JAMAICA GLEANER – The Guyana Jaguars are in a strong position to force a victory over the Jamaica Scorpions in their top-of-the-table WICB First-Class Championship clash at Sabina Park.
Guided by an undefeated knock of 39 from young opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul, the son of Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Guyana were 133 for three at the close of yesterday’s second day. They now have an overall lead of 176, having made 189 in their first innings. The Scorpions made 146 in their first innings.
Resuming on 63 for four with Andre McCarthy, not out on eight, and former captain Tamar Lambert, yet to face a ball, Jamaica were undermined by spinner Veerasammy Permaul.
The short left-hander, varying his spin and flight to telling effect, claimed an impressive five for 25 off 22.5 overs.
Off-spinner Steven Jacobs, two for 10, was next best, while lanky 20-year-old left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie, playing in his first season, extended his leading wicket-taker tally to 29 with one for 18.
