Scorpions crash out of Super50 at semi-final stage

The Jamaica Scorpions will have their wait extended to win their first regional Super50 title since the 2011-2012 season after going out in the semi-final against the Guyana Jaguars on Thursday evening. After winning the toss and choosing to bat, the Scorpions posted 272-8 from their 50 overs with Nkrumah Bonner top-scoring with 76.

John Campbell also chipped in with 56. Clinton Prestano led the way with the ball for the jaguars with 3-56 from 10 overs. In reply, the Jaguars got to their target with one ball to spare. Leon Johnson led the way with his first List "A" century in a knock of 101. Jerome Taylor took 3-44 while Nikitta Miller took 2-36.

Batting first, the Red Force were bowled out for just 92 off 33 overs as Dwayne Bravo made 27 in his final match having announced his retirement on Thursday. Kieron Pollard with 16 and Rayad Emrit with 15 were the only other players to get into double figures against 5 for 18 from Akeem Jordan. The Marooners then made light work of the target as Kjorn Ottley with 39 not out and captain Carlos Brathwaite with an unbeaten 29, steered them to victory off just 16.2 overs.
