‘K’ we go
Barbadians had something to shout about yesterday.
Two of the island’s leading batsmen featured in a century partnership on the opening day of the first Digicel Test between West Indies and Australia at Kensington Oval.
Kirk Edwards, in his new role as vice-captain, and opener Kraigg Brathwaite put on 104 for the second wicket in helping the hosts make a satisfactory start to the match by reaching 179 for three at the close of a rain-shortened day.
Edwards hit 61 and Brathwaite 57, the pair teaming up to produce the first century stand by two Barbadians in a Test since 1999.
