Rain helps Guyana achieve historic double


GEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC - Guyana have achieved the historic double of winning the Regional Under-19 three-day and 50-over titles in the same year.

The Guyanese were adjudged champions of the One-day competition after wet conditions caused by rain forced the abandonment of the final at Everest on Friday.

A release from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) says under the rules of the competition, Guyana are the winners.

They have already copped the three-day title for the first time since 2007.

The hosts emerged with six convincing wins from as many games, chalking up 36.4 points to gain automatic entry to the final.

They were due to play Windward Islands who stopped Jamaica’s run to the finals with a nine wicket win.
