Miller & Jacobs spin Jamaica to win over Leeward Islands

ST KITTS, West Indies- Jamaica's duo of Nikita Miller and Damion Jacobs spun a web around Leeward Islands to register a massive 157-run win in St Kitts. 

Left-arm spinner Miller collected 10 wickets while Jacobs picked two three-fors to bundle out Leeward for 232 and 144. Jamaica, however, are still second from bottom on the table after picking 18.4 points from the win.

Jamaica put on a respectable score of 342 after winning the toss, on the back of half-centuries from Paul Palmer (86), Assad Fudadin (58) and John Campbell (57) as offspinner Rahkeem Cornwall's 4 for 86 meant Jamaica didn't put on a competitive total.

The Leeward batsmen could not capitalise though, as Miller's 5 for 56 and Jacobs' 3 for 35 allowed only one batsman - Montcin Hodge - to reach 50, and they conceded a lead of 110.

Cornwall took four wickets again and troubled Jamaica's middle order to restrict them to 191, as No. 7 Derval Green provided resistance with his 51. Jacobs and Miller troubled Leeward with the bat too, putting on 46 for the ninth wicket before combining to take eight wickets as Leeward chased 302 for a win. With only two batsmen reaching 30, they were kept to 144 for only six points but are still second on the table behind Guyana. (ESPNCRICINFO)
