GROS ISLET, St Lucia, CMC – Guyana withstood a late charge from Leeward Islands to carve out a 14-run win and take a huge stride towards a spot in the playoffs of the Caribbean T20 on Thursday night.

Chris Barnwell’s unbeaten 61 fired them to a challenging 156 for three off their 20 overs and they did well in the death overs to hold off the rampaging Devon Thomas and Chesney Hughes, to restrict the Leewards to 142 for five at the end of their innings.

Thomas stroked an unbeaten 46 and Hughes cracked 26, in a 54-run, fourth wicket stand off just 29 balls that pulled the Windwards around from 68 for three in the 12th over.
