Brendan Nash stroked an impressive century yesterday as Jamaica’s players warmed up in a practice match at Kensington Park for next weekend’s Carib Beer Challenge Final.

Jamaica will play Trinidad and Tobago in the five-day final.

The Australian-born Nash hit 136 retired out to lead Tamar Lambert’s Eleven to a commanding position at stumps on the second day of the three-day fixture against David Bernard’s Eleven.

Replying to 269 by Bernard’s Eleven, Lambert’s Eleven closed their first innings reply on 348 for five after they had resumed on 69 without loss.

National openers Brenton Parchment score 59 and Shawn Findlay score 72, both scored half centuries to support Nash.

Bowling for Bernard’s Eleven, leg-spinner Gavin Wallace picked up two for 77.
