Middle-order batsman Jermaine Blackwood will be looking to press on from his decent start, as the right-hander heads into lunch on the first day of the fourth round West Indies Championship match against the Guyana Harpy Eagles at the Diego Martin Sports Complex on 31 in the Jamaica Scorpions total of 90 for three.

Captain John Campbell also started positively as the Scorpions won the toss and decided to bat, however, the left hander fell lbw to off-spinner Kevin Sinclair for 37. Fellow opener Leroy Lugg failed with the bat, as he was caught by Gudakesh Motie off pacer Dimitri Cameron for five.

Sinclair picked up his second wicket of the innings when he trapped Oraine Williams in front for a first-ball duck.

Left hander Paul Palmer is the other not out batsman on 12. The Scorpions brought in Oraine Williams to replace Nkrumah Bonner with Alwyn Williams coming in for Brandon King.
