By Sean Devers
Guyana Jaguars, led by incisive fast bowling from Nail Smith and clever spin bowling from Veerasammy Permaul, were large and in charge in their own backyard when the second day of their third round Regional Four-Day match against T&T’s Red Force ended at Providence yesterday.

The Red Force were bowled out for 98 with only Jeremy Solozano (27), Kjorn Ottley (22), Akeal Hosein (13) and Terrence Hind (10 no) reaching double figures.

When play resumed on another sun-kissed day, Bramble carried his overnight score of 63 to 91 from 77 balls, 119 minutes with 14 fours and three sixes, while Bishoo, unbeaten on 10 at the end of the first day, reached the boundary
four times from 63 balls and 85 minutes.

In reply, Red Force reached 10 without loss from three overs by Lunch.
After the interval pacer Keon Joseph bowled Kegan Simmons (2) at 12-1 to trigger a dramatic collapse which saw the Red Force capitulate to 20-5 as Smith, charging in and bowling fast and straight, ripped apart the Red force top order by taking four quick wickets.
Smith, the son of former National youth and senior Coach Albert Smith, scattered the stumps of the inform Bravo (1) and trapped Jason Mohammed for a first ball duck to leave the score on 13-3 and Smith was on a hat-trick.
Smith then trapped Joshua DaSilva (1) with one the cut back at 20-4 before breaching Yannick Cariah’s forward prod and crashing into his stumps before he had scored and Red Force were beginning to look like a spent force at 20-5.
