Champion off-spinner Sunil Narine wrecked Guyana Jaguars with a remarkable six-wicket haul as Trinidad and Tobago Red Force stormed to an emphatic 135-run victory in the final of the NAGICO Super50, to claim their 11th regional one-day crown here Sunday night.
Chasing 201 for victory at Queen’s Park Oval, Jaguars collapsed from 36 without loss to 65 all out off 24 overs, with the ruthless Narine scything through the innings to finish with six for eight from eight overs.
Opener Trevon Griffith top scored with 31 from 28 balls with six fours but once Narine removed him in the seventh over, caught by Kieron Pollard at first slip, the innings plunged into terminal decline, with the visitors losing their last ten wickets for 29 runs.
Griffith was the only batsman to reach double figures for Guyana.
Jason Mohammed, who had earlier stroked a brilliant unbeaten 117, supported with two wickets for three runs with his off-spin while seamer Dwayne Bravo finished with two for 29.
The victory was Red Force’s first regional one-day title in five years
