It is improbable, but still mathematically possible for Guyana Jaguars to win a sixth consecutive Regional Four-Day title in the era of the Professional Cricket League (PCL).

Jaguars are currently tied with Jamaica Scorpions on 91.8 points, 43 points adrift of leaders Barbados Pride. There are still two outstanding rounds to play whenever the season resumes from the suspension due to the coronavirus.

Mathematically speaking, Jaguars, who will face Windward Islands Volcanoes at home then away to Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, can get a maximum of 48 points, which would give them the title, should Pride lose their remaining two home matches, and hardly gain any points.

It is a maximum of 24 points per match, on the basis that all batting points are collected and fast-bowlers take all 20 wickets.

Given the form of Pride and the high possibility their international players will be available for those two home matches, they remain strong favourites to lift the title.

Stopped reading that crap after this.. these jokers for journalist should stick to reporting scores, they don't know anything about cricket!


Samaroo further rationalised that current West Indies players Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd and Shimron Hetmyer have somewhat “established themselves” and they can “sit out and give younger guys a chance.”


That journalist on something special..

Samaroo lacks basic thinking skills.He is about bringing in youngsters so he drops 3 of the best youngsters in Hetmyer,Paul and Shepherd but leaves in Johnson,Cheesy and Barnwell who are all over 30.What a dipstick.No wonder Guyana is in such deep doo-doo!!!!

Guyana had one mediocre season, so some people with a pen want to change many things. What has been good this season is the emergence of Smith and Sinclair, the observation that Tage might not be the answer for the opening position.

What was mediocre about Guyana’s season?

As I recall, they had 1 bad match. That happens to everyone

When you look at the last 20 years of the regional 4-day tournament, T&T under Ganga, Jamaica under Lambert and Guyana under Johnson, wreathe winners.
Guyana situation is different the T&T and Jamaica.
The latter two lose experience players to T20 Leagues, Guyana did not.
Hetmyer, Paul are now getting started, they were not around in the early years of Guyana winning the championship.

They lost two times badly to B/dos, they lost to Jamaica and they were fighting to avoid defeat to LWI, the team that is at the bottom of the Points table, isn't that mediocre?

That Leewards Islands squad had three out of Berridge Joseph, Louis and Cornwall present.

Whenever Leewards had three of these present their bowling was quite formidable.

Is this not the team, that won the last five titles?
You guys praise this team at the beginning of the tournament, and now calling the same team mediocre.
Other teams got better, that's the reason for Guyana losing.

I said a mediocre season, not a mediocre team, I am aware that some of their best bowlers were away, however reread my initial post, it was a critic of the article's author who is asking for a make over of the team because of them having a mediocre season.

Guyana is within a couple points of being the Bride maid, that's not a mediocre season.
Nothing about Guyana cricket is mediocre.
