Permaul Credits Total Effort
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Left arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul has credited total team effort for Guyana Jaguars crushing victory over Windward Islands Hurricanes in the second scheduled game of the NAGICO Super50 at Queen’s Park Oval here Thursday.
Permaul produced a mesmerising spell to undermine the Volcanoes batting and handed the Jaguars a handsome 142-run victory. Permaul says Jaguars were able to carry their match winning momentum from the regional four-day tournament into the Super 50.
“I think the guys really went out and put 100 percent. I think they all believed their confidence,” said Permaul, who finished with impressive figures of 10 overs five maidens 12 runs four wickets. “I think it was a total team effort .I mixed the ball up and kept the batsmen guessing. I think it was the confidence we gained from the four-day that shifted the momentum into the one-day”.
Windwards were bowled out for 85 in 33.4 overs after the Jaguars totaled 227 for six of their 50 overs. Devendra Bishoo and Captain Chris Barnwell picked up two wickets each with most of the Windwards batsmen scoring less than ten runs.
Rajindra Chandrika hit half-dozen boundaries in 52 from 65 balls while Vishaul Singh scored 49 and Anthony bramble was unbeaten on 43.
“Bramble played a very crucial innings at the bottom,” said Permaul. “Well played. Chandrika as well and Vishual just stick it out there . Once we keep wickets in hand up front we can accelerate at the bottom. We are taking it step by step and hopefully we can come out victorious”.
