THE Leon Johnson-led Guyana Jaguars got off to a sour start in their NAGICO Regional Super50 campaign, after falling to the Windwards Islands Volcanoes by one run compliments of the Duckworth Lewis method. Playing in St Kitts and Nevis, the Jaguars held the Windwards Islands to 214 runs in their allotted 50 overs.

The pick of the bowlers for the Jaguars was former West Indies U-19 spinner Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai with 3-32 from his 6 overs which included one maiden over (6-1-32-3). Steven Jacobs went for three for 40 runs (10-1-40-3).

Devon Smith (91), Sunil Ambris (47) and captain Liam Sebastian (27) did the damage for the Windward Islands, but, the weather wasn’t kind to the Guyanese in their run chase.
Rain forced the umpires to ‘pull the stumps’ when the Guyana Jaguars were 122-4 in their reply, with 26 overs already being bowled. The Guyana Jaguars needed 53 runs from 42 balls and Assad Fudadin at the crease on 44.
The Volcanoes won the title in 2013 while Guyana last hoisted the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) 50-over trophy 10 years ago.
