Guyana faces key match up against Jamaica with a win enhancing their chances of reaching the semi-finals
Guyana’s National T20 cricket team will need to put their lacklustre performance of last Saturday against Trinidad’s Red Force behind them when they take on second placed Jamaica as the Caribbean T20 tournament resumes in the Caribbean island of St Lucia with a double header.
Billed as the showdown of the first round, the two teams brought the curtain down on the Trinidad leg of the tournament but the encounter between the two teams who have won the Regional T20 competition turned out not to be the firecracker many were expecting but a mismatch.
Now the tournament turns to St Lucia where Guyana will clash with Jamaica from 6pm with Trinidad and Tobago opposing the Windward Islands in the night’s feature contest.
Guyana, the Windward Islands and Barbados are in a three way tie on eight points behind the Jamaicans who are on nine points from two wins and a no result.
Barbados has already played four matches to three each by Guyana and the Windwards.
The Trinidadians lead the points standing with 13 points from four wins and a no result against Jamaica which netted the two sides a point each.
Guyana will need to be wary of the Jamaicans who dismissed the Trinidadians for a modest score of 128 in the opening game of the tournament before rain forced a no result to the contest, a feat which shows that their bowlers are not to be under-rated.
