… Singh, Reifer share 93-run partnership

By Clifton Ross

VISHAUL Singh narrowly missed what could have been his second ton this season as Guyana Jaguars managed to keep the game in their favour, despite some fire with the ball from Leeward Hurricanes pair of Rakeem Cornwall and Jerimiah Louis.

Day 2 at Providence saw a mixed outing for the home team, led by a stylish 90 from Vishaul Singh who sadly missed out on a ton for the second time this season.
The former Windies Test batsman struck 6 fours as he got support from all-rounder Raymon Reifer (43) and captain Leon Johnson who made 35 to guide Guyana to a 1st innings 259 all out in 107 overs.

All it took was a disciplined approach from two key men in; spinner Rakeem Cornwall who bagged 4 for 96 and seamer Jerimiah Louis who mopped up the middle order with his haul of 4-48 for the Hurricanes.

Trailing by 186 runs, opener Montcin Hodge (21*) hit two fours while the classy Amir Jangoo was also on 22, as the pair will look to resume in positive fashion with the Leewards 73-2 in reply.

Kieran Powell (13) and Ross Powell (6) were removed by spinners Veerasammy Permaul (1-15) and Kevin Sinclair (1-17) to help the Jaguars gain a bit of an edge going into day 3.
Reifer and Singh were both positive upon resumption of play on day 2.
Reifer did well to take his score into the 40s while Singh continued to press onwards following his first-day half-century.

However, the seamer Louis had other plans when he removed the all-rounder out just 7 runs away from his fifty.

Louis then had the big fish Singh, caught by Hamilton minutes before lunch, further damaging the Champs with his third successive breakthrough; this time knocking over Kevin Sinclair for a duck as Guyana went into lunch on 198-7.

When play resumed, Anthony Bramble (23), Permaul (24*) and Motie 15 added useful runs to the total before the side folded in their first innings.
Action continues today from 10:00hrs.
