Brath slams his first Test ton
Patience is a virtue. Especially in Test cricket.
Kraigg Brathwaite proved that yesterday.
The 21-year-old Barbadian may still have detractors regarding the speed, or lack thereof, of his run gathering, but that was all forgotten yesterday when Brathwaite scored his maiden century for the West Indies.
The former Combermere schoolboy and current Barbados four-day skipper batted slowly but smoothly almost the entire day on the second day of the second Test against New Zealand at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad, eventually reaching his historic landmark just before 5 p.m. as the West Indies strengthened their position against the Black Caps.
Braithwaite scored 129, as the regional side reached 310 for five in their first innings, on a day when Darren Bravo also reached three figures on his home ground. (BA)
