Summary

  • Despite another fine bowling display from debutant fast bowler Chemar Holder, young opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul made an impressive unbeaten half-century to put Guyana Jaguars in an excellent position to push for a victory over Barbados Pride.
  • The 21-year-old Chanderpaul batted solidly for 66 not out as the Guyana Jaguars closed yesterday’s penultimate day on 154 for four in their second innings – an overall lead of 252 runs with six wickets in hand in their Digicel Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day match at Kensington Oval.
  • Chanderpaul’s courageous knock, which has so far spanned 297 minutes off 197 balls and included five fours, came in the face of some testing bowling from the 19-year-old Holder, who followed up his five-wicket haul in the first innings with three for 56 off 18 overs.
  • What was pleasing about the younger Chanderpaul’s innings was the confidence with which he played the pull and hook shot to the number of short-pitched deliveries delivered by Holder and Miguel Cummins, who led the Barbados Pride’s bowling in the absence of Test fast bowler Kemar Roach.
  • After reaching his third half-century in first-class cricket, Roach tried to cut a wide delivery from left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul, who only sent down five overs in the innings, and was caught at the wicket.
