Pride to face Jaguars

Social Share

GEORGETOWN – The oldest rivalry in West Indies first-class matches will be the centre of attraction in the third round of the WICB Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day Tournament, starting today.

Leaders Guyana Jaguars host reigning double-crown regional champions Barbados Pride in the key match of the round at the Guyana National Stadium in Providence.

At the same time, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force meet the Jamaica Franchise at Queen’s Park Oval and Windward Islands Volcanoes face the Leeward Islands Franchise at the Grenada National Stadium.

The Jaguars have put home advantage to telling use and unexpectedly rushed to the top of the standings with victories from their first two matches and they will be looking to continue in this vein.

Inclement weather has set Barbados back in their first two matches, denying them a chance to push for victory in their opener against the Red Force and allowing just 43.4 overs against the Jamaica Franchise.

Both sides will be looking to forge ahead – the Jaguars to extend their lead in the tournament and the Pride to land that elusive first victory. (CMC)
