KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaica Scorpions require 158 runs to beat four-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars in the West Indies four-day cricket match at Sabina Park.

The Scorpions will begin their run-chase shortly when the final session of day two begins.

Scores: Jaguars 158 (55.4 overs) & 138 (40 overs); Scorpions 139 (35.4 overs)

Earlier, the Scorpions resumed their first innings from overnight score of 108-6, but they suffered a blow when batsman Kenroy Williams, who was not out on four, could not resume his innings due to illness.

It was left to Assad Fudadin to continue from his score of 31 to lead the hosts with 43 not out.

Swing bowler Clinton Pestano was the Jaguars' best bowler with 4-31.

When the Jaguars batted a second time they were tumbled over for 138 on the stroke of tea time, giving them an overall lead of 157 runs. The Scorpions' experienced pacer Jerome Taylor captured 4-26, while debutant spinner Akim Fraser took 4-65 to finish with eight wickets in the match.
