Leeward Islands 200 for 6 (Morton 74*, Richards 50) beat Guyana 199 (Cornwall 5-36) by 4 wickets
Runako Morton guided Leeward Islands, who had lost their previous two matches, to a surprise win over Guyana, who moved down to second place in the table of West Indies' regional one-day competition.
Wilden Cornwall, an Antiguan allrounder, took 5 for 36 to keep Guyana to 199 after Narsingh Deonarine and Lennox Cush had put on 64 for the fifth wicket. In reply, Morton, who batted with stomach ailment, hit an unbeaten 74 to pilot Leewards to victory with five balls to spare. Austin Richards, who opened the batting, played a fine supporting role, scoring 50.
