Taylor wrecks Jaguars
SHIV CHABDERPAUL’S SPLENDID century proved in vain as Jerome Taylor produced an incisive five-wicket haul to wreck Guyana Jaguars and propel Jamaica Scorpions to their first win of the Regional Super50 at Kensington Oval, Thursday night.
In a riveting contest at Kensington Oval, Scorpions posted 249 for eight off their 50 overs and bowled out Jaguars for 208 off 44 overs, to come away with a 41-run victory.
The second half of the contest belonged to Taylor and Chanderpaul, the former Test teammates, who showed they were still very much at their best.
Taylor, who quit the longest format last year, grabbed two wickets in his opening spell and then returned late in the innings to grab another three, as he finished with five for 40 – his best figures in regional 50-overs competition. (CMC)
