CricketFilePhoto-1GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Emerging leg spinner Gudakesh Motie unleashed his best bowling effort in only his second first-class match as Guyana Jaguars continue to stamp their authority over Leeward Islands Hurricanes on the third day of their second round match in the Regional First Class Championship at the National Stadium at Providence here yesterday.

Motie, 20, produced a six-wicket haul that destroyed the Hurricanes first innings for a paltry 85 runs, 334 runs short of Guyana’s mammoth first innings total of 419 for nine declared.

However half centuries from Nkrumah Bonner and Daron Cruickshank inspired a courageous fight back, lifting the visitors to 215 for three in their second innings, after Jaguars enforced the follow on.

Still, Leewards trail by 119 runs with seven second innings wickets in hand and are likely to play for a draw when the match enters its final day today.
