MEANWHILE? Leon Johnson marked his Caribbean T20 debut for Guyana on Monday with a vital, unbeaten 37, helping his side overcome the several challenges, and leading them to a five-wicket victory over Leeward Islands.
Johnson struck two fours and two sixes from 32 balls, as the Guyanese successfully chased down 135 for victory in the second match of the tournament at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
The left-hander shared a vital 46 for the fifth wicket with Guyana captain Christopher Barnwell that put their side firmly course for victory, after they wobbled to 69 for four. Johnson formalised the result for the two-time regional T20 champions, lofting Lionel Baker over wide long-off for six.
Justin Athanaze gave Leewards a competitive total following a meltdown of their top order, hitting three sixes in the top score of 30 not out from just 15 balls.
