Team Miller’s X1 Wins Competitive Final Practice Match

Nikita Miller’s X1 defeated Paul Palmer’s X1 by 2 runs in the Jamaica Scorpions final practice game at the Kensington Park as players prepared to leave Jamaica on Saturday for Barbados where they will contest  Zone ‘B’ of the regional Super 50  tournament.

Batting first, Miller’s X1 posted 221 with Chadwick Walton top-scoring with 52 and Devon Thomas getting 28 against 2 wickets apiece from Gavon Brown and Jason Dawes.

In reply, Miller picked up 4-40, while John Campbell pocketed 3-17 in dismissing Paul Palmer’s X1 for 219. Guyanese Trevon Griffith top-scored with 56 and Steven Taylor made 41.

“It was a good competitive game today (Wednesday) and these are the type of games you want because it shows exactly where you are but the two teams didn’t bat out their 50 overs so we are still not utilizing all the deliveries we are facing but we think we’ll do well in the competition (regional Super 50),” Head coach Robert Samuels reportedly said.

Team Jamaica Scorpions will compete in the group comprising Barbados Pride, Guyana Jaguars, the ICC Americas and the Combined Campuses and Colleges.
