Skipper Denesh Ramdin and coach Kelvin Williams said that the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force paid the price for “one bad day” of batting as they crashed to an innings and 217-run defeat against defending four-day champions Guyana Jaguars.

That one bad day—the third day of the Regional Four-Day match at Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba on Saturday—saw 16 Red Force wickets fall as the hosts were dismissed for 120 in their first innings and reduced to 106 for six at stumps after following on, replying to Guyana's 484 for eight declared.

On Sunday, the Jaguars completed their victory by bowling out the Red Force for 147 to stay at the top of the four-day standings.
