Jamaica trash Guyana for easy Caribbean T20 win
BASSEJOUR, St Lucia - Jamaica handed Guyana their second consecutive loss in the Caribbean T20 with a five-wicket drubbing yesterday, January 15, 2012. The loss now pushes Guyana even further down the table of teams competing in this year's tournament.
Jamaica chose to field and they had Guyana in trouble very early in the innings, the fast-bowling combination of Sheldon Cotterrell and Andre Russell rattling the Guyana top order.
The pair shared six wickets between them, Russell taking four of them, and reduced Guyana to 41 for 6. Christopher Barnwell and Royston Crandon added 33 for the seventh wicket, Nikita Miller picked up two wickets and the innings folded for just 93.
Jamaica's chase suffered an early setback with the loss of two wickets inside the first three overs but Danza Hyatt, Krishmar Santokie followed by Russell chipped in with valuable 20s to see their team home with 11 balls to spare.
