Jagaurs vs Kent 

NORTH SOUND, Antigua (CMC) – Spin twins Veerasammy Permaul and Devendra Bishoo wrecked English County Kent, to propel Guyana Jaguars to a comfortable 35-run victory in their opening Group B match of the Regional Super50 here yesterday.
Defending a seemingly inadequate 233 at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, Jaguars appeared en route to defeat with Kent cruising on 119 for one in the 28th over.But Permaul snatched four for 46 and leg-spinner Bishoo, three for 34, to scythe through the innings and send Kent crashing for 198 all out in the 47th over.
Zak Crawley top-scored with 60 while Sean Dickson got 29 and Daniel Bell-Drummond, 28, but the remainder of the batting failed to come to terms with the Jaguars’ attack.Earlier, veteran former West Indies star, Shiv Chanderpaul, stroked 67 at the top of the order and got support from wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble who made 39, as Jaguars were bowled out for 233 off 49 overs.
