When T&T Red Force take on Jamaica Scorpions in today’s Super50 Cup semi-final, they may have the in-form Nkrumah Bonner to deal with.
That’s because the right-handed all-rounder, who had a spectacular debut Test tour against Bangladesh, has been drafted into the Scorpions’ 15-man squad.
Bonner had scores of 17, 86, 90 and 38 in his four innings in Bangladesh at an average of 57.75.
Bonner is joined by John Campbell, who also took part in that tour, and the duo replaces fast bowler Oshane Thomas and batsman Paul Palmer Jr.
Jamaica, who finished fourth in the group stage with eight points, takes on the yet-to-be-defeated T&T today at 1:30PM.
