Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3
SHIMOGA: Opener Kraigg Brathwaite helped himself to an unbeaten century as the second unofficial ‘Test’ between India ‘A’ and West Indies ‘A’ meandered to a draw on Saturday. Brathwaite’s 104 not out and Narsingh Deonarine’s languid 93 helped the Windies to 223/3 in 81 overs, as the visitors chose not to declare and have a crack at India’s batting order in the last session.
The Caribbeans had scored 406 in the first innings and dislodged their Indian counterparts for 359 for a slim 47-run lead. But with time running out, all that was to be gained from the fourth and last day was batting practice for the guests, before umpires called off play due to poor light.
Brathwaite has now scored two fifties and a century in the series, with the third and last match to be played at Hubli from October 5. While his approach was staid, the left-handed Deonaraine provided some fireworks as he cracked 13 fours and two sixes, before being trapped by left-arm spinner Bhargav Bhatt, who finished with match figures of 9/217.
Taking things ahead from 43/2, Brathwaite and Deonarine added 144 for the third wicket and thwarted India’s Zaheer Khan-led bowling attack. But the match was a disappointment for Zaheer, his two wickets for 93 coming from 33 overs across two innings.
Used sparingly and in short spells, the left-arm fast bowler did not make much of an impact, and his only wicket on the last day came when he had Kieran Powell caught behind for 14.
Brief scores, 4th day: West Indies ‘A’ 406 and 223/3 in 81 overs (Brathwaite 104*, Deonarine 93) vs India A 359.
