GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Jason Mohammed completed his seventh first-class hundred but there was little joy for Trinidad and Tobago Red Force as Guyana Jaguars needed a mere 45 deliveries to pull off an innings and 81-run win in their final-round match here yesterday.

Resuming the final day at the National Stadium on 282 for eight still requiring a further 123 runs to avoid an innings defeat, Red Force were dismissed for 324, with Mohammed finishing unbeaten on 103.

All told, he faced 210 balls in nearly 4-1/4 hours at the crease, and counted 16 fours.

On 92 at the start, Mohammed received great support from Bryan Charles (15) en route to three figures, as the pair put on 30 for the ninth wicket.

Charles finally perished, bowled by left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul in the seventh over of the morning and Anderson Phillip followed in the next over, lbw to seamer Keemo Paul for 11.

Permaul (3-73) and Paul (3-118) finished with three wickets apiece while pacer Sherfane Rutherford (2-21) and left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie (2-73) were not required in the limited play on Sunday.

The wicket for Permaul meant he ended the season with 50 while Paul took his tally for the campaign to 45.

Meanwhile, the defeat was the fourth on the trot for Red Force, while Jaguars racked up their seventh win in 10 matches, to end the season unbeaten.
