Guyana Jaguars regain PCL top spot
Vishaul Singh struck an unbeaten half-century as reigning champions Guyana Jaguars brushed aside Jamaica Scorpions by seven wickets to regain top spot in the Regional four-day championship on Monday. Playing on the final day of their sixth round game at Sabina Park, Jaguars successfully chased down a target of 182 to depose Scorpions as leaders, with Singh ending unbeaten on 63.
They lost just one wicket – that of veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul for five – but Singh found an ally in Barbadian all-rounder Raymon Reifer to see Jaguars home in an unbroken 78-run, fourth wicket partnership.
Reifer, who was adjudged Man-of-the-Match for his fine all-rounder efforts in the contest, was unbeaten on 37. All told, Singh faced 103 deliveries in a trifle over three hours at the crease and struck eight fours, while fellow left-hander Reifer counted three fours and a six in a 63-ball innings.
Jaguars had resumed the day on 79 for two and benefitted initially from a 27-run partnership between Singh and Chanderpaul.
