BARBADOS PRIDE’S first-class cricketers were hurt and humbled by one of their sons of the soil at Kensington Oval yesterday.  

All-rounder Raymon Reifer shamed his highly-touted compatriots as four-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars defeated the Pride by six wickets for their third straight victory in the 2018-2019 Regional Four-Day Championship.
Reifer captured three for 53 in 23 overs as star-studded Barbados Pride crashed for 232 in their second innings.

This left the Jaguars with a mere 45 runs for victory in 16 overs and after some early hiccups, losing four wickets, Reifer (15 not out) and captain Leon Johnson (11 not out) formalised the embarrassment for the Pride, whose team included seven West Indies Test cricketers.
With the light fading, Reifer hastened the end by smashing sixes, the first off pacer Miguel Cummins over square-leg and the second over long-on off left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican as the Jaguars ended on 48 for four in 8.3 overs. (EZS)
