Permaul, Beaton give Guyana control
GEORGETOWN, Guyana – West Indies left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul and impressive fast bowler Ronsford Beaton grabbed four wickets apiece to fire Guyana to first innings points over Combined Campuses and Colleges, on the second day of their sixth round clash in the Regional Four-Day Championship here Sunday.
Defending 231 at the National Stadium at Providence, Guyana routed CCC for 167 to grab a first innings lead of 64 runs.
Permaul finished with four for 39 and Beaton, career-best figures of four for 52 as CCC squandered a position of 40 without loss.
At the close, Guyana were perched on 44 for one, an overall lead of 108 runs, heading into Monday’s third day with Leon Johnson unbeaten on 26.
Resuming the day on 225 for seven, Guyana’s innings folded swiftly with part-time bowler Nekoli Parris claiming all three wicket to fall to finish with four for nine runs from 5.5 overs.
Off-spinner Ryan Austin picked up three for 77 and left-arm seamer Raymon Reifer, two for 28.
Nineteen-year-old left-hander Anthony Alleyne and Shacaya Thomas then put on 40 for the first wicket, to put Guyana on the defensive.
Alleyne struck a top score of 37 off 59 balls with seven boundaries while Thomas managed seven before he was caught at the wicket off Permaul.
CCC then suffered two big blows when Alleyne was caught at gully off off-spinner Steven Jacobs at 54 for two and Parris was bowled through the gate by Permaul, with two runs added, to leave the visitors on 58 for three at the interval.
Rain delayed the resumption by an hour but afterward, captain Kyle Corbin departed to a catch in the deep for 11, attempting to add to his one four and a six.
Wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton and veteran left-hander Floyd Reifer halted the slump with a stand of 28 for the fifth wicket, and were rebuilding when Reifer lost his leg stump to leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo at 99 for five.
Walton, who made 32 from 67 balls, then saw CCC past the 100-run mark with the first of his two sixes struck in the same over off Bishoo.
Beaton sent back Raymon Reifer for 19 before tea and the CCC slide continued after the interval as the last five wickets crashed for 56 runs.
Looking to strengthen their grip on the game batting a second time, Guyana lost opener Rajendra Chandrika without scoring in the second over, bowled by Parris with the score on two.
