Jamaica Scorpions Make Two Changes For Next 4-Day Outing

The Jamaica Scorpions have made two changes to their 15-man squad for the upcoming regional four-day match against the Windward Islands Volcanoes at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium in Tarouba next Wednesday.

West Indies batsman Brandon King and wicketkeeper-batsman Aldaine Thomas have been drafted into the squad that sits bottom of the six-team table after defeats to the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and the Barbados Pride.

King, along with batsman Nkrumah Bonner, will only be available for the Volcanoes clash, as they are expected to join up with the senior West Indies team for their tour of the Netherlands and Pakistan later this month.

Batsmen Alwyn Williams and Brad Barnes are expected to join the team in Trinidad, to replace King and Bonner for the final two rounds against the Guyana Harpy Eagles and the Leeward Islands Hurricanes.

Head coach Andre Coley is hoping that the injection of the experienced King and Thomas can shore up the team’s batting, to complement the consistent bowling unit.

“I believe everybody appreciated the fact that we underperformed in the earlier rounds against Trinidad and Barbados. We are looking for more consistency, especially from our batting,” said Coley.

Brandon King Batsman

Jermaine Blackwood Batsman
