Spotlight on Guyana, Trinidad

Published: Friday | March 16, 2012 Comments 0


With runaway leaders Jamaica sitting out the sixth round of matches in the Regional Four-Day Champion-ship starting today, the remaining teams will look to make strides towards securing the three remaining semi-final spots when they do battle across the region.

Jamaica crushed Trinidad and Tobago by 192 runs last weekend in Port-of-Spain to charge to a maximum 60 points from their five matches, and become the first team to book a semi-final spot.

Their absence this weekend has put the spotlight squarely on Guyana who, with their innings and 66-run defeat of Barbados on Monday, have jumped into second place on 36 points.

T&T, in third place on 28 points, will also be gunning for a win to make up for their very poor showing against Jamaica and also gain precious points.

In the other games, fourth-place Barbados (24 points) will take on a resurgent Leeward Islands at Kensington Oval while Windward Islands, fifth on 16 points, clash with Combined Campuses and Colleges at the National Stadium in Grenada.
