Jaguars resume training; regrouping very important – says Crandon

The Guyana Jaguars have been a dominant force after the first five rounds of the 2015-16 season.

They have already rushed to the top of the table with 85 points, from five wins in an unbeaten campaign to date.

Barbados Pride lie in second position with 63 points, followed by Jamaica Scorpions (53), Trinidad and Tobago Red Force (37), Windward Islands Volcanoes (29) and Leeward Islands Hurricanes (13).

After the game against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, the Jaguars will then travel to Barbados to face the Barbados Pride from February 19, then to St Lucia to play the Windward Islands Volcanoes from February 26.

In the final two rounds, the Jaguars will play Leeward Islands Hurricanes from March 11 in Antigua, before returning home to face Jamaica Scorpions from March 18.

After the first half of the tournament, left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie has emerged as the leading wicket-taker, capturing 34 wickets at an average of 11.73 with four five-wicket hauls and one 10-wicket maul haul.

In the batting department, the diminutive left-handed middle-order batsman, Vishaul Singh, is the Guyana Jaguars leading run-scorer and the competition’s second highest run-getter behind Roston Chase of Barbados Pride.

Singh has chalked up 421 runs, 15 less than Chase, at an average of 60.14 with two hundreds.
