Pride push for win over Jaguars

Social Share

The second-best men of the past five years still have some grooming to do at Kensington Oval today to restore Barbados’ cricket pride with a victory against five-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars. 

After Kyle Mayers and Jonathan Carter missed out on centuries, a lower-order rally helped Barbados Pride to 389 all out in 122.2 overs, a healthy 180-run lead, in reply to the Jaguars’ first innings total of 209.

But Barbados Pride’s push for their first victory over the Jaguars’ in six years was held up yesterday evening by a gutsy, unbeaten half-century from the experienced Vishaul Singh.

The diminutive left-hander was 56 not out, with Raymon Reifer on 17 as the Jaguars closed on 141 for three – still 39 runs in arrears – on the third day of their second-round match in the Regional Four-Day Cricket Championship. (EZS)
