EMERGING Guyanese opener Trevon Griffith believes playing for Jamaica Scorpions franchise can help to improve his first-class career.

The 24-year-old, who was drafted by the Scorpions earlier this year, has scored only two 50s in seven first-class matches for an average of 13.06.

"I have not had the start to my first-class career that I would have hoped, but I am confident I can turn things around," said Griffith.

"This, particularly, given that I am playing with a good team in Jamaica, and my game keeps on improving from day to day."

attack-minded

Griffith, one of three overseas-based players training with the Scorpions, has had a slightly better start to his regional limited overs career than first-class cricket.

A typically fleet-footed attack-minded left-handed batsman, he has an average of 19.05, including two half-centuries, and, highest score of 62.

This is to add to a strike rate of 99.04 in 14 Twenty20s whereby he has an average of 16.

"I consider myself a good striker of the ball, however, I believe can play either formats of the game well," said Griffith, who in 2009 was the leading runs-scorer in the regional Under-19 three-day tournament.

"It's just for me if given the opportunity to go out there and show the Jamaica selectors what I am capable, and, then take it from there."

Griffith, in the first innings of the sixth and final Jamaica Scorpions Trial match at Sabina Park, made 28.
