KINGSTON, Jamaica – Guyana Jaguars have been praised for their resilience following their capture of the WICB Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day Tournament.

The Jaguars formalized their position at the top of the table with an innings and 10 runs victory over Windward Islands Volcanoes, on Monday, the final morning of the final round of matches at Windsor Park in Dominica. This moved them to 148 points.

“The news of this latest achievement has come as a great delight to all of us at the WICB, and on behalf of the directors, management and staff, we express congratulations and best wishes for continued success to the Jaguars,” said WICB president, Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron.

“This championship is a remarkable achievement and everyone involved must be commended for their hard work. They proved to themselves and everyone else what can be attained with the right level of determination and commitment.”

Cameron said the ongoing successful results on the field underscore the work which the Guyana Cricket Board has done to overcome a number of challenges in recent times.

In congratulating the GCB, the WICB President referenced the successes of the Guyana Under-15 and Under-19 teams, and commended GCB president Drubhadur and his team for again bringing another championship to their country.

Cameron said that the R4Day again highlighted the tremendous talent in the region and he was satisfied that the inaugural season of the PCL had achieved some of its objectives.

“This season, the R4Day was played under a franchise format and there were some teething issues as you can expect with any new system,” he said.

“We have learnt from those experiences and will put things in place to make the next season much more fulfilling, but we are happy with some of the results and the talent exposure that we have seen this year.”

The President urged not just the winning Jaguars team, but every player on every regional team to continue seizing available opportunities to hone their craft, as the leadership does its best to provide the avenues and resources for them to showcase their skills and achieve excellence in the game.
