‘Chanders’, Jeffers punish Bangladesh


A blazing century from Shane Jeffers and a typically resolute unbeaten half-century for St Kitts and Nevis were the highlights on Day two of the three-day warm-up match, yesterday.
Jeffers led an onslaught of the visitors bowling with 118 off just 131 balls with 22 boundaries as the home side closed the second day on 232-4 in reply to 377-7 declared. Chanderpaul, a guest player for this match, ended on an unbeaten 70 and will resume today looking for a century. With him is allrounder Jeremiah Louis on one not out.
Chanderpaul and Jeffers came together in the middle session and added 51 for the third wicket. After Jeffers fell --caught at short backward square, Tonito Willet joined Chanderpaul and they added 65 for the fourth wicket on a good batting surface. Willet made 21 but fell to a sharp catch at short leg, just when he looked set to puch on the score.
Earlier in the day Bangladesh declared at 377-7. The innings was boosted by a seventh-wicket stand of 191 between skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (106 not out) and allrounder Nasir Hossain (100).
