Andre McCarthy stroked a brilliant, maiden first-class hundred, and part-time off-spinner John Campbell snapped up four wickets as Jamaica Scorpions rocked Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to take a giant step towards victory on today’s final day of their third-round encounter in the Regional First Class Championship.
The right-handed McCarthy converted his overnight 49 not out into 121 as Scorpions, resuming from 119 for three, posted 291 all out for a lead of 20 runs at Queen’s Park Oval yesterday.
Leg-spinner Imran Khan led the Red Force attack, finishing with seven for 90 to register his 13th five-wicket haul in first-class cricket.
Red Force then easily erased the deficit, coasting to 49 without loss before Campbell engineered a collapse to leave the hosts tottering on 87 for four at the close – a lead of only 67.
