Warm-up ends in predictable draw
Veteran West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul warmed up for the upcoming Test series against Bangladesh, starting Friday, with a marathon knock of 183 for St Kitts and Nevis against the Bangladeshis in a three-day match which ended in a draw yesterday at Warner Park, in St Kitts.
Chanderpaul, who turned 40 last month, batted for close to seven hours between Sunday and yesterday to help St Kitts & Nevis take a first innings lead.
Continuing from an overnight position of 232 for four, Chanderpaul, who was on 70 not out off 152 balls (195 minutes) overnight, before the final day, led the hosts to 399 all out in reply to Bangladesh’s 377 for seven declared.
The Guyanese left-hander struck 20 fours and two sixes before he was caught by Shuvagata Hom off the bowling of Rubel Hossain after facing 315 balls and spending 412 minutes in the middle. Bangladesh reached 148 for four after 36 overs in their second innings when the game ended. The first Dhaka Bank Test between the West Indies and Bangladesh bowls off at Arnos Vale Multiplex, St. Vincent on Friday.
