KINGSTON,Jamaica — Hosts Jamaica Scorpions are on the brink of a third consecutive defeat and second on the trot at home in the 2018-19 West Indies four-day cricket championship as they struggled at 108-5, chasing 325 for victory against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Sabina Park on Saturday.

The Scorpions once again squandered a positive start by openers Oraine Williams (56) and Chadwick Walton (26) and as such will enter Sunday's final day of action requiring a further 217 runs with five second innings wickets remaining.

Guyanese-born left-hander Assad Fudadin, not out on six, and Rovman Powell, on two, will return to the middle for the Scorpions.

Scores: Red Force 203 (66 overs) & 233 (92.4 overs); Scorpions 112 (38.3 overs) & 108-5 (37 overs).áá

Earlier, the Red Force, resuming their second innings on 62-2, slipped the grasp of the Scorpions as they went on to post 233, adding to their 91-run first-innings lead.á

Night watchman Khary Pierre led with a patient 46 off 142 balls. Nikita Miller, the slow left-arm orthodox bowler, was again the pick of the Scorpions bowling attack with 7-87 from 32.4 overs to end with match figures of 12-149.á
