BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — Tagenarine Chanderpaul hit a half-century that put the grind on a listless Barbados Pride attack to tighten the grip of newly crowned champions Guyana Jaguars on their Regional 4-Day championship match yesterday.

The left-handed opener was unbeaten on 66, as Jaguars reached 154 for four in their second innings, when bad light stopped play 20 minutes past the scheduled close on the third day of their ninth-round match at Kensington Oval, for an overall lead of 252.

Chanderpaul, whose 197-ball innings in just under five hours includes a mere five boundaries, shared solid stands of 44 with fellow left-handed opener Chanderpaul Hemraj for the first wicket and 73 with Vishaul Singh for the third wicket.

West Indies Under-19 World Cup winner Chemar Holder has been the most successful Pride bowler with 3-56 from 18 overs.

This followed West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach hitting the top score of 51, as the Pride surrendered a first innings lead of 98, when they were bowled out for 199 in their first innings.

He shared a rearguard of 52 for the eighth wicket with Jomel Warrican that offered Pride hope of reach the 200-run mark and earning a batting point, but they fell agonisingly short.
