The WICB Professional Cricket League Regional Four-day match between Jamaica Scorpions and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force took an interesting twist when the game was suspended due to a wet pitch at approximately 10.28 a.m. on Thursday. 

Play at Sabina  Park has not resumed in the post-lunch session and it is still unclear when action will resume on today's opening day of the four-day game. 

In the first half-hour of the day's play a few deliveries took off dangerously  from a length and umpires Deighton Butler and Christopher Taylor ruled that the pitch was unsafe for batting.

Before the suspension of play, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force batsman Darren Bravo, who is unbeaten on six, repeatedly complained to the umpires. The on field officials, after consulting with third umpire Christopher Wright and match referee Denovan Hayles,  for approximately ten minutes, agreed to call a halt to the proceedings.

  Trinidad and Tobago were 23 for two after being asked to bat by the hosts who won the toss.
