We need to take one game at a time,” Griffith said.The Jaguars have be a dominant force in both departments of the game since the inception of the League, but over the years, and especially this season, the opening slot has been the Jaguars’ main problem – an issue, Griffith is well aware of.To this end, the 38-year-old is appealing for more consistency so that a better foundation can be laid for the rest of the batting unit.Further, Griffith, who represented the country in 22 first-class matches, indicated that the squad for the fifth round will be named today.Tomorrow’s match starts at 09:30hrs and admission into the venue is free.Other fifth round matches will see Leeward Islands Hurricanes host Trinidad & Tobago Red Force at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, while Jamaica Scorpions play host to Windward Islands Volcanoes at Sabina Park in JamaicaThe tournament will again be contested under a round-robin format, featuring 10 rounds of matches, comprising five home and five away fixtures apiece, for each of the six franchises.
