Jaguars Crush Volcanoes By Innings

ROSEAU, Dominica – Guyana Jaguars needed just about an hour to dispose of Windward Islands Volcanoes by an innings and ten runs, and put a definite shine on their capture of the inaugural WICB Professional Cricket League here yesterday.

Resuming the day on 113 for six and requiring 31 runs to avoid an innings defeat, Volcanoes lost their last four wickets for 21 runs, in the space of 67 balls at Windsor Park.

Opener Tyrone Theophile, unbeaten on 45 overnight, added just two runs before he was bowled by left-arm spinner VeerasammyPermaul for 47, in the morning’s third over with three runs added.

Leg-spinner DevendraBishoo then ripped through the lower order to claim the last three wickets which fell, to finish with four for 38 while Permaul ended with four for 30.

Already assured of the title prior to the start of their final round encounter, Jaguars ended with 148 points to be the clear winners of the competition.

They registered seven victories in their nine outings, with a single defeat – coming at the hands of Barbados Pride in round three last December.

The Windwards, meanwhile, who started the final round assured of at least third place but challenging for second, ended on 109 points.
