Guyana starts Caribbean T20 campaign in Trinidad with 2 wicket win – 8th Jan 2013
Guyana started its Caribbean T/20 campaign in Trinidad with a nail biting finish off the last delivery of the match. Needing 8 off the final two deliveries Guyana benefited from a no ball which skipper, Permaul, clobbered for six and then scampering a single off the last ball to win by 2 wickets. Narsingh Deonarine top scored with 57 and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 38. Raymon Reifer took 4/32. The CCC had earlier made 159/3. Guyana next play Barbados in 2 days time.
Earlier the Trinidad /Jamaica match was interrupted by rain and had to be abandoned after both teams were tied at the time the rains came . They each got one point for the no result status of that game. The Jamaicans are without explosive opener Chris.
