Jamaica Scorpions were dismissed for 56 in their Digicel WICB Four-day Tournament cricket match at Sabina Park tonight.

The Robert Samuels-coached aggregation were bowled out shortly after tea.

Earlier in the low scoring match, Scorpions fast bowler Jerome Taylor claimed five for 31 to help dismiss the Hurricanes for 71 in their first innings, giving them a lead of 15.

Openers Shacaya Thomas and Chadwick Walton, made one and 12, respectively, Jermaine Blackwood, two, Andre McCarthy, 13, Brandon King, six, Rovman Powell, eight, and Jerome Taylor, one.

Fast bowlers Gavin Tonge, four for 16, and Jeremy Louis, four for four, were the destroyers for the visitors.

The game got underway today after rain and a wet outfield forced an abandonment of Friday's scheduled opening day.
