Rain-af­fected match ends in tame draw

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Jer­maine Lan­na­man Gleaner Writer

MAN OF the Match John Camp­bell and Sha­caya Thomas fell short of de­served se­cond in­nings half-cen­turies on the fi­nal day of the rain-af­fected Dig­i­cel WICB Four-day Cham­pi­onship clash be­tween Ja­maica Scor­pi­ons and Bar­ba­dos Pride at Sabina Park yes­ter­day.

Camp­bell, the team’s most in­form bats­man, was dis­missed for 49, while Thomas got 43 in his first match of the sea­son.

Fi­nal scores in the drawn match were: Scor­pi­ons 224 and 112 for two. Pride 273. Play was called off at 4 p.m.

Bar­ba­dos, who re­sumed yes­ter­day on 153 for four, got most of their runs from young wick­et­keeper Mario Ram­per­saud, who, re­sum­ing on zero not out, went on to get 36.


For­mer West Indies Un­der-19 left-arm spin all-rounder Fabian Allen, play­ing in his maiden first-class fix­ture, claimed three for 34 while fast bowler Rey­nard Lev­eridge and spin­ners Nikita Miller and Damion Ja­cobs also sup­ported with two wick­ets apiece.

“We lost a lot of time and as such we could not force a re­sult from the game,” Ja­maica cap­tain Miller said.

“But what I can say is that our se­cond in­nings bat­ting was en­cour­ag­ing. The ap­proach by the open­ers was good, each bat­ter was pa­tient, watched what was hap­pen­ing, and ex­pressed them­selves the way I know they can.”

With no tra­di­tional first in­nings points on of­fer, both teams col­lected three points for the drawn re­sult. Bar­ba­dos col­lected nine bonus points and Ja­maica 7.6 bat­ting.

Ja­maica will next play Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Sabina Park next week­end. *K. Stoute c Lev­eridge b Miller 31 +M. Ram­per­saud c Camp­bell b Lev­eridge 36 K. Wil­liams b Allen 2 J.
