Guyana Jaguars strengthen lead on PCL table
After rebounding from back-to-back defeats to beat Jamaica Scorpions by seven wickets last weekend, defending champions Guyana Jaguars have strengthened their position at the top of Cricket West Indies’ Professional Cricket League (PCL) Regional Four-day points table.
The win, secured on Sunday at Providence, has placed Jaguars firmly ahead of the other teams, surging to 112.4 points, with three rounds to go. It was the Jaguars fifth victory of the season, and it was orchestrated by twin fifties from skipper Leon Johnson, whose performance had come under scrutiny prior to this round.
Leeward Islands Hurricanes, who handed Jaguars one of their two defeats this season, are second on 83.2 points.
Windward Islands Volcanoes are third on 75 points, followed by Barbados Pride on 73.6, Jamaica Scorpions on 59 and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the cellar position on 58.8.
The teams will have a rest this weekend, and return for eighth round action, starting February 21.
