RISING West Indies star Shimron Hetmyer smashed a maiden regional one-day hundred as Guyana Jaguars made light work of USA Cricket, with an uncomplicated eight-wicket victory in their second match of the Regional Super50 Festival yesterday.
Chasing a simple 189 for victory at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, Jaguars had few hiccups in overhauling their target in the 33rd over, to register their second win in three days.
The left-handed Hetmyer spearheaded the run chase with a typically aggressive 103 from 69 balls – lashing eight fours and seven sixes – while captain Leon Johnson chipped in with an unbeaten 50.
USA Cricket had earlier been restricted to 188 for eight off their 50 overs, after they chose to bat first.
