Jaguars, Pride draw
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC):
Rain forced a premature end to a promising climax between Guyana Jaguars and Barbados Pride on the fourth day of their fourth round, day/night game in the Regional Four-Day Championship at the Guyana National Stadium here Monday.
Jaguars, resuming the day on 32 for two, suffered a sensational batting meltdown in their second innings to be all out for 139, setting Pride a winning target of 161.
Off-spinner Royston Chase and left-arm spinner Jomal Warrican grabbed four wickets each to be the main destroyers of Guyana's innings.
Pride started the chase poorly as hostile opening spells from Keon Joseph and Raymond Reifer reduced them to 23 for three before the rain chased the players off the field.
Guyana's batting meltdown occurred in the morning session as they struggled to negotiate the spin duo of Chase and Warrican who finished with four for 41 and four for 12 respectively.
