West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President, Dave Cameron, is offering congratulations to the Guyana Jaguars for successfully defending the Regional 4-Day Professional Cricket League title. The team took home the George Headley/Everton Weekes Trophy.

The Jaguars racked up 149 points to win back-to-back titles and is the sole winner in the newly formatted four-day

competition.

"What Guyana as a country has done with its cricket product in the last three years, where all categories of their teams have won or been in a final, always challenging for a top position, is commendable," Cameron said.

"They were even more convincing in their last match of the round whipping Jamaica Scorpions by an inning and 55 runs," added Cameron.

The president also wanted to highlight the input of the WI Under-19 captain, Shimron Hetmyer, who since his return has been part of the squad and made an impressive century in the last round - 107 - and was also Man of the Match. "That is the kind of integration we encourage," exclaimed the president.

The region will now continue to focus its attention on the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 where the male and female teams have won two of the matches played so far.
