A thrilling draw in St Lucia
Windward Islands and Guyana played out a thrilling draw at the Beausejour Cricket Ground
Guyana 176 and 219 drew with Windward Islands 181 and 209 for 8 (Emmanuel 63, Smith 57)
The Windward Islands and Guyana played out a thrilling draw at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in St Lucia. Guyana had fought it out in the morning, setting a target of 215, which the Windwards appeared likely to surpass with ease. But a minor collapse put them on the defensive before they regained the initiative - and lost it again on the threshold of victory when another cluster of wickets tumbled. Devon Smith (57) and Craig Emmanuel (63) added 110 for the second wicket, but a collapse found them struggling at 157 for 5. A recovery by Rawl Lewis (27) and Liam Sebastian (21) took them to the brink, but Imran Jaffernelly and Neil McGarrell struck to have them on the rack at 208 for 8 shortly before stumps were called.
Leeward Islands 196 for 5 (Willett 75, Morton 41) drew with Trinidad & Tobago
On the only day of play that was possible Tonito Willett (75) and Runako Morton (41) scored a few runs. With nothing to play for at the Queen's Park Oval, they helped Leewards to 196 for 5. Amit Jaggernauth starred with the ball, ending with 3 for 53 in 25 overs.
