Following Guyana’s    114-run victory over Ireland in their opening match in the NAGICO Super50 cricket tournament at the Queen’s Park Oval last Friday night, captain of the victorious Malta Supreme Guyana team, Christopher Barnwell, said the importance of having a strong batting line-up was a priority for his team.
