Volcanoes (200) vs Scorpions 43-0 in Kingston, Jamaica

Miller, the most successful bowler in the history of the Windies first-class championship, captured 5-60 from 29 overs with his steady left-arm spin, as the Volcanoes were bowled out inside the first hour after tea.

Playing only his second match of the season, due to a medical procedure during the off-season, he carved up the Volcanoes batting after he belatedly brought himself into the attack on a pitch that was offering assistance to the spin bowlers from early.

But Smith, the most prolific batsman in Windies first-class history, slammed an undefeated 116 and was the only Volcanoes batsman that offered prolonged resistance to the Scorpions’ bowling.

He became the first batsman this season to pass 400 runs and batted just under five hours for his 26th Regional 4-Day and 31st first-class career hundred that came from 254 balls and included seven fours and four sixes.

John Campbell, bowling his uncomplicated off-spin, supported Miller in the demolition of the Volcanoes batting with 3-38 from 14 overs.

Campbell returned to finish not out on 37 and Trevon Griffith was not out on five, as the Scorpions started their reply strongly before stumps were drawn.
