Condolences are expressed to his family members; friends and sports lovers across the region.

SCORPIONS STING RED FORCE OUT OF FINALS

Defending regional 50 over champions, T&T Red Force, will not be a part of the grand finals for the tournament this year.

Chadwick Waldron and Jermaine Blackwood both struck centuries, while Steven Taylor struck a brutal half century at the top of the innings, during which no bowlers were respected.

The Jamaica Scorpions chalked up a mammoth 432 for

In response, the T&&  Red Force team, limped to 132 all out, with the consistent Jason Mohammed top scoring with  62.

The main destroyer for the Scorpions, was Rovman Powell with his 5 for 36.
