Jamaica in control, Guyana stage fightback

Wed, Aug 8, '18



KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC) – Jamaica are in a good position to claim first innings lead over the Windward Islands, while Guyana staged a fightback against Trinidad and Tobago after being skittled out on the opening day of the second round of matches in the Regional Under-19 Championship.

Led by three-wicket hauls from Sanjay Brown and Raewin Senior, Jamaica dismissed the Windwards for just 184. At the close of play, they had made significant inroads into that total, finishing on 133 for two, just 51 runs adrift.

Jamaica were given a solid start by openers Kirk McKenzie (33) and Ricardo McIntosh, who scored 64, as they added 65 runs in just 12 overs for the first wicket.

McIntosh's knock contained seven boundaries and one six and came off 83 balls.

Following their eventual dismissals, Bryan Brown, who is unbeaten on 16 and Andre McCarthy (12 not out), ensured there were no further surprises.

Earlier, Brown and Senior, along with McCarthy, who took two wickets, ran through the Windwards lower order.
