Hetmyer Smashes Century To Help Guyana Jaguars Storm Into Super50 Cup Finals
Fast bowler Ray Jordan had a three-wicket spell that cause major problems for Guyana in the early stage. The highlight was the wicket of Leon Johnson, who tried to hook a sharp bouncer but was spectacularly caught by Kevin Stoute, who ran in from long leg and held the ball inches from the ground.
When the Windwards batted under lights, Alick Athanaze top scored with 58 off 75 balls as they were bowled out 210 with 22 balls remaining. Left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie, the tournament's leading wicket-taker, took the key wickets to finish with 4-53 while another left-armer Chandrapaul Hemraj took 2 for 35.
"We had a wobble there in the middle and we lost four quick wickets but our international players, Hetty and Raymon, showed their class today. They dug us out of that hole. We've asked the senior players to put their hands up at crucial times and they did that today," Johnson said.
"It's a big occasion on Saturday when we meet Trinidad and Tobago in the final. I know we will get a lot of support from the people back home and we believe we have what it takes to win. It would be something special to bring smiles to the faces of the fans," he said.
