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.

The Guyana Jaguars raced to an eight-wicket win over the Windward Island Volcanoes at the Providence Stadium Sunday despite a gritty century from former Windies batsman Kirk Edwards.

Windward Islands Volcanoes were dealt a late blow in their desperate bid to force a result against defending champion Guyana Jaguars, when experienced batsman Devon Smith was sent packing in the West Indies Championship at Providence Stadium on Saturday.

Smith had looked set after putting together a patient 65 from 128 balls but was dismissed in the 44th over of the day after a tight bowling spell from Romario Shepherd.

Beginning the day at 4 for 63, the Windward Islands managed to post 210 all out, thanks in huge part to Alick Athanaze’s determined 66 from 114 balls.  The Volacanoes were, however, left some 243 runs short of the Jaguars first innings total of 459 for 9.

Forced to follow-on, things looked bleak for the Windwards when opener Taryck Gabriel (16) was dismissed after being caught by Anthony Bramble off the bowling of Sherfane Rutherfod.  Smith was, however, joined by Cato at the crease and two put on 75 runs for the second wicket to give the Volcanoes some hope before Cato was caught, again by Bramble, off the bowling of Keemo Paul.

Smith was then joined by Kirk Edwards at the crease, but the pair only managed 28 for the third wicket, before Bramble took another key catch.  This time it was the dangerman Smith off the bowling of Romario Shepherd.  Edwards (40) and Kavem Hodge will begin the fourth day at 167 for 3 and the Volcanoes still trailing by 76 runs.  

 

A measly four-for from pacer Keemo Paul left the Windwards Islands Volcanoes runs chase in tatters on day two of the West Indies Championship at Providence Stadium.

Resuming the day in a strong position at 307 for 6, Tagenarine Chanderpaul went on to score his second first-class century to anchor the Guyana Jaguars eventual tally of 452 for 9.  Romario Shepherd, who opened the day at the crease with Chanderpaul, made a healthy contribution of his own, going on to score 72 as the two partnered to make 121 for the seventh wicket.

In response to the daunting total, the Windwards were in early trouble after losing the typically obdurate Devon Smith in the 10th over after he was caught by Griffith to become Paul’s first victim. 

Next, at the crease, Roland Cato made 14 off 15 deliveries before himself being caught by Griffiths off Paul and Kirk Edwards endured an identical fate to leave the Volcanoes struggling at 4 for 63.

Kavem Hodge would be Paul’s final victim, as he was dismissed without scoring after being gobbled up Anthony Bramble.  Paul ended the innings with figures of 4 for 24.

Alick Athanaze (25) and Dennis Smith (3) will resume the day as the team’s not out batsmen.

A sizzling century from middle-order batsman Anthony Bramble put Guyana Jaguars in a strong position against Windward Island Volcanoes in the West Indies Championship at Providence Stadium on Thursday.

At stumps, the Guyana Jaguars were 307 for 6 off 90 overs, with Tagenarine Chanderpaul (71) and Romario Shepherd (5) the not out batsmen at the crease.  Earlier, Bramble slammed 168 from 151 balls in an innings that included 6 sixes and a remarkable 17 fours.

The Jaguars found themselves in early trouble after Trenton Griffith became the first of Josh Thomas’ three wickets.  Next, at the crease, Leon Johnson only lasted six balls and made 5 runs before being sent back to the pavilion when he was caught by Kavem Hodge off the bowling of Sherman Lewis.  Shimron Hetmyer joined Chanderpaul at the crease and added 26 runs before being caught by Devon Smith off the bowling of Ray Jordan.

Bramble then joined Chanderpaul at the crease and the pair put on 209 runs for the fourth wicket.  The partnership ended when Bramble was caught by Smith again off Thomas. 

Thomas ended with the Volcanoes best figures after claiming 3 for 62.  Sherman Lewis and Ray Jordan both claimed one wicket each.
