A well-crafted century by Ricardo Adams handed Essequibo a three-wicket victory over Georgetown when the fourth round of the Cricket Guyana Inc. Jaguars three-day franchise league concluded yesterday at Tuschen.
Resuming on their overnight score of 155-5 in pursuit of 193, Essequibo attained victory in the first session which was delayed due to rain for the loss of seven wickets. Ricardo Adams and Mark Williams began on 95 and 34 respectively and Adams calmly reached his triple figure mark with a single off Christopher Barnwell. However, Barnwell removed Williams for 43 and Vijay Surujpaul (08). But Adams kept his composure to see his team home, smashing Ramaal Lewis for consecutive sixes to ensure Essequibo remain at the top of the point’s standings.
Earlier, Essequibo lost Kevon Boodie (05), Parmesh Parsotam (00), Kemol Savory (07), Keemo Paul (03) and Chaitram Persaud (00) to be reduced to 40-5, but the left-handed Adams batted with much maturity and along with Williams took their team within sights of victory. Adams was untroubled as he mixed aggression with defence, hitting five fours and eleven sixes in his unbeaten 116; Essequibo ended on 194-7. Barnwell claimed 6-48.
Scores: Georgetown 117 and 245, Essequibo 170 and 194-3.
