Scorpions on the verge of victory against Jaguars

The Jamaica Scorpions have a great chance to register their first win of the regional 4-day competition, heading into Sunday's final day at the Providence Stadium against defending champions Guyana Jaguars. The Scorpions need just one wicket to win as the home team chasing 182 to win, ended day 3 on 155-9.

Pete Salmon has taken an incredible 7-56 for the Jamaican franchise. Jamie Merchant and Patrick Harty took the other wickets. Veerasamy Permaul 20 and Keon Joseph 5, will look to make the 27 runs needed for the Jaguars if they are to achieve victory on the final day.

Earlier, the Scorpions resuming their second innings on 50-3 were bowled out for 184. Nkrumah Bonner top scored with 57, while Merchant chipped in with 26. Permaul took 6-50 for the Jaguars to end with a match haul of 10 wickets. Scores in the match: Jamaica Scorpions 187 & 184; Guyana Jaguars 190 and 155-9.

Meanwhile, at Warner Park in St Kitts, the Leeward Islands Hurricanes trail the Barbados Pride by 207 runs after three days of play. The Pride who resumed day 3 on 108-2, were bowled out 398 responding to the Hurricane's first innings total of 181. 

Shamarh Brooks top scored with 116. He got good support from Shane Dowrich 79, Kyle Mayers 69 and Jonathan Carter an undefeated 47. Rakheem Cornwall took 4-104 for the Hurricanes. At stumps, the Hurricanes closed on 10-0. And rain has once again affected play in the contest between Windward Islands Volcanoes and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force. 

No play has been possible on day 3 at Windsor Park in Dominica due to persistent rain. On day 2, Trinidad declared their first innings on 373-9 with Jason Mohammed and Yannick Ottley both recording centuries. The Windwards were 71-2 at stumps.
