King Withdraws From Scorpions’ Squad

Former captain, Paul Palmer Junior has been called-up to replace middle-order batsman Brandon King in the Jamaica Scorpions line-up for the remainder of the regional Super50 tournament.

King has been withdrawn from the Scorpions squad after picking up a hamstring injury.

The stylish right-hander has only featured twice for the scorpions during the tournament, scoring 48 and 21 against the CCC Marooners and the Guyana Jaguars, respectively.

Meanwhile, Palmer, who is yet to play for the Scorpions during the current regional season is one of only three batsmen to score a hundred during the Scorpions’ trial matches.

The Jamaican franchise will next be in action on Sunday when they take on the CCC Marooners at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.
