Leeward Hurricanes vs Jamaica Scorpions R4D D/N

voiceofreason 2017-03-17 11:14:15 

Should be an interesting encounter with some subplots. This is a day/night encounter with both teams losing big last game, so both need to get back on track particularly Leewards who are on a 3 game losing skid after a decent start.

Last game the Leewards with 10 men lost to a star studded Bajan squad while the Jaguars took the sting out of the Scorpions. Then there is Bonner vs Thomas . Jacobs the leggie vs the Leewards right hand Batsmen. Will Kieran Powell play because he will be crucial vs the Leggie.


JAMAICA SCORPIONS (from): Nikita Miller (captain), Jermaine Blackwood, Damion Jacobs, Brandon King, Andre McCarthy, Marquino Mindley, Paul Palmer Jr, Jerome Taylor, Devon Thomas, Shacaya Thomas, Chadwick Walton

IN-Allen, Powell, OUT-John Campbell, Derval Green

LEEWARD ISLANDS HURRICANES (from): Kieran Powell (captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Jason Campbell, Kaecy Carty, Rahkeem Cornwall, Jahmar Hamilton, Montcin Hodge, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Jeremiah Louis, Jermaine Otto, Gavin Tonge, Hayden Walsh Jr

I can understand the Jamaica score if they batted FIRST and found the wicket devilish. But Jamaica batsmen took no note of how the wicket played. After bowling out their opponent for 71, they went in and BATTED THE VERY SAME WAY!

After losing the entire first day due to inclement weather, the Scorpions won the toss and invited the Hurricanes to take first strike on a slightly damp pitch, with a shade of grass. The decision proved very effective, as the seamers utilised the conditions to their advantage.

I am sorry Chrissy but this is not acceptable by any standard anywhere. Not even in bush league cricket do you see such scores. Our batting across the region is abysmal.

They are already mechanisms in place to encourage higher scores in the 1st innings by awarding incentive points. This is a shit wicket because this same Jamaica team scored 550/7 vs Leewards at Warner Park St. Kitts. Leewards got 243 and 234 in that same match.

Practiced much? I am not sure what you quantify much as but as far as I know this is the first competitive d/n FC match at this venue. You had one day rained out so possibly the wicket was ill prepared.

Men have become too accustomed to flat tracks that poor technique has been exposed when they have to play on an old fashioned wicket.

That is the same all over the cricketing world. I mean seriously your home team created a shit of a wicket for a historical event and you blaming the players? You cannot even get proper coverage of the HISTORICAL match and you blaming the players.

Reasoner I'm Jamaican and I'm not accepting that! Like I stated before, Leewards batted first and posted a paltry 71. It was incumbent on the Jamaican batsmen to play circumspectly in their response, knowing that their natural attacking game wasn't possible on this wicket.

No I haven't seen the match at all. No coverage, remember! But it doesn't take a nuclear physicist to come to the same conclusion. Batting on a bad wicket demands more patience, discipline and concentration than doing so on a normal wicket....

In other words...don't repeat the efforts of the team you bowled out for 71.

Should always be in the team. Has good all-round potential. Athletic Bowler who swings the ball at good pace low 80's and can bat a bit as he showed in the 2nd ininigs and in the Super 50 vs Barbados. He should always be in the team but horses for courses they say. My MOM in this game with 8 wickets and 23 valuable runs. Big error to have left him out of the last game vs BIM as we missed the extra seamer on that helpful wicket.

He is in the SKN Patriots.

aliaskid13 2017-03-20 11:32:10 

The scores from this match make me wonder if there was any real preparation done in either camp prior to this encounter. How much practice did they do, if any at all, with the pink ball under those conditions? This whole game reeks of unpreparedness. It couldn't have been all about the pitch. More often than not, these pitches offer little or no assistance to fast bowlers, and certainly not enough assistance to make every pacer virtually unplayable. So to see fast bowlers totally dominating the game like this makes you wonder what was so different. I mean, as a pacer I'm happy to see us have our day in these times of short boundaries and bats that look like a piece of 4x4 with a handle, and as a Leewards superfan i'll be grateful for any and all victories we get, but this didn't look good for our cricket on a whole.
