PCL: Guyana Jaguars still lead points table despite defeat


Despite a two-wicket defeat at the hands of Leeward Islands Hurricanes in fifth round action of Cricket West Indies’ Professional Cricket League (PCL) Regional Four-day championship, defending champions Guyana Jaguars are still on course to claiming a fifth straight title.

In a top-of-the-table clash last weekend at Providence, the Hurricanes, on the back of Montcin Hodge’s spectacular 127, his second hundred this season, chased down 291 in fading light to snap the Jaguars winning streak, which stood at four matches heading into the contest.

After five matches this season, the Leon Johnson-led Jaguars have accumulated 85.6 points, way ahead of the pack. Hurricanes though, made good strides in this round, moving up to 59.8 points in second spot and closing the gap on the Jaguars.

Hurricanes however, have played one less game. Barbados Pride, with two wins and two losses from four games, sit in third spot on 49.6 points, followed by Windward Islands Volcanoes on 48.4 points, garnered from five matches (two wins and three defeats).

Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and Jamaica Scorpions with one win and three defeats each from four games, occupy the bottom rungs of the ladder with 33 and 32.6 points respectively.

Following a break this weekend, the teams will assemble again from January 31 to February 3 for round six action.

Leeward Islands Hurricanes will face Jamaica Scorpions in a day/night contest, starting at 14:00h daily, at Warner Park, St. Kitts; Trinidad and Tobago Red Force will have home advantage against Guyana Jaguars; and Windward Islands Volcanoes will travel to Kensington Oval to take on host Barbados Pride.
