HEADLINE: Bonner, Merchant sting Pride in Scorpions victory 2019-11-21 10:48:39 

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – Led by Nkrumah Bonner’s fourth List A hundred and a career-best spell from Jamie Merchant, Jamaica Scorpions intensified their bid for a place in the semi-finals of the Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup, when they beat Barbados Pride by 26 runs on Wednesday.

Bonner struck a run-a-ball 112 from that included nine fours and three sixes and shared a record fifth wicket stand of 151 with his captain Rovman Powell to lead the Scorpions to 331 for nine from their allocation of 50 overs in a Group A game at the Conaree Cricket Centre.

Merchant followed up with 4-35 from his allotted 10 overs to run through the Pride top order and fortify the Scorpions hold on the game, after openers Leniko Boucher and Kjorn Ottley gave the Pride a sound start to their chase.

The result meant the Scorpions gained four points, moving them to 16, drawing them level on points with Leeward Islands Hurricanes, but they remain third because of the tie-breaker rules, which give the group hosts the edge.
