At Liberta, opener Rampertab Ramnauth struck the first century of the tournament with a polished 114 as Guyana produced a superb run chase to beat Jamaica by six wickets.

In pursuit of a challenging 244, Guyana reached their target in the 46th over with Ramnauth stroking 14 fours in an innings lasting 134 balls.

He put on 128 for the first wicket with Jadon Campbell who made 47 off 45 deliveries, and a further 76 for the second wicket with Mavindra Dindyal who stroked 42 from 60 balls.

Jamaica, sent in, had tallied 243 for eight off their 50 overs with Steven Wedderburn getting an unbeaten 74 off 93 balls with seven fours and a six.

With the innings in trouble at 138 for seven in the 34th over, Wedderburn inspired a crucial 84-run eighth-wicket stand with Reon Edwards (15) to get his side past the 200-run mark.

In the other game played at Coolidge Cricket Ground, Windward Islands chased down a paltry 83 to beat Leeward Islands by eight wickets.
