Clarkson, Cummings lead Rainbow
GEORGETOWN, GUYANA - The Norman Singh Memorial Second Division 20-over cricket competition for teams in West Berbice continued recently with Rainbow Generation of Seafield, Achiever of Lovely Lass and Cotton Tree Die Hard all winning their latest matches to advance to the next round of the competition.

Medium pacer Chris Clarkson took 5 for 14 from two overs to help Rainbow Generation restrict Exhowa to 104 runs in 18 overs. Then Rainbow’s opening batsman, Dunston Cummings then slammed 50 not out (5×4, 2×6) to guide them to an eight-wicket victory.
Roshan Gaffoor’s 2 for 10 from four overs and 35 spearheaded Cotton Tree Die Hard to a seven-wicket win over No 3
