Jaguars vs Red Force

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Jason Mohammed was in sight of his seventh first class hundred but the effort appeared unlikely to save Trinidad and Tobago Red Force from a heavy defeat and their fourth straight, in the Regional Four-Day Championship yesterday.

Trailing by a massive 405 runs on first innings, Red Force ended day three of their final round contest against Guyana Jaguars on 282 for eight – still a further 123 runs adrift of avoiding an innings defeat at the National Stadium.

Mohammed was unbeaten on 92, an innings that has so far required 185 deliveries, 2-1/2 hours and included 14 boundaries.

Pride vs Scorpions

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — Chadwick Walton stroked his 20th first class half-century to steady Jamaica Scorpions but opener Shayne Moseley gathered his second of the match, as Barbados Pride tightened their grip during their final-round encounter in the Regional Four-Day Championship here yesterday.

Resuming the third day at Kensington Oval on 93 for three, Scorpions rallied to 247 all out in their first innings, with the right-handed Walton top-scoring with 72.

West Indies limited-overs all-rounder Rovman Powell struck a quick-fire 43, while captain Nikita Miller chipped in with 27.

Innovation the mantra for CPL's success

Sat, Jan 20, '18


Caribbean Premier League

No matter the time of the year, it seems there is always a T20 tournament taking place. Right now, it is Australia's Big Bash. Shortly, it will be the Pakistan Super League and then the IPL will come along. The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will take place in August and England's T20 Blast occupies a similar time slot. With so many T20 competitions now in existence, there is a danger that they could all start to blur into one. For that reason, the organisers of the CPL are determined to make sure their tournament stands out.

The CPL is already unique in certain ways. It is the only one of the world's top T20 leagues that is not run by a governing body - it is a private enterprise run with the blessing of Cricket West Indies - which means making money for its stakeholders is an important concern. It is also the only tournament which is played at the same time as another leading competition and the domestic market is serves is smaller than most, too.

This year's edition of the CPL will be its sixth. After the third season, the competition's Chief Executive Damien O'Donohue confidently predicted that it would begin to turn a profit but it has yet to do so and it failed, once again, to make money last year. In an exclusive chat with Cricbuzz alongside the chief operating officer Pete Russell, O'Donohue says the business side of the CPL is "always a challenge" and the sponsorship of Digicel, the telecommunications company, is "absolutely vital to keep the tournament going".

PCL: Round 10, Day 2

Sat, Jan 20, '18



Jaguars vs Red Force

SHERFANE Rutherford narrowly missed out on a maiden century while Raymond Reifer is 15 runs short of his, as title-holders, the Guyana Jaguars completed another dominant day of Cricket West Indies Regional four-day first-class championships.

The Jaguars, playing at home took the stranglehold against a hapless Trinidad and Tobago Red Force line-up in the final round of the tournament.

Both Rutherford and Reifer grabbed the spotlight with innings of rare presence and sublime skill, as the Jaguars’ batting performance extended throughout the second day which swung the game firmly in the hosts’ favor.

Pride vs Scorpions

Barbados Pride pace quartet of Chemar Holder, Keon Harding, Justin Greaves and Dominic Drakes brought to life a pedestrian day with hostile bowling in the final hour to put Jamaica Scorpions on the back-foot in the Regional 4-Day Championship at Kensington Oval today.

Extracting pace and bounce from the hard, true pitch, the quartet rattled the Scorpions’ top order, claiming the prized scalp of West Indies batsman Jermaine Blackwood, and reduced the visitors to 93 for three, replying to Pride’s first innings total of 427, at the close on the second day of their 10th and final round match.

This followed close to five hours of dour play from the Pride batting which featured a career-best 166 from their captain Shamarh Brooks before they were bowled out about half-hour after tea.

Jaguars vs Red Force

TITLE-holders Guyana Jaguars have taken total control at the end of day one of their final round of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Regional four-day first-class championship against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force when play ended yesterday at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence.

The Jaguars were 116-1 in reply to the Red Force inadequate total of 135, trailing by 19 runs with Tagenarine Chanderpaul on 34 and Test batsman Shimron Hetmyer on four. Chandrapaul Hemraj made a fabulous 72 off 111 balls.

The visitors won the toss and batted, but their decision backfired as they collapsed to a combination of good bowling and some injudicious shot-making inside 45 overs.
Skipper Denesh Ramdin top-scored with an even 50, Yannic Cariah hit 26 and Jeremy Solozano 21, but the remaining twin-island Republic batsmen never came to grips with the hosts’ bowling attack and lost wickets regularly.

Pride vs Scorpions

Captain Shamarh Brooks scored a classy century for Barbados Pride against Jamaica Scorpions on the opening day of the final round of the Digicel 4 Day Professional Cricket League at Kensington Oval today.

In a battle between the second-placed Pride and third-placed Scorpions, the home team ended the day on 261 for four, with Brooks 104 not out and Jonathan Carter undefeated on 36.

Barbados Pride captain Shamarh Brooks scored a classy ton to put his side in command against the Scorpions.
Brooks compiled his century in 264 minutes from 194 balls including 14 elegant fours. The right-handed batsman was at his stylish best playing several sweetly timed shots on both sides of the wicket, among them was an elegant punch between the mid-wicket and mid-on fielders off fast bowler Derval Green, and they all stood like sentries as the ball sped to the boundary.

Under-19 captain regrets controversial appeal

Thu, Jan 18, '18



MOUNT MAUNGANUI, New Zealand (CMC) – West Indies Under-19 captain, Emmanuel Stewart, says he regrets the appeal which led to the controversial dismissal of South African opener Jiveshan Pillay, during yesterday’s ICC Youth World Cup fixture here.Following the contest at Bay Oval which Young Windies lost by 76 runs, Stewart said while his decision has been within the laws of cricket, it did not reflect the spirit of the game.“I asked the question and it was given out based on the laws and the rules of the game,” Stewart said.
But on reflection it wasn’t in the spirit of the game. I think moving forward I would have withdrawn the appeal and that’s how I see it.”
