Guyana hold off fiesty Sagicor HPC
Kingston, Jamaica - Guyana held their nerves to edge past the feisty Sagicor High Performance Center in the second round of the WICB Regional 50 Over Tournament at Kensington Park.
Chasing 226 for victory Sagicor HPC fell short by four runs as they finished on 222 for 9 from the full quota of 50 overs. With 10 runs needed from the final over the equation was reduced to four runs from the final delivery with last man Brandon Bess facing to off spinner Steven Jacobs. Bess did not make contact with the quicker delivery and Guyana prevailed by three runs to collect four points.
Sagicor HPC won the toss and asked Guyana to bat. The Guyanese totalled 225 all out from 50 overs with captain Ramnaresh Sarwan stroking a fine 63 which won him the Man of the Match title.
