Guyana win nail-biter

Social Share

NORTH SOUND – Four wickets – two to Esuan Crandon and two run outs – in a dramatic final over handed reigning champions Guyana a miraculous, come-from-behind, one-run victory over Somerset in the Caribbean Twenty20 Championship on Wednesday.
The Guyanese looked a beaten side, when Somerset, chasing 113 for victory from their allocation of 20 overs, entered the final over needing five runs in the rain-affected fifth match of the competition at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
But the Guyanese bowled steadily and fielded sharply in the closing over, as Somerset, runners-up in the English Twenty20 competition last year, lost their last seven wickets for six runs in the last 14 balls of the match.
Nick Compton, a grandson of the late England legend Denis Compton, hit the top score of 32, and Arul Suppiah supported with 26.
Christopher Barnwell, Veerasammy Permaul, and Crandon finished with two wickets apiece for 19, 20, and 22 runs respectively from their alloted four overs.
Ramnaresh Sarwan had shown his class, when he stroked 59 to lead the Guyanese to a modest 112 for eight off 20 overs.
The Guyana captain struck three fours and three sixes from 48 balls in an innings that helped to earn him the Man-Of-The-Match award, but no other batsman, including the durable Shivnarine Chanderpaul, passed 10. (CMC)
