JCA Senior Cup semi-finalists decided

2017 beaten finalist Melbourne will face St Catherine CC while UWI will take on Manchester in the semi-finals of the JCA two day Senior Cup cricket competition following last weekend's round of matches.
Melbourne was the only team to score an outright win, as they defeated Westmoreland by 8 wickets.

Resuming day two on 185-6 in response to Westmoreland's first innings 208, Melbourne got up to 262 all out. In their second turn at bat, Westmoreland could only muster 146, with Christopher Lamont claiming 4-51 as only Shahid Crooks following up on his 72 in the first innings with 70, offered any resistance. Needing 93 for victory, Melbourne coasted to 97-2. Jamaica Scorpions player Asad Fuddadin stroked 57 in guiding the chase. That set up a date with St Catherine Cricket Club who got the better of Kensington on first innings.

Resuming on 119-2 in response to 335 made by Kensington, St Catherine were led by Peat Salmon's 113, as they posted 378 all out when the game was called off. Kennar Lewis was the next best scorer with 70 while overnight batsmen Horaine Williams and Gavin Wallace made 67 and 52 respectively.

UWI made their way to the final four also on first innings over St Catherine Parish on the back of Rovman Powell's 97 at Mona Bowl. St Catherine Parish were first dismissed for 258 but Powell was supported by Nicholas Walters with 60 in their 272-5 when play was called off as Coi Thompson picked up 2-55.

They will play Manchester in the second semi-final as they gained first innings points over St Ann in an exciting finish. Manchester resumed on 178-9 and were bowled out for 185, then dismissed St Ann for 155. Batting a second time, the home team were bundled out for 119 with Jamaica Under -15 captain Sanjay Walker scoring 36 not out.

St Ann chasing 149 for an outright win, were struggling at 78-5 when the game ended as David Powell bagged 4-21. The semi-finals will take place on April 21 and 22.
