Raymon Reifer was on song in Providence, combining his fourth five-for with a maiden century, to help Guyana victory by an innings and 81 runs. Much of that result was the consequence of a poor first innings for Trinidad & Tobago who, after winning the toss, were bundled out for 135. There were five ducks in the innings, with Reifer dealing out three of them to finish with 5 for 40.

Another star turn followed, this time with the bat. He had watched his team cruise to 109 for 0 and then falter to 198 for 5. That was when Reifer walked in. With 19-year old Sherfane Rutherford (93) and former Under-19 fast bowler Keemo Paul (53) for company, led a defining lower-order charge and finished unbeaten on 108 from 217 balls when the declaration came with the score at 540 for 9.

Trinidad & Tobago put in a much improved performance in the second innings, with two of the men who made ducks in the first, Jason Mohammed and Tion Webster, scoring 103 and 77 respectively. But it was still not enough. Guyana wrapped up the win - their sixth in nine matches - with Paul taking 3 for 118
