Assad Fudadin batted positively to score 71 after Veerasammy Permaul grabbed 4-22 as Guyana Jaguars roared to a six-wicket win over the Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners in the third round of the NAGICO
Super50 tournament at the St Paul’s ground yesterday in St Kitts.
A 76-run opening partnership between 30-year-old Fudadin, who faced 96 balls and struck six fours and three sixes, and Wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble (20), spearheaded the Jaguars to 153-4 from 38.4 overs in reply to the 149 in 48.3 overs made by CCC Marooners.
The 34-year-old Player/Coach Ryan Hinds fell three short of 14th Regional 50-over half-century but no other batsman reached 20 as left-arm spinner Permaul bowled 10 frugal overs to follow up his 3-32 in the last round against the Leewards Hurricanes.
Aaron Jones (17), Akeem Dewar (15), Anthony Alleyne (14), Christopher Powell (14) and Nino Henry (12) were the other batsmen to reach double figures for the Students.
When the Jaguars began the run-chase, Fudadin dominated the stand with the usually aggressive Bramble, who replaced Vishaul Singh at the top of the order.
Fudadin scored 40 of the first 50 runs with Bramble playing the supporting role as the bowlers failed to make an early breakthrough on another slow track.
Fudadin, who made an unbeaten 44 in the first match before scoring five in the last game, registered his 6th fifty at this level from 63 balls with five fours and two sixes as the Berbician pair played without any worries.
Fudadin, who has played three Tests but none in almost four years, continued to play fluently but soon lost Bramble (20) off fast bowler Chris Powell, who finally made the breakthrough in the 18th over with the score on 76-1.
Vishaul Singh joined Fudadin and left-handed pair brought up the 100 in 27 overs with the bearded Fudadin moving quickly to 71 before he was removed by off-spinner Vikash Mohan at 109-2 in the next over to bring Skipper Leon Johnson to the crease.
The Jaguars slipped to 114-3 when Johnson departed for two off Mohan and 10 runs later pacer Rovman Powell got rid of Chris Barnwell (4) as conditions became very overcast and when a shower sent the players off the field, the Jaguars were 131-4 in 35.2 overs.
At that stage Singh had progressed to 23 and Raymon Reifer was with him on two with the South American Franchise needing another 19 runs for victory.
After play resumed Singh lifted Mohan for six down the ground to put an exclamation mark on the victory in the 39th over as he finished unbeaten on 36 and Reifer on 10.
