Young Warriors v Tucber Park

In reply, Tucber Park raced away, reaching the target in 17.3 overs to finish on 62-3. Berbice under 19 batsman, Tucber Park captain Garfield Benjamin, top scored
with an unbeaten 25, and Nicholas Veren scored 14 not out to see Tucber Park register a seven wicket win in their unbeaten 2019, under 19 campaign.
