Bonner scores century as Scorpions draw with Volcanoes

A second first class century from Nkrumah Bonner saw the Jamaica Scorpions to their second successive draw in the regional 4 day competition as the host played out a stalemate with the Windward Islands Volcanoes at Sabina Park on Sunday.

Resuming on their overnight score of 290-3, the Scorpions lost the wicket of Paul Palmer Jr for 42 and Aldaine Thomas for 4 early on the fourth day. Bonner who was 40 overnight, carried on the fight for the hosts taking the Scorpions pass the 200 run lead on his way to 100 not out.

The Jamaican franchise from there declared their innings at 404-8, setting the Volcanoes 238 runs to win in little over a session. The game was set-up interestingly heading into the last hour and a half of the day’s play as the Volcanoes were 113 for 5 at one stage.

However, a 42 run partnership between Emmanuel Stewart 26 and Keron Cottoy 4 in fading light, resulted in captain John Campbell signalling to the Windward's dressing room with the visitors 155-5. Derval Green picked up 3-30 for a match haul of 6 wickets.

The Scorpions who also drew their first game against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, will next play the Barbados Pride starting on Thursday at Sabina Park.
