    Andre McCarthy put in a man of the match performance but couldn’t stop his Jamaica Scorpions from tasting defeat at the hands of the Barbados Pride in their Super50 Cup clash.

    McCarthy took 4/41 in 10 overs as Barbados were bowled out for 265 in exactly 50 overs – Oshane Thomas took 4/52.

    The Pride has 50s from Barbados-born Canada international Nicholas Kirton and Kyle Mayers.

    McCarthy then made 95 while wicketkeeper Aldane Thomas made 41 – however they were the lone shining lights in a dim Scorpions innings.

    Ashley Nurse ran riot grabbing 4/26, Chemar Holder took 3/37, Joshua Bishop bagged 2/54 and Miguel Cummins ended with 1/18.

    McCarthy was awarded for his all-round performance, but Barbados walked away with the 4 points from the encounter.

    Here are the standings as at Friday 8th November 2019.
