from the games played.
