Shivnarine Chanderpaul was the only Guyana batsman to make more than 20, while Dwayne Smith and Sulieman Benn took two wickets each for Barbados.

Steven Jacobs, Veerasammy Permaul and Christopher Barnwell took two wickets each for Guyana. There were three run-outs in the Barbados innings as well, and only Jonathan Carter and Shane Dowrich made more than 15.
