KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, boosted by fast bowler Anderson Phillip's hattrick, have taken command of the fourth-round West Indies four-day cricket match against hosts Jamaica Scorpions at Sabina Park.

At the close on Friday's second day, the Red Force were 62-2 in their second innings, giving them an overall lead of 153 runs with eight wickets intact. Left-hander Darren Bravo is not out on 20. With him is night watchman Khary Pierre on two.

Before then, the visiting team had knocked off the Scorpions for a mere 112 in their first innings. Aside from the impressive bowling of Phillip and the Scorpions' pathetic batting display, the Red Force's 91-run first-innings lead had a lot to do with a stubborn 78-run partnership between Yannic Cariah and Pierre for the eighth wicket.

Spinner Nikita Miller grabbed 5-62 for his 33rd five-wicket haul in first-class cricket in the Red Force's first innings 203.

Scores: Red Force 203 (66 overs) & 62-2 (29 overs); Scorpions 112 (38.3 overs). Sanjay Myers
