The Guyana Jaguars will reignite their oldest rivalry when they face familiar foes Trinidad & Tobago Red Force today in the final of the CG Insurance Super50 Cup. Despite having suffered their only defeat of the tournament against the Red Force, young Jaguars all-rounder Kevin Sinclair is confident that once his side sticks to the game plan and executes, they can pick up the win.
Speaking exclusively to The 592 Dugout, Sinclair noted; “In terms of the final, the guys are up and ready for it, nothing good comes easy. We have to go play hard and smart cricket, the team is positive”.
Reflecting on the batting collapse which saw the Jaguars fall from 106-1 to 187 all out, Sinclair said; “Obviously we’re not looking for that to happen again, we’re taking it game by game. If that does happen, we know what went wrong for us and what we have to do. We have to dig in as a batting group and execute, at no time during that period we were under pressure, if given that situation again, we just have to knock around the ball, pick the gaps and look to put the pressure on them (Red Force).”
The Jaguars have been bolstered by the return of senior left arm leg spinner Veerasammy Permaul and allrounder Raymon Reifer who stroked an attractive 90 in Guyana’s semi-final victory over the Windward Islands Volcanoes.
Game time is 12:30pm today and is a day/night affair.
