Super50: Hemraj half-century, Barnwell bowling help Jaguars back to winning ways

Christopher Barnwell

A bowling spell of 4-35 from Christopher Barnwell and an innings of 64 from Chanderpaul Hemraj helped the Guyana Jaguars get back to winning ways in their Cricket West Indies Regional Super50 Festival game against the United States on Monday.

Sent into bat, the US were skittled out for 144 with the Jaguars racing to 150-3 in reply.

The United States innings depended too heavily on the batting of opener Jaskaran Malhotra, who scored 80 from 116 deliveries.

Outside of Malhotra, only Xavier Marshall, 19, and Adil Bhatti, 19, managed to trouble the scorers too much.

While Barnwell was the pick of the Jaguars bowlers, he was well supported by former Windies under-19 player, Keemo Paul, who ended with figures of 2-25.

Shefane Rutherford, 1-23, Veerasammy Permaul, 1-14, and Devendra Bishoo, 1-33, were all not just wicket-takers, but fairly economical as well, allowing Barnwell to create havoc when he bowled.

When the Jaguars replied, they lost Shimron Hetmyer for five but there was to be very little joy for the US bowlers after that.

Hemraj would go on to strike six fours and four sixes on his way to his total, taking just 59 balls before he lost his wicket to Timil Patel.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul has not had the best season in the shorter form of the game in the region to date, but he got to 39 on Monday, and maybe back to something similar to good form.

Barnwell returned to score an unbeaten 19, along with skipper Leon Johnson, who did the same.
