WITH the 2020 Regional 4-Day tournament at the half-way stage, defending champions Guyana Jaguars have been making individual strides as a number of their players top the stats in both the batting and bowling charts.
Round 5 bowls off today with three matches and looking at the top-performers to date, the Jags despite being in second place have still managed to make an impact in both departments; as a number of their stars were able to break into the top-10 ranks for bowlers and batsmen.
With hundreds seemingly hard to come by this year, Jaguars batsmen have failed to register a triple-digit score to date. Despite three of their batsmen being featured in the top-10 run-getters list following the end of 4 rounds, it is likely that they could wrap up the season among the top overall performers.
All-rounder Chris Barnwell, who has been one of Jags best batsmen since the Super50 last year, leads with 265 runs from the 4 rounds played. The ex-West Indies T20 all-rounder hit 2 half-centuries with a top score of 82 and currently sits in 5th place for the most runs scored to date.
Sixth place goes to gritty opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul who comes in a run behind his teammate with 264 points. Chanderpaul has crafted three 50-plus scores and averages a healthy 44.00 but will need to up his strike rate as he advances.

The last Guyanese to feature in the top-10 is left-hander Chandrapaul Hemraj who currently owns the number 8 position. The Windies Test opener has a pair of fifties to his name and with his record of more than 600 runs under his belt a few seasons ago; he could easily end this season as one of the leading run-getters for his country and possibly the League.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
