Stanford 20/20 - 15th match

Jamaica v Guyana

Guyana won by 3 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

And now for the second quater final of the evening and of course the fight for the last team to go throw to the next round, the mighty Jamaica against Guyana The Jamaica team boasts with 8 West Indies players while Guyana has 4 This should and hopefully will be the closest match of the tournament so far This match will start in 40 minutes And after a clear sky all afternoon we have a sudden downpour again Lets hope that this just a quick shower and that we get this game under way No-one wants to see a bowl out At this stage the scheduled start is still 19:00 local, but that may be extended in due course Covers are coming off again and the showers have passed us by, touch wood Jamaica have won the toss and will bat Jamaica has won the toss and will bat We should have no delay for the start The crowd has grown significantly since the end of the first match, with the grass banks once again being very popular annd filling fast The main stand has been full since the start of the early match and we might once again have a full house You might be tired of hearing about him but the buglar is here and he keeps the spectators going throughout the match in True West Indies style For the rest there is a continual stream of advice coming from the boundary and beware if you defend two balls in a row Opposing supporters already starting to haggle each other and the match is still 10 mins away Flags of both territories being waved around all adding to a tremendous atmoshpere Only fitting that this match is the last of the quater finals As an impartial it would be great to see this game go to the final ball, but above that I would not mind witnessing Chris Gayle blazing away in true 2020 style Umpires are out, the players follow with the batsmen very close behind them Gayle to take strike, opening with Marshall They will face up to Crandon
