However, former Guyana Under-19 left-arm spinner Kassim Khan produced a wonderful spell of spin bowling to claim 6-23 as Upper Corentyne folded for 114, chasing 148 for victory. Joshua Ramsammy was the only batsman to offer any resistance with a patient 44. Sharaz Ramsarran also had 2-37, bowling for Lower Corentyne.
