Canal batted first and the opening pair of Amar Singh
and Danny Singh put on a 67 runs partnership in 7 overs before Danny
(28) was caught of Caesar’s bowling. Anand Singh and Amar continued
without further loss to bring the score to 103 for 1 in 10 overs.
After Baldeo was out caught of Dondos, Harriprashad (10) soon follow caught off Boscom, Deodat went without scoring and Basil (2) was bowled by Dotson (Blue). Vick (6) and Amit Persaud (7) added 18 runs to the total before both were stumped by wicketkeeper Michael Persaud of Dondo’s bowling.

Boscom 3 for 35, Caesars 2 for 50 and Dotson chipped in with 1 for 33.
Sheffield began their innings in a very attacking manner with Michael Persaud and Wayne Crackwell blasting boundaries from Baldeo’s first over which cost 12 runs. Amar Singh was treated with the same aggression from the batsmen as his first over cost 19 runs as he seemed to be overpowered and just took one step and bowled the ball to finish the over.
A bowling change was made in the third over and Harriprashad was introduced into the attack. Canal got the break through that they needed, after a running mixed up between Persaud and Crackwell in the fifth over and a good throw from James at square leg to the bowlers end which found Persaud (18) well short of his crease.
Crackwell continued to bat well and was hitting the ball with powerful strokes, but Amar struck twice in his third and fourth over removing Crackwell (31) and A. Dotson (6). The Sheffield skipper E. Dotson (Blue) came to the crease and looked in fine form stroking the ball well; he played two powerful cover drives to the boundary of Harriprashad before he was caught off the same bowler for 9 runs. Sheffield was causing some problems for Canal as the score raced to 95 for 4 after 10 overs.
After the water break Canal wanted to take no chance with the game with dark rain clouds hanging over head they used two of their fastest bowler to wrap up the remaining batsmen. Anand Singh and Amit Persaud put on a fiery spell of bowling claiming the remaining six wickets for another 37 runs ending the game in the sixteenth over.
Anand had Caesars (17) and Joseph (2) caught and Adolph (20) bowled. Persaud bowled Dondos (3) and Nigel (16) was out caught, Boscom (2) was run out leaving Douglas not out without scoring. Anand spearheading the bowling with 3 for 8, Amit Persaud took 2 for 21, Amar 2 for 28 and Harriprashad 1 for 27.
