Playing at the Malteenoes Sports Club on Thomas Lands in Georgetown, Demerara controlled the contest for the most part, posting a formidable 273 before skittling out Essequibo for just 88.

Demerara would have been disappointed falling short of a 300-plus total, given the fine opening partnership by Mangru and the talented Naomi Barkoye. The pair added 109 in 17.3 overs before Barkoye was run out for 27 off 50 balls (4x4s). Tilleya Madramootoo fell soon after without scoring, paving the way for a 57-run partnership between Mangru and Fraser for the third wicket.

The diminutive Mangru, who played a solitary ODI for West Indies against South Africa in February 2022, struck a career-best 81 off 82 balls, an innings that included seven fours and two sixes. The left-handed Fraser, who has played 12 ODIs and 12 T20Is for West Indies, slammed five fours and three sixes in a rapid 68 off 52 balls, while extras contributed 60 to the total, 46 of which were wides. Bowling for Essequibo, Yonette Welcome took 3-48 and Nikesha Narine 2-65.

Off-spinner Jordon picked up 4-16 off four overs, while leg-spinner Latchman had 4-25 off four. The 50-over competition will continue on Sunday (February 11) with Essequibo against Berbice at the Meten-Meer-Zorg ground, followed by the final round between Demerara and Berbice on February 13 at Malteenoes.
