Kieran Powell won his second toss and elected once again to bat first. The captain and Montcin Hodge started the innings cautiously but took advantage of Andre Russell as they combined for 2 sixes and 13 fours in a partnership of 83 before Chris Gayle got the breakthrough, removing Powell for 44.
In came Marlon Samuels and continued where his captain left off. He smashed some lofty blows around the scenic Coolidge Cricket Ground, as he raced to 7,000 first class runs. He finished the innings on 106 not out from 90 balls.
Devon Thomas added a quick 27 after Hodge was out for 61. No heroics for Rahkeem Cornwall in this match as he was caught and bowled by Gayle for 22.
The Leeward Islands Hurricanes finished their 50 overs on 287/5. Chris Gayle had the best bowling figures for the Scorpions, taking 2/41 from 9 overs.
Chris Gayle and Chadwick Walton opened the scoring for the Scorpions, with Walton taking charge in getting to the target. He became the first of Justin Athanaze’s three wickets, when he fell for 30.
Gayle then turned up the flare and he smashed 4 sixes and 4 fours much to the entertainment of the Coolidge crowd. But once again, Athanaze was the man, getting Gayle caught in the deep for 44.
Andre Russell came in and showed he meant business in getting his team over the line and within the required run-rate. He went after the Hurricanes bowling, taking them around the Coolidge Cricket Ground for 6 sixes and 4 fours on his way to a top-score of 76, before Shino Berridge had him going after another big hit.
Jamaica Scorpions reached 264/9 from their 50 overs. Bowling for the Hurricanes, Justin Athanaze finished with 3/28, while Akeal Hosein had 2/33.
