Super50: Joseph (4-24), Hetmyer (67*) lead Jaguars rout of Volcanoes
Guyana Jaguars ended the round-robin phase of the CG Insurance Super50 Cup with a thumping nine-wicket win over Windward Islands Volcanoes to solidify their position at number two on the point standings.
Chasing 154 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Jaguars raced to 155-1 in 28.4 overs with Shimron Hetmyer cracking 67 not out off 59 balls, his second half-century of the competition.
The left-hander smashed four sixes and three fours in the final game of the preliminary phase of the tournament on Monday.
He added an unbroken 93 with opener Tevin Imlach, who ended on 37 off 81 balls to follow up his 38 in the last game against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force.
Chandrapaul Hemraj was the lone wicket to fall, for 41 off 32 balls (7x4s, 1×6) in an opening stand of 62 in 9.4 overs with Imlach.
Earlier, fast bowler Keon Joseph bagged 4-24, his best returns in List A cricket, and Hemraj 2-11 as Volcanoes recovered from 22-4 to post 153.
Gudakesh Motie, Christopher Barnwell and Ramaal Lewis picked up a wicket each, as only Emmanuel Stewart (46), Kevin Stoute (41) and Keron Cottoy (27) got going for the Volcanoes.
Joseph was named Man-of-the-Match.
The win was Jaguars fourth in five games, and they finish only behind Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, who won all their games. Volcanoes and Jamaica Scorpions are the other teams in the semi-finals, set for later this week.
