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.

Well played by young Bonner. He, like Theophile from Dominica and the Guyanese Leon Johnson, often displays what looks a decent technique...but then something goes wrong "upstairs" and the brain switches off. Good to see him take it on and record a decent score. Let's hope that some of these younger batsmen can step up this season and force their way into the test set up. Also great to see Jerome Taylor back in the Jamaica side and bowling pretty well thus far. How welcome he would be in the W.I. pace attack.
