2022/23 West Indies Championship…
– Johnson secures 6th title in farewell match
Kaieteur News – The Guyana Harpy Eagles (GHE) produced nothing short of a miracle performance on Saturday morning to secure an outright win against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes (LIH) and claim the 2022/23 West Indies Championship title, at the Guyana National Stadium (GNS), Providence.
Hurricanes’ chase lasted about 40 minutes into the first session of the day as the Harpy Eagles’ spin attack, led by Kevin Sinclair, removed the remaining nine wickets for only 44 runs, to end Guyana’s campaign unblemished.
Day four started with the Hurricanes on 81-1, a mere 61 runs away from victory, and they looked well set to surpass the target as the experienced Kieran Powell and Keacy Carty were not out on 47 and 17, respectively.
The pair added 15 runs to the total then Sinclair intervened to remove Carty for 21; Hurricanes were 96-2. Devon Thomas, the new batsman, survived his first delivery but was not so fortunate on the second, as Sinclair claimed his third wicket via the lbw route.
Veerasammy Permaul at the other end added pressure to Hurricanes’ situation and also got into the wickets column when he bowled their captain, Jahmar Hamilton, without scoring; LIH slipped to 108-5.
Wickets continued to fall in pairs with Sinclair being clinical from the other end to dismiss Karima Gore (1) at 109-5. Powell managed to record another half century this season but fell to the charms of Permaul for 61 as Hurricanes were withering at 115-6.
Two runs later, Rahkeem Cornwall (2) – the season’s highest wicket taker, became a victim of the season’s second highest wicket taker, Permaul. With the score on 121, Kofi James (6) became Anthony Adams’ only scalp in the innings.
At 125-8 in the 46th over, Jeremiah Louis (7*) could only watch in disbelief at the other end as two poorly selected shots from Colin Archibald (0) and Javier Spencer (0), three deliveries apart, handed Guyana the victory and Title.
Sinclair ended that innings with magnificent figures of 6-33, Permaul had 3-44 while Adams bagged 1-3.
