DEFENDING champions Guyana served Jamaica one of their worst defeats in Regional Under-15 history as the host side won by nine wickets in their 50-over contest at the Albion Sports Complex ground yesterday.
Led by skipper and match MVP off-spinner Ashmead Nedd, who grabbed 3-3 from three overs while pacers Qumar Torrington (2-7), Haifa Walters (2-14) and Alphius Bookie (2-2) assisted in bowling out the Jamaicans for just 27 runs.
Guyana were victorious in 7.5 overs as they reached 28-1, with the assistance of 11 extras by the Jamaican bowlers.
When the chase began, Sinclair and Robin Williams (2) were surprisingly docile due to winning without any batsman scoring a boundary. After Williams was caught by Seymour off the bowling of Andre Blake (1-12), Sinclair and Orlando Jailall (2*) saw the ship home.
Guyana, who earned 6.6 points following their win against Leewards, gained another 6.6 points, taking their total to 13.2.
Guyana will now look to retain their title in commanding fashion when they face Windwards at the Guyana National Stadium in the last round set for tomorrow.
