Carlton Baugh Jr stroked an unbeaten 54 on yesterday's second and final day of the Jamaica Scorpians fourth WICB Professional League trial match at Kensington Park.

The diminutive wicketkeeper, who was dropped towards the latter part of last season after a series of poor scores, was the top scorer for Paul Palmer's XI who played to a draw with Brandon King's XI.

Palmer's XI ended on 183 for seven in their second innings after dismissing King's XI for 238 in their first innings early yesterday.

Palmer's XI made 169 in their first innings.

Other leading scorers for Palmer's XI were Andre McCarthy, 37, pacer Sheldon Cottrell, 20, and leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, 17.

Recent West Indies Under-19 captain, Ramaal Lewis, four for 35, led the way for King's XI with fast bowlers Nicholson Gordon, Brian Buchanan and John Campbell claiming a wicket each.

Earlier, Palmer's XI, who resumed on 125 for three, were restricted by young pacer Rovman Powell, who finished with four for 40.

Fast bowlers Marquino Mindley and Keno Wallace ended with two wickets apiece.

The fifth and penultimate trial match, a three-day encounter, is set for Sabina Park starting next Wednesday.
