The Leeward Islands Hurricanes completed a massive 134-run win over the Jamaica Scorpions, in their Regional Four-day game at Sabina Park on Saturday March 2nd, to consolidate their spot at second in the table.
The visitors resumed on Saturday on 171 for three, an overall lead of 131. They stretched their total to 312 with good contributions coming from several players.
Casey Karty held the middle order together with a patient 68. Rahkeem Cornwall blitzed his way to 52 from 63 balls with some audacious stroke play, while captain Kieran Powell, batting at seven, after being off the field for a long time due to illness, made an assured 54.
Devon Thomas had scored 65 on the second day, which meant that four of the Hurricanes top seven batsmen made half-centuries in their second innings.
Bowling for the Scorpions, off spinner Akim Fraser took three for 82, Gordon Bryan claimed three for 65, while Nikita Miller’s four for 95 meant that he finished with 11 wickets in the game.
Scores: Scorpions 250 and 138, the Hurricanes 210 and 312.
The Scorpions will close out the four-day season by hosting Barbados Pride this weekend.
