Permaul grabs six to keep Guyana in hunt

Georgetown, Guyana, CMC – Veerasammy Permaul’s lethal six-wicket haul wrecked the Windward Islands and set up a dramatic final day of the third round Regional Four-Day contest on Sunday.

The West Indies left-arm spinner picked up six for 42 on Saturday’s third day to bowl Guyana back into the game at the National Stadium, after they had conceded a first innings lead of 94 runs.

As a result, the Windwards staggered to the close at 96 for eight in their second innings, an overall lead of 190 runs. Only Romel Currency with an unbeaten 40 has shown any fight for the visitors who were 43 for six at one stage.

Currency has so far faced 98 balls in 135 minutes at the crease, and counted three fours.

His 38-run seventh wicket stand with Alston Bobb (16) proved invaluable, as it staved off total collapse.

Off-spinner Narsingh Deonarine, who opened the bowling with Permaul, has taken two for 28.

Earlier, Guyana were bowled out for 213 after resuming at 187 for seven, with seamer Kenroy Peters finished with four for 42 after picking up the last three wickets.

The Windwards rut then started when Deonarine trapped the prolific Devon Smith lbw without scoring in the first over of the innings and Permaul followed up, having Tyrone Theophile caught at the wicket, also without scoring in the next over.

Keddy Lesporis (6) gave Deonarine a return catch at seven for three and first innings century-maker Sunil Ambris perished for eight when he popped a catch to Assad Fudadin at short leg off Permaul at 23 for four.

Wickets continued to tumble as Sebastien fell to the Fudadin/Permaul combination for six and Guyana were firmly on top when Lindon James fell for four.

Currency stemmed the flow of wickets in a fighting stand with Bobb, which was ended when the latter was dismissed to give Permaul his tenth five-wicket haul in first class cricket.
