Rahkeem Cornwall struck another stunning hundred but teenaged seamer Keemo Paul snatched his maiden regional One-Day five-wicket haul, to engineer a collapse and lift Guyana Jaguars to a dramatic 18-run win over Leeward Islands Hurricanes late Sunday.

Chasing 299 for victory in their Group B match of the Regional Super50 Festival, the Hurricanes were cruising at 248 for four in the 39th over, with Cornwall ripping into the Jaguars bowling en route to a brilliant 119.
