THE Windward Islands Volcanoes squandered an opportunity to begin this year’s regional four-day cricket competition on a winning note when they were defeated by the Guyana Jaguars by 104 runs yesterday.
It was a disappointing second innings batting performance by the Windwards that accounted for their demise after they were set 230 to win on the final day of the four-day fixture.
Dominica’s Shane Shillingford created the opportunity for the Windwards with match haul of 11 wickets, six in the first innings and five in the second.
The scores: JAGUARS 362 (RajindraChandrika 146, Vishaul Singh 48, Shivnarine Chanderpaul 34, Leon Johnson 29; Shane Shillingford 6-107) and 95 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul 34, Vishaul Singh 24; Shane Shillingford 5-36, Kenroy Peters 2-13, Kyle Mayers 2-20)
VOLCANOES 228 (Devon Smith 52, Tyrone Theophile 46, KeddyLesporis 38, Dalton Polius 31; Steven Jacobs 4-56, Ronsford Beaton 2-56, GudakeshMotie 2-66) and 125 all out.
