Defending West Indies Championship side, the Guyana Jaguars made short work of their Kensington Oval final-day clash against the Barbados Pride, romping to a 6-wicket victory that, in truth, wasn’t even as close as that. 

Centuries from Anthony Bramble and Chandrapaul Hemraj led the way as defending West Indies Championship side, the Guyana Jaguars ended Day two with a massive lead over the Barbados Pride.

Scores in the match so far, sent into bat, the Jaguars scored 548 all out, with the Pride going in search of the runs at 33-1.

On day one, Hemraj scored a good-looking 144 from 172 deliveries to put the Jaguars in control of the first innings before 75 from Raymon Reifer, 130 not out from Bramble, and 54 from Sherfane Rutherford, left the Jaguars in a wonderful position with two days of cricket to go.

Veerasammy Permaul and Clinto Pestano, 32 each made sure the Pride bowlers would suffer a little longer, while Tagenarine Chanderpaul had a 150-ball 37 that complimented Hemraj’s innings at the top of the order brilliantly.

Ashley Nurse was the pick of the suffering Pride bowlers, bagging 4-122 from 38 overs, while there was a wicket apiece for Jason Holder, 1-47, Jomel Warrican, 1-124, Roston Chase, 1-57, and Jonathan Carter, 1-31.

The Jaguars batted for all but 14.1 overs of the last two days but have already made inroads into the innings of the Pride with Shayne Mosely out for 15. Kraig Brathwaite is not out on 11 with Roston Chase to come in the morning.

The Pride will, in the morning, try to overhaul the 515-run deficit they are in and try to make a game that, at the halfway stage, looks like either a draw or a win for the defending champions.

John Campbell scored and Anthony Bramble scored half-centuries as the Windies B defeated Canada B by 77 runs in the Canada Cricket Summerfest competition on Wednesday.

Anthony Bramble will captain a 14-member Windies ‘B‘ squad named to compete in the Cricket Canada Summerfest from Wednesday, August 29 to September 7, 2018.
