Guyana, replying to the Leeward Islands first innings score of 116, were dismissed for 226 with Kevin Sinclair following up his 4-19 bowling figures with a fighting half-century.
At the close of play on the second day of the Cricket West Indies regional U19 three-day competition in St Vincent and the Grenadines, the Leeward Islands, batting a second time, were 22-0.
Today is the final day.
Yesterday, Guyana, the defending champions, resuming on
58-2, were indebted to Sinclair’s 51, 49 from Sachin Singh and 35 from skipper Bhaskar Yadram as the defending champions eked out a lead of 110.
Sinclair’s 51 came from 68 balls and included five fours and a six.
Earlier, Singh shared in a 51-run, third-wicket partnership with Yadram whose 35 included five fours and one six.
Following Yadram’s dismissal to Jemuel Cabey, Singh cut loose as he and Kevlon Anderson added 48 runs for the fifth wicket.
Singh missed out on a half century falling for 49 from 97 balls with two sixes and three fours before he was bowled by Zawandi White.
Anderson added 17 while Javid Karim’s cameo of 30 was enough to see Guyana with a
healthy lead. Javen Spencer was the pick of the Leewards’ bowlers, claiming 5-70 from 15 overs while White ended with 3-16.
In reply, Leewards’ opener Mikyle Louis closed unbeaten on 15 from 38 balls while Jelanni Manners faced 34 balls for his one run as Leewards closed the day on 22-0.
