Guyana won the West Indies Professional Cricket League Four-Day tournament with a game in hand, by beating the Windward Islands by a n innings and 122 runs in Providence, Guyana.

This is the third consecutive year they have won the first-class trophy.

The Windwards were routed for 95 in 38 overs in their first innings, after they chose to bat.

Guyana’s 19-year-old fast bowler Keemo Paul took career best figures of 6 for 28, reducing the visitors to 28 for 6 in the first 10 overs of the match, after his 22-year-old new ball partner Romario Shepherd dismissed the openers cheaply in the first and third overs.

Shane Shillingford and Sunil Ambris were the only batsmen to pass 15 runs while the others made little contribution to the score.

By the end of the first day, Guyana had taken a 15-run lead. They were finally dismissed for 379 in 112 overs — a lead of 284 runs.

Guyanese batsman Assad Fudadin scored his sixth first-class hundred.

Windwards in their second innings were all out for 146 in 46.1 overs.
