O'Reilly dazzles in Lions victory

After O’Reilly (4/27) helped Lions restrict the Caribbean side to 148 for nine, Petersen (57) and Cameron (78) shared a 75-ball 133-run second wicket unbeaten stand to help the South African side overwhelm the target with more than four overs to spare.Steven Jacobs was the lone bright spot in Guyana’s batting chart with a 37-ball 34, while skipper Ramnaresh Sarwan (21) was the other notable run-getter.

Chasing a modest 149, Cameron returned to form in style with a quickfire 78 that came off just 42 deliveries, while Petersen also blossomed in the right-hander’s company to score a breezy 38-ball 57 to take Lions home.

Lions, however, started poorly, losing opener Jonathan Vandiar (8) in the third over. But that was the only time Guyana bowlers tasted success as both Petersen and Cameron mixed caution with aggression to help Lions cross the 50-run mark in 6 overs.
Petersen opened up and dispatched Eusan Crandon for a four and a six in the fifth over to accumulate 15 runs. Petersen hit Crandon for two consecutive fours in the 12th over to bring up Lions’ 100.

Petersen completed the proceedings with a four and a six off Lennox Cush in the 15th over.
