The Jamaica Scorpions managed to stave off defeat by batting out the final day against the Guyana Harpy Eagles in their fourth-round West Indies Championship match at the Diego Martin Sports Complex in Trinidad.

The draw was pretty much sewn up after Tea following a 41-run fifth-wicket partnership between Paul Palmer and Alwyn Williams. The two got out for 26 runs apiece but Palmer soaked up 93 balls, hitting four fours while Williams batted 60 and also hit four boundaries.

Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul bagged three wickets with his spin compatriot Gudakesh Motie taking two wickets.

Final score in the match, Jamaica Scorpions 393 and 271 for six, Guyana Harpy Eagles 584 for seven decalred.
