Johnson, Fudadin put Jaguars on top
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):
Out-of-favour West Indies left-hander Leon Johnson missed out on a hundred but another Test discard, Assad Fudadin, was within reach of triple figures, as leaders Guyana Jaguars dominated day two of their fourth-round contest against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force here yesterday.
At the close at Queen's Park Oval, the visitors were 233 for three, a lead of only 23 runs but with seven wickets still intact heading into the pivotal day three.
Fudadin was unbeaten on 94 while Johnson struck 90 and veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul 22 not out, as Jaguars batted the entire day to consolidate their position in the Regional First Class Championship game.
Resuming the day on nine without loss in reply to Red Force's 210, Jaguars had the worst possible start when they lost Shimron Hetmyer in the day's third over without adding to his overnight seven, leg before wicket to seamer Marlon Richards at 10 for one.
However, that was the end of the immediate success for Red Force as Fudadin and Johnson combined in a 138-run, second-wicket stand to put Jaguars in control.
AT GRENADA NATIONAL STADIUM: Barbados Pride, leading Windward Islands Volcanoes by 117 runs on first innings, were 30 for two at the close.
