Captain of Jamaica Scorpions, Paul Palmer, says the team will not be taking the Leeward Islands Hurricanes lightly heading into their fourth round WICB First-Class Championship clash at Sabina Park today.

The Scorpions with two wins, and one loss, are presently second in the six-team standings, while the Leewards with three defeats from as many starts are at the foot of the table.

"We will be going to play hard, positive cricket, and don't take anything for granted," stated Palmer.

The Scorpions, coming off an impressive six-wicket win away to the previously unbeaten Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, will enter the contest with two changes to their 13-man squad.

Out goes wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton and fast bowler Jason Dawes, while in comes Carlton Baugh Jr, and left-arm quick Sheldon Cottrell.

Walton is sitting examinations at the University of the West Indies, while Dawes has been the least effective pacer in the squad so far.

Baugh Jr makes a return after being overlooked for the Trinidad clash, while it is the first-time that Cottrell, who had been nursing a injury, has been called upon this season.

The Hurricanes, with Jamaican Nkrumah Bonner in their line-up, in the meantime, has also made two changes to their squad, which lost controversially inside two days against the Windward Islands Volcanoes last time out.

"We will enter the game with a positive attitude and mindset, and then take it from there," Leeward Islands coach, Reginald Benjamin, said.
