KINGSTOWN, St Vincent – Left-handed opener Devon Smith continued to force his way into West Indies contention, striking his third century in 6 innings here Sunday to power Windward Islands to a strong 7-wicket victory over Guyana.
He finished unbeaten on 110 as the hosts, chasing a moderate 199 for victory, reached their target off 46.5 overs at the Arnos Vale Stadium in the third round of the Regional Super50. The 31-year-old, who has not played for West Indies in nearly 2 years, hammered 11 fours and a six off 144 balls to anchor the innings.
He put on 45 off 72 deliveries for the second wicket with Andre Fletcher who hit 25 off 37 balls, before negating any hope of a Guyana comeback in a 113-run, third wicket partnership with Keddy Lesporis who scored 41 from 75 deliveries.
Earlier this month, Smith struck a century in each innings of the first round Regional Four-Day contest against Combined Campuses and Colleges, and followed up with 99 against T&T in the Super50 just over a week ago.
Guyana had earlier suffered a mid-innings slump despite half-centuries from Trevon Griffith (55) and Leon Johnson (52). The pair put on 93 for the second wicket after Rajendra Chandrika was run out in the fourth over for 4 with the score on 18 for 1. Griffith faced 76 balls and struck just 2 fours while Johnson lasted 84 balls and counted 5 boundaries.
However, once they were separated, Guyana lost 4 wickets for 4 runs to slump to 115 for 4 to lose their way. Chris Barnwell then rallied the innings with 35 from 56 balls, belting a four and a six before departing in the penultimate over.
Off-spinner Dalton Polius (2-16) and fast bowler Nelon Pascal (2-36) picked up two wickets apiece.
