Georgetown, Guyana, CMC — Narsingh Deonarine captured the spotlight once again, this time with the ball, producing a five-wicket haul to keep Guyana Jaguars out front on the third day of their second round clash here Sunday.
The Test player, who has struck two centuries in the new-look WICB Professional Cricket League, broke the backbone of Windward Islands Volcanoes’ batting with his part-time off-spin, to send the visitors careening to a disappointing 184 all out.
Securing a lead of 107, Guyana reached the finish on 133 for five – 240 runs ahead going into Monday’s final day at the National Stadium at Providence.
However, it was the in-form Deonarine who undermined the Windwards and put Guyana in a strong position.
