The Windward Islands Volcanoes are on 256/5 at lunch time against the Jamaica Scorpions on the final day of their Cricket West Indies Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day tournament at Sabina Park, in Kingston, this afternoon.

The tally means the Eastern Caribbean side are just 31 runs away from victory.

Batsman Kirk Edwards is the top scorer in the innings, going for 76, after he was caught at slip by the Scorpions' Jermaine Blackwood, off the bowling of Oshane Thomas on the stroke of lunch.

Kavem Hodge, 49, and Alick Athanaze, 0, are the Windwards' batsmen at the resumption of play.

Scores in the game so far: Scorpions 210 and 189. Volcanoes 113 and 256/5.
