Windies batsmen fail to capitalize in second innings of warm-up game

The West Indies' batsmen failed to capitalize in their second innings in Canberra  as their three day warm-up match against a New South Wales X1 ended in a draw on Saturday.

The Caribbean side were 114-4 in their second innings at the Manuka Oval when play was called off. The hosts had declared earlier in the day on a mammoth 426-4.

Opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul, the son of West Indies batting great Shivnarine Chanderpaul, made just 4 after not batting in Windies' first innings effort due to illness.

The Windies were 77-4 before Roston Chase 31 not out and Joshua da Silva 12, ensured no further damage was done.

Earlier, Blake McDonald finished unbeaten on 177 after Oliver Davies had smashed 115 off just 106 balls on Friday in a wake-up call for the West Indian's bowling attack.

Final scores in the match: West Indians 424-9 declared and 114-4, Combined New South Wales X1 – 426-4.

The tourists will play a four-day twilight fixture against a strong Prime Minister's X1 from Wednesday before the first of two test matches starts on November 29 in Perth.
