Miracle in Georgetown
GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Barbados Pride defeated Guyana Jaguars by two runs on the final day of their third round WICB Professional Cricket League match today.
It was an improbable win for the Pride who bowled out Guyana for 66 in their second innings at the National Stadium, Providence here today.
Guyana needed 69 to win, but were reduced to 12 for four and then bundled out short of the target. Dwayne Smith took five wickets for 17 runs.
Earlier, Ryan Hinds scored an important 68 as Barbados were bowled out for 228. It proved enough, extending the lead which was a mere 54 runs at stumps.
Guyana Jaguars 261 (Anthony Bramble 73, Shimron Hetmyer 47, Rajendra Chandrika 34; Ryan Hinds 4-50, Dwayne Smith 2-20, Jomel Warrican 2-52) and 66 (Dwayne Smith 5-17, Jonathan Carter 2-13, Ryan Hinds 2-21). Barbados Pride 101 (Dwayne Smith 32; Veerasammy Permaul 8-26) and 228 (Ryan Hinds 68, Shane Dowrich 50, Kyle Corbin 35; Devendra Bishoo 4-65, Veerasammy Permaul 4-75, Chris Barnwell 2-21).
