The Leeward Islands Hurricanes continue to make waves in this year’s regional tournament.
After convincingly dishing out an innings defeat to the Barbados Pride team, on home soil, the Hurricanes generally dominated the game played against leaders on the points table, Guyana Jaguars.
It took a herculean effort from the ‘old soldier,’ Shiv Chanderpaul, in combination with Wicket keeper/ batsman Anthony Bramble, to save face for the visitors.
Chanderpaul put yet another ton in his archives and Bramble was not out on a well-played 59.
The pair came together, with the Jaguars dicely placed on 143 for 5 and facing a deficit of 206. They took the score to a more comfortable 268, before Chanderpaul fell.
The Jaguars then managed to hold out until the game was eventually called off.
