GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC): Test spinners Veerasammy Permaul and Devendra Bishoo bowled Guyana Jaguars to an emphatic innings and 54-run win over Jamaica Scorpions and to their second Headley-Weekes Trophy in as many seasons here yesterday. Starting the penultimate day well poised for victory with Scorpions on 171 for five in their first innings, Jaguars bowled the visitors out for 231, then bundled them out again for a paltry 134 in their second innings after enforcing the follow-on, to pull off a resounding victory at the National Stadium. Left-arm spinner Permaul claimed five for 36 and leg-spinner Bishoo, three for 43, as they combined to wreck the Scorpions second innings. Andre McCarthy, with 21, was the only player to make it past 20 in a miserable batting effort. Jaguars, who entered the final round seven points ahead of main challengers Barbados Pride, ended the season on 149 points while Pride, who also won by an innings over Leeward Islands Hurricanes in Basseterre, finished on 142 points. The title conquest was a historic one as it marked the first time Guyana had ever won back-to-back four-day titles and captain Leon Johnson said Jaguars were thrilled. “We’re very proud. We’re very happy about it,” Johnson said afterwards. “We put in a lot of hard work, not just this season but last season and it has paid off.” He added: “I think this year we played better than we did last year. We managed to be unbeaten (while) last year we lost a game and drew one so I think we learnt a lot from that and brought it into this year’s competition and you can see the rewards of that.” Jaguars were clinical in the morning session, removing the last five Scorpions wickets for 60 runs to end the innings on the stroke of lunch. Meanwhile, Test left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican proved his worth with a six-wicket second innings haul as Barbados Pride pulled off an emphatic innings and 93-run victory over Leeward Islands Hurricanes. Warrican claimed six for 102 to finish as Hurricanes, resuming the day at Warner Park on 18 for one, were dismissed for 224 on the stroke of the scheduled tea interval. He finished with match figures of nine for 135. Captain Orlando Peters top-scored with 60, Jahmar Hamilton got 33 and Jeremiah Louis 26, but Hurricanes failed to recover significantly after plunging to 82 for five just before lunch. AT THE NATIONAL CRICKET CENTRE IN COUVA, Trinidad: Windward Islands Volcanoes, set 166 for victory, reached eight without loss against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force yesterday. Scores: RED FORCE 211 (Narsingh Deonarine 91 not out, Imran Khan 39, Kyle Hope 28; Larry Edwards 4-77, Kyle Mayers 3-37) and 243 (Kyle Hope 57, Yannick Ottley 55, Imran Khan 46; Liam Sebastien 5-63, Tyrone Theophile 2-26). VOLCANOES 289 (Devon Smith 127, Tyrone Theophile 75, Kyle Mayers 37; Imran Khan 4-93, Rayad Emrit 3-59, Jon-Russ Jagessar 3-74) and eight without loss.
