Sorry Scorpions

surrender again

KINGSTON, Jamaica, (CMC):

Leg-spinner Imran Khan snatched five wickets as Trinidad and Tobago Red Force piled further misery on Jamaica Scorpions with a 157-run victory early on the final day of their fourth round match at Sabina Park yester day.

Resuming on 108 for five, Scorpions showed precious little resistance, as they folded for 167 in their second innings, to plunge to their third straight defeat of the season.

Test left-hander Assad Fudadin, unbeaten on six overnight, finished on 35 not out, but was the only bright spark for Scorpions, as Imran Khan tore through the innings with five for 59.

He took four of the five wickets, which tumbled for the addition of just 59 runs, with left-arm spinner Khary Pierre taking the other to end with three for 29.

Test batsman Rovman Powell added just 11 to his overnight two, before becoming the first victim of the day with the score on 126, and his dismissal set the tone of the remainder of the innings.

Fudadin, who faced 111 balls and counted four fours, put on 21 for the seventh wicket with Aldaine Thomas (11), which seemed set to frustrate Red Force.

But Thomas lost his patience after spending half-hour at the crease and holed out to long on off Imran Khan, and the end came swiftly, as the last four wickets fell for 20 runs.

The victory was the first for Red Force who had lost both their previous outings
