Jamaica batting first, were bundled out for 105 with Amazon Warrior Steven Taylor top scoring with 39, while Fabian Allen made 18. Permaul, who is enjoying a good time, snared 3 for 8 from his full quota to stifle the Jamaicans, as Ricardo Adams in his comeback outing for Guyana took 2 for 7 from three overs to complement his senior counterpart.

Guyana then reached their target in 19.2 overs, as Rutherford carved out his maiden fifty in national colours, while Robin Bacchus contributed 28, as Guyana finished on 106 for 6.
