CRICKET: Jamaica and Guyana to clash in first semifinal

Published:Thursday | January 22, 2015 | 11:09 AM

Jamaica's cricketers and the Guyana Jaguars will clash in today’s first semifinal of the NAGICO Super50 competition.



The match, which is a day/night encounter, will bowl off at 12:30 a.m. at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago.



Last year, both teams were good enough to reach the final four of the competition, but crashed out as Barbados went on to clinch the title by beating hosts Trinidad and Tobago in the final.



With the disappointment still fresh in their minds, Jamaica are champing at the bit as they chase a spot in Sunday’s final.



Jamaica’s captain Nikita Miller says the team will take a cautious approach going into day’s game.



Jamaica finished second in Group B on ten points, behind T&T Red Force who played unbeaten to top the group.



Jamaica beat Leeward Islands convincingly by nine wickets in their opening game.

However, they went down to T&T by 17 runs in their second match.



Jamaica made sure of their semi-final spot by defeating West Indies Under-19s by nine wickets on Tuesday.
