Narine snaps up six as Guyana collapses
Like father, like son! Tagenarine Chanderpaul yesterday showed the cricket world that he is a chip off the old block, as he batted just as solidly as his father Shivnarine, to help put Guyana in a good position, only for mystery man Sunil Narine to stamp his class and give T&T the advantage at the end of the second day of their regional first class clash at the Queen's Park Oval.
After quickly wrapping up the T&T innings for 319 in the morning session, the Guyanese were comfortably placed at 156 for one before Narine underlined his growing reputation with six wickets for 38 runs to leave T&T on the verge of first innings points, and Guyana 124 runs adrift with just one wicket in hand.
T&T lost their last five wickets for just 50 runs after they resumed from the bedtime position of 269 for five. Ramdin, who would have harboured thoughts of getting his 12th first class hundred, walked out to bat on 75 not out, and with him Khan, who was unbeaten on 41.
Khan fell to medium pacer Paul Wintz when he steered a good delivery from the right armer into the safe hands of Assad Fudadin. Khan's contribution of 44 came in 142 minutes off 121 balls with five fours and a six.
Two runs later, Wintz struck again with the wicket of Ramdin, who was caught behind for 84. His solid innings occupied 237 minutes and came off 199 balls with 14 fours.
After his dismissal, Narine played a cameo that brought 24 runs with the help of four fours and this took the score past the 300-run mark. The best of the bowlers for Guyana was skipper Permaul with 4/62, while Ronsford Beaton and Wintz took two wickets each.
When Fudadin (29) was beaten for pace and trapped lbw by Shannon Gabriel, the junior Chanderpaul and Leon Johnson put together 126 for the second wicket to give the Guyanese a solid foundation, only for Narine to undermine all their hard work with a spell of bowling that was accurate and sustained.
Tagenarine (42) batted for three hours and 38 minute, playing a solid hand, while Johnson (87) looked flawless as the pair threatened to take the match away from the hosts.
Tagenarine was dropped by Ramdin on one off Gabriel, but, as has been the hallmark of his dad, was never troubled by the let-off. He and Johnson silenced the small crowd with contrasting styles. While Tagenarine was humdrum, Johnson was lively and elegant.
