Jamaica Scorpions skipper Paul Palmer was full of praise for his players after the eight-wicket win over reigning champions Guyana Jaguars, in the eighth-round West Indies four-day match at Sabina Park.
The Scorpions wrapped up victory inside two days, bowling out the Jaguars for 158 and 138, and responding with scores of 139 and 158-2.
“It’s a pleasurable win because we managed to execute our bowling plans, and then in the second innings we executed our batting plan well. I think we played a good team game,” Palmer said during a post-match interview on Friday.
Debutant off-spinner Akim Fraser had match figures of 8-134 for the Scorpions, while veteran pace bowler Jerome Taylor claimed 7-50.
The Scorpions’ captain was impressed with Fraser for putting in extra work, after fellow off-spinner Kenroy Williams fell ill from the first day.
