The Demerara Pitbulls, with the ability to strike the ball to all parts of the ground, romped to victory in the first-ever Guyana T10 Blast by defeating Essequibo Jaguars by two wickets in rapidly fading light on Monday evening at the Enmore Community Centre ground, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
Having won the toss, the Pitbulls put the Jaguars in to bat first, and restricted the Jaguars to 96 runs for the loss of six wickets. Kevon Jawahir and Dwain Dick top-scored with 29 runs each, while Seon Glasgow contributed 21 runs to the Jaguars’ total.
Keon Sinclair and Leon Swamy, prolific with their line-and-length consistency, destroyed the Jaguars’ batting attack; and with a target of 97 runs set by the Jaguars from their allotted 10 overs, Pitbulls’ Junior Sinclair displayed his ball-striking ability in establishing the foundation for his team.
