Set a small target of 114 to win, Chandrapaul Hemraj stroked his seventh first-class half century to see Guyana Jaguars defeat Barbados Pride by seven wickets before tea on the third day of the Cricket West Indies four-day championships at the National Stadium, Providence yesterday.

Pride resumed the penultimate day on 228-6 with a 103-run lead but lasted just five overs in the morning as they folded for 238 in 75.5 overs, responding to Jaguars’ first innings total of 201. The hosts then eased to 118-3 in 29 overs.
