Essequibo and Select XI to square off at Providence from Wednesday
Essequibo and the Select XI will get their first taste of competitive on-field action in the Guyana Cricket Board’s Senior Inter-County Four-Day competition from Wednesday (March 1) at the National Stadium, Providence.
The Guyana Cricket Board on Monday afternoon announced the change in fixture, after the Enmore Community Centre ground, which was originally intended to host the game from Saturday last, was deemed not in condition for play following rainfall over last couple of days.
The other first round game between Berbice and Demerara is currently ongoing at the National Stadium, Providence, and will end today (Tuesday).
