PCL: Singh, Barnwell give Jaguars lead against Hurricanes
Vishual Singh and Christopher Barnwell played crucial knocks on Friday to give four-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars an important 38-run lead over Leeward Islands Hurricanes by stumps on day two in Antigua.
The two sides are contesting round two of Cricket West Indies’ Professional Cricket League Regional Four-day championship.
Responding to Hurricanes first innings’ 182, Jaguars, resuming on 36-2, closed the second day on 220-5, thanks largely to a 69-run fifth wicket partnership between Singh and Barnwell.
Jaguars had slipped to 128-4 when opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul’s vigil of 29 off 156 balls ended, before the pair joined forces. Singh remained unbeaten at stumps on 73 off 168 balls, while Barnwell made 46.
The partnership took Jaguars past Hurricanes total, before Anthony Bramble (15*) joined Singh to take the visitors to the close without any further loss.
Earlier, Trevon Griffith (12), Leon Johnson (6) and Clinton Pestano (25) were the other batsmen dismissed.
In the other games: Barbados Pride 167 and 93-3 v Jamaica Scorpions 248; and Windward Islands Volcanoes 206 and 167-1 v Trinidad and Tobago Red Force 225.
