Kaieteur News – Led by good performances from Keon Joseph, Shimron Hetmyer, Tevin Imlach and Chanderpaul Hemraj, Guyana Jaguars ended the round-robin phase of the CG Insurance Super50 Cup in commanding fashion, beating the Windward Islands Volcanoes by nine wickets at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
Batting first the Volcanoes were in trouble losing wickets at regular intervals with only Emmanuel Stewart (46), Kevin Stoute (41) and Keron Cottoy (27) got useful starts as they limped to 153 all out in 45 overs. Gudakesh Motie, Christopher Barnwell and Ramaal Lewis picked up a wicket each but it was Man-of-the-Match, fast bowler, Keon Joseph, with 4-24, that did the damage. He had support also from Chanderpaul Hemraj with 2-11.
Chasing 154 for victory, the Jaguars raced to 155-1 in 28.4 overs to cement their number two status on the points standing. Shimron Hetmyer hammered 67 not out off 59 balls, his second half-century of the competition. He struck four sixes and three fours, adding an unbroken 93 second wicket stand with opener Tevin Imlach, who ended on 37 off 81 balls to follow up his 38 in the last game against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force.
Chandrapaul Hemraj was the wicket to fall, for a well played 41 off 32 balls (7x4s, 1×6). The opening stand between him and Imlach was 62 off 9.4 overs.
The Jaguars have won four of their five games, finishing behind leaders Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, who have won all their games. Volcanoes and the Jamaica Scorpions are the other teams in the semi-finals.
The semi-finals set for Wednesday and Thursday will see Red Force clashing with Scorpions on Wednesday, while on Thursday Jaguars battle Volcanoes. Both matches are fixed for the Coolidge Ground in Antigua with the action set to start at 1:30pm.
