Guyana face uphill task after J/ca secure huge first innings lead

KINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC – Nkrumah Bonner and John Campbell hit half-centuries as Jamaica predictably snatched first innings points over Guyana on the second day of their Regional Four-Day contest at Sabina Park here yesterday.

Responding to Guyana’s paltry 117 all out on Friday’s opening day, Jamaica were dismissed for 294 – a lead of 177 on first innings.

Bonner, who has played two Twenty20 Internationals for West Indies, top scored with 62 while opener Campbell struck an even 50 as Jamaica stamped their authority on the first round encounter.

At the close, Guyana were 32 for one in their second innings, still 145 runs behind heading into Sunday’s penultimate day.

Resuming from 89 for one overnight with Bonner on nine and Campbell on 32, Jamaica flourished as the pair stretched their second wicket stand to 67 before being parted.

Bonner and captain Tamar Lambert then added a further 42 for the third wicket before both fell within 18 runs of each other.

Lambert went first, caught at the wicket off seamer Chris Barnwell and Bonner followed soon afterward, prised out by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo after facing 167 balls and counting two fours.

Five wickets tumbled for 41 runs as left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul picked up five for 76 and Bishoo snared two for 82, to rip through the middle order.

However, West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell then rallied the lower order with 44 off 42 balls, belting eight fours.

Resurgent all-rounder Jerome Taylor then followed Russell’s cue, smashing three fours and two sixes in a 31-ball 28, as Jamaica earned precious runs late on.


Summarised score at Warner Park:

First day’s play.
