At stumps Leon Johnson is on 11 while Bhaskar Yadram is yet to score.It was a sensational post-lunch spell by Permaul, who captured 6-29 in just 19.5 overs, as the visitors batting crumbled in dramatic fashion after being 76-4 at one stage.Guyanese Assad Fudadin, who opted to play for the Scorpions after refusing a local contract was the top-scorer with 39, and Captain Paul Palmer contributed 31, but the rest of their batsmen couldn’t muster much between them.Veerasammy Permaul six-wicket haul put the Guyana Jaguars in total control after day two. (Adrian Narine photo)However, when play resumed yesterday, the Jaguars’ remaining batsmen managed to survive six overs where they added just eight runs to their overnight total of 258-8.Pacer Derval Green, who finished with figures of 4-63, claimed the final two wickets of overnight batsman, Permaul (3), and Gudakesh Motie, who went without scoring. The other overnight batsman Romario Shepherd was unbeaten on 22.The strong start the Scorpions expected from their openers, however, did not materialise after both Shepherd and Keemo Paul found a good length and steady consistency which eventually left the visitors gasping for breath, at 19-3.Garth Garvey (0), fell LBW to Shepherd off the fourth ball in the innings, while Trevon Griffith (5) went in similar fashion to Paul, at the end of the fourth over.Fudadin was given a reprieve on two, when wicket-keeper Anthony Bramble could not hold on to a difficult chance off Shepherd, but Paul further complicated the tourists’ crisis when he had Brandon King caught at cover for ten.Fudadin and fellow left-hander Paul Palmer, both survived until lunch, with the visitors 37-3.Upon resumption, the pair gave the Scorpions a brief glimmer of hope with a fourth-wicket stand of 57 before the hosts’ left-arm spinners polished off the last seven wickets. Motie complemented Permaul, with figures of 1-7 off nine overs.But despite the Jamaicans falling 18 runs short of avoiding the follow-on target of 116, skipper Leon Johnson decided not to enforce it and batted again.The Jaguars’ openers Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Test discard Rajendra Chandrika batted determinedly and were focused on occupying the crease upfront, but as the final session progressed, the pair gradually began to open up, calmly, without taking any undue risks.But after hitting five fours and a six in his 41-ball knock, Chandrika, the West Indies reject was finally dismissed when he was caught behind off left-arm wrist spinner Dennis Bulli (2-32), for 35.Chanderpaul Hemraj joined Chanderpaul, and the left-handed pair took the score to 85 before the Jamaicans enjoyed further success just before the close.Chanderpaul after occupying the crease for 76 minutes, facing 74 balls with three boundaries, was trapped LBW to spinner, Fabian Allen (1-4), while Hemraj was bowled by Damani Sewell (1-35), for 17.Motie, who was promoted up the order to perform the night watchman duty was dismissed off the last ball in the penultimate over, caught at the wicket off Bulli for nine. However, Yadram joined Johnson and negotiated the final over of play.SCOREBOARDGuyana Jaguars 1st innings (Overnight 258-8)T Chanderpaul c Palmer b Bulli 14R Chandrika c wk Morrison b Green 25C Hemraj c Garvey B Sewell 60L Johnson b Sewell 20B Yadram b Bulli 0A Bramble c Fudadin b Dawes 62K Paul c wk Morrison b Green 12S Rutherford b Sewell 45R Shepherd not out not 22V Permaul c wk Morrison b Green 3G Motie c Garvey b Green 0Extras: (w-1, b-1, nb-1) 3Total: (all out; 96 overs) 266Fall of Wickets: 1-38, 2-51, 3-96, 4-101, 5-132, 6-150, 7-233, 8-251, 9-266, 10-266Bowlers: Dawes 16-8-37-1, Green 21-2-63-4, Sewell 28-9-69-3, Bulli 18.4-2-52-2, Allen 12-0-41-0, Fudadin 0.2-0-3-0last_img
