“Jaguars dim Pride’s stars”

Barbados Pride’s batch of big-name players gave a below-par bowling display as left-handed opener Chandrapaul Hemraj led a Guyana Jaguars’ ball-beating blitz with a maiden first-class centuryat Kensington Oval on Friday.

Powered by Hemraj’s authoritative and audacious career-best 144, the four-time defending champions took early control in their top-of-the-table third-round clash.

They raced to 319 for five off 90 overs at stumps on the opening day, which saw a whopping 47 fours and six sixes being struck after the Jaguars were sent in to bat on a placid pitch.

The 25-year-old Hemraj hammered the toothless bowling in the first two sessions as he stroked 20 fours and four sixes off 172 balls in an eye-catching four-hour knock. (EZS)
