CAVE HILL, Barbados, – Guyana Jaguars wrapped up a disappointing preliminary round campaign in the Regional Super50 by brushing aside ICC Americas by eight wickets, in their final Group B outing here Thursday.
Already eliminated from advancing to the final four, Jaguars used the opportunity to notch their fourth win of the tournament by easily chasing down 171 at 3Ws Oval.
Opener ShimronHetmyer, returning to the lineup after missing the last two games, missed out on a maiden hundred with 94 while fellow left-hander Assad Fudadin hit 54 – his second half-century of the competition.
The pair put on 142 for the first wicket to negate any chance of an upset, as ICC Americas slumped to their sixth defeat in seven outings.
Hetmyer, the successful former West Indies Under-19s captain, hammered ten fours and four sixes in an aggressive 76-ball knock while Fudadin faced 66 deliveries and counted four fours and two sixes.
