Off-spinner Plaffiana Millington was the best bowler with two for 41.Earlier, Guyana made heavy weather of their innings and never really got going, despite Shemaine Campbelle’s top score of 25 and Melanie Henry’s 21.Henry and Lashuna Toussaint (7) put on 28 for the first wicket, but the partnership consumed 67 balls and set the momentum for the innings.Off-spinner Karishma Ram-harack (2-14) and slow medium Felicia Walters (2-22) finished with two wickets apiece.last_img read more
