KINGSTON, Jamaica — Determined batting from Trinidad and Tobago Red Force Captain Denesh Ramdin and a persistent afternoon drizzle on Sunday ensured Jamaica Scorpions were denied victory in the sixth-round regional four-day game at Sabina Park.

When umpires ruled out the possibility of further play at 4:42 pm on the final day, the Red Force were 163-6, still needing another 129 runs to avoid an innings defeat.

Scores: Red Force 243 (82.5 ovs) & 163-6 (75 ovs); Scorpions 535 (126 ovs).
Ramdin was unbeaten on a 52, while Imran Khan was not out on 17. The two had shared in an unbroken stand of 40 runs for the seventh wicket that soaked up 160 balls.

To make matters worse for the Scorpions, rain, which began 3:06 pm as they closed in for the kill, limited play to only 67 overs on Sunday. And on Saturday, just 56 overs were possible.

The Scorpions pacer Reynard Leveridge, 27, both menacing and fairly accurate during the innings, snared 3-23 off 11 overs.
