Jaguars under pressure from Hurricane

Posted by at 11 November, at 02 : 31 AM Print

JOHN’S, Antigua – Leeward Islands Hurricanes followed up consistent batting down the order with purposeful bowling to grab a cluster of late wickets and put their noses in front against table leaders Guyana Jaguars in the Digicel 4-Day Championship on Friday.

The Hurricanes benefitted from half-centuries from Windies “A” Team opener Montcin Hodge, former Windies Under-19 batsman Keacy Carty, Windies “A” Team wicketkeeper/batsman Jahmar Hamilton and little-known, lower-order batsman Terence Warde on the second day of the key third round match at Warner Park.

All-rounder Jeremiah Louis then grabbed a brace of early wickets and four dismissals in the final hour compounded matters for Jaguars, the reigning three-time champions, leaving them with a mountain to climb on Saturday’s third day.

Meantime, Trinidad & Tobago Red Force too, followed up strong batting with steady bowling to put the skids on Windward Islands Volcanoes at Queen’s Park Oval, and rain continued to wreak havoc on the contest between Jamaica Scorpions and Barbados Pride at Sabina Park.

Louis had opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul caught at slip for three and bowled Test batsman Leon Johnson, the Jaguars captain, for two to leave the visitors eight for two.

They were just beginning to find their feet, when Stanny Simon removed Chandrapaul Hemraj for 23, triggering a decline that saw four wickets – including veteran former Windies left-hander Shivnarine Chanderpaul – fall for 14, as the Jags stumbled past the 50 mark.

Night-watchman Veerasammy Permaul was run out for a duck in a mix-up with Windies “A” Team batsman Vishaul Singh, Chanderpaul was caught behind off Windies “A” Team off-spin all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall for five and wicketkeeper/batsman Anthony Bramble fell to spinner Terence Warde before stumps were drawn.

Earlier, a 175-run stand between Hodge and Carty was the rock upon which the Hurricanes built their first innings total.

Hodge hit the top score of 91 and Carty made 82 before the Hurricanes stumped to 246 for five.

Hamilton, whose form eluded him in the recent series against Sri Lanka “A”, hit 56, anchoring two half-centuries with Cornwall and Warde that pushed the Hurricanes past the 350 mark.

The home team however, sacrificed a few late wickets in the charge to get their total past 400 before the declaration.
