Jaguars Romp To Second Straight Win

Shillingford stars in Volcanoes victory over Red Force

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Four-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars completed their second win of the West Indies Championship today, when they brushed aside Leeward Islands Hurricanes by nine wickets here.

The Jaguars victory came before lunch on the final day of their top-of-the-table, second round contest at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, allowing them to enter the Christmas/New Year’s holiday break at the top of the standings with 37 points – 14.4 clear of Barbados Pride, their nearest rivals and next opponents when the Championship resumes on Friday, January 4 next year.

The Pride earned a boost of confidence and points with a dramatic, come-from-behind, 41-run win over Jamaica Scorpions yesterday at the Three Ws Oval in Barbados.

In the other match that came to a conclusion today, veteran off-spinner Shane Shillingford ended with match figures of 12-147 to bowl Windward Islands Volcanoes to a 76-run victory over Trinidad & Tobago Red Force at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad.

 

Hurricanes (182 & 138) lost to Jaguars (289) & 32-1 by nine wickets in North Sound, Antigua

Jaguars needed just two overs to wrap up the home team’s second innings – claiming the last two wickets for eight runs.

Gudakesh Motie collected both wickets and finished with 3-11 from six overs to follow up the destructive work of fellow left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul on the previous day.

The Hurricanes were left short-handed, as Guyana-born opener Rajendra Chandrika was unable to bat, due to injury.

Set 32 for victory, the Jags lost Tagenarine Chanderpaul for one in the second over, but their captain Leon Johnson hastened the conclusion with three boundaries in 15 not out.

Hurricanes, table leaders before the match, dropped to third place on 22.2 points.

 

Volcanoes (206 & 288) beat Red Force (225 & 193) by 76 runs in Tarouba, Trinidad

Shillingford, who took six in the first innings, grabbed three of the five wickets Red Force lost on the day to end with 6-73 from 35 overs.

Starting the day on 133 for five chasing 270 for victory, Red Force were bundled out in the final half-hour before lunch.

Rookie wicketkeeper/batsman Joshua Da Silva finished with the top score of 41, but no other batsman reached 20.

Once a budding, sixth-wicket between Da Silva and Tion Webster came to an end, the last five Red Force wickets fell for 47, leaving their captain Imran Khan not out on 15.

The result was a welcomed outcome for Volcanoes, after they lost their opening match against the Jaguars. They are fourth on 21.4 points, ahead of fifth-placed Scorpions on five points and bottom-placed Red Force on 4.4.
