Meanwhile in a match that see-sawed in favour of one team then the next, Guyana Jaguars engaged the Windwards Volcanoes at Warner Park on Wednesday 13th January. The Jaguars batting first were perilously placed at an embarrassing 25 for 5, then lost their 7 wicket on 97.
However, thanks mainly to a determined knock by Royston Crandon and a more belligerent cameo by Paul Wintz, they eventually got to 209 for 9 in their 50 overs.
The Volcanoes started their reply with 10 runs from the first over but shortly thereafter, wickets started to tumble and they too were precariously positioned until Captain Liam Sebastien joined Ambris to steady the ship and later Shillingford and Cottoy swung their bats lustily to bring it home for the Volcanoes.
Summarized scores: Jaguars 209 for 9 in 50 overs
Volcanoes 210 for 8 in 49.3 overs
