Citing the development of regional cricket via the professional cricket league as his main reason, recently retired Windies veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul is backing the incumbent Dave Cameron to serve another term as CWI president.

The Guyana Jaguars are inches away from a fifth-straight West Indies Championship title after easing to a six-wicket victory over the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at the Providence Stadium in their home country on Saturday. 

The Leeward Islands Hurricanes continued to win over the weekend in the hopes they could catch a slipping Guyana Jaguars, however the defending champions have not slowed with a big win over the Barbados Pride. 

Off-spinner Akim Fraser took four wickets on debut as the Jamaica Scorpions were locked in a tense battle at for first-innings honours at stumps on day one of their match against the Guyana Jaguars at Sabina Park.

Still smarting from their loss to the Guyana Jaguars a fortnight ago, the Jamaica Scorpions have revenge on their mind when they host the table-topping side at Sabina Park February 21 to 24 in the Windies Championships.

Middle-order batsman Leon Johnson cracked an unbeaten half-century as the Guyana Jaguars wasted little time in formalizing a 7-wicket win over the Jamaica Scorpions at Providence Stadium on Sunday.

After the previous day’s demolition job by spinner Gudakesh Motie, the Jaguars needed just 145 runs to snap a three-match losing streak.  Overnight batsman Hemraj added another 26 runs before he was caught by Brandon King off the bowling of Jerome Taylor.

Sherfane Rutherford added another 5 to the total after facing 13 deliveries but he was dismissed by Derval Green.

Opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul seemed poised to stay at the crease to see the Jaguars to the meagre total but was out lbw to Kenroy Williams after making 33 from 73 balls.  The young batsman was involved in partnerships with Hemraj, Rutherford and Johnson whose 61 came from 86 balls and included 10 fours and one six.  Vishaul Sigh was also left not out on 26 from 57 balls.  Jerome Taylor, Derval Green and Kenroy Williams each took a wicket in the second innings.

 

West Indies Championship title holders, the Guyana Jaguars just need 145 runs to claim their first win in their last three games this season after a poor second innings from the Jamaica Scorpions at the Providence Stadium left the door open for them. 

A 101-run fourth-wicket stand between Captain Leon Johnson and Vishual Singh have left the match between the Jamaica Scorpions and Guyana Jaguars interestingly poised at stumps on Day 2 of their West Indies Championship match at the Providence Stadium on Friday.

Defending champions of the West Indies Championship, the Guyana Jaguars must have thought they were in for an easy day, but a lower-order stand from the Jamaica Scorpions of 90 have meant they were made to wait. 

The once-invincible Guyana Jaguars have been going through a little slump in the West Indies Championship recently, highlighted on Saturday by a 93-run defeat at the hands of the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force. 

Jermaine Blackwood and Rovman Powell have been selected to a 13-man Jamaica Scorpions squad that left Jamaica on Monday for St. Kitts where they play the Leeward Islands Hurricanes starting January 31.

A century stand between Montcin Hodge and Keacy Carty provided the platform for the Leeward Islands Hurricanes to pull off a two-wicket win over defending champions Guyana Jaguars at Providence Stadium of Sunday.

A four-wicket haul from burly spinner Rahkeem Cornwall has given Leeward Islands Hurricane a fighting chance but they will have plenty of work to do to get a result against the Guyana Jaguars in the West Indies Championship at Providence Stadium.

At stumps on day three the Hurricanes were 32 for one, needing a further 259 to topple the defending champion Jaguars.  The Guyana based team seemed poised for a massive target after dismissing the Leewards for 175 in their first response, still some 21 runs short of the first innings total of 196.

At 50 for 0 the Jaguars seemed well on their way to compiling an unassailable target but Cornwall had other ideas.  Adding to the wickets of Trevon Griffith and Leon Johnson who he dismissed in the last hour of play on the previous day, Cornwall then accounted for the seemingly settled Tagenarine Chanderpaul who was dismissed for 40 off 170 balls. 

The wicket of Anthony Bramble was then added to the heap as he was dismissed lbw in Cornwall’s very next over to leave the Jaguars rattled at 5 for 136.  A seventh-wicket stand between Clinton Pestado (46) and Keemo Paul (22) settled things somewhat as the pair combined were worth 57. 

The partnership was broken when Paul was dismissed by Sheno Berridge and Cornwall returned to account for Pestado.  The spinner ended the innings with overall figures of 6 for 70.

In reply, the Leewards Kieran Powell was dismissed for 7 when he was bowled by Paul.  Motcin Hodge and Keacy Carty will return as the not out batsmen.

Rahkeem Cornwall’s four-wicket haul and three from Damion Jacobs reduced defending champions Guyana Jaguars to 196 all over during Thursday’s first day of round four of the West Indies Championships at Providence.

Former West Indies batsman Dr Shivnarine Chanderpaul has been appointed interim assistant coach of the Guyana Jaguars with immediate effect.
