Morris rescues Scorpions against Pride

Despite a fighting half century from Romaine Morris, the Jamaica Scorpions’ indifferent batting form was again on display even as the Barbados Pride closed on 15-0 at stumps on day one, replying to the Jamaica Scorpions 269 all out in their third round CWI Regional 4-day Championship match at Sabina Park.

Wicket keeper batter Romaine Morris continued to show good form with the bat, rescuing the Scorpions from a spot of bother at 113-5 to 269 all out.
