Resuming after lunch at 165 for six, still needing 44 runs to make Jamaica bat again, the Volcanoes were blown away for 195 with Merchant bagging a career-best five for 72 and Green also getting career-best figures of five wickets for 46.

Captain Kavem Hodge top-scored with 63 for Volcanoes before he was bowled by Green.
