Bonner ton secures Jamaica top spot

Jamaica 243 for 7 (Bonner 122*) beat Guyana 233 (Chanderpaul 65, Russell 3-51, Cottrell 3-62) by 10 runs

Nkrumah Bonner hit his highest domestic one-day score to almost single-handedly drag Jamaica to 243, before his team's bowlers bowled out Guyana 11 short of the target. It was an almost inconsequential match as both teams had qualified to the semi-finals from Zone A in the Nagico Super50.

Bonner hit eight fours and five sixes as he remained unbeaten on 122 after having walked in in the fourth over. He had little support, with the next highest score being 27 from Andre McCarthy, followed by 21 extras including 18 wides.

Guyana's chase got off to a solid start as the vastly experienced Shivanrine Chanderpaul and Trevon Griffith put on 88 for the first wicket. After that, however, Guyana couldn't manage any partnerships of substance as Nos 4 to 9 were dismissed between scores of 11 and 21 and the asking-rate kept increasing. Christopher Barnwell was out off the last ball of the 33rd over and only seven runs came in the next 24 deliveries, including the wicket of Chanderpaul, and Guyana couldn't keep pace after that.
