TAROUBA, Trinidad:

Right-handed batsman Brandon King scored an unbeaten half century to guide the Jamaica Scorpions to 219 for seven, a lead of 82 runs against the Windward Islands Volcanoes at lunch on day two of their West Indies Championship match at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy.

King will resume on 53, which has so far come off 62 balls. Wicket-keeper Aldane Thomas is not out on 20, as the pair has so far shared in a 58-run unbroken eighth-wicket partnership.

The Jamaicans, this morning, lost night watchman Marquino Mindley for five after which pacer Josh Thomas sent back Paul Palmer for 15. Thomas then struck again when he had Derval Green caught at cover for a duck.

Thomas has, so far, taken three wickets for 39 runs with Preston McSween bagging three for 75.
