Guyana Jaguars back in the lead


After a commanding victory over Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Providence, the Guyana Jaguars have reclaimed the number one spot in Cricket West Indies’ Regional Four-day championship.

The Jaguars, five-time defending champions, had taken the lead after an opening 10-wicket win over Leeward Islands Hurricanes, but slipped to fourth after losing to Barbados Pride by seven wickets in round two.

In round three, where they faced off with Red Force, the Jaguars won by an imposing 219 runs and are just ahead of Pride. The Jaguars’ latest match would be remembered for left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul becoming the latest West Indian to capture 500 First-Class wickets.

Jaguars are on 44.6 points, marginally ahead of Pride on 44.4. Volcanoes are third on 32.8, followed Red Force on 32.6, Hurricanes on 26.6 and Jamaica Scorpions on 21.2.

The tournament is currently in the first of three breaks and will resume on February 6. Jaguars will play Scorpions at Providence, Hurricanes will tackle Pride at Warner Park and Volcanoes will face Red Force at Windsor Park.
