Guyana batted first to register a competitive total of 150 all out in 48 overs, before returning to dismiss Jamaica for 50 in 41.1 overs. It was Guyana third win in four matches, their second game was washed out against Barbados.
They will play points leaders Trinidad and Tobago today at the said venue in a must win scenario that would see them enter the record book as being the team to complete a ‘three peat’ for their country, having already won the title in 2014 and 2015.
Sachin Singh and his troops must get it right if they are to complete the task against a Trinidad and Tobago team that has been playing well.
In the other two games on Monday, Barbados destroyed Windward Island by 99 runs and Trinidad hammered Leeward Islands by 114 runs. Scores in those matches are as follow, Barbados 239-5 in 50 overs won against Windwards 140 all out in 41.5 overs. Trinidad 223-7 in 50 overs defeated Leewards 109 all out in 40.2 overs.
