Double ton for Kraigg

Social Share

ARNOS VALE, St Vincent (AP) – Opener Kraigg Brathwaite compiled an unbeaten 205 as the West Indies reached 407 for three against Bangladesh at the close of a rain-hit second day of the opening cricket test at Arnos Vale Sports Complex today.

The hosts, 264 for three overnight, were stalled by persistent morning rain that wiped out play before lunch.

But once play got underway at 1:30 p.m. local time, Brathwaite continued where he left off from day one and stretched his second test ton to a career-best first-class score.

The dogged 21-year-old, 123 overnight, brought up his double century in the penultimate over of the day with his 14th boundary. The right-hander’s innings spanned 437 balls and nine hours, ten minutes.

Brathwaite and veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul (51) stretched their fourth-wicket stand to 146 unbroken in the 56 overs available during the day.
