THE Guyana Jaguars’ seamers produced a sensational bowling display

THE Guyana Jaguars’ seamers produced a sensational bowling display to keep the three-time defending champions on track for victory against Barbados Pride in the fifth round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) four-day game at the National Stadium, Providence yesterday. Pacer Keemo Paul struck four vital blows while Sherefane Rutherford and Keon Joseph grabbed the other three wickets to leave the tourists facing a difficult final day. Leading by 20 runs, the Jaguars then rocked the visitors in their second innings, and when bad light stopped play, the Pride were tottering on 126-7, a lead of 106 runs. Paul claimed 4-38 in an incisive, 17.2-over spell while Rutherford had 2-40, and Joseph 1-23. Earlier, night-watchman Gudakesh Motie rose to the occasion, scoring a gritty unbeaten 72 from 147 balls, inclusive of ten fours and a six, as the hosts took a vital first innings advantage. Resuming the day on 180-4, the three-times defending champions progressed to 219, with veteran batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul (30) adding 15 to his overnight total before left-arm spinner, Jomel Warrican (3-91), removed both Chanderpaul and Anthony Bramble (0) off consecutive deliveries. The 43-year-old Chanderpaul was caught and bowled, while Bramble was adjudged leg before wicket. However, Motie, who resumed the day on three, shared a 45-run seventh-wicket partnership with Paul; Motie flourished as his innings progressed. His fifty came off 97 balls, but soon after the partnership was broken when Paul (19) was bowled by Kenroy Williams shortly before lunch. After the interval Rutherford joined forces with Motie and contributed a 34-ball 25, which took the hosts pass the visitors first innings 294, before off-spinner Ashley Nurse (3-33), claimed the final three wickets of Rutherford (25), Veerasammy Permaul (4), and Keon Joseph (0). With the pitch starting to show some variable bounce, the visitors then made a poor start to their second innings, when Joseph had Shayne Moseley caught in the slip corridor for five with just nine runs on the board. Fellow opener Anthony Alleyne and Shamar Brooks (22) attempted to resurrect the innings, but immediately after tea, Paul had also found just enough movement to trouble Brooks, who was bowled by a ball that shaped to swing away but then straightened to pass between bat and pad, to make it 37-2. The 19-year-old Paul then dismissed Kevin Stoute (11), who was undone by a good ball that moved away fractionally off the seam. Alleyne and Williams then survived a testing period until Alleyne went off Rutherford for a 77-ball 32. But the Jaguars were further inspired by Paul, who trapped Williams leg before wicket for 11, before he had Justin Greaves taken at the wicket for one. Rutherford then bowled Ashley Nurse (1), but Jonathan Carter (14 not out) and Mario Rampersaud (one not out), survived until play ended.

Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.
