HEADLINE: CG Insurance Super50 Cup: Match 12 2021-02-22 12:22:16 

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Jeavor Royal made 38 not out and then took two wickets in a lion-hearted all-round display which helped Jamaica Scorpions beat Leeward Islands Hurricanes at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Friday.

With the Jamaicans on 135-9 in the 38th over, the 22-year-old shared a record last-wicket stand of 85 with Fabian Allen, who made 44 off 42 balls which lifted them to 220 all out. Royal's face-saving knock was one of the best by a Number 11 in the tournament’s history. He hit two fours and two sixes off 40 balls and was named the CG Insurance Man-of-the-Match. Allen also played fluently on both sides of the wicket. He struck three fours and three sixes, before he was last out – well caught by keeper Devon Thomas off Quinton Boatswain.
