Scorpions running out of venom against Red Force

The Jamaica Scorpions are once again staring at a second straight defeat at home in the regional 4-day competition as set 324 to win, they reached 108-5 in their second innings reply at stumps on Saturday’s third day against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Sabina Park. They still require a further 217 runs for victory.

Asad Fudadin 6 and Rovman Powell 2 were the batsmen at the crease at the close. Oraine Williams has so far top-scored with a career best 56 while fellow opener Chadwick Walton made 26. The two had actually put on an 89 run opening stand before the Scorpions suffered a familiar collapse, losing 5 wickets for 15 runs. Pacer Daniel St Clair and spinner Kahry Pierre have taken 2 wickets each so far.

Earlier, the Red Force were dismissed for 233 in their second innings after resuming on 62-2. West Indies batsman Darren Bravo made 38 after resuming on 20 while nightwatchman Khary Pierre carried on to a top-score of 46 from his overnight 2. Jamaican Odean Smith made 25.
