Jamaica Shot to the Top of the Regional Four-Day Championship

Five-time champions Jamaica shot to the top of the Regional Four-Day Championship standings when they inflicted a humbling 93-run defeat on Trinidad and Tobago on Monday.

Playing on the penultimate day of the sixth round affair at Sabina Park, Jamaica bundled out the visitors for a disappointing 193, after earlier setting them 286 for victory.

Once again, they were led by their champion left-arm spinner Nikita Miller who picked up four for 54 while fast bowler Andrew Richardson snatched two for 23.

Rayad Emrit top scored with a cameo 52 and Imran Khan got 36, and resisted the Jamaicans in an 83-run, seventh wicket stand that gave the Trinidadian side hope.

Once Emrit was run out, Jamaicans regained their grip on the match to secure a forceful win and move to 48 points, level with previous leaders Windward Islands.

Earlier, Jamaica lost their remaining wickets for just 75 runs to be dismissed for 259 before lunch, after resuming the day on 184 for four.

Opener Brenton Parchment added just 15 to his overnight 60 as leg-spinner Imran Khan, with five for 28, crippled Jamaica’s lower order.

West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel finished with two for 52.
