Brown half-century rescues Scorpions on opening day against Hurricanes

Thu, Mar 21, '24



Opener Carlos Brown stroked a polished unbeaten half-century to help resuscitate the Jamaica Scorpions first innings on the rain-affected opening day of their West Indies Championship match against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at Sabina Park.

The St Catherine CC batsman will resume today’s second day on 68, with the Scorpions 173 for six after being asked to take the first strike.
