Cricinfo staff

A three-hour delayed start due to overnight rain denied any chances of a result as the match between Guyana and Leeward Islands ended in a draw at St Maarten. Guyana opted not to enforce the follow-on after dismissing Leewards for 349 and instead chose to bat out the rest of the day. Shivnarine Chanderpaul, the captain, and Narsingh Deonarine played out the 33 overs remaining, scoring 65 not out and 58 not out respectively. Guyana finished on 159 for 2, with Adam Sanford taking both wickets.

Earlier, Deonarine took the last three Leeward Islands' wickets to finish with his career-best figures of 5 for 94 from 28.4 overs. With this draw, Guyana gain six points for the first-innings lead. Krishna Arjune picked up the Man-of-the-Match award for his innings of 157.
