Lambert prepares to deliver
Former Jamaica captain Tamar Lambert has said, if given the opportunity, he will bring stability to the middle order of Jamaica Scorpions' batting unit, which has been struggling since the start of the season.
In Port-of-Spain, where the team will play Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, starting today, Lambert made the disclosure after being drafted by the national selectors.
He had missed the Scorpions' opening two matches, away to Barbados and at home to the Windward Islands Volcanoes.
Jamaica, in three of four- innings contest, have passed 200 only once.
"I have been watching, and would have seen some of the performances of the batting, so far, and believe I can make a difference," said the 34-year-old.
"It is just for me to go out there, use my experience and see if I can help to turn things around."
Lambert and wicketkeeper-batsman, Devon Thomas, have been called in to replace young batsman Brandon King, and wicketkeeper, Carlton Baugh Jr.
The change, the selectors, hope, will bring a change in fortunes for the team's batting, which has so far posted totals of 189, 187 259 and 128.
Having finished in the bottom half of the points table for the last two seasons, Jamaica are fourth in the six-team championship behind leaders and defending champions, Guyana Jaguars, Barbados Pride, and the Red Force.
The Windwards are fifth and the Leewards Hurricanes trail.
